The youthful zeal and sophistication of Proenza Schouler is available for the first time in the form of cosmetics, thanks to an exciting partnership with M·A·C. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, the charismatic duo behind the coveted label, have created a collection that captures the essence of the Proenza woman, with confident colors and limited-edition packaging.
“M·A·C has been our biggest supporter for years now,” says Lazaro. “They’ve collaborated with us on our beauty looks backstage each season and truly know our brand. Beauty plays a huge role in what we do, and while we kind of do ‘anti-makeup’ for our shows, we thought it would be cool to put some things out there that the Proenza woman could wear off the runway.”
Lipstick bullets, coverage-perfect Powder Brushes and Pro Longwear Eyeliners gleam with a unique, luxurious, metallic finish. Four Nail Lacquers glide on in creamy, urban hues. And NEW shades of Ombré Blush are being introduced in Sunset Beach and Ocean City—face powders in cool pink and warm peach, fused into fuchsia and coral gradients.
“We started with the language, the DNA and what the packaging should look like, and then evolved it from there,” adds Jack.
