MAC unveils debut make-up collection marketed as gender-fluid with Harris Reed

Famed for their fashion label’s fluidity, Reed has created a collaborative beauty line inspired by ‘glam-rock romanticism’

MAC Cosmetics has created its first-ever make-up collection marketed as gender-fluid.

The collection was put together with British-American fashion designer Harris Reed, who has built their label with fluidity at its centre.

Their work has attracted the attention of Gucci’s forward-thinking Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, and they have dressed the fashion world’s growing icon and Vogue America’s very first cover boy Harry Styles.

Influenced by ‘glam-rock romanticism’, the new collaborative line boasts 70s-inspired colours with Victorian pinks and metallics that celebrate self-expression and are versatile.

Included in the line is a 9-pan eyeshadow palette, three lipsticks, two foundation bases and an eye pencil (from £16).

Meanwhile, designed without the need for beauty tools, Reed recommends applying the products with fingertips.

Speaking about the new collection, MAC’s Director of Makeup Artistry, Terry Barber, described the products as an “updated vision of glam rock and dandyish dressing”.

He added: “The colours are elegantly fluid, with influences ranging from Renaissance painting to the iconic imagery of David Bowie and a young Mick Jagger.

“Think 70s-inspired eye colours gilded with liquid gold, cherubic cheeks with a golden glow and the most perfect mix-and-match tones for an easy stained lip.”
