Luxury shoes and accessories brand Charlotte Olympia and cosmetics brand M.A.C Cosmetics have collaborated to present a capsule collection of glamorous makeup essentials. Inspired by the bygone era of old Hollywood glamour, the collection promises to be both timeless and relevant to the modern woman celebrating the ritual of dressing up whilst keeping it practical and minimal for every day use.
To launch the collection Charlotte Olympia will be hosting two in-store events in the Charlotte Olympia Maddox St and the Brompton Cross store in celebration this Saturday (April 2nd). MAC makeup artists on site will be on hand to give guests a complimentary consultancy on how to pick the perfect shade of lipstick and we will serve cocktails, champagne and some chocolate lip treats!
Lipsticks and nail varnishes will be available in seductive shades of red, including Retro Rouge lipstick and To Have or Have Not nail varnish, are perfect to make you feel instantly dressed up. Lofty Brown mascara keeps lashes looking natural and the Sepia cream shadows can be applied with your finger for a less polished look. Overdressed iridescent pigment powder gives a golden glow, whilst traditional blotting paper lets you Shine From the Inside! A gold eyelash curler and mirror compact are just a few of the complimenting beauty accessories which look like they belong on a Hollywood starlet’s dressing table.
The collection is presented in transparent perspex casing highlighted with gold accents, reminiscent of signature Charlotte Olympia design features. The outer packaging showcases a unique in-house print of feminine motifs of eyes, lips and manicured hands, reflecting the mood and mid-century inspiration of the collection.
To complement the makeup collection, Charlotte Olympia has produced a capsule collections of accessories. This includes rubber Mani Pedi slider (to add a little glamour to your beauty salon visits when you go to get a pedicure) and ‘All Dolled Up’ a capsule collection of signature CO silhouettes with the same print as the makeup packaging. All will be available to buy along with the makeup on the 2nd April.
Mark the date in your diary, there’s no better way to spend a Saturday than dolling up and hitting the town – the makeup consultancy is by appointment only and on a first come first serve basis. The collection is available to buy online and in-store.
