MAC x Apfel

The MAC x Iris Apfel collection is revealed!

The 20-piece line includes bold lip shades like Party Parrot, a bright matte red, and Flamingo, a glossy cream coral. Retina-burning nail lacquers like Toco Toucan, a blue fuchsia, and Orielle Orange, a bold tangerine will also be available. Each handpicked piece is a wonderful tribute to a very rare bird. It’s gonna be a color carnival since MAC will feature Iris Apfel knack for color and eccentricity.

Sucker for red lipstick? You are not the only one…My lips would want to don that bright matte red Apfel lipstick!

Available in US and Canada MAC stores on January 5, 2012

Iris Apfel a 90-year-old business woman from New York, interior designer and fashion icon.

I did some early Christmas shopping the other day and opted to dress down. But decided to put a little oomph! Red lipstick… a woman’s secret weapon.

My favorite shade? MAC Russian Red.

Satchel: Zara

Shoes: Zara

Necklace: Forever 21

Tip: Downplay your eye make up when using a very vivid lip color for that classy look.

Even my son can’t stop staring at my lips. 🙂

NYFW S/S 2012 Beauty

Playing with colors isn’t very famous in the runways of NYFW S/S 2012. New York Designers opted for nudes,browns, muted monochromatic tones as the look for next season.

 Carolina Herrera

 Vera Wang RTW

Ladies, it will be all about the skin.  So go visit your derma, invest on the right concealer and make up base…as  nude will take the streets in Spring 2012.


If you get tired of those browns… try this metallic look as seen in 3.1 Philip Lim Fashion Show. Make up by NARS cosmetics.

Sneak Peek: UrbanDai’s Style Portfolio
