Fall Beauty 2009: MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics As Seen By Maira Kalman

check it out MAC lovers-- the brand is celebrating artists in every shade and stripe and makeup as art form. MAC has selected three individuals who exemplify this idea through both the subjects they choose, and the wildly individual styles and colours used to convey them. one of those artists is Maira Kalman, famous for her whimsical visual diaries.

Maira’s illustrations are cute and colourful, wonderfully child-like, playful…and sophisticated all at once. warm and eccentric at the same time, Maira's faces are full of cock-eyed optimism, with the tiniest smidge of city-girl-snobbish...simply, scrumptiously, stupendously sublime!
