Love it: MAC X Julia Petit


I love a great MAC Cosmetics collaboration. Whether they’re teaming up with Brooke Shields, The Toledos or Rihanna, the brand knows how to not only let the individuality of their collaborator shine through, but to also still ensure that the integrity and performance of their products is absolutely perfect.
When I heard that Brazilian bombshell blogger and TV personality Julia Petit was next in line for a collab I was pretty excited, her style is pretty damn unique and her knowledge of beauty products vast. When some samples of the products in the collection arrived on my desk I was definitely not disappointed, and I have been wearing one of them every day – without fail – since! (It's the MAC Julia Petit Moving Sand Eyeshadow above, just FYI)
The collection was inspired by her hometown of Sao Paulo but Petit took her years of knowledge working online in the beauty industry to ensure that these products would benefit girls around the world. She started by focussing her attentions on a Brazilian flower named Victoria Regia (a little like a lotus) that grows successfully in very humid weather. Having that in mind, she said that she wanted to “make a collection that works well in the different climates and with the many ethnicities we have in Brazil. Also I wanted to create a set of products that could have their texture transformed – you can transform how much you want your skin to glow or shadows (contouring) when you’re doing your makeup with the collection’s illuminator or using one of the bright colour foundations”.
The collection is small but perfectly formed, and brings together fearless, exotic, and classically demure shades of colour that are all versatile, wearable and just plain gorgeous. Julia Petit’s approach on style and makeup artistry is reflected in a makeup collection popping with sun-kissed hues that reflect this Brazilian blogger’s personality.
