Love it: the M.A.C X Brant Brothers collection



I don’t think gender-fluid/anyone can wear it makeup has ever looked as good as M.A.C Cosmetics's killer new product line created in collaboration with the fabulous Brant Brothers, Peter and Harry. The pair of pretty much flawless on the regular NYC socialites – and sons of the legendary supermodel, Stephanie Seymour - first teamed up with the beauty giant last year for an initial line of products meant to be worn by anyone, gender identity be damned. Now that line has expanded, and I for one have fallen in love with more than a few of the offerings hitting counters in New Zealand on August 8.
In an interview with M.A.C about their debut collection, the boys revealed they first began playing with make-up when they were teenagers, having a damn good time rifling through their famous mother's cosmetics case whenever they got the chance. “We would always help her get ready and watch her make herself up so beautifully,” they said, adding: “it was something fun we did together, and some of our favourite memories as kids were in her dressing room.” The boys say they want their make-up line to give people – all people - confidence in their appearances, with Harry adding: “the point of the whole collection is that it’s for you. It’s not about doing it for anyone else, to please anyone else, it’s just because you like the way it alters your appearance. It's hot." 
New additions to the unisex makeup selection this year include lip stains, brow gels, neutral eye shadows and more. And in a key difference between the brothers' line and many other makeup brands, the collection’s packaging features the Brant Brothers’ signatures in modern matte black on glossy black background for a totally gender-neutral vibe. "Most makeup is packaged for women, which is why men feel embarrassed about owning it," Peter told Allure about the line's black matte cases. "There's no difference between makeup for men or women—it's all packaging."
