50 SHADES OF LOUISE GRAY
topshop’s first-ever makeup collaboration is anything but grey.
From Christopher Kane to Jonathan Saunders and Mary Katrantzou, Topshop’s roster of past collaborations reads like a cheat-sheet of our favorite designers. So when hearing the British tastemaker had enlisted Louise Gray (another fav!) to lend a hand to their latest collection we were definitely excited, but not exactly shocked. That is until we heard the eccentric Scottish designer would also be designing a makeup range.... and then, yes, we totally freaked out. “To be the first ever to do a makeup collaboration with them really appealed to me,” says Gray. “I am all about free expression. I always style things up my own way and it’s the same with my makeup – sometimes I do a multi-colored cheek and bright pink lip, and the next day it’s a blue eye and a giant red beauty spot. I wanted all the product to be really versatile so girls can use it for different things on different days and really create their own look.“Boasting sparkly-heavy nail lacquers, an electric blue eyeliner and the perfect peachy orange lipstick, the range may look a little too Rainbow Brite for everyday wear- but that’s only if you wear it all at once (which we might have to, sorry...) And in case you’re wondering how to achieve Gray’s aforementioned “giant red beauty spot,” we found the Eye Cream Duo in Wave Machine (here!) very beneficial. Buy the full collection here!
