It’s a new month. And there are a lot of new things to try. Take, for instance, M.A.C. Cosmetics’ Fall Colour collection,Gee Beauty’s new Bal Harbour digs, stay-put workout wear from Tees by Tina and a class you’ve never tried before at IronFlower.
BEAUTY:Cindy Sherman, for those who don’t know, is an artist known for her dramatic transformations. Props, prosthetics, wigs — it’s all in her bag of tricks. Inspired by this master of disguises, M.A.C. created its M.A.C. Fall Colour line. Taking a page from Sherman, M.A.C. created three characters as diverse as the artist, who posed for the promo pics, herself. The colors used for all three characters are bold, like its purple Plum Bright Lipstick ($14.50), its metallic-hued Blue Storm Pigment ($20) and its yellow, green Three Ring Yellow Eyeshadow ($15). We’re particularly digging the Solar Riche Bronzing Powder’s ($23) orange-brown hue and the pale mauve Good Times Lipglass ($14.50). With a collection this lively, you definitely won’t be a shrinking violet this fall. GET IT:107 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach; 305.538.1088. www.maccosmetics.com.
