(Preview) Makeup Transformers: Cindy Sherman For MAC Collection

One of the most famous artists of the century has now joined forces with M.A.C. Cindy Sherman, a world-renowned photographer and filmmaker has been known for her powers of self transformation using wigs, makeup and prosthetics.

Through her collaboration with M.A.C., Sherman is launching three different “faces” for the collection using three palettes of possibilities.

In the first, the wig achieves such a powerful transformation and the lips are all nice and glossy. Stratospheric lashes complete the look.
