Sharon and Kelly Osborne are the latest celebrities to collaborate with MAC. It’s been twelve years since MAC first asked the mother and daughter duo to work with them to create a collection and it finally came out in London on Tuesday.
The collection was inspired by their hair colour. Sharon is known for her short red hair while Kelly has gone for a beautiful, soft lilac shade. Kelly described the experience of choosing the colours:
“At the MAC Pro centre in New York they have these huge glass pots with every pigment which are so fun to play with. I realised there were certain textures I wanted for a satin finish, a glossy feel but not too glossy. It was really fun to experiment with.”
When asked why they refused the collaboration in 2002, Kelly explained: “I wasn’t in a good place, and my mum was sick. John Dempsey who was head at MAC kept coming back and was like ‘I’ll keep checking in.’ They came back five years later, and then they came back again, and about 18 months ago MAC said okay you’re ready. And me and mum said ‘yes, this is gonna be so fun.'”
Fun seems to be what this pair are all about. They revealed that they were so excited the night before the London press junket they had a sleep over. Even the photoshoot for the collection was “fun” they say. Talking about the experience, Kelly said:
“I’d never been in hair and make-up for that long in my life.” Sharon added: “We were literally in front of the camera, I don’t think for more than 10 minutes? So in like 10 minutes I was like ‘is that it?’ It was a fun day, to work with the best make-up artists, the best hair people that MAC is associated with, it was just so glamorous. I’m not used to doing work like that, so it was a treat, We had so much fun, it was my birthday so they got me a cake and champagne.”
