MAC x Harris Reed Collab Is the Closest We’ll Get to a Harry Styles Makeup Line

“Everything and anything goes,” they say. “It’s just like my approach to fashion. One thing isn’t meant to be for a top. This fabric can be for boots, it can be for a hat. This eyeshadow is not for your eyes. This eyeshadow is for your collarbones; this eyeshadow is put up into your hairline and almost making a gold halo around your face.” 

Yes, the collection touts an amazing nine-shade palette, aka Eye Shadow x 9: Fighting for the Beauty of Fluidity ($35), alongside an bronzed-brown, Harris Reed-approved Eye Kohl ($20). If Reed were to do Harry Styles’ makeup with it, they say they’d sweep Spark Conversation (bright gold) and Set Them Ablaze (rusty orange) onto his lids for a David Bowie- and Bob Dylan-inspired look to give his performances an extra dose of shimmer. 

Personally, I’m looking forward to trying out the Cream Colour Base x 2: Embrace Your Duality palette ($33). Its pans of rose and foiled gold in creamy formulas exemplify the versatility of the line. I want to bathe my whole face in the metallic hue. And I won’t even have to pull out any fancy tools to make it happen. 

“What I love about makeup is the fact that I can’t change my clothes throughout the day, but I can change my makeup look with the touch of a finger,” Reed says. “It really allows me to almost have different looks, different personas within the day, all literally through something that fits in your pocket.”
