Presenting the Daphne Guinness for MAC Collection

The Daphne Guinness for MAC collection doesn't debut until December 26th, but here are some product images to oogle in the meantime. MAC did a Q&A with Guinness, who explained that instead of using makeup when she was younger, she used acrylic paint:

Well to be honest, there wasn’t much makeup around when I was growing up! I never really thought of it. But I was always painting. Let me see...Did I paint myself? I tried to make myself look Japanese...I had a Japanese nanny, and I love the Japanese aesthetic, so I remember trying to achieve that look. But instead of makeup I would use watercolours or acrylics or anything I could get my hands on. Sometimes I would paint pictures on my face, on my eyelids or whatnot.Click through to see the collection.
