It’s a smoky eye revolution. French editor, stylist and image maker Carine Roitfeld has partnered with MAC Cosmetics to bring a collection that is all about dark, defined eyes. And little star stickers too.

The former French Vogue editor is coming out with her own fashion magazine, CR Fashion Book, this Fall, so a collaboration with MAC emphasizing Carine’s signature smoky eye couldn’t be timed better.

The Carine Roitfeld Look: Sexy, sophisticated and very French, in the way that being very French is being badass and beautiful and comfortable in your own skin, whether it’s with a ton of eye makeup or a minimalist look with just a touch of lipgloss.

The Products: Our favourite products from the Carine Roitfeld line have to be the nail lacquer in deep, dark burgundy and the star stickers because they’re pretty ridiculous. Would you really wear star stickers on your face unless it was a bindi? Besides those, the Kohl Power Eye Pencil, Eye Brows in Brunette, and the Full Face Kit with four eye shadows are great for creating a smokin’ smoky eye, a la Carine.

The Carine Roitfeld for MAC Cosmetics line is available online here and at MAC Cosmetics stores on September 6, 2012, to coincide with Fashion’s Night Out events across the world.
