about marc jacobs beauty:
as with his fashion, marc’s rule-breaking creativity is at the heart of his makeup vision. for marc, getting it right involves a little bit of wrong. he inspires you to push the boundaries and create your own style. so indulge in his exquisite textures, take liberties with his provocative shades, and play with his daring designs.
marc redefines beauty as imperfectly perfect. “i see beauty in many things and i am attracted to all sorts of imperfection, to style, to confidence or experimentation. it’s unexpected and surprises you.” inspiration stems from the spirit of “the girl” and her makeup ritual. “i think the idea of transforming into this person you want to be, is a lot of fun…it’s the idea of a young woman enjoying creating her look, getting ready for her night out, or her night after her night out.”
