MAC's Haute Dogs Collection Is Barking Up The Right Tree

You can always rely on MAC Cosmetics to come across with something truly innovative and one thing's for sure, they always get us talking. Haute Dogs is the latest collection from the beauty powerhouse and yes, it's inspired by (Wo)man's best friend but don't let that put you off; every single piece here is drool-worthy (pun totally intended). Dogs can be just as glamorous as humans (think Crufts' crimp-haired poodles and what have you) and what with dedicated canine festivals happening on this very Emerald Isle, they couldn't be more on trend.

As MAC themselves describe, here they're barking up the right tree in a well-groomed collection of new canine-inspired hues, featuring luscious buttery fur tones, gold-spun sculpting powders and regal berries for lips. You'll be 'lapping up the accolades as best in show' in no time. Well played MAC, well played.

Odd as the collection may be named, what you're getting here is very bridal appropriate, at least colour wise, and, of course, perfect to take you from day to night on any occasion.
