While we know plenty about Michelle Obama’s designer preferences, we know comparatively little about her beauty routine. Well, that’s likely about to change, as FLOTUS’ favorite designer Jason Wu has announced an imminent makeup line.
The collection, a partnership with cosmetics company Lancôme, will arrive just in time for the designer’s New York Fashion Week presentation next month.
Classic as Wu’s designs may be, don’t expect subtlety from the Lancôme line: “I’m not a ‘no-makeup makeup’ kind of a person. There’s always a look,” Wu tells Women’s Wear Daily. In fact, we got a preview of Wu’s makeup back in February, when the designer tested out dramatic violet eyeshadows for his runway show.
The collection, which will be sold at Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman, features 15 products, including eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, mascara and nail polish. “When you have great hair and makeup, it brings out the clothes even more,” Wu says. “This project feels very organic to me and is one of my favorite collaborations that I’ve ever done.”
Here’s hoping that our fashionable first lady enjoys the collection as much as she doesJason Wu’s dresses. Can you picture Michelle in saturated eyeshadow?
