CARLSON, presented by Holden Astra, is an ode to the brand's 20 years in fashion. The collection made of one-off, handcrafted, unique designs created from archived fabric collections, saw 90's sportswear juxtaposed with demi couture with hints of vintage western, chinoiserie and 60's evening wear.

The team at MAC created makeup looks inspired by the luxurious, high sheen silk fabric used in the collection. In the words of the makeup team "the eyes are dusted with glitter while the complexion is enhanced with highlights and softly flushed cheeks", using MAC products including Perky Prolongwear Paintpot,Creme Blush Something Special, Pearl Cream Colour Base and Reflects Glitter in Gold and Pearl.
