When the iconic meet the icons

We show you the top collaborations of the moment...


By Joely Walker

It’s the season of collaboration and we at EBT definitely want a piece of the action. Brands are taking inspiration from iconic individuals to give us distinctive and unique make-up collections.

Our top three picks have to be the super exciting Andy Warhol-inspired collection from Nars, the Shu Uemura /Karl Lagerfeld hook-up and Louise Gray’s new products for Topshop make-up.

See the product we are lusting over from each range - we predict sell outs...


Nars with Andy Warhol

Eye Shadow Palette in Self Portrait 2 £39.50 launching 1st November

‘I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty,’ Andy Warhol famously said. Nars took inspiration from the artist’s iconic look and mantra creating a bold and daring collection.

Known to many as the leader in pop and modern art Warhol’s use of colour has given him cult status as an idol. At today’s launch we managed to get a sneak peak of his original work in the exclusive Halcyon Gallery - no pictures allowed. This black and grey eye palette with a print of Warhol’s famous self portrait from 1967 was used by Nars make-up artist to create the distinctive 60’s eye.


We saw, we want, we need.
