There’s a reason we entered Marc Jacobs Beauty into the Latest in Beauty Haul of Fame. Not only is the brand unanimously adored by every member of our team, but Marc’s signature rule-breaking creativity drives his irresistible makeup vision, and it’s one we’re totally onboard with. For Marc, beauty runs counter to the expected. Unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, he embraces seeming opposites to create something complete new, inspiring beauty enthusiasts worldwide to push boundaries and create their own personal style.

We wanted to bring you a piece of his eponymous collection, allowing you to experience the thrill in the beauty of the unexpected. For February’s Haul of Fame Most Wanted product, we present to you Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, the core centrepiece to any Marc Jacobs beauty look. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got the scoop on the brand’s latest launch; The Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Primer – the go-to lash primer for all-out impact. Lashes are left lengthened, and you won’t experience a grey tinge when following with mascara, like some traditional lash primers – result! As you can see from the before and after (left eye with primer and mascara, and right without primer) it’s a product that definitely wows. Keep reading to discover how you can be one of the first to get your hands on one and uncover the three easy eye looks we’ve created…

MJbefore-after

In celebration of Marc Jacobs Beauty’s debut on Latest in Beauty, we headed to the Marc Jacobs Beauty counter in London’s Harvey Nichols to bring you even more inspiration for your looks. We’ve created three eye looks, each encompassing the Haul of Fame Most Wanted Velvet Noir Mascara. Additionally, each look has been centred around the brand’s Spring 19 collection, which launches on-counter today (19 February) at Harvey Nichols stores and online at harveynichols.com.
