Editorial Reviews

Review

“There is almost no text in this oversized, 250-page hardcover, but the photos speak volumes. Models in Candycolored eyeshadows and lipsticks showcase the boundary-pushing aesthetic that has been MAC's signature since its 1987 launch. While the makeup looks in this book may be too bold for you to copy completely, they just may inspire you to be a little bit more fearless when you're getting ready for your next Saturday night out. If you're looking for a gift for a beauty addict, this is it - you know she has enough makeup.” –Metro NY

“…an ode to the paring of skin with makeup and a feast of inspirational portrait ideas. The book’s 200 chroma-driven images comprise a lustrous swipe file of unconventional, ingenious makeup treatments—some over the top, some surprisingly elegant—each with a different iteration of Aldridge’s well-developed sense of fantasy.” -Rangefinder

“Forget about tutorials and trends -- James Gager, MAC's Senior VP and Group Creative Director, isn't interested in showing ready-to-wear, traditional makeup looks. He's more interested in storytelling. And with the help of high-fashion photographer Miles Aldridge, Gager has done just that with Miles of MAC, a compilation of epic poetry, imaginary characters, and voyeuristic vignettes, all told through striking images that showcase the makeup giant's artistic prowess. Since its start in 1984, MAC, has intrigued and inspired countless artists, all of who come together to discuss the impact that the company has had on their lives and work in this striking tome. Filled with pages of vibrantly styled images, Gager and Aldridge's book perfectly captures the innovative, risk-taking spirit that has carried the brand through the past 30 years.” –Nylon
 
“The Wildest Vintage MAC Ads of All Time. In the beauty world, you aren't a Mac or a PC. You're just a MAC, one of the biggest beauty powerhouses with a reputation for celebrating individuality and big, often highly anticipated, collaborations. A new book titled Miles of MAC, showcases both of these things, with pages of vintage ads shot by photographer Miles Aldridge in collaboration with James Gager, the senior VP and creative director for MAC. The results are highly cinematic and graphic…this isn't your typical makeup book.” –New York Magazine

Miles of MAC explores the power of makeup artistry. Miles of Mac is an inspirational, high-fashion book that celebrates the drama of the makeup artistry of MAC with stunning photography by the iconic fashion photographer Miles Aldridge. With striking images of some of the best and most inspiring MAC looks to date, this stunning book celebrates MAC with over 200 color photographs and gives readers the opportunity to delve into the vivid and surreal world that makes MAC one of the most highly sought-after cosmetics brands in the world.” –Life + Times

As a fashion photographer and collaborator with many makeup artists i can say this is SUCH a phenomenal book. Miles is my favorite photographer, and his last book " I Only Want You to Love Me" is a prized possession in my studio, so i am highly biased, but this is just an amazing collection of images and all geared toward the makeup artists. I bought one on pre-order and then after receiving it bought another right away for a makeup artist who was having a birthday. Perfect gift for any fashionista, makeup artist, model, photographer or fan of art and talent on their coffee table.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this book! I am a makeup artist, and have been in love with MAC since I was 16 years old and started my interest in cosmetics. The book is giant, has gorgeous colored pages, and for the quality, should be more expensive! I was shocked to receive it and realize I only paid $30 for it! It's printed in Italy, so you know it's super high quality print. I am going to put this in my studio for everyone to enjoy. It has a clear protective cover on it, so it's easy to wipe down if needed. I can't say enough about this book. If you know anyone, or if you yourself are into makeup, this is the perfect purchase! You won't regret it =)

This would have been the prefect coffee table had it only had points and facts on Mac Cosmetic's history. It was just a book filled with only collection posters, BORING!

Beautiful, heavy, well-made book. Love all of the art (yes, makeup is art) and the books looks great displayed with the rest of my collection of coffee table books.

Beautiful images! Would have loved some more 'behind the scenes' type details of some of the shots. Still a great book!
