This season Smashbox Cosmetics is teaming up with Cali-based, abstract artist Meryl Pataky to make the holiday even brighter than you had imagined. The limited-time, Light It Up Holiday Collection features bestselling makeup kits for face, eyes and lips that are housed inside imaginatively designed – lit-from-within – neon boxes that are a studio work-of-art. San Francisco-based artist Meryl Pataky, well-known for her creative work in silver, cooper, iron and neon, designed the limited-edition packaging exclusively for Smashbox.
“Light affects how we feel, how we look and how we see the world, when I plug in one of my pieces of art, it’s like magic!” says Pataky.
The same can be said of these gleaming, one-of-a-kind neon Light It Up kits, which are sure to wow both the makeup and art lovers on any holiday gift list.
