Karl Lagerfeld is branching away from couture and treading new waters with a fancy new make-up collaboration. The German fashion designer is teaming up with Australian beauty brand ModelCo to launch a collection based around the theme of ‘illuminated beauty’. (We’re hoping that means a hell of a lot of highlight, but if you can't wait to get your highlighter fix, take this quiz to find the perfect highlighter for you.)

The limited colour cosmetics collection will be launched in early 2018 and it’s an unusual move for a man renowned for his black and white colour palette. It isn't the first time that ModelCo’s teamed up with big names however - other celebrities like Hailey Baldwin and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have put their names to previous collabs.

Pier Paolo Righi, the CEO of lifestyle brand KARL LAGERFELD, said the aims of the collection was to ‘translate the KARL LAGERFELD vision and aesthetic into unique cosmetics’ and to combine their ‘signature DNA with innovative, cutting-edge beauty products for all women’.

Founder and CEO of ModelCo Shelley Sullivan also revealed, ‘This super fun, highly coveted and collectible collection will combine our high-quality formulas and innovative, technical packaging with KARL LAGERFELD’s unmistakable artistic aesthetic that’s sophisticated, modern and cool.’

While there’s been no word on what exactly we can expect from the new range, we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
