M.A.C has been pretty busy with a string of collaborations with designers and singers from Zac Posen to Ariana Grande. Ellie Goulding is the latest singer to get her own makeup collaboration. The blonde beauty's collection is based on the dichotomy between light and dark that's found in her music, and the collection has products that give you Goulding's signature looks — effortless and natural by day and va-va-voom by night. Here are five of our picks that go beyond being mere collector's items to actually being useful additions to your makeup kit.

1. Eye and Cheek Compact in Halcyon Nights, $90
All the colours you need for a subtle, disco glow.
