Inspired by the understated retro chic of the '50s, M.A.C's new It's a Strike! collection has a perfect selection of of-the-moment shades to bring you back in time

Love the look of a bright, fuchsia mouth and a flick of liner, reminiscent of the fun-loving gals of the 1950s? Then you'll adore the colours and offerings of M.A.C's fall collection. This was inspired by the wholesome recreational sport of bowling: think lace-up shoes, silk bomber jackets and even a high ponytail. The collection features all the products you need to nail this look — including seven shades of red and pink-toned lipstick, three of which are in the brand's popular retro matte finish, and three shades of the fluidline pen for a clean yet sophisticated flick. Other highlights include brushes, six eyeshadows and two shades of Casual Colour, a creme formula for the cheeks and lips.

The pièce de résistance of the collection? A Pearl Matte face powder in Trophy White that comes with cute embossed ball and bowling pins that is bound to have palette collectors in a frenzy. To complete the look, don't forget a selection of three nail polishes with adorable, punny names. Whether you go for Rack 'Em Up — a deep khaki, 5 Pin — a wine cream lacquer — or Baby Split — a sheer lime — these covetable varnishes will add the perfect ten to your score.
