Optical Illusions are having (another) fashion moment. Stella McCartney’s ‘Illusion’ dress has been a huge hit with celebrities and spawned a hundred high street copy-cat designs, that enhance women’s curves in the most flattering way.

Reminds us of...
Alexander McQueen has previously played with optical illusion dresses back in 2009, producing the hypnotic moiré-print dress. Herve Leger also went optical trickery crazy at around the same time with a super flattering banded body-con dress (of course).
I LOVE this McQueen dress on Victoria Beckham - genius.

Now it seems that beauty is getting in on the Op-Art action. This Optical Bronzer by Mac includes blush too and promises a super flattering shade for most skin tones…and it’s pretty! We’re keen to give it a go for £34.95, especially as it reminds us of super Brit artist Bridget Riley’s work which is a tad pricier.
Was Bridget Riley Mac's inspiration?
I always feel guilty about using such beautiful cosmetics!
If Mac could re-create this Riley for us as another blush that would be great, thanks x
Do you want to see more of this Op Art trend in beauty and on the catwalk or is it just us?
