Women of color, celebrate! M·A·C has created a makeup collection in honor of one of Bollywood’s best makeup artists, available NOW!
The worldwide appeal of Bollywood movies is ever growing, with stars making a worldwide impact in the world of film and especially beauty. One of the greatest makeup artists from that industry, Mickey Contractor, is being honored with a special makeup collection from M·A·C Cosmetics especially for ethnic women and it’s available starting TODAY! Read on, beauty fans!
Mickey’s visionary concept of taking Bollywood movie beauty away from heavy pancake makeup to more glowin, natural looks gained him worldwide recognition and an adoring fan following. Stars across Bollywood like Aishwarya Rai, Kajol and Preity Zinta started sending other makeup artists to Mickey to learn his fantastic techniques. Now, the makeup genius (and M·A·C’s Director of Makeup Artistry for India) has been paid the ultimate honor: a collection created as a tribute to his incredible talents with women of color.
Mickey’s philosophy? “For me, beauty is about a natural-looking woman who wears makeup but wears it so cleverly that it doesn’t actually show.” That doesn’t mean it’s boring. “She’s also somebody who carries herself with a lot of confidence. She’s not jsut someone who’s pretty; she also has a lot of character.” The collection is split into two parts to reflect his philosophy: “Face” and “Color.”
The collection is specially calibrated for Middle Eastern and Indian skin but women of color can also benefit from the rich tones; the makeup looks amazing on women with olive and golden complexions. Get to your local M·A·C store, counter or online immediately because this gorgeous makeup collection is bound to sell out!
Stay beautiful, BFFs!
