MAC Launches Exclusive Collection for Olive Skin Tones

MAC has teamed up with makeup artist Mickey Contractor to launch a limited edition line of cosmetics. Contractor, who has over 30 years’ experience as a makeup artist for many of Bollywood’s biggest stars, used his experience to create an exclusive collection of foundations and concealers for Indian and other olive-colored skin tones.

Contractor explained that he wanted to create a cosmetics collection to help women with skin pigmentation and discoloration problems:
“Outside of India, they’ll also work beautifully on Hispanic, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern skins, which can also have similar issues with pigmentation.”

The full range of products will include everything from lipsticks and blushes to eyeshadow pots and palettes. In addition to neutral shades, the collection will also incorporate lots of teal, green, fuchsia and plum-colored hues.

The MAC and Mickey Contractor Collection will launch on January 6th in stores and online. Prices in the collection range from $14.50 to $36.
