MAC Cosmetics Teams Up With Dita Von Teese On a Holiday Makeup Line

When the living epitome of the burlesque beauty teams up with the most renowned makeup label, we know that something big is about to happen. Mac Cosmetics has collaborated with Dita Von Teese, creating the perfect holiday makeup line, which is due to be released online and in stores next month. The Dita Von Teese x MAC Cosmetics makeup line is all about the celebrity’s signature red lips, featuring the perfect product you will love to receive or give to your friends this Christmas.

It is the first time ever that the 43-year-old actress, model, and show girl has worked on creating a signature lipstick with the brand, despite having already teamed up with MAC for its 2006 and 2007 Viva Glam campaigns (just in case you missed it, Viva Glam’s next celebrity is Ariana Grande!). Inspired by the launch of her new book Your Beauty Mark, which will be available for purchase in December 2015, the femme fatale reunited with the MAC family just in time to give birth to a pink-based matte red lipstick bearing her name.

In a recent interview with NYMag, Dita opened up about this latest effort of her, talking about her red-lipstick addiction and how her upcoming book influenced the process of creating a lipstick of her own: “I’m quite close to all of my friends from M.A.C, so we thought it would be of interest to fans of M.A.C to create a lipstick in honor of my new book, Your Beauty Mark. We knew it would be red for sure since it’s a signature for me. For my entire adult life, I can’t really remember a time when I left the house without red lipstick on. They knew what some of my favorite M.A.C colors were, including colors that had been discontinued, and I told them my preferences and they sent me a selection. It wasn’t very long — we narrowed it down pretty quickly to three and I wore all of them for several days. Gregory Arlt, who is one of the M.A.C senior makeup artists and one of my closest friends, weighed in. I’ll still be wearing 47 other M.A.C reds, but this is the one that speaks for the book.”

Creative director of MAC Cosmetics, James Gager shared the company’s excitement: “Dita epitomizes femininity, beauty and sexuality. She has been a friend of our brand for many years. She is the perfect combination of glamour and femme fatale.”

Such collaboration is extremely interesting for multiple reasons. Even though Dita did already create a limited-edition makeup collection with the German-based Artdeco in 2012, this Dita Von Teese x MAC lipstick line is a one-of-a-kind collaboration. The first reason is the unconventional vintage turn that Dita will add to the label. Then, it is also appealing to watch a well-known artist, who has gained a reputation for doing it herself (for example she dyes her hair at home and does her own makeup for important events), create and then share such an intimate part of her artistic work with such an international company.

Dita Von Teese is in not only a talented model and artistic performer, but also a unique and unconventional beauty proving that every kind of beauty should and deserves to be celebrated: “MAC Cosmetics celebrates individuality and supports people who dare to be different. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to create my signature red lipstick. My MAC Von Teese shade evokes glamour and confidence.”
