MAC Cosmetics and Mickey Contractor Launch Collection For Middle Eastern Skintones

MAC's Director of Artistry for India designed a collection of yellow based foundations and concealers to match Indian skin tones. The collection features teal, bright fuchsia, plums,and neutrals that will complement the tones perfectly. It also includes lipstick, lipglasses, eyeshadow pots, and the popular fluidline gel eyeliner. The collection was inspired from the problems of discoloration and pigmentation around the mouth and eyes of Indian women. "Outside of India, they'll also work beautifully on Hispanic, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern skins, which can also have similar issues with pigmentation," says Contractor, who says that previous to the collection, he has had trouble with skin makeup appearing gray on yellow skin tone clients. The line carries Indian names like Viva(marriage), Jaan(my life) and Athma (soul). The new collection is now available nationwide at all MAC counters and retail starting at $14.50 to $36. Even with the over 100 shades MAC offer I am glad to see they have made more options for all brown skinned girls everywhere.
