MAC Cosmetics Launches Makeup Collection for Indian, Middle Eastern and Mix Race Tones

December 31, 2010

If you have an olive-based skin tone, you’re going to flip for MAC Cosmetic’s latest color launch.

Designed by Mickey Contractor — the artist behind three decade’s worth of glamorous Bollywood movie stars — the color story will debut yellow-based foundations and concealers finely tuned to match the Indian skin tones that Contractor is so familiar with sculpting.

The collection also includes a brilliant palette of bright fuchsias, teals, plums and neutrals to perfectly complement tan tones, and will launch by way of lipsticks, Lipglasses, eye shadow pots and palettes, as well as the brand’s popular Fluidline gel eyeliner.

“The inspiration for this collection really came from what I felt Indian women needed. Pigmentation and discoloration problems around the mouth and under the eyes is something that most people in India have a problem with, so creating the concealers was really important to me,” says Contractor, who is also MAC’s director of makeup artistry for India.

“Outside of India, they’ll also work beautifully on Hispanic, Mediterranean, Mixed Race and Middle Eastern skins, which can also have similar issues with pigmentation,” adds Contractor, who says that previous to this collection, he has had trouble with skin makeups appearing gray on yellow-toned clients.
