Teyana Taylor announced via Instagram that she will be launching her first makeup collection in collaboration with cosmetics giant MAC Cosmetics last week.
The brand is renowned for collaborating with some of the most world renowned faces across many industries including including the late Queen of Tejano music, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, (who currently holds the title for the best-selling collection of all time).Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Sharon and Kelly Osbourne come after her. Raquel Welch, Taraji P. Henson, Brooke Shields, Ru Paul and Lorde have all had collaboration with the brand too.
This has been a year in the making, the promo images took us back to the ’90s with this Grace Jones styling wearing a vintage Versace baroque-print look re-imagined by John Allen, and styled by Kollin Carter.
The limited-edition collection MAC x Teyana Taylor is inspired by the dynamic artist’s love for the 90s.
“I was inspired by the 90s and the heart & soul of Harlem and wanted to show that through the shades and packaging,” the singer said
“I’m very excited to be partnering with a company like MAC who I’ve watched collaborate with strong women of colour over the years.”
Like many of us, Taylor’s first introductions to MAC was when she was a little girl beginning to experiment with makeup. “I’ve been a fan of MAC ever since I was 15 years old and started experimenting with makeup, it was the first brand that made me like makeup. I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the MAC team but also hoping to inspire other young women that anything and everything is possible.
Teyana posted the imagery on social media with a long caption detailing her excitement to be partnering with the brand, which follows the news that the entertainer is expecting her second child with NBA baller Iman Shumpert.
The campaign was photographed by Daniel Sannwald, who has also photographed the likes of Travis Scott, Prada campaigns, and Kylie Jenner.
The collection will launch internationally in July 2020 and be available online and via MAC Cosmetic stores.
