Mac Cosmetics collaborates with 7 influencers for new lipstick range 

DUBAI: Makeup giant Mac Cosmetics is collaborating with seven Arab influencers to each come up with their own lipstick shades set to hit the stores on Feb. 26. 

The “newest generation of Mac makers,” as referred to by the brand, are Jordanian makeup artist Hindash, Kuwaiti influencer Farah Al-Hady, Kuwaiti content creator Lujain Al-Dhafery, Lebanese model Nour Arida, Iraqi blogger Dima Al-Sheikhly, Lebanese YouTuber Maya Ahmad and the Instagram account Barbie Style.

Almost a year ago, the makeup and fashion icons flew to New York with Mac Cosmetics to customize their own shades. 

“It was such an amazing experience, and what’s even more exciting is that for the first time ever, the MAC Maker lipstick is GOLD! I cannot wait for you guys to see the colour and packaging that I worked on,” Al-Hady wrote to her 4.5 million Instagram followers. 

In recent years, MAC Cosmetics has partnered with a number of celebrities, influencers and artists from across the Arab world on limited-edition collections made for stock-piling.

The Egyptian star’s first partnership with the cosmetics brand features several makeup bag must-haves in limited-edition packaging adorned with images of the actress.

For the Yasmine Sabri x MAC Cosmetics makeup collaboration, Sabri worked closely with Saudi makeup artist Nora Bo Awadh to make the limited-edition range come to life.

Following on the success of the Lebanese star’s first collaboration with the brand, Cyrine Abdelnour also joined forces with MAC Cosmetics on a special collection that pushed the red lip to the forefront in 2019.  

In 2019, the Tunisian artist introduced his signature Arabic calligraphy style to the world of beauty with a new global collaboration with the makeup giant.

Three years ago, MAC Cosmetics developed a 10-piece lipstick range in collaboration with ten beauty gurus, bloggers and influencers from across the globe, including Kuwaiti social media sensation Fouz Al-Fahad.

In 2018, the Kuwaiti blogger designed a matte lipstick as part of a collaboration with MAC, dreaming up a warm brown-beige nude.

Gigi Hadid reveals first glimpse of baby bump

  • The 25-year-old model showed offer her growing bump on Instagram Live yesterday

Palestinian-American supermodel Gigi Hadid revealed on Wednesday to her 55 million followers on social media her baby bump for the first time during an Instagram live. 

“There’s my belly y’all,” she said, as she unbuttoned her top and turned sideways to show her growing belly. 

The 25-year-old model said she had been quiet about her pregnancy on social media as she felt it was “not the most important thing going on in the world.” 


“That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends,” she continued. 

“Obviously, a lot of people have lost lives due to (the) coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,” Hadid said. 

“And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

“I just am not rushed [to share],” she added, stating: “I just don’t want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and like worry about having to like look cute or post something.”


Rumors of Hadid’s pregnancy with her boyfriend Zayn Malik were dispelled in early May during a video call interview with Jimmy Fallon. During the interview, the model announced that she and Malik were very excited and happy about the baby. 

Yolanda Hadid, Hadid’s mother, had previously shared that the due date for her daughter’s baby girl was in September, E! News previously reported.

Hadid and the baby’s father, Zayn Malik, 27, have been spending the last few months during the coronavirus outbreak in isolation on a farm in rural Pennsylvania.
