Meet M.A.C’s latest Viva Glam spokesperson – FYI, her range is for charity, so it’s totally justified spending.
Ariana’s mad about M.A.C.
Ariana’s known for sporting one look and one look only (signature half-up pony with an ultra glam cat-eye flick, anyone?), which makes her Viva Glam collab with M.A.C a seriously bold move. While previous Viva Glam celebs have opted for matching shades, Ariana’s surprising combo makes sure everyone is catered to.
Why is it important to be vocal about your work with the M.A.C AIDS Fund?
Not enough people are talking about it. M.A.C helps people recognise their differences, and that it’s okay to speak out about these kinds of things. M.A.C and I have the same values – we both want equality in this world. It’s guiltfree shopping; buy a lipstick, save a life.
What was it like working with M.A.C?
It was a dream come true! I got to pitch them my ideas for colours and they
loved it. I am proud to be part of the M.A.C family. I’m in such a great company. I want people to remember how I made them feel. That they made a donation and it went a long way.
What was your first encounter with M.A.C Cosmetics like?
When I was eight years old, I was playing Annie. My mom took me to the M.A.C counter to start my make-up kit. She bought me a grey eyeshadow to use as ash on my face.
What’s your usual go-to beauty look?
A brown shimmery smokey eye paired with nude lip gloss – I do these with or without a cat-eye. Lately I’m trying more of a smokey eye.
What makes you feel the most empowered?
I look up to the women in my life, especially my mum and Nonna. They taught me that I can do anything, and they keep me grounded.
