This year is already shaping up to be a big one for singer Kiesza. Fresh off the release of her new album’s debut single, “Dearly Beloved,” she’s announced a new makeup collection to be released next month. Kiesza’s MAC Cosmetics Collection comes on the heels of Mariah Carey’s collection with the brand. MAC has also collaborated with other celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Ariana Grande. Kiesza’s collection is set to be released February 2, both online and in stores.
Kiesza Debuts MAC Collection
Her capsule collection with MAC Cosmetics will include two lip products, an eyeliner, and a brow pencil. The Liquidlast Liner in Point Back and Big Brow Pencil in Cork are both a part of MAC’s permanent line. However, the two lip shades she created are exclusive to her collection and are only available for a limited time. The singer is known for rocking a bold red lip, but she decided to change things up when curating this collection. She opted for two nude lip shades—Billboard describes “Thunder Kiss” as deep chocolate pigmented gloss, while “Dearly Beloved” is a brown matte lipstick.
When Billboard asked Kiesza about her inspiration for the shades and products she chose for her collection, she said, “If I’m going to wear something every day I don’t want to change my face; I want to enhance my personality.” Ditching her signature red lip, her nude understated choices definitely make more sense to us!
Kiesza says that her “Dearly Beloved” lipstick shade is perfect for achieving a subtle makeup look. For a more dramatic look, she said that she’d go in with “Thunder Kiss,” thicken up her eyeliner, and make her brows a little bolder.
The shade of eyebrow pencil that the singer-songwriter chose to include in this collection is a little darker than one would assume, given her fair skin tone. However, Kiesza is a fan of bold brows and isn’t afraid to thicken them up.
“I love eyebrows and feel they frame your face giving your eyes a whole new look. When I thicken mine, my eyes look more intense which helps bring the whole look together.”
The artist is clearly enthusiastic about releasing her collection with MAC and excitedly shared the news with her followers on Tuesday. She shared a snap from her photoshoot with the brand sporting a sultry look. She wore a dark brown lip color with natural eyes and brows. Her brownish red hair was in her natural curls, and she accessorized with a black netted headpiece. Kiesza’s Instagram post was captioned, “Thrilled to announce the big news! My @maccosmetics collection is coming soon ❤️❤️ shop online + in select stores on 2/9 #MACKiesza.”
MAC Cosmetics shared in the excitement, posting the same photo just one day before. Their caption praised the talented singer: “Canadian pop powerhouse @Kiesza has dazzled countless dance floors. Now, the singer-songwriter introduces her newest instant hit: a collaboration with M·A·C! Coming soon to select markets!”
