“MAC has always been a supporter of both established and emerging talents in the music industry. We have a solid record of identifying and providing unique support to them at the beginning of their careers. With the Future Forward collaboration, we admired each artist’s distinctive sense of style and point of view on beauty,” said Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director James Gager. "MAC Tinashe is more of an eye girl so she knew right away she wanted to do an eye shadow palette. Halsey had this striking blue hair and really liked that blue-ish, grey lipstick tone, a bit 90’s. Lionbabe has a lioness persona with her voluminous golden mane. A metallic gold eyeliner fits her perfectly. Dej Loaf prefers a more minimal makeup look so the shimmery, versatile lipglass worked for her. Each of their personalities are fully expressed in their product."
