The collaboration has three-pieces including a nine shade eyeshadow palette, a lipstick, as well as a bronzer all inspired by Jasmine.
Disney announced this MAC collaboration after the release of the full length trailer for the Aladdin live-action film to release May 24.
MAC took to Instagram to announce the good news.
They wrote, ''Your wish, our command. Manifest your magic with The Disney Aladdin Collection by MAC. Launching this May, this wish-fulfilling collaboration highlights the self-determination and confidence of Princess Jasmine in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, Aladdin – in theatres May 24.”
Fans were delighted and took to the comments to say so.
One said, ''I am so ready to buy the lipstick!!''
While another wrote, ''Best ever colab I could ever imagine.''
The collaboration is centered around Jasmine's powerful character as a woman – self-determined, strong and confident.
The eyeshadows don't have any names, but the colours are stunning and the nine shades includes mattes, shimmers and jewel tones in mauve purple, red and pink blush tones, as well as gold shimmers.
Aer Lingus has finally copped on to the fact that it's 2019 and ditched some outdated rules.
The airline has announced that their cabin crew are no longer required to wear make-up at work.
Yes, the ''trolly dolly'' standards that they're known for (and that belong in the 1950s) have been banished.
I'm sure the women of Ireland welcome @AerLingus to the 20th Century. Female flight attendants no longer have a stricter, more expensive and inconvenient dress code than their male colleagues. Now for the sports sponsorship to be spent on women 50/50(that'll be another century)
Rihanna has now taken legal action against her father, Ronald Fenty, for using her trademark Fenty brand in a "fraudulent effort to solicit millions of dollars" without her permission.
Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, has filed a lawsuit against her dad after he set up the company Fenty Entertainment and apparently acted as her agent.
She claims Ronald and a man named Moses Perkins have been "soliciting business by falsely acting as her agent".
According to legal documents, the duo are allegedly seeking "to profit from her fame" and "although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf."
The ANTI singer and beauty mogul also claims they have falsely booked her for a $15 million Latin American tour, two concerts at Staples Centre in LA and a Las Vegas show, worth $400,000.
The documents also allege that her father tried unsuccessfully to file trademark for Fenty multiple times to launch a "resort hotel services" with the hope of "exploiting Rihanna’s name and brand". Yikes.
The 30-year-old star insists that she tried to settle the issues outside of court but that he ignored her cease and desist mail. She's now asking a judge to place an injunction on Ronald.
Fenty has been trademarked by Bad Gal Riri for all business ventures, such as her cosmetics and lingerie collections.
The Umbrella songstress has a turbulent relationship with her biological father; she has maintained that he physically abused her mother and has been addicted to crack cocaine in the past.
Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.
Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.
Dress to Impress
You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.
For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.
A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.
If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.
It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!
We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!
The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.
Prom night is not the time to work this out.
If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.
Testing 1, 2, 3
One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.
Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.
The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.
Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.
It takes skill to turn every controversy and scandal into exploitation, and then rake in the cash as a result. Give her credit where it’s due.
According to Forbes, Mother Jenner got “paid an estimated $17 million by her daughter in the past year” due to the giant which is Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie named one of her eyeshadow shades 10% as a nod to the slice which Kris gains from her daughter’s business, which is pure gas.
We’ve been Keeping Up With The Kardashians since 2007, and E! network agreed to an $80 million deal in 2015 and another deal in 2017 for America’s first reality TV family.
The hilarious momager went on The Ellen Show, and claims that;
“Everybody gets paid pretty much equally, ’cause we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade…Everybody’s happy.”
Kris takes home a cool $15 million from the show, so we think she’s doing pretty damn well.
Slay, bish, you’re a gifted woman.
Kim Kardashian alone is worth $350 million and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million, which means that Kris owns at least $125 million. We’re shook. If you have ever wondered about the net worth of celebrities there is tonnes of information here that will surprise you. Who’d have thought that Gigi Hadid was worth that much?
Influencers are on the rise at the moment, with a booming make-up and cosmetics industry and the ever-expanding social media platforms, branding is more lucrative than ever.
Make-up guru and general sass queen Jeffree Star has always vowed to be as honest with his fans as possible, even when it comes to his wealth.
It's no secret that he is ABSURDLY wealthy; as well as his YouTube earnings and side projects, he predominantly generates income from his giant line of cosmetics.
Remember how I was going to film a video exposing makeup brand deals? The brand I was working with just bitched out and cancelled because they are worried that the price they pay me, will upset their other clients… they don't want the $ exposed anymore.
He has now promised to expose any brand who try to meddle with him and his CASH DOLLA in any way that he can, and boy does he have power.
David Dobrik was told by the make-up star that he earns $150 million PER YEAR. *Pause to allow shook people to gather themselves before continuing*
In his recent tweets, Star mentions how he was supposed to create a project which exposed make-up brand deals, but the brand he was working with pulled out in order to keep other clients happy.
He has now revealed how much they were offering to pay him for a SINGLE product; a jaw-dropping $165,000. Dear God.
This video idea is important and I find it funny how brands are afraid to expose the $$$ they pay influencers but it's advertising. Just like Pepsi paying to be in a movie.. But makeup companies want it to be a secret. WHY? This brand offered me $165,000 to use their new product.
The palette features 18 stunning 'toppings' to choose from, and colours to match. The names range from earthy emerald shades of 'Basil' to the shimmery gold of 'Pineapple', and even metallic purple 'Red Onions'.
This woman is a genius. The product has also been JEFFREE STAR APPROVED, which is no easy feat.
Millennials don't exactly get an easy time; most people hate us or just dismiss us as snowflakes who only have knowledge about wi-fi and avocado toast.
While we generally have more of a penchant for the internet seeing as we GREW UP WITH IT… this doesn't mean we're as lazy and vain as everyone says we are.
For example, we only have three selfie sticks and check our reflections between the hours of 9am and 11pm everyday, so what's the big deal about?
We've all heard the lectures from our elderly relatives about how we drain the economy and refuse to get jobs, but people love to focus on the negatives rather than the positives.
Getting a millennial a Christmas gift can be a challenge, seeing as the chances of them being vegan, supporting paraben-free and cruelty-free produce and generally hipster and full of notions are sky high.
They'll also most likely blog the entire gift opening session, and post every aspect of it to social media, so it's gotta be impressive.
We've made a gift guide especially to help you out this festive season, y'all are welcome.

Christmas is just around the corner and I am VERY excited about it.
As the eldest sister I feel like there's more pressure on me to buy amazing gifts for my sisters. Finding the perfect gift can be a complete and utter nightmare, but I realised there are so many essential things to buy your sisters; basically everything they steal on you.
My sisters are forever 'borrowing' everything and anything on me, from jeans to deodorant and from my curler to perfume. And tbh I'm fed up with it.
So how do we solve this problem?
Buy them the thing they're ALWAYS robbing on you. This gift guide is here to help my fellow struggling sisters who have had enough of their siblings and the constant case of missing belongings.
