In just 10 more days, on November 11, the blockbuster hit Black Panther is returning to the silver screen with its highly anticipated sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. To celebrate the upcoming feature film, MAC Cosmetics and Marvel have teamed up to create a limited-edition Wakandan-inspired makeup collection. You can now create the film characters’ looks at home with lipsticks, eyeshadows, eyeliner and more.
We talked with Joel Harlow, Makeup Department Head for Marvel Studios’ Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to learn about this legendary collaboration.
“The products that made the collection were ultimately products used more than anything else throughout the film,” explained Harlow. “When we were filming, I was feeding key themes and looks to M∙A∙C so they could build a collection that was truly inspired and complementary to the vibrant colors from set.”
The MAC x Marvel Collection features 18 makeup products in special-edition Black Panther-inspired packaging, including a Wakanda-themed makeup bag. Since the cosmetics are inspired by the main characters of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the collab’s color palette is rich in jewel tones and shimmering metallics that are meant to look stunning on all skin tones.
With so many great options in the line, it’s hard to know where to start, but Harlow gave his expert advice. “If I had to pick just one product, it would be the x8 eyeshadow palette because of the bold, vibrant colors we included—ultimately, the story is an uplifting one and I feel the palette directly speaks to that.”
