It’s many girls’ teenage dream to have their favorite cosmetics brand want to collaborate with them. And for 17-year-old singer Lorde, that dream is about to become a reality: She’s collaborating with MAC on a makeup line set to debut this summer.

“I have loved MAC cosmetics since I was a little kid,” the Grammy winner says in a statement. “I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! MAC has a very clear aesthetic that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.”

Lorde has been working with MAC makeup artist Amber Dreadon for her current tour beauty looks (see a sketch below), and she also collaborated with Dreadon for this year’s Grammys (where she wore the line’s “Heroine” and “Cyber”) and Brit Awards. And we bet we can expect some super-cool dark lipstick shades in her upcoming collection, as well as some smoky shadows and hopefully some kind of new brow wand that will give us the singer’s amazing arches.

What do you think of Lorde’s gothic beauty look? Are you a fan? Share your thoughts below.

Gothic beauty. Is an oxymoron isn’t it!?

She’s 17 years old. This is the time of her life to try this

She needs a makeover. Her hair is a hot mess and she needs to tone down the makeup. I don’t care if she’s 17. That makeup is just too harsh .

BT on

Well, that makeup makes her look older than 17 – I don’t think it’s very attractive.

Reblogged this on Lita's Corner.

Yup, because throngs of people want to look and be just like her. NOT.

I don’t understand everyone’s fascination with this girl. Her look is bad…her singing is bad…what is she bringing to the table here?

She’s an original girl. Her music is different. I expect new ideas out of this one constantly.

Tina on

I like her music. Her voice is not that great. And her look is nothing to aspire to. This is just Mac cosmetics cashing in on a teenager who is at the top of the charts.

Dana on

She can use a haircut and eyebrow wax…
