MAC is launching 2 concealer palettes for deep skin tones

Alexandra Hourigan 22 March 2018 NEWS

Move over because MAC Cosmetics is raising the bar for makeup inclusivity!

Okay, I've said it once and I'll say it again. Nobody has got any time for makeup brands that don't promote inclusivity. Fenty Beauty's 40 shade range and Huda Beauty's 30 shade foundation range meant that other beauty brands really needed to meet the new standard.

Now MAC Cosmetics is getting in on the fun and are launching two palettes designed exclusively for those with deeper skin tones. The two palettes both consist of colour correcting concealers for a range of darker skin tones.

Colour correcting is already tricky in itself, so pair that with trying to find the right shade and things get even harder. Therefore MAC dropped these two "genius" palettes that not only consider deeper skin tones but the undertones too, because, let's face it, everyone is just different!

The palettes were leaked by MAC Global Senior Artist Dominic Skinner who states that "These were perfectly created to lift, brighten, & smooth out the deepest of complexions". They were used during fashion month on a range of models so you know this is the good stuff.

These palettes have a multitude of uses due to the range of shades. They consist of orange and red for dark circles, tan brown for uneven texture, lighter brown shades for concealing and even a navy blue for concealing hyper-pigmentation.

Where to buy the MAC concealer palettes?

Right now, the collection does not have a specified launch date, but we wouldn't be surprised if the range drops in-stores soon – not to mention on the Australian MAC Cosmetics site as well. In the meantime, you can purchase MAC Cosmetics from MECCA, David Jones, Myer and of course, the standalone MAC Cosmetics stores.
