Ariana Grande is known for many things–her killer singing voice, and her never-changing hairstyle. But, interestingly enough, aside from her eponymous marshmallow fragrance, the chart-topping artist has never had a beauty contract–until now. Following in Miley Cyrus’ loud footsteps, Ariana has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to create her own Viva Glam collection–with all proceeds of products going to help people affected by HIV/AIDS.
After a lot of hype and teasing, Ariana revealed herself on MAC’s Periscope to show off her beauty products, which included a duo of a dark plum lipstick and a shimmering pink lip glass. Ariana noted that the dark plum lipstick is there to “represent the bad girl in you” and the light pink lip gloss is meant to “represent the good girl in you because I think you should play up both sides.”
The collection will be available in January, and Ariana of course reminded us that it’s guilt-free shopping, because it’s for a good cause. Watch her announce it live in the Periscope stream below.
