Its Ellie Goulding -- not Caitlyn Jenner -- for MAC Cosmetics. The British singer has been hired by the world-famous brand to be its spokesmodel and collaborator. The 28-year-old will represent the company's upcoming MAC x Ellie Goulding collection.
MAC first announced the news on Instagram, captioning Goulding's picture, "Rise up, sing out and shine! Our upcoming collaboration with pop's most radiant singer-songwriter, @elliegoulding makes its debut later this year! #MACEllieGoulding.” The blond beauty later shared the news with her more than 5 million Instagram followers.
"Oi oi SO excited to finally share what I've been working with @MACcosmetics!!! #MACEllieGoulding drops in Dec/Jan!," the 28-year-old captioned her Instagram post. Goulding shared a beautiful picture that shows her wearing a plunging black jacket.
The announcement follows a recent rumor that Caitlyn Jenner had been chosen as MAC's latest celebrity ambassador. But it looks like MAC already had Goulding in mind.
The makeup leaders told E! News that the brand “embraces ALL AGES, ALL RACES and ALL SEXES and is a longstanding supporter of the LGBT community” but they have not signed Caitlyn as their brand ambassador. The brand is “inspired by Caitlyn Jenner, her personal journey” and it also admires “her courage and beauty,” a MAC spokesperson added.
Meanwhile, Goulding joins many spokesmodels who have represented MAC in the past. They include Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Lorde. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Goulding's collection is inspired by her preference for “natural, glowing makeup looks.” It contains “pinkish bronze lipsticks, shimmery nude lip gloss, a natural eyeshadow palette, false lashes and bronzer,” said the website. The collection will hit stores this Christmas.
The “Love Me Like You Do” songstress was recently in the news for deleting a group picture on her Instagram account that also had Katy Perry and Lorde in it. Various websites reported that the singer deleted the photo because she did not want to get herself involved in Perry and Taylor Swift's alleged feud. But the singer told Vulture that the real reason for deleting the picture was that she did not look good in it.
