Asked by Elle magazine to define beauty, Ditto responded, ‘There’s no such thing as ugly.’
Her first venture into the beauty industry, Ditto launched a signature make-up line in collaboration with MAC Cosmetics. This limited collection comprises 25 pieces, including eyeliners, nail varnishes, lipsticks and mascaras. With their bright colours and fun names – “Near Beth Experience” nail varnish in yellow, or a blue and brown shadow/liner duo called “Beth or Glory” – the products radiate the singer’s personality and style.
It’s a natural collaboration for The Gossip’s frontwoman, who tells beauty blog Musings of a Muse that she loves makeup. Ditto declares herself ‘passionate about colour’ and ‘a child of the 80s,’ sentiments that obviously influenced the development of the MAC line.
Beth Ditto for MAC is available in stores and online until July, 19 2012.
