M·A·C (Make-up Art Cosmetics), a leading brand of professional cosmetics, was created in Toronto, Canada in 1984 to support the special needs of professional makeup artists – a collection of colours, products and tools that meet the demanding lighting and studio conditions under which the pros work.
M.A.C's popularity has grown through a tradition of word-of-mouth endorsement from makeup artists, models, photographers and journalists around the world. The M·A·C attitude is best expressed by our artists, seen and felt in over 1,700 M.A.C stores around the world.
Initially formulated for makeup artists, M.A.C products remain professional at heart, providing formulas that endure the rigours of backstage and studio, while remaining sophisticated for everyday use. The dedication to our pro roots can be seen is the extensive range of colours, formulas, finishes and tools.
