The company’s Senior Vice President and Global Creative Director, Drew Elliott, also spoke highly of the “My Type” rapper in a press release, US Weekly reports.
“Saweetie’s message of self-confidence and female empowerment is the perfect match for a brand like MAC that has always embraced unapologetic self-expression with open arms,” he said.
“She has always loved our products, she told me she has swallowed pounds of MAC lip gloss in her life.”
In accordance with her new role, Saweetie will be the face of upcoming MAC Cosmetics campaigns and collections. The musician will also be teaming up with some of the brand’s artists to showcase her own beauty tips and secrets.
