Be prepared, beauty lovers: a Lion King makeup collection is coming, and it’s fit for royalty. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, Beyoncé’s makeup artist Sir John has teamed up with Disney and Luminess Cosmetics for an eight-piece collection inspired by the iconic film, which is getting a live-action reboot this summer.
According to a press release, the collection pulls inspiration from the film itself, but also African culture. Sir John further explained in conversation with THR: “I was inspired while on safari in South Africa for Global Citizen, and I remember looking at how warm and rich the colors were, and I didn’t need to look any further than the landscape.” The designer added that the Lion King characters provided a unique opportunity for creativity, and he tried to capture the regal beauty and danger of lions and other big cats.
Bustle reports that the collection will be available on June 15 on LuminessBeauty.com, and will also be available online at Ulta’s website the following day. Shoppers will be able to purchase the Lion Kingcollection at select Ulta locations beginning July 1, just in time for the highly anticipated movie, which hits theaters on July 19.
The collection itself can be previewed on Luminess’s website, and the popular Instagram account TrendMood also recently posted a breakdown of what makeup lovers can anticipate. Products range in price from $24 to $42, and each piece has a cute name referencing the classic Disney tale, such as the Be Brave Lipstick in Pounce or Lion Mane ($24), and the Circle of Life highlighter ($40). The collection also includes two palettes: the Kingdom Sculpting Palette for highlighting and contouring ($42), and the Can’t Wait to Be Queen Eyeshadow Palette ($42) featuring an array of peach and brown shades, along with deep emerald, a shimmering violet, and more majestic hues. Of course, there’s an option to purchase the entire vault for $250 if you can’t choose.
Sir John and Luminess also previewed the collection on Instagram, along with mysterious captions like “Step into the light” and “Soon it will be revealed.” Like the reign of a king, this makeup collection is only going to be around for a limited time, so make sure you get your hands (or should I say paws) on it before it’s all gone.
