Rapper Nicki Minaj, 26, and singer Ricky Martin, 39, are joining forces as the new faces of MAC Makeup’s Viva Glam beauty line. Strange pairing, right?
This isn’t Minaj’s first time to collaborate with the famous makeup brand; On November 26, 2010 she released aÂ limited-edition cotton candy-pink lipstick with MAC to coincide with the debut of her album “Pink Friday.” And they sold fast! I went to the makeup counter THAT day to get one for myself and they were sold out halfway through the day.
Martin and Minaj, who are currently in Miami shooting ad campaigns with famed photographer David LaChappelle, will officially take over their roles as spokesmodels for the brand in February of 2012 when they replace the current spokesperson, Lady GaGa.
Viva Glam was established in 1994 to raise funds to support men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS all over the world. Their sales of limited-edition lipsticks and lip glosses, have raised $224 million for theirÂ MAC AIDS Fund to date.
Nothin’ like buying some makeup for a good cause!
