M·A·C have announced the launch of Tomorrow’s Artist in partnership with gal-dem & IBY.  M·A·C Cosmetics was built on artistry and started as a community of professionals, supporting grassroots talent, to renowned household names. A brand that has continuously lead the inclusivity conversation since its conception in 1984, M·A·C Cosmetics has recognised the lack of diversity in the beauty industry, particularly when it comes to artistry talent. Seeking to address this, M·A·C Cosmetics has teamed up with Incredible Brilliant Youth and gal-dem to launch the Tomorrow’s Artist programme, the latest example of the brand’s support for emerging talent.

A six-week course which launched in mid-August, the programme supports young people from marginalised backgrounds with a personal and professional development programme. The trainees worked with M·A·C Cosmetics and Incredible Brilliant Youth to learn more about the makeup industry, up-skill and enhance their artistry skills with key industry professionals, create engaging content, and gain new-generation business knowledge.

gal-dem will document the journey with a series highlighting the lack of diversity in the industry. The three-part series will run from October to November with one episode airing per week, featuring highlights of how the programme, M·A·C Cosmetics, and Incredible Brilliant Youth’s services benefit the trainees.  For more on this, and all the brand’s inclusivity initiatives, vist their website.
