Danai Gurira Uses MAC Cosmetics at 'Black Panther' Premiere

Last week, at the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, makeup artist Tym Buacharern used MAC Cosmetics for Danai Gurira's look. 

“I wanted the look to be a celebration. It was to have fun with colors, stone embellishments, sparkle, and shine. I wanted to create something that Danai hasn't done before,” said Buacharern, adding, “Her main feature is her eye makeup with purples, blues, golds, and rich tones. I was inspired by Africa. I wanted her eyes to pop in a playful way by giving her a more colorful look that represents what I feel is Wakanda.”

MAC recently announced the MAC x Wakanda Forever special, limited-edition makeup collection. The 18 piece collection celebrating the film will launch in stores and online November 1.
