Korean girl band Blackpink’s lead rapper, Lalisa Manoban – better known by her stage name Lisa – has just been announced as the newest global brand ambassador for M.A.C Cosmetics.
“I have always been a big fan of M.A.C! I like how the brand turns makeup into a form of self-expression which always gives me great confidence on stage,” Lisa says in a press release. “Together with M.A.C, I am excited to invite and empower more audiences as we both have individuality and diversity at our core.”
Besides being part of one of the biggest girl groups to blow up in recent years – who, FYI, recently dropped a full-length album and Netflix documentary – Lisa has also made a name for herself in the fashion world. Back in September, she was tapped as the first ambassador for Celine under Hedi Slimane and was also announced as an ambassador for Bvlgari in Korea.
In her new role, the 23-year-old Thai rapper, singer and dancer will be face of M.A.C’s newest campaigns and collections, and will serve as the muse for the cosmetic brand’s upcoming projects.
“Lisa’s unparalleled talent and bold, fashion-forward style make her the perfect match for MAC,” says Drew Elliott, senior vice president and global creative director for M.A.C Cosmetics in a press lease. “Always confident and never one to shy away from risks, she embodies our commitment to individuality and self-expression above all else. We can’t wait for her fans to see what she has in store for them through our collaboration.”
