On-screen characters are the hottest new beauty influencers. There’s something magical about the way fictional characters can totally captivate us – whether as kids or adults. Makeup brands have managed to combine our two loves into one with irresistible collaborations that have us throwing our money happily at them. And truthfully, who doesn’t love a good collaboration? From the screen to the makeup aisle, here are 5 that you don’t want to miss.
MAC X Aladdin
MAC cosmetics is taking us on a magic carpet ride with an exciting collaboration with Disney, featuring the highly anticipated live-action remake of Aladdin. The limited edition collection comprises of lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes and bronzers that draw inspiration from Princess Jasmine’s confidence and beauty. The golden tones and intricate packaging are reminiscent of the mystery and intrigue of Agrabah, where the magical story is set.
ColourPop X Disney Princesses
The dream of becoming a Disney Princess is now a possibility with ColourPop’s Disney Princess collection. Like it’s namesake, this collaboration is inspired by some of Disney’s most iconic princesses like Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Tiana, Jasmine and Snow White. This 18-product collection comprises of an eyeshadow palette, 6 single eyeshadows, 2 highlighters, 3 lip glosses and 6 lipsticks designed for each princess.
ColourPop X Disney Villains
On the other end of the spectrum, ColourPop X Disney Villains is here to help you embrace your inner baddie. This limited edition collection draws inspiration from your favourite anti heroes like Ursula, Maleficent, Cruella and Hades. This drop includes highlighters, jelly shadows, lipsticks, lip glosses, glitter pastes, and an evil eyeshadow palette that has a mixture of deep metallics and jewel-toned shades.

Sephora X Marvel
Just in time for the release of Avengers: Endgame, Sephora is here to give comic book nerds the beauty treat of their dreams with an exclusive Marvel collaboration. Featuring 9 makeup and skincare products, Sephora has thought of everything. From a Thor themed eyeshadow palette and Captain America blusher, to a Marvel Heroes face mask set and brush set, you name it. This heroic collection is sure to ignite your inner superhero.
Urban Decay X Game of Thrones
Although Game of Thrones is not a movie, this cult favourite series still deserves a shout out. You could say that an Urban Decay Game of Thrones collection is coming (pun intended). With the premiere of the eighth and final season, it’s only fitting that Urban Decay immortalises this fierce universe in this highly anticipated collaboration. This six-piece collection features a mother of dragons highlight palette, and an eyeshadow brush inspired by Arya Stark’s Needle and Jon Snow’s Longclaw.
Super fans will adore the eyeshadow palette with a literal 3D pop up of the iron throne, with shades divided into four houses. House Targaryen consists of gleaming purples and reds, House Stark has rich jewel tones and fittingly, House Lannister has shades dripping with gold.
