The star of the small and silver screen, Taraji P. Henson will be collaborating with major beauty brand MAC Cosmetics, and the line will be hitting shelves this fall.

The collaboration will launch in September and will include a bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner, mascara, and makeup brush. The first images of the line premiered on MAC’s Instagram page earlier this week.

Other celebrities who have had MAC collaboration lines include Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Ru Paul, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Mary J.

Henson’s memoir, Around the Way Girl, is also coming out this fall in October.


The memoir is being published by Simon & Schuster and the promoted excerpt reads, ““I’m just a girl who went to Hollywood with my son, $700, and a dream. There were some detours along the way, some heartache, and a whole lot of hustle. My family, friends, and fans always keep it real with me. Know that I’m going to keep it real with you. Check out my story. I hope you laugh with me and cry with me and maybe get a little bit inspired.”


In addition to her new MAC Cosmetics line and memoir coming out, her hit show which earned her a Golden Globe last year for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama, Empire will also be airing its third season on September 21st this fall.


Despite working in film and television for years, Henson’s starring role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s hit show Empire has brought her wider recognition in mainstream media.


There is no further word on the exact release date of the collection.
