MAC Glitter and Ice for Holiday 2011: Johnny Weir to Star in the Upcoming Holiday Campaign

Published in: MAC Makeup, News

Color me thrilled, MACaholics! We have some early holiday news. MAC plans to feature Olympic skater and three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir in their upcoming Glitter and Ice Holiday Collection (LOVE HIM!).


According to the New York Post, Johnny just wrapped up a shoot in Miami for Glitter and Ice, and all I have to say about that: there better be sequins in the house; otherwise, Tabs will throw a fit!


MAC loves offbeat collaborations with guys and gals (hello, Dame Edna!), and Johnny, with his funky fashion sense and sassy performances on the ice, sounds like a good fit.

He’s also a major MAC fan and makeup maven. We spoke last year about some of his MAC must-haves and tips

Q: What are your top three tricks to getting your skin looking flawless on camera?

A: Conceal everything you don’t want the world to notice, like blemishes or dark circles, with an amazing concealer like Cle de Peau or MAC concealers. 2) Blot away your shine and oil with MAC’s Blot Powder and Bronzing Powders. 3) Take care of your skin. If your skin feels beautiful and healthy, it will look beautiful and healthy.

Q: What’s a makeup lesson you learned the hard way?

A: When I first started wearing makeup to perform I learned that you need to apply bronzer very evenly. You can’t go out with a mocha face, latte neck and custard ears. I saw a photo of myself and was horrified; needless to say, I never made that mistake again. For men, the important thing is to look like yourself but one hundred times better with the help of makeup… it defeats the purpose when everyone can see how much you’ve got caked on.

Q: What are your three favorite MAC products to use before a performance?

A: MAC Blot Powder, MAC Bronzing Powder [and] MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Soothing Beige.

Work that Glitter and Ice, Johnny!

    judging from the pics, the collection may be heatherette- esque 😉

  2. Adriana says:

    so true…healthy skin IS beautiful skin. bronzer def needs to go on evenly; otherwise its obvious you’re wearing it and you walk around like a cheetah…with spots

    Hi Tabs 🙂

    When do we use blot powder ( or oil blocking powder ) ?
    I’m using it after my moisturizer and then I use a mineral powder to make my face even. Any tips

      Hi Andrea,

      I usually do it last as a setting powder. 🙂 I use a big fluffy brush and do a light dusting on my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose.

      How cute is that kitty!

  6. Nina says:

    ohhh yeahhhh … <3 Johnny! im excited for this collection!

  7. Olivia A. says:

    Exciting!!! 😀 Definitely seems like a fantastic match 🙂

  8. Paigest says:

    I LOVE HIM!!! This is so cool they are doing this!! Can’t wait to see what they come out with!

  9. Heidi says:

    This promises to be a really fun collaboration!

  10. Cassy says:

    Very excited. I agree he better bring on the sequins and bring on the fab. Even if I hate everything, though, I’ll probably still get something. Darn my need to have things endorsed by people I like

  11. Trisha says:

    I love Johnny Weir! I think he revived figure skating, because it’s kinda been stagnant lately. In my opinion anyway. Good call on Mac!

    What a great collaboration! Can’t wait to see what they come out with.

  13. Kim says:

    I love glitter AND ice! 🙂 Actually the name makes me think of Blades of Glory. Must be movie memory week for me!

  14. Erin says:

    This is amazing news! I can’t wait to see what will be in this collection. Very excited!

  15. Chris25 says:

    I like Johnny Weir, but I don’t know how I feel about this collection. It makes me a little uneasy to see so many companies (Tarte, OPI) hop on the latest pop culture phenom and make a collection out of it.

    I guess I’ll wait and see what they come out with. 🙂

  16. Elle says:

    YESSSS!! This and the bloggers’ collection has totally made me excited all over again for MAC. Can’t wait for this one! I can’t get enough Johnny Weir. Did you ever see his show? Totally addictive…

  17. Taryn says:

    I am psyched!!! Love Johnny Weir. MAC is really stepping up their game. Between this collection & the Gareth Pugh collection coming out. I cannot describe my happiness. I just hope that the product is good for the price. I’m looking for some new colors and finishes. Packaging doesn’t do much for me one way or the other. As long as the product is good I’m sold.
    When should we start finding out the color story and pictures for Johnny’s holiday collection? Will it be out in December?

    • Karen says:

      Holiday info typically starts trickling in come August or September. 🙂 I’ll let you know if I hear anything — I’m stoked for it too!

  18. Instant Karma says:

    Any collection with Johnny Weir is going to be VERY fun. I can’t wait!

  19. Dana says:

    Johnny Weir is amazing. I’m so excited for this!
