When Rosalía first started performing at the age of 16, she couldn’t afford a makeup artist. “I did my makeup before every show, and the first thing I bought was M.A.C’s Ruby Woo,” she shared over the phone. That’s why today’s announcement feels beyond surreal to the neo-flamenco singer. She’s collaborated with the iconic makeup brand to release her collection of lipsticks, glosses, an eyeshadow palette, and nail lacquers, available on the brand’s website on October 1st and in stores on October 4th.
Named “Aute Cuture” after her number-one single, the collection took more than a year to develop and is filled with rich reds (the singer’s “favorite primary color”), golds, and neutrals. There’s even a reinterpretation of M.A.C’s best-selling red Ruby Woo lipstick: Rusi Woo, which has a slightly warmer undertone and a matte finish. “It blows my mind that I now have my own [version of Ruby Woo],” she says.

Rosalía is known for her extravagant nails, so it only fits that M.A.C would take this moment to re-launch into the category with six shades of cream polish in lollipop-inspired bottles and two versions of bejeweled nail stickers. “My nails are a radical form of femininity for me,” she says. “I love wearing super long nails because I feel like it gives me strength.”
Feeling empowered is an essential theme throughout the collection—not only through her nail art, but also through the colors Rosalía meticulously chose to be threaded throughout the line: “red is very powerful and strong because it’s always the color you look at first, and it has a lot of energy”; “I have loved gold since I was a kid because it reminds me of my mom, she wore little gold rings and hoops”; “there are so many earthy tones in the collection because my grandfather worked in the fields when I was a child, and I was surrounded by nature a lot—I think it influenced who I am as an artist.”
