The makeup line is inspired by the Avatar sequel, ‘Avatar: The Way of Water.’
The film will launch in theaters on December 16th.
The makeup line was inspired by the characters in the film, and the vibrant, bioluminescent hues throughout the land and sea in the world of Pandora.
The line includes palettes that are vegan and cruelty-free—along with highlighters, lipsticks, glosses, paints, and setting spray.
