MAC Cosmetics Logo

The brand logo is verbal and consists of an abbreviation. The abbreviation encrypts the message, the story of what the company does: Make-up Art Cosmetics. Originally, all products were created for professional makeup artists of fashion shows and makeup artists.

The letters are written in broad strokes as if the word is stretched across the surface. The technique indicates broad strokes when working with a brush during makeup application.

At the bottom, the elements are linked together, telling the story:

  • The sequential application of makeup. The importance of each step in creating a look.
  • The never-ending personal grooming process that should last a lifetime.
  • The brand’s staying power to keep your make-up looking great for longer.
  • The wide range of products. Creativity and diversity are the company’s main credo.
  • Covering the world with products and people of different countries and ages. From the beginning, the brand was distributed worldwide with a slogan: “for everyone.”

Between the letters of the inscription at the top, there were dots, as if made with foundation or nail polish, which once again emphasized the theme of cosmetics. The application of any liquid makeup product begins with a dot and its subsequent shading, which shows the logo.

The dot is also a prototypical accent. Cosmetics help to set accents by creating geometrically correct and attractive proportions. To crystallize the beauty that nature has endowed a woman with.

The dots helped separate the first letters of the words encoded in the logo (Make-up Art Cosmetics).

Font and Colors

A combination of black and white is used for the emblem. In this case, the font and the background can change places depending on the situation.

  • Black – clarity, highlighting eyelashes and eyebrows, emphasizing facial features.
  • White – beauty; the application of makeup, like creating a picture on a blank sheet of paper; the appearance of a new, non-existent image, thanks to cosmetics.

Sometimes the letters are colored red to convey a love for customers, energy, and passion for their business.

The font of the logo is unique by stretching and flattening the letters. The glyphs M and A gaps tell about the company’s openness to everything new, tolerance, and willingness to care for customers with different views and needs.
