Santigold’s Smashbox Makeup Collaboration


Santigold introduced her first ever makeup collection — with Smashbox Cosmetics! The bold singer-songwriter perfectly captured her colorful, graphic style and favorite stage looks in her customized limited-edition collection for the brand, called The Santigolden Age. Get all the details here!

“Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age – an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image,” read a press release for the launch. “This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.” Santi was very hands-on with the creation of her products and their packaging — she even told Vogue that she made cut-0ut collages that were turned into the designs of the palette’s cases!


“It’s interesting because [when] they approached me, I had been sort of griping about certain things in the makeup I wanted. Like eyeliners that don’t come off in a second!” Santigold told Vogue. “Because I sweat—I work it out up there! I like makeup that pops, that doesn’t look like one thing in the stick and then you put it on and it’s the mild version. As a brown-skinned person, there is so much makeup that does not work for me. This collection looks good on all different skin colors, and that was something that was important in designing it. I love playing with color, making art and packaging, so it was right up my alley.”

The collection launches on April 1, and is a true must-have for beauty gurus and music fans alike!
