When many people think of celebrity makeup artists, Sam Fine comes to mind. For 20 years he has worked on mega stars such as Iman, Jennifer Hudson, Naomi Campbell, and Tyra Banks.

Now, he has finally released his own line of makeup. He has hooked up with Fashion Fair Cosmetics (FFC) to create Signature Makeup.

Last year, Fine was tapped by FFC, which is owned by Johnson Publishing Company, to join the company as creative makeup director. At the time his signature line of cosmetic products was also announced — and at last it is here. Industry experts are looking for Fine to revive FFC, which is more associated with an older generation. Some might not even know that it’s still around, reports the Huffington Post.

With Fine on board and with the debut of his makeup brand, FFC is not your grandmother’s makeup  anymore. Now in its 40th year, FCC recently launched its first-ever mineral liquid foundation collection featuring 18 shades. The Sam Fine For Fashion Fair Supreme Color Collection is inspired by Fine’s world travels, consists of eight lip colors, two eye-color quads and a shimmery lip gloss, adds HuffPo.

“For my first foray into cosmetics this is really special and to be able to continue in a tradition of excellence that Fashion Fair is and was known for,” Fine told the website. “It’s really fun to reinvigorate things and shake up the brand.”

Some of the saturated colors include a vibrant fuchsia lipstick called Pink Parfait and a flashy orange called Moroccan Spice. The lipstick is to be topped off with  Canary Diamond lip gloss. For the quads, there’s the Amalfi Coast colorway, which features a dark, dreamy brown and mossy green.

Sounds like Fine has already made FFC hot again.

    I used to love fashion fair but they change their formulas so much. One month I am one shade and the next month its a completely different color. But I will give this a shot and see how it goes.

    Im a Counter Manager at Macy’s for Fashion Fair. Im loving the products!! Thank you Mr. Fine

  • I haven’t tried Fashion Fair. My mom use to wear it back in the day and two things come to mind: Oily and Red! My mom use to look like a shiny Indian. Maybe they’ve corrected the formula these days . . .

    I love Fashion Fair! The oil control pressed powder gives the most beautiful coverage and it doesn’t even look like I’m wearing it. The other day I went to pick up my regular supply and to my very pleasant surprise I saw the display for the Sam Fine collection! His lip gloss is nice cause it doesn’t have that sticky/gummy feel to it. I’m a second generation FF girl and I’ve turned my daughters (in their twenties) on to it. Hey @xxdiscoxxheaven:disqus We KNOW once people try FF they like it!

    I hope he’ll put together some nice holiday gift sets for them, like other makeup manufacturers do. I emailed them twice and suggested that they create a nice set, consisting of a case with a collection of their various products, because I wanted to give one to each of my daughters as a Christmas present. They never responded, so I bought sets elsewhere. Their products are great. They just weren’t doing anything interesting with them, to market them.

    Fashion fair is awesome. It is a shame that black women don’t support it. It makes shades for us unlike that mac that is sitting in my bag unused
