Famed celebrity makeup artist, Sir John &  Luminess Cosmetics are proud to present a Limited Edition Collection inspired by Disney’s The Lion King.

In partnering with Luminess Cosmetics, known for their high quality & innovative products, Sir John was able to create a limited edition collection for Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King”.  The collaboration has created a one-of-a-kind makeup collection featuring highly pigmented formulas with colors curated from the African landscape to create equally stunning day and night looks. The highly-pigmented rich formulas all come together in hand-designed etched packaging, inspired by the iconic scenes and characters from the film.

DISNEY'S THE LION KING
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Billy Eichner as Timon, with Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, and James Earl Jones as Mufasa. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way,  Disney’s “The Lion King” roars into theaters on July 19, 2019.
