How To Properly Spell MAC Cosmetics


This stands for “Makeup Art Cosmetics”. The letters are separated by periods or dots.

  • It should be written in all capital letters: M·A·C
  • The letters are separated by periods/dots, not spaces
  • It does not include the word “Cosmetics” after M·A·C, as that would be redundant since M·A·C already stands for “Makeup Art Cosmetics”

So while many people colloquially refer to it as “MAC Cosmetics”, the official and proper spelling is M·A·C, with the periods separating the capitalized letters.
