Beth Ditto is just flat out awesome, so it makes sense that her namesake makeup collection would be, too. We reported way back in January that the collection was happening, and now it's here; you can snag pieces from her very colorful polka-dot themed line starting June 7. Ditto famously loves makeup--she even told MAC she wanted to be a makeup artist at one point--and is known for her pretty dramatic on- and off-stage looks. "I am a child of the 80s. When I was about five years old MTV was made illegal in my hometown, so it felt like I was stuck on a deserted island with both Cyndi Lauper and Boy George's music," she said in a release. "They didn't want you to pay attention only to their music or makeup--they wanted you to pay attention to both!" As a result, makeup and music just naturally go together for her.

The campaign features Ditto--who counts Peggy Moffitt and Grace Jones as beauty inspirations--covered with polka dots (which MAC artists applied with a potato!) and sporting a big dramatic eye painted on her hand. And in case she wasn't already endearing enough, Ditto wanted her mom to come on the shoot with her. Watch below as Ditto gets prepped, and Mama Ditto gets a Beth Ditto-makeover. It's gonna make you like her even more.
