Squashing the widespread rumours that Caitlyn Jenner was the next face to be snapped up by the beauty emporium, 28-year-old singer Ellie Goulding announced the news on her Instagram account over the weekend, together with a sneak peek of her first make-up collection.

M.A.C has since confirmed the news, adding that the collection will drop in Australian stores come January. They're being extremely coy on the details, but from what we can tell from the single image released so far (below), expect products that deliver a golden glow with just a hint of pop star flash - think a mocha eyeshadow palette, combined bronzer/blush compact, peachy lip colour and feathery false lashes.
