The stars follow in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus, RuPaul and Nicki Minaj, among others, in fronting the charity drive.

Viva Glam was started with a single lipstick in 1994 by MAC founders Frank Angelo and Frank Toskan as part of the brand’s Aids Fund, and has become a popular part of MAC’s offerings.

Taking to social media Taraji, who has worked with MAC recently on her own collection, shared the campaign shot with her followers.

“Excited to have @jussiesmollett join me and @MACcosmetics on the #VIVAGLAM campaign this Feb! All sales of the lipstick help to end HIV/AIDS! @maccosmeticsaidsfund,” she posted.

She also shared a close up image of her Viva Glam lipstick and gloss, a vibrant pink shade encased in pink packaging, and reposted a message from Instagram user beautyxthabree: “DEETS BELOW!!!! I CANT WAITTTT OMG from @maccosmetics - Power! Poise! Pizzazz!

“Do it the @tarajiphenson and @jussiesmollett way. Be a force to be reckoned with in Taraji’s matte fuchsia with pearl Lipstick and matching shimmery Lipglass. Coming soon! #VIVAGLAM #mac #macgirls #macattack #beautyblog #empire #vivaglam.”

For the advert, 46-year-old Taraji poses in jeans, black hat, leather jacket and a white tank top which she is pulling down on, with a cat flick eye and a slick of the pink lipstick finishing the look.

Jussie, 33, stands directly behind her in a similar outfit, holding Taraji tight around the waist.

Jussie also uploaded the official snap, and reminded people why the charity drive is so important.

“@MACcosmetics through the #MACAIDSFund is on a mission to end AIDS and since the 90s, they’ve raised $430 million through the sales of #VivaGlam lip products. Every single cent of the sales of these products help to end HIV/AIDS. I believe that together we can end this epidemic once and for all. Love y'all,” he wrote.
