Profile

Frank Toskan is the co-founder of MAC Cosmetics.

When Toskan co-founded MAC with his late partner Frank Angelo in 1984, he had no idea that what started as a modest models’ makeup brand would become a beacon for social justice. Since 1994, its Viva Glam lipstick campaign has raised more than $300 million for AIDS causes and the company has also been a champion of environmental responsibility and animal rights.

In his early teens, Toskan was rebellious. So he never expected to see himself leading one of the America’s biggest cosmetics brands. Now, he’s known as one of the faces behind MAC (and an elusive one at that), and a proud family man.

Lessons Learned

1) I have always believed that if you want to hire creative people, you can’t clip their wings.

2) You can have it all, just not all at once. The way to have it all is to not need to have everything at once.

Inspiring Quotes

Frank Toskan's Quotes

The best advice I ever got came from my parents and it was that when you empower others to be their best, you empower yourself.

Frank Toskan

When you go into a MAC store, I think you sense that the people are a bit different, that they might look out of place behind an Estée Lauder counter. There’s a freedom to express themselves, which was not the norm when we started in the business. Maybe it still isn’t.
