Nadine Nassib Njeim truly has the Midas touch.

The actress and 2014 Miss Lebanon winner has teamed up with MAC to launch a limited-edition collection, with its golden hues influenced by the region itself.

The star, 36, has released a beauty line with the cosmetics giant "inspired by the golden colours and the beauty of the Middle East".

The Mosaic Masterpiece collection includes an eyeshadow palette, a number of lip colours, a gilded highlighter and several eye products, MAC revealed on Instagram.

"My fans have always been my source of inspiration and strength. Their never-ending support and love motivates me, and always gives me hope for a better tomorrow," Njeim told the brand.

"Now more than ever, my message remains the same – every woman is uniquely strong and beautiful in her own way."

The collection landed in stores and online on Wednesday, September 30, with the actress sporting a cobalt gown by Lebanese couturier Zuhair Murad in the campaign imagery.

The news follows a tumultuous few months for Njeim, after the actress was injured in the devastating blast that ripped through Beirut on August 4.

The beauty pageant winner underwent a six-hour operation after sustaining injuries while in her high-rise apartment in the Lebanese capital. Njeim was home alone watching television on a couch located beside the window when the explosion, which killed at least 190 people and wounded thousands more, occurred.

"I thank God for giving me a second chance,” she wrote on social media at the time.

“The explosion was close and the scene is not the way people describe it. Whoever enters the house and sees blood everywhere would think I didn't make it.

"What I saw on the ground is hard to describe, as if it were a nuclear bomb. Thank you God for protecting me and my children who weren't home. I thank God every second. May God have mercy on the fallen, may God protect the injured."
