Beloved Latin singer Selena is getting her own makeup collection. M.A.C cosmetics is honoring the late crooner, who was shot by her fan club president Yolanda Saldívar in 1995, with a dedicated makeup collection due out late next year. It seems that fan support was a deciding factor, as M.A.C mentions in an Instagram post announcing the forthcoming range. “Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening!”
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world that has continued to grow over the last two decades,” M.A.C creative director James Gager tells PEOPLE. “We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M.A.C’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena-inspired M.A.C collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.”
According to Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla, starting a makeup line was a dream of the singer’s, so this tribute collection posthumously fulfills one of Selena’s dreams. “Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late-night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”
We can’t wait for the collection to drop. We’re expecting to see a color for Selena’s signature red lip and perhaps a lot of pretty neutrals and certainly a brow pencil to help create her deeply pigmented slender brow.
Look out for the collection in late 2016.[via People]
