Selena inspires posthumous M•A•C line

M•A•C Cosmetics has announced they are releasing a special collection of makeup inspired by late Mexican American singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.

The famous Mexican American songstress, who is behind hits like Bidi Bidi Bom Bom and Como La Flor, hit it big in both Latin America and the United States just before she died at the age of 23 in 1995.

Unfortunately Selena was murdered, but MAC Cosmetics is interested in keeping her memory alive in a gorgeous way by introducing a collection of makeup dedicated to the late singer.

“Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening! We are excited to announce the M•A•C Selena Quintanilla collection, available in 2016. @SelenaQOfficial #MACSelena,” the brand wrote on their Instagram account Thursday, attached to a flyer that featured Selena’s signature icon.

The M•A•C + Selena line came about in an extraordinary way.

Back in February her fans created a petition on asking the company to make a collection in honour of the star.

The petition garnered over 37,000 signatures and the demand for the line impressed M•A•C Cosmetics.

However, the company was always open to creating a collection inspired by Selena.

“The loyalty and enthusiasm of Selena’s fans are clearly evident and we love this,” the company wrote in a statement five months ago. “M·A·C admires the passion and joy Selena brought to the world. She was an amazing person with amazing talent. We consider all types of feedback like this as we plan our collaborations.”
