Twenty years after her death, Selena Quintanilla, the Tejano music icon and sensation is fulfilling her dream of getting her own makeup collection.
M.A.C. has announced that it has a Selena-inspired beauty collection in the works that will launch in the latter part of 2016.
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades,” says M.A.C. Senior Vice President, James Gager. “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.”
In 1995, Selena was murdered by the president of her namesake fan club. Her biggest album, Dreaming of You, was released posthumously that same year.
“I am so excited that M.A.C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena,” says her older sister, Suzette Quintanilla. “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.”
For now, there’s no hint or preview as to what the #MACSelena products will be or look like, but we expect them to be full of bold color.
