Selena Quintanilla

If makeup news ever has a shot at breaking the internet, this is the moment. MAC Cosmetics has announced that the brand will produce a makeup collection inspired by Tejano music queen Selena Quintanilla, available in the latter half of 2016.

"Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening!" reads the announcement, made on Instagram. The collection is largely a response to an enormous grassroots campaign to have the brand honor Selena's memory, timed to the 20th anniversary of the singer's death, which garnered nearly 38,000 signatures on change.org. 

“I am so excited that M·A·C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena," reads a statement from 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.”

The MAC Selena Quintanilla collection comes at a great time, as the singer's signature deep red lip has become a hot look once again, part of the return of everything 90s. Selena was also known for keeping her eyebrows on fleek (before such a thing existed), and pairing strong black liner with soft pastel shadows, so we can't wait to see what MAC comes up with when the final collection is revealed next year.
