Selena Quintanilla is being honored with a MAC Cosmetics collection of her own – and you can have early access to it!
According to E! News, a makeup line inspired by the style and spirit of the late singer will be coming out later this year. MAC Cosmetics collaborated with Selena Quintanilla’s family – including her sister Suzette Arriaga – to help create the collection.
The report states that Suzette opened up about her vision for the MAC Cosmetics line as well as her appreciation for Selena’s fan base over two decades after her passing.
“I wanted the colors to be about her personality, what she wore on and offstage. She has been gone for 21 years, and for this collaboration to happen, it’s pretty much incredible. It just shows the love her fan base has even though she’s passed. It’s a great honor to have MAC collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans.”
Before the MAC Cosmetics collection inspired by Selena Quintanilla is made available to the general public, the cosmetics manufacturer has created an opportunity for early access. How can you get it? By being a member of the #MACSelect club!
MAC Cosmetics even promoted the opportunity on Twitter along with a sneak peek at a part of the Selena collection.
Joining the #MACSelect club will allow you to pre-order the lipsticks, bronzer, eye shadows and blush from the Selena Quintanilla-inspired collection. Instead of dealing with product availability when the collection is released in October, members that took advantage of the pre-order opportunity will already have theirs reserved and ready.
Selena Quintanilla was shot and killed on March 23, 1995 at the age of 23 by Yolanda Saldivar – the president of Selena’s fan club and manager of her clothing boutiques.
As mentioned by Suzette, Selena’s legacy, and the impact that she left, is still felt by countless fans, critics and other celebrities more than two decades after her tragic death.
For instance, to celebrate her life and the 21st anniversary of her final studio albumDreaming of You, Madame Tussauds will reportedly unveil a wax figure in Selena Quintanilla’s honor on August 30.
Colin Thomas, the manager of the Madame Tussauds Hollywood museum, opened up about the museum’s decision to create a wax figure of Selena in a press statement.
“At Madame Tussauds, our figures represent icons who have made a significant impact on our culture. That perfectly describes Selena. Her influence has transcended generations and her passionate fans continue to be inspired by her to this day. We recognize this and in response, we are proud to join her fans in celebrating her legacy by immortalizing her.”
The museum is even hosting a contest that give Selena’s fans the chance to win VIP access to the exhibit’s launch party along with an annual pass.
According to ABC 13, Thomas claims his team of artists and sculptors worked alongside Selena Quintanilla’s family to “really capture the singer’s iconic pose, expression, signature hairstyle, makeup and wardrobe.” They reportedly even visited The Selena Museum located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Selena Quintanilla will also be honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame next year.
