The mega make up cosmetic company MAC announced that they are honoring late singer Selena Quintanilla by making a special edition collection line in 2016. This is history in the making because she is the first Latina to get her own line and Quintanilla is an icon in her own right. She tragically lost her life at the age of 23 when she was killed by her best friend and president of her fan club Yolanda Saldívar.
The family have plans to create a hologram version of Selena that will record and perform new songs, to be called “Selena the One.” and hopefully, they will get a tour in 2018.
Here is what the cosmetic line and the late singer’s sister Suzette said about their new venture:
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades. 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.”
“I am so excited that M·A·C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. 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 make up line is set to stores and online within 2016 and this year, Quintanilla will have celebrated her 44th birthday.
