Selena Quintanilla is one of the biggest Tejano music stars of all time. Not only was she incredibly talented, but she was also a jaw-dropping beauty. It’s only fitting that MAC Cosmetics would design a makeup line just for her.

Yesterday, (July 16) MAC Cosmetics confirmed via their Facebook page that they would be partnering with Selena’s family to create the Selena Quintanilla Makeup Collection.

“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world that has continued to grow over the last two decades,” MAC Senior Vice President James Gager said in a statement. “We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena inspired MAC collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.”

You may be wondering how all of this came about. Well according to Billboard, earlier this year, a mega fan by the name of Patty Rodriguez created an online petition via, asking MAC to create a line dedicated to her idol. Fortunately, the company obliged. Selena’s sister Suzette says she’s excited about the collaboration.


“I am so excited that MAC 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.”​

I don’t know about you all, but as soon as the collection drops, I’m there.
