Following the footsteps of the Selena Quintanilla-inspired MAC collection that dropped in fall 2016, Aaliyah is also getting her very own makeup tribute!
Similar to Selena, who tragically passed away on March 31, 1995, Aaliyah's life was cut short in 2001 after she and eight others were killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas after filming the Rock the Boat video. Selena was 23 when she died, Aaliyah was 22, both were iconic pop artists of the '90s. Their legacies, however, will forever transcend generations!
Now, in honor of her remarkable trajectory, which included numerous of awards, a movie, and chart-topping hits such as One in a Million and Are You That Somebody? an Aaliyah makeup collection is coming for all of those '90s babies!
Back in 2017, fans created a petition to get the ball rolling. Signed by 26,000 people, the petition was fully supported by Aaliyah's brother, Rashad Haughton and rapper Missy Elliot. Even Aaliyah's glam squad were on board!
Thanks to the fans' commitment, the partnership is officially happening and a sneak peek of the collection has already dropped.
As of now, we know there are a sultry eyeshadow palette and a nude lipstick. Check them out below!
The Aaliyah x MAC collection is expected to launch on June 20th.
