The wait will soon be over. After the highly successful Selena Quintanilla collection, MAC Cosmetics has revealed that they will be releasing collection inspired by singer and actress Aaliyah. The news comes just one day before she tragically lost her life in a plane accident in the Bahamas after shooting the music video for Rock da Boat.

It was the strength of Aaliyah’s fans who helped MAC to honor the fallen icon with a petition to produce an Aaliyah collection two years ago, which garnered over 26,000 signatures before it closed:

In her short career, Aaliyah’s style and image changed but at the same time remained true to who she was. From her early days of baggy clothes and sunglasses, to her iconic and signature hairstyle inspired by actress Veronica Lake, Aaliyah was truly ahead of her time and I cannot wait to see what MAC does with her legacy.
