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.”
It started out as a hush-hush. Then, comes all the faux creative campaign made by fans, with petition site build up, too. But finally! It’s official! As a fan of Selena Quintanilla since childhood, and a makeup artist MAC Cosmetics fanatic, this is a dream come true combo. She is part of the 90’s pop culture. The latina singer was the youngest to make it to a commercial success.
Her hits “Dreaming of you” and the dancy Tejano-meets-West “Bidi bidi bom bom” has left a mark and had added touch to the international music scene, giving more recognition to the Latino/Latina talents. But sadly, she left the world in shock: she died being gunned by her manager Yolanda. The world mourned her death. A biopic film about her “Selena” starred actress Jennifer Lopez, hand picked by her dad. The film has made Lopez a household name, reconnecting fans to Selena once again, and has brought people closer to Selena. Every detail about the film has Selena’s family participation, especially her dad; before-during-after the film was in production. In a short span of time, she was able given joy to this world. And I was one of them. I cannot wait for this collection.
