This might just be the best beauty tribute This is the sweetest beauty tribute
Nearly two years ago we wrote a story about Aaliyah’s fans asking MAC to create a collection in her memory. Now, it seems that their efforts have finally paid off as a few days ago MAC took to Instagram to announce that they’ll be releasing an Aaliyah collection next summer.
Despite passing away in 2001, aged 22, the R&B singer’s supporters were rallying around in an attempt to persuade MAC to use her to front their next Limited Edition collection. A Change.org petition was even set up, which gathered over 26 thousand signatures before it got closed.
Fans excitedly left comments on the post saying that they couldn’t wait for the collection but that they hoped that the products would do Aaliyah justice.
A huge fan of the make-up brand when she was alive, even her brother was on board and claims that Aaliyah’s make-up musts were MAC’s Chelsea lipstick, Cherish Lipstick and Chestnut lipliner – cult nudey shades that remain MAC classics today.
When asked whether a posthumous collection would be appropriate, her followers claim that the Brooklyn-born beauty still stands for all ages, all races and all sexes.
With MAC celebrity collaborations including everyone from Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry to Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, we have no doubt that this will be another beauty bestseller and we can’t wait for 2018.
