After a 2 year process and petitions, fans will now get their long-awaited Aaliyah x Mac Cosmetics collection. It was announced on the anniversary of the singer’s passing that for 2018 Mac cosmetics will release an Aaliyah palette. See here
“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” the brand wrote announcing the news. “Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the MAC Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay Tune 2018.”
Now Aaliyah was a girl next door with movie star looks. She kept her tomboy style and makeup simple. With nude being all the rage lately this is perfect timing.
“This isn’t the first time MAC has created a fan-requested collection that pays tribute to a young star whose life ended too early: The brand’s Selena-inspired collection debuted in 2016 to overwhelming success. So it was no doubt that MAC was eager to respond to calls for another fan-driven collection — but it was simply a matter of whether Aaliyah’s family was on board.” Fashionista
