We’ve spoken and they’ve listened. Our wildest dreams finally came to fruition. Aaliyah will be getting her own collection at MAC Cosmetics
Countless petitions have been drawn up in regards to MAC releasing a line for the late great singer Aaliyah. Prior to today, it seems like everyone received a collection expect for the icon herself. Well the power of social media has graciously pushed through.
Tomorrow (August 25) marks the 16th anniversary of her fatal plane crash while filming visuals for “Rock the Boat” in The Bahamas. Aaliyah rose to stardom in the 90s serving us with hits like “Age Aint Nothing But A Number,” and “One in a Million.” Not only was her music iconic, but her style brought fourth aesthetics that we still mimic today.
Aaliyah typically wore a fresh neutral face with a bold lip. Here’s a fun fact, Aaliyah’s staple lip was the “Chestnut” lip pencil with Kiehl’s Blackberry lipgloss. MAC Cosmetics made the official announcement on all of their platforms with the caption “Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all. Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the MAC Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018. #AaliyahforMAC”
The Aaliyah for MAC collection will be released in the Summer of 2018 which gives us plenty of time to set those coins aside. Hopefully, the brand will honor the superstar in the most respectful way by staying true to her looks and personality.
