This week, a queen-sized gasp could be heard in unison around the globe from DragStarDiva performers that have ever paid tribute on-stage with a Selena number. Quintanilla, a Tejana legend from South Texas who amassed a fan base like no other, passed before her time 20 years ago. She will be honored with her own MAC Cosmetics collection, #MACSelena, in 2016.
Over the course of the past 20 years we have seen divas turning Selena numbers at gay clubs coast-to-coast. Selena was an inspiration to many performers, and her songs continue to be a favorite for drag queen numbers.
Who can we thank for this much-anticipated collection? Super-fan Patty Rodriguez, who started a petition on change.org to encourage other Selena fans – and makeup aficionados – to join her in asking the makeup powerhouse to create special pieces to honor the beloved superstar.
While it is still a mystery which pieces we can expect to see (and buy), our guess is there will be lots of red lips.
Want some #MACSelena for yourself? We’ve got dibs on some of the collection and will be surprising some DragStarDIvas will some pieces. Share this link on your Facebook wall, and we will put your name in the hat (or heel) for a chance to win. Email us to let us know that you have shared. XOXO
