5 Things We Want from the MACSELENA Collection

#macselena 5 things fans want from the MAC Selena Collection

Us modern Tejanas love Selena. Not only do we still jam to her music (it’s practically required at every wedding, quinceañera and house party), but we still love and emulate her beauty look. She taught us the power of red lipstick, after all.

So when MAC Cosmetics announced the MAC+Selena Quintanilla Collection on Twitter with the #MACSelena hashtag  in response to the overwhelmingly popular online petition, millions of Texas women went bananas. It was the right business move for MAC and made Latinas felt appreciated and listened to.

While we are thrilled about the announcement, and are waiting with baited breath to buy the collection (which will surely sell out in minutes), MAC still has a big responsibility to get it right. Selena’s beauty look was iconic – she was the epitome of Tex-Mex beauty with her long dark hair, gorgeous smile, and endless lashes.

No one knows Selena like her fans, so here are five things that true Selena fans will likely be expecting from the MAC collection.

1. A Serious Lip Color Collection

Matte burgundy, shiny red, a perfect nude – if you want to do Selena justice, lip colors and finishes must be on point.

2. Matte Foundation

We rarely saw Selena looking shiny. Instead her skin was always perfectly matte and enviously smooth and even.

3. Warm Earth-Toned Blushes

Before the Kardashians popularized the intense contour, Selena rocked a pretty, barely there flush with a terracotta-hued blush. It gave her face a gentle definition and a warm glow.

4. Bold Eyeliner

Selena rocked a cat-eye before many of us could even hold an eyeliner straight. In order to achieve her sexy look, a velvety black liner that creates a thick line would be ideal. Only in the blackest black, please.

5. Lengthening and Thickening Mascara or False Lashes

Long fluttery lashes were an essential part of Selena’s look. For extra credit, MAC should also consider including flattering (not too over the top) false lashes as part of their collection.

2016 can’t come soon enough! But until the #MACSELENA launch day arrives, we’ll save our pennies and wait as patiently as we can.
