Fire And Ice

it was raining on Sunday here in Louisiana so I decided to spend my day off creating makeup looks. This makeup look like a sunrise sunset type look, but I added a twist blue glitter.

Mac x Aaliyah

When makeup lovers and true fans unite the force is unstoppable. When fellow Selena fans asked Mac to put out a collection in her honor, Mac asked for an x amount of signatures and it was granted.

An Aaliyah fan thought it was time for the late singer to have a collection in honor of the late singer and actress.

Eric Ferrell, whom was Aaliyah’s Makeup Artist, once stated, that Aaliyah’s favorite Mac Cosmetics products were: Chelsey and Cherish lipsticks, Chestnut lip liner, and Expresso and Biscuit eyeshadows.

When the petition was written, in it, was stated that for the Aaliyah’s collection to include the collection standards such as eyeshadows,in my opinion, Expresso and Biscuit should be among, Lipsticks, which should include Chelsey and Cherish, Lipliners, which should include Chestnut, glosses, one should have hint of glitter, but not overbearing, and one should be a brownish nude, a contour and highlight duo, which should be soft and subtle, since Aaliyah’s highlight and contour was always natural, Beauty powder, which should be a nude translucent powder, false lashes, which should be natural, since Aaliyah did not wear over the top lashes, they should also be wispie like, and eyebrow pencils.

The collection is set to drop in the summer of 2018, which is more than enough time to put away your limited edition coins as per this collection will not be permanent.

I think it’s about time Aaliyah was honored as it has been 16 years ago today that the Singer/Actress passed away tragically in an airplane crash. I wish the collection was soon, but is honored, that it is happening.

There is no further information from Mac at this time, but I will update as more information is shared.Disclaimer: I do not own any of the photos used.
