At the start of 2015, Jennifer Risinger—a self-professed Aaliyah superfan—began a petition to MAC proclaiming they create an Aaliyah-inspired makeup collection. The determined fan set out on a mission to make her opinion known by citing MAC’s mission statement, “All ages, All races, All sexes," which gained thousands of signatures in the process.

After years of petitioning, Risinger’s efforts have finally paid off with MAC’s Thursday announcement that they will be debuting an Aaliyah for MAC collection set for release on the summer of 2018. In a recent statement, the mega beauty brand said: “Aaliyah is truly one in a million—an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all. "We join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the MAC Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018."

Aaliyah, known for being an innovator and risk-taker, continues to influence the worlds of fashion, beauty and music to this day as her legacy lives on.
