We are less than 24 hours away from the biggest event in MAC history!! In partnership with Dillard’s Friday September 30, 2016 this is going to go down in history as the biggest event known to the beauty industry for Makeup Launches and premieres. I am here to give you all you need to know about the collection and event being held in Corpus Christi, Texas. I am so sad I will not be attending I had prior arrangements, I am missing an event of a lifetime. 😦 Being a Texas native I grew up on Selena she has been a beauty icon for the last two decades her legacy lives on. She is everything and more she was at the peek of her career who had taken pop culture by storm. A life taken way too soon, her iconic signature style still lives on today.
Who is Selena?
Selena is Known as the “Queen of Tejano Music”
Selena has always been one of my music icons, her beautiful presence is like no other. Born on April 16, 1971 in Lake Jackson, Texas, Selena Quintanilla made her recording debut in the ’80s, going on to become an award-winning recording artist in the Latin music scene with albums like Amor Prohibido and Selena Live. In 1995, she was murdered by the founder of her fan club. Her last album, Dreaming of You, was released posthumously in 1995. We will continue to celebrate her legacy as she lives on through all of us. I know her family is so proud and this is iconic special moment in time. I hope you guys get to learn more about the queen of Tejano. May her legacy live on and we will keep ‘dreaming of you.’
