These Selena Fans Are Hoping To Help The World Remember Their Idol's Beauty. But It's Been A Bigger Challenge Than They Expected.

A beautiful legacy.

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez is also known as the "Queen of Tejano Music." 

She was a famous Mexican-American singer, songwriter and fashion designer who was tragically killed at the age of 23 in 1995 — right before her game-changing, English language crossover album was set for release. 

To honor her life and her beauty, her fans are now asking MAC Cosmetics to create a limited edition line of makeup named for their icon.

Considering the fact that there are actually hundreds of "Selena Makeup Tutorials" circling around YouTube right now, it's easy to see why her fans have chosen to pay homage to her passion for glamour. 

Here's a mock-up of their vision:

Before her death, Selena was the spokesmodel for lots of brands including Coca-Cola and Agree Shampoo. 


She even had her own perfume:

... and a fantastic sense of humor.

Honor Selena's beautiful memory by signing the petition here. It's a fitting tribute to a woman who made the world a more glamorous place, and was filled with both inner and outer beauty.
