Aaliyah-inspired MAC collection to hit stores soon

Late R&B singer and actress Aaliyah will be honored this summer with a collection of MAC Cosmetics inspired by her. The Brooklyn-born, Detroit-raised singer was killed in 2001 at the age of 22 after a plane she was in crashed in the Bahamas. “Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable force whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” said a post on MAC’s Instagram last year when the collection was announced. This week, the makeup giant confirmed on Twitter that the collection will be available June 20 online and June 21 in stores. Aaliyah’s music career, which spanned throughout the 1990s, is considered have redefined the R&B and pop sound of that decade. Besides being a multiplatinum artist, Aaliyah also was an actor, starring in 2000′s “Romeo Must Die,” and as Queen Akasha in the 2002 Anne Rice film “Queen of the Damned.”
