MAC has responded to a petition urging the company to commemorate the late Mexican-American star.

1. This is Selena Quintanilla. Singer. Performer. Icon. And beautiful person.

2. Currently, there’s a Change.org petition to have MAC Cosmetics, which often features celebrityinspired makeup, dedicate a limited-edition collection to Selena.

3. The petition notes that such a collection would be particularly meaningful for Selena’s Latina fans:

4. Fans are also encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #SELENAQUINTANILLAforMAC.
