*Fans of Aaliyah have started a petition in hopes that it will land the late singer her own MAC cosmetics line. Since it launched a week ago, the petition has garnered more than 1,000 of the desired 1,500 signatures.

According to the description on the Change.org site, supporters hope the makeup company will create a collection that will include “eye shadows, lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses, contour & highlight, beauty powder, false lashes, eyebrow pencils that represent and are inspired by Aaliyah.” It also states, “…we want MAC to be the first brand to reintroduce Aaliyah’s legacy to the world in a format that it has never been given before.”

California resident Jennifer Risinger launched the petition last month, saying:

“As a huge MAC fan and consumer of their permanent line and limited edition collections, we want MAC to be the first brand to reintroduce Aaliyah’s legacy to the world in a format that it has never been given before,” Risinger explained in the petition.”

Should the campaign, which is using the hashtag #AaliyahForMAC, stir interest with the company, an Aaliyah line could follow next year’s limited edition Selena Quintanilla collection, in honor of the fallen Latin star. So far, representatives for MAC have not commented on the Aaliyah petition request.

Missy Elliot consigns the Aaliyah make-up line request. Over the weekend, she retweeted the mock advertisement below featuring the singer. The pic was  initially shared by an Aaliyah fan page.

 

In related news, Aaliyah’s brother, music producer Rashad Haughton, will be providing the main music to Studio 4°C’s anime short “Red Ash –Magicicada.” The project is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.

Rashad wrote and co-directed Aaliyah’s hit music video “4 Page Letter”, and he wrote her hit song “Death of a Playa.” He handled the post production ADR recording of her major motion picture “Queen of the Damned” before becoming CEO of Aaliyah LLC/DB/Aaclypse in 2002.
