Although R&B star Aaliyah is sadly no longer with us, she’s still inspiring the beauty industry in a major way.

On the eve of the 16th anniversary of her death, M.A.C announced on Instagram that they’re releasing an Aaliyah-inspired makeup collection. The super-talented artist, who was only 22 when she died in a plane crash, was said to be a huge fan of the cosmetic company.

“Aaliyah is truly one in a million—an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” MAC wrote on Instagram. “Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M.A.C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018. #AaliyahforMAC.”

The collab comes after thousands of Aaliyah fans signed a petition to get M.A.C to launch a limited edition line in her honour. The highly anticipated collection is set to launch summer 2018.

While we anxiously wait for #AaliyahforMAC to hit the stores, here are nine other things that are making us super nostalgic right now.
