Desi Perkins's Selena Quintanilla Makeup Tutorial | Video

Desi Perkins Just Transformed Herself Into Selena, and We Can't Handle It

To celebrate the launch of the already-iconic MAC x Selena collection, Mexican-American beauty vlogger Desi Perkins created what she's calling "one of the most meaningful makeup videos I've ever done." And she's not kidding.

Desi's latest makeup transformation begins with the Queen of Tejano's signature logo and cuts a grainy interview with the star in which she describes how she wants to be remembered ā€” do you have your tissues ready? The video then shows a preview of Desi's stunningly accurate finished look, complete with a black wig, before she emotionally introduces the tutorial and why it means so much to her.

Press play above to watch Desi morph into Selena using products from the line, including the Techno Cumbia Blunt and Ven Conmigo Blush and Bronzer Compact ($29), Como La Flor Lipstick ($18), and Boot Black Liquid Eye Liner ($21). Once you've wiped away your tears, check out our Selena-inspired tutorial.
