These pop girls need to watch drag queen music videos and take notes.
Raja, makeup artist extraordinaire and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3, sets the chola-look standard in the video for her new song, “Cholita.” Okay, the visuals in this masterpiece are Mona Lisa-esque. The lip-liner reminds me of the girls in high school with burnt orange, AKA Mexican blonde, crunchy, curly hair that always said “aye.” Who am I fooling, it reminds me of my older sister, Veronica, because she was one of those girls. She would go to the mall every weekend and take those blurry pictures in front of a Playboy Bunny background with one of her “ride-or-dies,” then pass them out on Monday at school.
The song itself is “mmmk,” but the visuals are what makes this the bible for chola-looks. The ladies sitting on Raja’s face that double as eyebrows make me want to shave mine off and do the same.
