Anyone with siblings will definitely relate to this video.
Manuel “Manny Mua” Gutierrez is known for his amazing makeup looks, enthusiastic personality and fun special guests. This time, instead of a fellow queer social media influencer or a fellow makeup artist, Gutierrez enlisted his younger brother Nick to do his makeup. Now, Manny didn’t expect his brother to make a whole new look out of thin air so he recreated one of Manny’s previous looks. Sure, the makeup part of the channel is the most important part but the real magic in this video is the exchange between Manny and Nick.
While Manny was gushing over how proud he was of his brother for the work he was doing, Nick was quick to throw the right amount of shade. Nick kept Manny laughing through the whole video. The greatest moment of brotherly love and rivalry came when Nick was doing Manny’s eyes. First, the eyeliner was a struggle, which it is for all beginning makeup artists. Not only was Nick a little bit off, he was terrifying Manny with the way he was hovering the eyeliner pen near the eye. But the most brutal bit of commentary from Nick came with the eyelashes. These two are peak siblings during this video and it’s magical.
Manny: “Don’t forget. We have to put mascara on the bottom lashes too.”
Nick: “There’s like six. Do I even bother?”
Manny: “That hurt my feelings, honestly. A little bit.”
But, everyone can agree that Nick totally nailed the lip portion of the look. Even Manny was over-the-moon impressed. Tbh, the bloopers at the end of the video are the real gold of this video.
It’s October, which just so happens to be my favorite month of the year. I mean, Halloween – hello! And with Halloween comes costumes and makeup.
And some people take Halloween makeup to the extreme. Case in point: this woman’s zombie makeup look was so realistic that when she arrived to a hospital for non-zombie health issues, doctors assumed it was real.
This zombie makeup look was so real it convinced actual medical staff she was in need of urgent surgery.
The woman, who lives in Detroit, apparently caused quite a bit of drama in an emergency room when she arrived to the hospital to be treated for a panic attack. However, when she arrived to the hospital she was still done up in her ultra-realistic zombie makeup. Her mouth and chin looked like it was in need of some serious surgery. So doctors did what they’re sworn to do – they prepped Jai Fears (the zombie makeup wearing woman) for immediate surgery and wheeled her off to the trauma ward.
The makeup, she claims, was mistaken for an actual medical emergency and she began being prepped to enter trauma.
“[They said] ‘Let’s get her back to trauma now,’ and ‘She’s probably going into shock, she’s not making any sense,’” Jai Fears, a back-up dancer who had undergone three hours of make-up work to create her grisly look, told Fox 2 Detroit.
Fears said she landed in Beaumont Royal Oak Hospital after suffering a panic attack while getting ready to do a photoshoot for Glam Gore. “It just shot up to my brain and it just caused like a really bad reaction,” she told Fox 2 Detroit.
But when she arrived, she didn’t expect to have to explain her appearance to hospital staffers.
When she arrived to the hospital, according to Fears, she figured the hospital would have to know that it was just makeup. In fact, she said in an interview “They have to know! So no, I did not say anything because I just assumed they could see that it was fake.”
Plus, when you’re suffering a panic attack, communication isn’t usually one of your strongest skills. It can be difficult to communicate even the most basic of subjects or even remember where you are or how you got there.
The hospital said that it could not comment on Fears’ case specifically, but did release a statement.
“The emergency room is not a place for fun and games,” a spokesperson told the news outlet. “They see many patients with severe medical issues where lives are at stake. Doctors need to be able to focus on those patients with true emergencies.”
Though few people questioned the very real condition of panic attacks, many found it hard to believe that she was able to take so many photos while supposedly suffering from one. Most of the photos she shared were obviously taken while in the hospital so many are accusing her, and the makeup company, of nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Moral of the story: if you end up in the hospital with gory makeup, let them know it’s just makeup!
The Latinidad is rich with uniquely delicious treats and snacks that have become a staple of our lives. De La Rosa marzipan is one of those yummy candies that have attained a cult-like following among Latinx folk. What’s not to love about the crumbly and delicate candy? It’s sweet and light and tastes like childhood memories.
However, for some of us, the De La Rosa candy is more than a casual treat — it’s an obsession that deserves to be celebrated. We found marzipan fans on Twitter and Instagram who have immortalized their love for this little dulce in creative and beautiful ways. Here are some of the incredible creations that do the tiny De La Rose candy proud.

That bold red against the brilliant yellow stirs deep feelings of nostalgia in us. The added bit of sparkle is a nice touch as well. We would totally rock these.
4. A De La Cutie.

¡Que chula! This chiquita is as sweet as the marzipan she is dressed like. Those chubby cheeks and curly hair — complete with a little De La Rosa barrette — make her look like a princess straight out of Candyland.
5. A permanent tribute.

There’s love and then there’s everlasting devotion. Tattoos are forever and so is this De La Rosa tattoo. We especially love the very appropriate Selena lyric at the bottom of the candy.
6. A marzipan beauty.

We want this dress! Instagram model Miriam brings a rockabilly vibe to this dress meant to mimic the recognizable candy. The cream-colored circle skirt is a perfect substitute for beloved marzipan.

Awwwww! We can’t get over how adorable this littlest bitty marzipan is. California-based Style Los Angeles created this sweet costume for this precious baby girl.
10. What every party needs.

A piñata is a staple at any good party so why not sweeten the deal with a De La Rosa-inspired one. What are the chances that there are oodles of smaller De La Rosa marzipan candies inside this one?

Why should the little ones be the only fans who get to dress up like this favorite Mexican dulce? This costume by @emo_extremo is an incredible undertaking and is definitely something that will win you first place at the next costume contest.
12. Mouse ears with a dash of marzipan.
We love a collab and linking De La Rosa Marzipan with our favorite mouse is a brilliant idea. Don’t get us wrong, we love those concha mouse ears too but these are a uniquely new take on the accessory.
13. Handle with care.

If you’re as fragile as our favorite marzipan, don’t be afraid to let others know to handle with care. This understated De La Rosa candy cosplay is the perfect way to get that message across.
