Queer Eye’s First Latina Client Who Opened Up About Not Speaking Spanish Starts New Skincare Routine

Netflix’s most recent season of “Queer Eye” gave us its first Latina client, and the episode made us cry seven different ways to Sunday. Deanna Muñoz is a Latina-American mother and founder of the Latino Arts Foundation. She felt like she was stuck between two worlds: of not being white enough for her suburb and not Mexican enough for her suegra. As Deanna learned to treat herself to higher-quality clothes and skincare than Ross and T.J. Maxx (no shade, I’m not there yet either), we saw her face light up.

Fans have taken to following @deanna.munoz_latinoarts on Instagram and are delighted to see her thriving post-Queer Eye. One of her most recent posts has sparked a discussion on what skincare routines work for other melanized Latinas.

Muñoz is swearing by Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm and finally gets what the fuss around skincare is about.

“First Friday! In case you’re heading out this evening I wanted to share a beauty skincare love that @jvn gave to me,” Muñoz captions her post. “I never took care of my skin (nope never) & it’s Bc I didn’t know what to use or how. This product Dr. Jart has been my go-to ever since the show. I use it alone or under Born This Way light foundation when I go out for the evening.”

For those of you wondering, Dr. Jart’s Beauty Balm sells for $39 at Sephora.

It’s advertised as a “cult-favorite all-in-one beauty balm perfects the complexion with a powerful anti-aging complex while shielding skin from UV damage.” The product comes in different tints for different skin tones, meaning it smooths out your complexion while protecting it with an SPF 45.

“Love love love….” writes Muñoz. “Is there any skincare that you use & recommend? Always looking to add to my collection ❤️”

Fans immediately started recommending their favorite products for their routine.

“Currently obsessed with the @sundayriley Vitamin C Rich hydration cream,” comments Lizzie Loves. “Major results in the 1 month of use.”

Of course, the “Aztec Healing Clay Mask” was recommended.

You can buy this oldie but goodie for just $8 at Target. The base ingredient of the product is calcium bentonite clay, which means you can also use it in a clay bath or a foot soak. One fan commented, “The Aztec healing clay mask is AMAZING! When on your face you feel it pulsate and afterwords your skins feels so clean and fresh! It’s really cheap too!”

Another fan thinks Muñoz’s “brown girl genes” already make her perfect… but also loves Too Faced’s Born This Way Serum.

“The born this way serum + the Pixi glow tonic are my go tos right now.” @amorycupcakes offered. “Your skin is amazing already, brown girl genessss ✨????????‍♀️”

The Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer comes in 35 different shades and is cruelty-free to boot. Find it at your local Sephora for just $29.

Someone else recommended talking to staff at Sephora for recommendations.

“For what it’s worth, I never would have guessed that you didn’t have a pretty serious skincare routine…” one Instagram user said. “You are gorgeous! Have you considered going into a Sephora and asking the staff there what they would recommend for you? I’ve always had good luck with that. Sephora can be SO. OVERWHELMING., so it’s helpful to engage the staff to narrow down choices. Just let them know how your skin behaves, what you are already using, and your target price point, and see what they come up with. They will usually give you samples when available so you can try it before you commit. I like the Sephoras at Town Center and Oak Park Mall (the freestanding store, not the one in JCPenney). Good luck beautiful!”

Others just wanted to send besitos.

“Hey Deanna, just watched your episode and wanna say hi from another Munoz from Brazil! U made me cry girl haha besos ????,” comments Livia Munhoz. Muñoz is welcoming all the bendiciones and even replied to Munhoz saying, “awww!! Hi all the way from KC!!! Thank you so much!!! ❤️”

What are your favorite products that light up that brown girl magic skin?

Fans Think This Photo Of Barbie Is Proof She’s An Out And Proud Lesbian

The fact that the early days of Barbie were not quite so inclusive to all of us comes as no surprise. The blonde, impossibly figured doll with a penchant for similar-looking friends is a far cry away from the Barbie of today who has friends of all shapes, races, sizes, sexual identities, and abilities. Even better, today’s Barbie crew includes dolls who give queer children a broader playgound for their imagination.

Recently, Barbie has added a new addition to her friend group whose bringing more power to her LGTBQ fans.

Social media has dubbed the LGBTQ positive Aimee Song doll Barbie‘s girlfriend.

Twitter’s latest excitement is about a theory that Barbie and Aimee Song are dating. Photos of Mattel’s doll Aimee Song doll show her wearing a “Love Wins” T-shirt that supports LGBTQ+ rights. The Mattel doll was inspired by fashion blogger Aimee Song and recently caught renewed attention in a viral post shared to Twitter.

The “Love Wins” photos are only now going viral but were actually released in November 2017.

The photos of Barbie and the Aimee doll were shared to Twitter last Monday by user @kissevermore and now has Twitter debating whether the two are dating.

The pictures of Barbie and Aimee show the two dolls eating avocado toast. petting a dog, and smiling at each other. The images have fans questioning when Barbie came out and how she managed to nail a hot girlfriend before they did.

Even REAL Aimee Song weighed in on the images to confirm the relationship.

“I am the girlfriend,” she tweeted with a photo of herself and the Aimee Song doll. 

While Mattel has yet to officially identify Barbie as a lesbian, the original Instagram posts related to the Love Wins Barbies are proof that she is at least an ally.

Confirmed or not, true or not, one of the best parts of Barbie is that she is meant to be whoever her fans want her to be.

Richard Ramirez, a.k.a. The Night Stalker, spent the summer of 1985 terrorizing Los Angeles. Ramirez murdered 13 people during his reign of terror in Southern California. Netflix’s new docuseries is exploring the crime by interviewing law enforcement and family of the victims.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial” killer is now streaming on Netflix.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is the latest Netflix docuseries diving into the true crimes that have shaped American society. Richard Ramirez is one of the most prolific serial killers of all time and single-handedly terrorized Los Angeles during the summer of 1985.

Ramirez fundamentally changed Los Angeles and the people who live there. The serial killer was an opportunistic killer. He would break into homes using unlocked doors and opened windows. Once inside, he would rape, murder, rob, and assault the people inside the home.

The documentary series explores just how Ramirez was able to keep law enforcement at bay for so long. The killer did not have a standard modus operandi. His victims ran the gamut of gender, age, and race. There was no indicator as to who could be next. He also rarely used the same weapon when killing his victims. Some people were stabbed to death while others were strangled and others still were bludgeoned.

While not the first telling of Ramirez’s story, it is the most terrifying account to date.

“Victims ranged in age from 6 to 82,” director Tiller Russell told PEOPLE. “Men, women, and children. The murder weapons were wildly different. There were guns, knives, hammers, and tire irons. There was this sort of feeling that whoever you were, that anybody could be a victim and anybody could be next.”

Family members of the various victims speak in the documentary series about learning of the horror committed to them. People remember grandparents and neighbors killed by Ramirez. All the while, police followed every lead to make sure they left no stone unturned.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is now streaming on Netflix.
