James Charles Gives Rosa From TikTok A Makeover And The Glow Up Is Everything

Adam Martinez gifted the world Rosa on TikTok and the videos have become the needed humor right now. Every time you hear “Dude, come here” you know that Rosa is about to leave you in stitches. James Charles had Martinez on his YouTube channel for a makeover and it is a wonderful moment in Internet history.

Adam Martinez, a.k.a. Rosa, joined James Charles on his YouTube channel for a makeover.

The TikTok legend joined the YouTube beauty guru to chismear and try a new look on the iconic Rosa. While we know there is nothing wrong with her incredible makeup look, it was interesting to see Rosa all done up. We also got to learn a little bit about how Rosa came to be.

During the video, Martinez tells Charles about how he once ordered some lashes from a random lash company and what he got were huge eyelashes. Martinez immediately knew that he had to do something creative with them. He put them on and Rosa was born. Martinez also decided on the name Rosa because he wanted something that was not basic but basic.

People on social media were split on Martinez doing a video with Charles.

Charles fans were excited to see more of Rosa and learn about the iconic social media star. Rosa is the kind of Latina character we all know from our lives and the way Martinez plays the character is hilarious. We have all heard that one girl say, “Dude, come here.”

Martinez’s fans seemed less enthused to see Rosa sharing a screen with Charles.

Charles has created some controversial moments on social media. It seems that, to some people, the controversy was too much and have not forgiven him. The most stunning moment of controversy from Charles was his feud with Tati Westbrook that captured the attention of most people on social media.

Meanwhile, some fans just want to see Rosa grow and become the major Internet celeb she is destined to become.

There is nothing wrong with collabing with someone for content. Sure, there are some things that should be avoided because of the values they represent. However, collaborating with a beauty guru on YouTube seems pretty normal for these days.

It is something to celebrate for Martinez. He was famous on TikTok first and his star is starting to rise. Rosa is hilarious in the video and the fans are sharing their love for this kind of content in the YouTube comments.

Fans are already giving Martinez advice on what videos they want to see.

This Indigenous Tik Tok Star Gained a Massive Following By Showing Off the Beauty of Her Culture

November is National Native American Heritage Month, a month that is dedicated yearly to the recognition of the indigenous peoples and tribes who are native to North America.

The month is incredibly important because it serves to shine a spotlight on the many groups of people that have been historically oppressed and colonized by European settlers. And thanks to the accessibility of the internet, it is now easier than ever for educators to use social media to educate the world about indigenous cultures.

One of the most engaging and informative educators online is Tik Tok influencer Tia Wood, a singer, dancer and artist of the Plains Cree people of Canada. Tia Wood’s stunning and colorful videos spotlight her indigenous heritage and have gained her a massive following on Tik Tok.

Tia Wood gained internet fame when her Tik Tok video of her mother helping her dress in traditional Plains Cree garb went viral. The touching video shows Wood’s mother reciting the haunting poem ‘Brown Eyes’ by Nadia McGhee, while brushing her hair, braiding it, and helping Wood get dressed. The powerful verses tell a story of the pervasive nature of European beauty standards and the insidious effects they can have on a brown girl’s psyche.

“Her eyes are blue/Yours are brown,” the poem goes. “Hers represents the ocean/Yours represents the ground/You’ve always hated your eyes/And wished that they were blue/But your eyes have a tint of gold/So rare it must not be true.” And on it continues.

The performance itself is breathtaking. Wood begins the video looking forlorn, ostensibly unhappy with her appearance. But as Wood’s mother continues to help her daughter dress in her traditional clothing, Wood’s face brightens, her mood transforms. She sees the beauty of her own face, body, and culture in its own right.

The “Brown Eyes” Tik Tok video racked up over 6 million views and gave Wood more of a platform and a voice to educate her followers on indigenous culture, customs, and history.

On her Tik Tok account, Wood shows her 1.3 million followers the beauty of her people’s music, clothing, and art. She dances, she sings, she interprets Western music through an indigenous lens. She educates her followers on why cultural appropriation is offensive. She explains why the story of Pocahontas was not a princess fairy tale.

Indigenous influencers like Tia Wood are using the power of social media to challenge widely accepted European standards of beauty. We are lucky that we live in a time when learning about other people’s cultures is as easy as the click of a mouse.

Sistahs!! ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Is Coming Just In Time for Halloween And I Suggest We Form A Calming Circle

Disney

If you were around in the immediate years following the 1993 release of the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus you know how much power the movie has. The Disney film starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker gave just about every child watching thrills and chills and followed a trio of evil and hilarious witches who are accidentally raised from the dead by a teenage virgin on the night of Halloween.

Over the years Hocus Pocus has proven to be more than just a movie obsession but also a lifestyle. After all, what is Halloween if you haven’t binged the movie more than once during the month of October?

ColourPop knows the story and that’s likely why they’ve come up with a Hocus Pocus makeup collection that will haunt your dreams until you get your hands on it.

Get ready for some tricks for your at-home Halloween treats this year because ColourPop x Hocus Pocus is almost officially here.

The brand’s latest Halloween collection is inspired by the classic 1993 movie and launches at 10 AM PST on September 30. The limited-edition collection line is made up of false lashes, and an eyeshadow palette with 15 bronze hues. It also comes outfitted with a glitter creme gel eyeliner!

What’s more, the makeup kit comes complete with eyecatching packaging that serves as a shoutout to the three Sanderson sisters and the beloved noble black cat called Thackery Binx.

Perhaps the best part of it all is that the make-up kit includes products with names that heavily reference the best lines in the movie including “Amok! Amok! Amok” and “Gather Round Sisters.”

The new line also includes very Sanderson Sister-chic shades of red lipstick.

The best part? The collection is pretty dang cute AND affordable.

The palette retails at $22, the lipsticks go for $16 each, and at $130, the entire bundle is quite a steal!

Sure, you might be stuck at home this Halloween but there’s no doubt this new collection will enchant the little children in your lives and make you the ball of your COVID-friendly Halloween bash!
