De La Rosa Eye Makeup Is The Latest Trend On Social Media And They’re Beautiful

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. 

1. A certifiable snack.

Los Angeles based makeup artist Melissa Isabel has an Instagram page full of dazzling eye makeup designs. From sarape-inspired makeup to prism and glitter covered looks, the Mexicana delivers gorgeous and delicate art pieces. In honor of the famous Mexican marzipan, Melissa Isabel created this lovely and detailed eye makeup look that is almost as delicate as the real thing.

2. A sweet work of art.

California-based Face Painting by Tiffany has had some odd requests when creating face painting masterpieces and she tagged this is one of them. Although, anyone who has eaten a De La Rosa marzipan should totally understand why this person wanted a replica of the sweet on their face.

3. Marzipan nails.

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.

7. A bit of his and her’s dulce.

NicNikNicko, a Latinx-owned shop located in El Paso, Texas, makes all kinds of things inspired by Mexican culture. In particular, they offer these De La Rosa tees. Get one for you and your bae the next time you feel like twinning.

8. Bedazzled and bold.

This gorgeous eye makeup piece is nothing short of breathtaking. Created by makeup artist DK Vanity, this look has the kind of detailed brushwork that this makeup artist is known for. The crystals give it an extra bit of well-deserved bling.

9. The littlest rose.

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?

11. An elaborate cosplay.

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. 

Instagram /@littlebigk

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.

Instagram / @mgv25

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.

14. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Instagram / @rxchmua

Understated and finely detailed, this De La Rosa eye makeup look was created by makeup enthusiast and Salt Lake City-based Latina, Rachel. We love the simple and clean look of her creation.

15. French macarons get a Mexican makeover.

Conchas, De La Rosa candies and paleta payaso, oh my! Made by California-based @geesmacarons, these macarons impersonate some of our favorite sweets and look simple delicious while doing so.

Adam Ray Okay Is Launching A New Clothing Line

@adamrayokay

The time is finally here chicas.

Adam Ray Okay, the voice and face behind the iconic Instagram character named Rosa, has officially announced that they’re launching a clothing and merch line! That’s right, and you better believe the upcoming line will come with a whole lot of sass that will make the butterflies in your stomach go awfff.

In a post to fans on Instagram, Okay shared the big news.

“I’M SO EXCITED TO FINALLY SHARE THIS WITH YOU ALL. My new collection is dropping 05/21/2020 at adamrayokay.co!!! I’m so happy I was able to include 2 of my best friends that helped create the Rosa Cinematic Universe (RCU) in this with me. I want ALL of you to experience a little bit of Rosa when wearing these pieces head to my IG stories to find out how you can win a full set of merch when we launch! a portion of the proceeds will be going to those currently being affected by COVID-19,” the TikTok and Instagram star wrote in an Instagram post.

Okay announced that their new line is part of their new “Rosa Cinematic Universe (RCU)” which looks to be aiming to sell a full set of merch. What’s more, for every item sold a percentage of the proceeds will go to those currently being affected by COVID-19.

As of now, it looks like the site that will sell Okay’s items is not quite yet up and running.

The site Adamrayokay.co currently says that the site is “opening soon” but you CAN sign up with your email to find out when it will launch. The Instagram and TikTok user AdamRayOkay shot to fame late last year when the character they created named “Rosa” captivated viewers with her playful laugh and chismosa ways.

So far, Okay (as Rosa) has wrangled about 1.6 million followers on Instagram and nailed some amazing publicity.

“I’m just trying to stay positive [and] I want to make other people feel positive,” 20-year-old Adam Ray Okay told Paper. “So I’m just trying to put as much content on there as possible, on the internet. Just because right now both the internet and the actual real world are in a really dark place. So yeah, I’m just trying to stay positive.

On what inspired them to create Rosa, Okay explained she was easy to come up with because everyone can relate to her.

Paper Magazine / Instagram

In late March, Okay was featured in a magazine spread published by Paper Magazine. Just weeks before, Okay made her debut on Fenty Beauty.

“I had downloaded the TikTok app and I was just scrolling, doing my thing. I wasn’t really thinking of making my own content. And then I just got inspired by myself, my childhood growing up and, like you said, everybody knows this Rosa character and I felt that she had been forgotten about… So once I brought her back, everybody was just so familiar with her and that’s why I felt she did really well,” Okay told Paper in the interview with Paper magazine. “She’s everywhere. So, even if you didn’t grow up with somebody like her, you know how she is. She’s predictable in an unpredictable way. She’s just so familiar… she is part of everybody.”

Cardi B Waxed Her Bikini Line With Veet And Shared It On Instagram

Cardi B Waxed Her Bikini Line With Veet And Shared It On Instagram

It’s tough times everywhere. And by everywhere I mean everywhere.

On top of everything, the current pandemic has kept so many of us away from our regular beauty treatments which has meant that for months so many of us have had to do without the very personal waxes and hair removal prosses that we all invest in so religiously. Cardi B knows this truth and opted to embark into the world of DIY hair removal. And fortunately for us, she documented the whole process.

Recently the rapper shared a clip of herself doing a WFH AKA a wax from home and things got wild.

“Guys, wish me fuckin’ luck,” Cardi asked users in the post as she showed off a bottle of Veet 3 in 1 Gel Cream. “I hope I don’t burn my pussy off.”

Anyone whose done a wax from home knows that the experience is never very pretty and for Cardi, it wasn’t much different. The rapper documented the process for her Instagram stories and revealed that she didn’t get very far in the process.

To follow up, she tried Veet, a hair removal cream that is supposed to painlessly dissolve the hair shaft, as opposed to yanking it out.

And it looks like things got along pretty smoothly. Cardi B called the experience “a positive thing” that she discovered thanks to quarantine. In fact, she went as far as to describe the process as “a positive thing” she discovered in quarantine.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with growing out your hair and letting it be free, no matter where your sprouts are located. BUT if you’re like me, you might not feel quite so comfortable and are likely desperately wishing you hadn’t taken your easy access to wax salons for granted. So, how to deal?

We scoured Instagram and Youtube for the best at-home wax kits and tips for Brazilians. Check them out below!

Get a good exfoliator.

GLOSSIER.COM

According to P&G’s site Reward me, exfoliating helps soften body hair and opens up hair follicles. Doing this before a wax will make the process easier and less painful.

Plan for the pain.

People don’t cringe at the sight of Steve Carrel getting a wax in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” for nothing. Waxing HURTS. But the process can be made a bit more pleasant if you take a painkiller like Alieve half an hour before waxing and if you apply a numbing cream to the area you want to wax. And don’t be silly by trying to wax during or a few days before your period!

Don’t let yourself sweat.

Make sure you keep the area dry and clean during removal. Do so by avoiding creams and moisturizers and instead apply baby powder. The powder will make the removal process all the easier once your done and have strings of wax left over.

Sweetly Bare Sugaring Hair Removal Kit

ETSY.COM

One of the top reviewed sugaring kits on Etsy.

“At home sugaring success! I would have never done this at home if it wasn’t for COVID. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever need to pay a salon again! This is a quality product!” – Etsy review.

BrownSugarShop Body Sugaring Paste

This news my first time sugaring ever (I’ve brevet waxes either) all things considered I think it went well. I definitely think next time I’m going to leave the sugar I’m not using in the fridge to help it stay stiffer longer when I use a new piece.” – Etsy reviewer.

And there you have it. Now, let’s not fool ourselves, waxing on your own will likely be way less pleasant and much more difficult than it is at a salon, but it is possible! Hang in there, Sis.
