There is no denying iconic chola style has gone mainstream. From the makeup to the clothes and jewelry, this look is fun, flirty and one you have to try. So how do you pull off the tough glam look that chola chic has to offer if you are not actually a chola? Pues así…

The Eyes


Rock eyeliner that makes a bold statement. You want it to look like you drew it on with a Sharpie, but DON’T  actually draw it on with a Sharpie.

Chola eyeliner with Master Graphic

A liquid pen eyeliner pen, like Maybelline’s Eye Studio Master Graphic, will give you bold, sharp lines that stay put.

The Lips


A well-lined lip can look tough if you go darker with it or simply polished if you keep it in the same shade as your lipstick.

It can even give you the illusion of fuller lips.
