Internet Trolls Questioned This Mexican Dad’s Masculinity For Letting His Daughter Glam Him

As much as the media wants to portray Latino dads (or Latino men in general) as machista, this right here proves how far from the truth that is. This makeup artist applied a full face on her dad as an innocent joke. What she took away from this went far deeper than what everyone saw on the surface.

17-year-old Gisela Villa has been practicing makeup application for two years, and she’s gotten REALLY good.

Did a tutorial on this look on my snapchat — let me know what you think ? giselavilla12

She says she learned almost everything from watching other artists on YouTube.

While some men criticize women for “wearing too much makeup,” Gisela’s dad, Lucio, has been her #1 fan.

“At first, the thought I was doing it just to do it, but as I started growing, he started supporting me a lot,” Gisela told mitú. “My dad is actually the one who takes me makeup shopping. He tells me ‘Oh that looks really nice or… maybe not that color.”

Dad goals, right?!

Seeing how her dad is so supportive, she wanted to see what his mustache would look like under fierce highlight and contour.

“I always wondered what he’d look like if he had makeup on because he has a big mustache. So I always thought to myself, ‘It’d be really funny if I did my makeup on him,’ but I never mentioned it to him.”

It wasn’t until boredom struck that she asked if he was down for a makeover. He gave in and said, “Okay – just this one time.” Because what dad doesn’t do things like this for baby girl?

“ I was super bored at home, about to cook dinner and I kind of just remembered I wanted to do my dad’s makeup. He had just gotten home from work and I asked him. He just looked at me without saying anything and I was SO EXCITED.”

Gisela grabbed all her tools, and as her dad watched TV — and in less than 40 minutes — she glammed him up with a full face of primer, foundation, eyeshadow, lashes, contour and highlight for *the gawds.*

“He was aware of what I was going to do because he had seen it on me so many times… Until I put fake eyelashes on him, he was like ‘I can’t open my eyes!’ He probably thought I wasn’t going to go that far, but I did.” ??

His reaction after looking in the mirror was pretty priceless…

“There was no mirror in front of him [during the application]. When I was done, he got up and looked at himself. I was laughing so hard – almost crying. He looked at me and said, ‘Oh, you’re so crazy,’ and he started laughing. He was looking at himself, probably thinking, ‘Is this really me?’ I thought his reaction would be different. I thought he was going to be like, ‘Oh that’s too much,’ but he started laughing.”

In fact, Gisela’s dad embraced it so much, he went to show off to his wife and kids running around the neighborhood.

“Once I was done, he went to show my mom and said, ‘Look at me, do I look beautiful now?’ My mom laughed, then he asked, ‘Can you give me a kiss?’ She said, ‘No! You’re wearing lipstick!’ She laughed because she was so surprised.”

“There were a few kids running around my neighborhood, and he walked outside for 20 minutes, and he was just standing there and all these little kids would pass and say, ‘Oh my god, he’s wearing makeup!’ They laughed and their reaction made my dad laugh. He wore it for at least 20 minutes, then was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to take this off.’ He had glitter everywhere.”

After Gisela posted pictures on Twitter, trolls came out and said he’d lost his masculinity… but they’re brushing off those haters.

“For every 10 people that commented, one would say things like, ‘Your dad just lost his masculinity for this.’ Or ‘Makeup shouldn’t be for guys. What has this world come to?’ I’ve never liked to bring attention to negativity, but this isn’t right.”

But Gisela’s dad has a newfound respect for women AND men who wear makeup. They both hope the virality of his makeover serves to change lives.

“If a guy wants to wear makeup, he should be able to wear makeup as much as any girl. Makeup comes off. There’s no rules to makeup,” she told mitú. Preach!

Oh, and as for who taught him how to pose like this…

“Haha, I did! When I wanted to take pictures of him… Every time I do my makeup I want to take pictures, of course. And he’s always telling me, ‘When will you stop taking pictures of yourself?’ And he sees how I do all these hand motions, and I pose this way or that way. Right before I was going to take the pictures he said, ‘Let me do it how you do it.’ He started doing the hand poses, so I guess he got it from me.”

Yep, There’s A Donald Trump Connection To ‘Suicide Squad’

This is Steven Mnuchin. Donald Trump just named him finance chair of his presidential campaign.

It is this man’s job to raise as much money as possible for Donald Trump and the Republican Party. Mnuchin recently told Bloomberg that his operation expects to raise $1 billion.

Mnuchin also happens to be one of the executive producers of “Suicide Squad,” DC Comics’s latest cinematic effort.

In other words, someone who is raising a lot of money so that Donald Trump can become president would financially benefit if “Suicide Squad” makes a lot of money.

If a film hopes to be successful at the box office, it needs to capture the Latino audience. Latinos go to the movies. A LOT.

“Hispanics are far and away the most important consumer at our cinemas,” National Association of Theatre Owners CEO John Fithian has said.

The people behind “Suicide Squad” know this. That’s why they send the film’s stars to appear on shows like Univision’s “Despierta America.”

To be clear, this isn’t meant to tell you that you shouldn’t see “Suicide Squad.” You’re grown-ass people capable of making your own choices.

You love superhero movies, which means that your mind is pretty much made up on this matter. And that’s OK. It doesn’t make you a bad person. You want to see Margot Robbie play Harley Quinn. You’re curious to see how Jared Leto does as the Joker, and how it compares to Heath Ledger’s and/or Jack Nicholson’s performances. You’re probably mildly annoyed about Diablo, the cholo character that *SPOILER ALERT* accidentally kills his wife and kid because he can’t control his anger.

But, at the end of the day, it doesn’t change the fact that someone who wants Donald Trump to be president will likely make money off of you.

This doesn’t mean that you paying money to go see “Suicide Squad” is the same as endorsing Donald Trump, nor does it mean that the Trump campaign will actually be getting your money. It’s just stating this very simple truth: Steven Mnuchin, who will raise millions and millions of dollars to try to elect a candidate who secured the Republican nomination by saying racist things, could make money if “Suicide Squad” does well at the box office.

Hopefully it’s worth it.
