I the "Chola" look, I will rock the dark brown eyeliner with Viva Glam lipstick any day of the week... I think it's fucking HOT!!! Both of those girls are Beautiful. I don't see why it's so laughable??? Some of the looks I see on here I don't think I could pull off, but I am not on Specktra to judge or make fun of someone else's style, I am here to be inspired by women and men with a different angle on the Make-Up...

Re: The "chola" look

I was just watching "Get Right' the other day and looking at the cholas. I like the look. I probably wouldn't wear it but different strokes. I was also laughing cuz Leah Remini was on Jay Leno talking about how she loved the chola look when she was a teenager. Anyway, here are some shots of Jennifer Lopez' chola look:

Re: The "chola" look

i didn't read through every last post, but when i did view some of the first posts initially a few days ago, i felt this was one of the least supportive threads that i've ever experienced on specktra. if this is what the original poster desired, then be nice or say nothing at all....

i just read some more posts...i'm glad bunnie_luv was able to see past some of the rude comments and still get something out this thread.... hope to see some fotd's soon!

Re: The "chola" look

i like a cleaned up chola look.. like a prettier version with perfect natural thin eyebrows, not drawn on and a neutral shimmery eyeshadow with the black liner winged lightly + the dark lipliner with lighter lipstick/gloss.. i think it looks so sexy

Re: The "chola" look

Ive been doin this for awhile. I think chola "look" is a different way than normal to do makeup & its beautiful to me when done right. All ya need is cat eye, thick usually works better. The more you do it the easier it is, i do it everyday. Shaving your brows just is too much upkeep for everyday so just get them thinner and fill them in but try to fill them in a little higher up in your brow so theyre higher & more arched. I like the covergirl brow & eye makers pencil cuz it goes on smooth but it is kind of light so go darker if your hair is dark. But it doesnt get caught in the hairs... Then for lips I used to line them all the time with a pinkish nude brown color and fill in with it too or wit a lighter color. That is kinda annoying in summer tho so gloss is cool too but matte is more common i think. dont wear blush and eyeshadow is usually to a minimum. if u still dunno what a chola looks like (there all different types of girls) look up surenos on myspace groups ... this wuz long but i think this look is misunderstood

Re: The "chola" look

I think your look is really pretty and nice for daily makeup. Some of the chola makeup is a bit too extreme, IMO, but I think what you do could be worn to work even.

Re: The "chola" look

I heard some girls really use sharpie markers to draw on their eyebrows....

you guys are also forgetting the tube of mascara they put on daily. FULL tube not a couple coats!

Re: The "chola" look

this is more like what we used to do back in the day..


"
But Chola style can be fierce - just ask Gwen Stefani, who incorporated elements of it at one time.

Growing up in East LA, I got to see the real thing and Cholas can pull off a strong, beautiful warrior style like no one else.

Fergie's style is influences a lot by the chola look too sometimes. both fashion and makeup wise.

girl, if you want your makeup like that, i say go for it!

i'm with cyn here, that look is a little different where i am than in those pictures, it's the same basic idea, just a little more defined i guess you could say. so i'd go with her description (mostly just because that's how most of the girls in my area do their makeup) but you can always tweak it to fit your pallette

most of the girls here also have drawn on beauty marks (holla!) so that's always an idea to add a little spice to the look
Ur so right love ya im 30 years old and i wore my makeup like that growing up i say 13 to 19 its all i new my friends,cousins,aunts pretty much every body around me did there makeup like that, i was a chola back in the days(not anymore) and to be honest i think i looked fierce. Not all of us did are makeup sloppy i did mine clean and my liner was 2 die for and still is,i credit my chola days 4 that i get complimates on my eyebrows and liner all the time now. And those pics are good guide 2 go by just ad u own style good luck girl.

Re: The "chola" look

Hi its me again let me tell u how i did my make up back in the days and give u an idea how 2 up date it. Of course i lined my eyebrows(and yes i took my off) and i use 2 use wet and wild but now i use mac spiked. I lined my eyes with liquid eyeliner all the ways around the eye just be clean and if course wing it out. And no blush just cuz me an my friends could never get the hang of it but use blush now its a must. I use 2 line my lips with a burgandy lipliner and just fill it in with the same pencil no real harsh lines 4 me no gloss either.But now of course gloss is the sexiest.Oh no eye shadow 4 me either just a bieghy matte color once in a while but now u can rock any color e/s good luck have fun and if u have any questions go ahead and ask me.

Re: The "chola" look

I totally remember this look from when I lived in South Texas during middle school and high school. I had a good friend who rocked this look out! She was super hot all the time. But, she didn't look crazy, it was always tasteful and neat. She never wore the black lipliner without lipstick, but I did know girls who did. She had this really great red lipstick that looked amazing!!! I always admired her look, and how great she always kept her face. Her eyebrows were always clean and neat, never TOO TOO thin. They were thin, but sculpted to fit her face. She never used sharpies. Her eyes were always fabulous and she used neutrals mostly, but made them super smoky. Her nails were probably the best part of her look though. She kept them ULTRA long and painted them various shades of red, ranging from a nice cherry red to almost black-red.

this article is interesting concerning Cholas and their culture: The World According to Wendy: The Glorification of the Chola


I really really wanna see your look!!! I think it will be fierce and fab!

Re: The "chola" look

I do the chola look all the time. But when I do it I do the full on "Imma beat your ass" look complete with the gelled hair, dark lipliner, crazy cat-eyes, lots of mascara, Dickies, Nike Cortez and a white tank top. Everything except the high drawn in eyebrows. I just can't do that to myself lol. I need to post a picture next time I do it.

You can get a toned-down kind of chola look by using very light brown e/s and doing a thick cat-eye. You can also try a really light brown lipliner. That won't look as harsh. You can just experiment and find what looks best on you. It might turn out really pretty.

Re: The "chola" look

I know this thread is old but I need to add to it its just calling my name!

Okay so I want to give you a few new ideas to try if your interested, I am a chola always have been always will be but I tend to take the subtle way out of it. I am VERY light skinned you can call me white which is where my name (AKA) came from. Lips I use Stone lip pencil with the new Creme d Nude creme sheen and pretty plush plushglass. My foundation is always pretty patted on I have thick eyebrows that are thinner in the front I just fill them in with Spike lip pencil.

Eye shadow wise I do it thick with a white to light matte highlight and always a color that will make your eye color POP! Vatos always notice your eyes first so you have to show them what ya got! For me I have Hazel eyes that are a mid green and All different variations of purple give them the extra boost! I always line my water line with Black Russian and matte it down with carbon. I dont do the winged eye liner because my left eye gets too moist in the outer corner.

Just my 2 cents! If you need pictures let me know!
