With the Latinx banishment accretion over 20 countries, “Hispanic” isn’t a one-size-fits-all term—especially aback it comes to adorableness and style. As Hispanic womxn, we’re arduous these narratives by all-embracing all aspects of our ability and allotment which ones are appropriate for us. This Hispanic Heritage Month, HelloGiggles will be demography a abysmal dive into the adorableness of our ability through Mi Cultura, Mi Belleza. We’ll be featuring essays about beard and identity, giving adorableness tips from our abuelitas, highlighting the altered appearance of the Afro-Latina community, and more.
When I was younger, one of my admired places in the apple was my grandmother’s vanity. As she fabricated arroz con pollo or watched her novelas, I’d acquisition myself active my fingers over every aroma bottle, hairbrush, and aerial adorableness artefact she had anxiously placed abutting to one addition in her bedroom. Anniversary account was adored to her—and that little bend of her home became adored to me.
For my Puerto Rican grandma, adorableness was alike with her culture. The ritual of bushing in her eyebrows with a black pencil and crimper her beard with beard rollers while dancing to Marc Anthony music fabricated her affix to the activity she already had in Puerto Rico. It fabricated her feel animate and youthful, alike aback she was aloof planning to break at home—and I’d generally watch this transformation in amazement.
Now at 31, I accept a bigger compassionate of why my grandmother and added Hispanic abuelitas above the apple so acerb affix to their cultures through beauty. Through attenuate yet allusive adorableness practices, they canyon their traditions assimilate their accouchement and their children’s accouchement to abide the birth of what it agency to be a able Hispanic womxn. This, in turn, allows us to affix with our roots in abstruse agency while accompanying adulatory the women who helped anatomy our confidence, outlooks on beauty, and relationships with ourselves.
To account these figures, I affiliated with six added Hispanic women from all altered cultures to apprentice about their abuelitas’ adorableness routines, the adorableness practices they acclimatized into their own, and the acquaint their abuelitas accomplished them on adorableness and self-confidence.
Naydeline Mejia: My accord with my abuelita is so balmy and playful. She doesn’t booty herself too seriously, and so she’s consistently reminding me to booty aggregate with a atom of salt. My mom can be actual austere as her primary babysitter and the arch of the household, so my abuelita and I adulation to antic about and badinage about all the things my mom is consistently accusation her about––every time she makes a asinine face about article my mom says, I can’t help, but laugh. It sounds mean, but it’s all in acceptable fun.
My abuelita’s angle on adorableness accept afflicted me tremendously. She doesn’t abrasion a lot of makeup, but whenever there’s a appropriate occasion, like a ancestors acquisition or party, you’ll consistently acquisition her antic a adventurous lip. That’s a adorableness ambush that my mom seems to accept adopted as well––she additionally rarely wears makeup, but aback she does, she consistently has her signature adventurous lip. I abandoned do not abrasion lipstick actual often, but aback I do, I adulation a adventurous red or abysmal purple––I assumption I am like my abuelita and mami in that regard.
Another adorableness access that I accept taken from my abuelita is her adulation for jewelry. We’re not a affluent family, but my abuelita will not be bent asleep cutting apparel adornment or as she calls it, fantasía. My abuela loves her gold adornment and wears her gold earrings and chaplet everywhere, all the time––even in the house. My grandmother’s adulation for gold has accomplished me the accent of adorning oneself. I accept yet to advance in a nice allotment of accurate gold jewelry, but I apperceive aback that day comes, I will abundance that allotment consistently and canyon it bottomward to my own accouchement one day.
NM: I can’t acquaint you what cast of lipstick my grandmother uses, but it’s apparently a lipstick she’s had for a brace of years now because the women in my ancestors do not like to bandy abroad architecture products; I am appealing abiding my mom has the aforementioned e.l.f delicate foundation she’s had for the accomplished 20 years.
As for her gold necklaces and earrings, my grandmother gets all of her adornment from the Dominican Republic. Whenever she takes a cruise to the island, which is about every year, you can apprehend her to appear aback with a new piece.
Jenna Brillhart, HelloGiggles
NM: On the day-to-day, I don’t abrasion annihilation on my aperture added than a analgesic or sometimes ablaze lip gloss, but I would be behindhand if I didn’t cull out the adventurous lip for a anniversary acquisition or banquet party. I additionally actually adulation adornment and feel actually naked if I don’t accept earrings on or some array of necklace. I can’t allow 100% gold jewelry, but I adulation a acceptable gold apricot allotment or any blue apparel jewelry. I accept these grape-shaped earrings that my abuela thinks are ridiculous, but blue adornment is how I accept to beautify myself and they are my admired at the moment.
NM: Don’t be abashed to be bold. Also, adorableness is beneath about what architecture you accept to abrasion and added about how you backpack yourself.
NM: As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has consistently declared in her abounding explanations as to why she wears her signature red lip and big hoops, these adorableness aspects are boundless in Latinx ability and are frequently adorned by able Latina women. For Latina women, a adventurous lip and big hoops represent ability and confidence. Whenever I abrasion a red lip and some adventurous earrings, I consistently feel like a bang-up b-word. There’s aloof article about this attending that represents ability and influence––from AOC to Sonia Sotomayor to Selena to Celia Cruz––which is why I anticipate it has been anesthetized bottomward from bearing to generation.

Location: Washington D.C.
Yanelle Cruz Bonilla: Ela (the appellation I gave her aback I was a toddler) and I were acutely close. I was aloft by my mother and my grandparents, so my accord with her was the best of both worlds because I had an abundantly admiring abuela and a admirable additional mother. She was consistently there to accept to me, accord me advice, antic about with me, address me aback needed, and additionally apostle for me whenever my mother would be upset. She was additionally the cement that kept me and my grandfathering together, and in abounding ways, she facilitated the appropriate band that I had with both of them growing up. My abuelos were consistently my absolute apple and I am consistently beholden to accept had such appropriate relationships with them.
Losing Ela was the affliction acquaintance of my life, but the accomplished three years afterwards her accept been a apricot adventure of advertent how abundant of her continues to alive aural me. She accomplished me so abounding activity acquaint and her angle on adorableness are no exception.
She believed in accepting a simple routine, she rarely wore abundant architecture but consistently had a signature lip color, which is absolutely article I’ve adopted in my own routine. She additionally emphasized the accent of skincare and alimentative one’s bark and I abstruse a lot of skincare tips from her. Article she was big on was cultivating adorableness from within, both by alimentative her anatomy (she consistently talked about the allowances of assertive items and consistently pushed me to eat assertive foods) and additionally by cultivating airs and advance afterwards relying on others to do so.
YCB: So abounding to describe! She was a big fan of beard oils and abrogation them on overnight. She believed this would addition your beard advance and attend your beard so it would be softer. She accomplished me how to do brief beard oil masks and afresh blanket my beard so that the oil would not alteration to my bedsheets.
She additionally accomplished me this ambush to align your beard brief by wrapping your beard about your arch with blockhead pins, because I went through a appearance area I was bedeviled with application a beard straightener and I was killing my hair. She additionally accomplished me agency to coil my beard afterwards calefaction and I’ll consistently be beholden she did, contrarily my beard would accept apparently collapsed off by now.
Ela admired a acceptable DIY adorableness trick, so she fabricated her own face masks with honey and oatmeal, and beard masks with avocado, and was consistently talking about the bloom allowances of assertive aliment items and how they could potentially be acclimated in one’s adorableness routine.
If her lipstick bankrupt or it seemed like it was fragile, she would abundance it in the fridge. She was assertive that “fixed” it and would additionally accompany out the color.
She was consistently advocating for the use of rose baptize and she’d use it in the morning and black as an added footfall in her routine. She consistently acclimated a moisturizing chrism to abolish her makeup, because she additionally placed a lot of accent in skincare, so already her architecture was off, she focused on afterward a skincare accepted that was hydrating and addressed her bark concerns.
YCB: I’ve fabricated rose baptize a abiding accoutrement in my accepted because [my grandmother] accomplished me how to use it. Oddly enough, the aroma makes me anticipate of her, so it’s not abandoned abundant for my skin, but it brings aback memories. I’m additionally bedeviled with skincare and I’d say that I abode added accent on that than makeup. My grandmother accomplished me one can accomplish a attractive attending afterwards accepting to amplify it, so I assets the abundant architecture looks for actual appropriate occasions.
I anticipate the abandoned adorableness ambush of chastening I did not accept is the DIY beauty, mainly because I accept beneath time to adapt my own masks, so I use store-bought face and beard masks. However, she accomplished me about capacity so aback purchasing masks, I angular adjoin capacity I can admit like oats, manuka honey, aloe, etc.
I accept I absitively to use these tricks in allotment out of habit, because I grew up watching my abuela do all these things, and already I was old abundant to partake we’d do abounding of them together. So it’s aloof article I’ve affiliated doing. Since her passing, continuing to do these feels alike added important because it is a way to abide to feel affiliated to her and the things she’s anesthetized bottomward to me, like her adorableness tricks, her cooking, and abounding of her outlooks on life.
YCB: I anticipate one of the capital things she accomplished me is to adulation myself and account my adorableness behindhand of what others say. She’d consistently say adorableness is subjective, so one person’s abrogating assessment was not a adamantine truth. Growing up in a ability that is not absolved from anti-Blackness, I struggled to adulation my amber bark and aphotic hair, because the adorableness ethics association acclaimed were so far from how I looked. I got alleged names in academy and was mocked because of my looks, so aplomb was a adopted abstraction for me.
I spent years aggravating to change myself, straightening my beard every day rather than all-embracing my bouncing hair, and I do affliction not acumen this earlier. However, my abuela accomplished me how to get through that and abound to adulation myself, and now I can say I absolutely do and I owe it all to her. Not abandoned was she consistently encouraging, but additionally she’d be honest aback she bare to be. She was not abashed to alarm me out aback I was too abundant in my head, and she fabricated me claiming those abrogating thoughts and feelings. Because of her, I cross the apple with confidence, and that’s impacted me in agency that extend above beauty. Activity assured in my bark and who I am has pushed me to accompany opportunities, booty bets on myself, and to commence on a adventure of self-discovery and airs that I abide to be on today. I would not be agreeable with myself and area I am if it wasn’t for my abuela, so her article and admonition were one of the greatest ability she larboard me.
