Remember that time when #Legend @patricia_field styled you in #VintageCouture and the one and only @officialdanilohair styled your hair into a sculpture for your very own @maccosmetics #PhotoShoot, where #JamesGager watched the entire filming from the sidelines and greeted you with a hug and a huge thank you when you wrapped #OnSet! PINCH ME I’M DREAMING! Thank you everyone for making a dream come true for this #NewYorkCityGirl. #MacCosmetics #MakeupArtist #Makeup #mua #instamakeup #instahair #PatriciaField #instafashion #DayOfTheDead #diadelosmuertos #HappyHalloween #HalloweenMakeup
* UPDATE #3 1:25 PM PST 11-01-2015: The rebeldes at Latino Rebels snagged the M-A-C video [in case it gets disappeared], embedded it via DropBox, and you can see it here.

Of course, everything ends up smashingly, because “product.” And the TMI — Adderall product placement, anyone?!
It’s hard to beat CUPQUAKE’s mysterious and alluring Dia de Los Muertos sugar skull calavera makeup video, which we first ran in 2012.
We still have two questions:
- What is she wearing?

Let’s define our terms: According to the Daily Texican, “naco,” not a nice word, is Mexican slang for a lower class, ignorant country bumpkin, and/or a derogatory term for an “Indio” or native.
“Naco art,” therefore, is the Mexican version of lowbrow “art” like Elvis paintings on velvet or sad clowns and/or big-eyed “Keene” people.
When in Vietnam, do what the Vietnamese do, and make Mexican Pizza. Get your bacon, chopsticks, and refried-frijoles-in-a-bag ready and you’re good to go! [Video by Ẩm thực cho mọi nhà.]
