Hot Cheetos Makeup Palette and Hot Cheetos Dust on Canvas
16" x 18"

Hot Cheetos are one of the best snacks and they have represented the Latine culture in The States, especially for Mexican Americans. 
In pop culture and social media, a certain look has been picked up as the "Hot Cheeto Girl". 
This is to make fun of or label Latinas and black women as excessive, hyper-feminine, from the hood, and feisty. We can proudly be like that but we are also so much more. 
I am using Hot Cheetos as an art medium to create images that show Latinas' authenticity. With this I am empowering the stereotype and honoring Latinas.
