Q: Hola, Mama Cubana. What are your thoughts about being stylish past 40? -Taylor
A: Hola, Taylorsita. Personally, my age ees somewhere between 20 and death. I have always believed dat style comes from weetheen. Ees not age-related. Also, de legs are de last theeng to go, so show dem. (My leetl daughter Gigi ees an expert een self-tanneeng her legs and dey look fabulous. Theenk about eet.)
Q: Hola, Mama Cubana. What's your position on eyebrows? Thick? Thin? Drawn on? Tattooed? Left alone? Seriously... -Yasmine
A: Hola, Yasminsita. I love dat question. Eyebrows are one of de most eemportant parts of de whole face. I told Gigi, “DON'T PLUCK DEM, COÑO.”
Deed she leesen?
Wheech ees why, today, she has, like, notheeng. Personally, I'm very fair. So I like Cleeneek brow powder for mine. But I deedn’t over-pluck, like my leetl daughter. I just was born dees way, joo know?
At de end of de days, what looks most beautiful ees natural but groomed. Das de goal.
Q: Hola, Mama Cubana. Re-apply lipstick in public? Okay or gauche? -Nicole
A: Hola, Nicolesita. Eet depends where joo are een terms of joor concern about what others theenk, as well as how good a brand joo can afford. Eef I'm een a deem restaurant weeth candlelight and I take out my Chanel, who's goeeng to object? And eef dey deed, eet would only be out of envy. Now *dat* is gauche.
But eef joor at Hooters and wheep out joor Wet'Wild frosted purple gloss, I would say *joo* are dwelleeng een de tacky zone of society.
Gracias, everybody! Dat was really fun. Keep joor questions comeeng een.
