Becky G launches new makeup  collection.

Becky G keeps reinventing herself. This time she unveiled a palette of new colors from her makeup collection called Hola Chola. "There’s so much inspiration behind this collection for me!," wrote Becky G on Instagram.  "The biggest ones being my mom’s styles & influences that have been passed on to me and the boss ladies I’m surrounded by everyday. Inspiration straight from my mom’s closet in high school in the 90s and my older cousins who would dress me up like them in the early 2000s."


¡Estoy muy emocionada de anunciar que mi próxima colaboración con @colourpopcosmetics, “Hola Chola”, estará disponible este jueves 12/12 a las 10am PT! ☺ Esta colección es muy especial para mí. La mayor inspiración detrás son los estilos y influencias de mi madre que me han sido transmitidas a mí y a las jefas que me rodean todos los días. Inspiración directamente del armario de mi madre en la escuela secundaria en los años 90 y de mis primas mayores que me vestían como ellas a principios de la década de 2000 -- Gracias a mis amigas @iluvsarahii y @makeupshayla por ser parte de esto conmigo! ¡Mira mi historia para ver la colección completa! Bienvenido a #HolaChola -- #BeckyGxColourPop
