Beauty Bag: P'Trique of '[Stuff] fashion girls say'

March 29, 2012 |  6:00 pm


You may have seen the various "[Stuff]-(insert noun here)-say" videos catching fire on the Internet recently. Here at All The Rage, we got an extra kick out of the "... fashion girls say" video with the one and only P'Trique, who, in a send-up of the whole genre of homemade style and beauty videos, famously proclaims:

"Doing like an American Beauty on a yacht but tribal, with a fishtail braid."

"I think I'm ready for bangs."


P'Trique lets us in on favorite beauty bag items in this all-new video, made especially for All The Rage. And a few secrets of her beauty regimen are revealed too. Among our favorites:

When I need a little extra moisturizer in the dry winter months, I kick it up a notch with Crisco. It's best to apply directly to your legs right after you get out of the shower to lock in as much moisture as possible.

My great grandmother Trique passed down this homemade highlight cream recipe down from the old country. I know it's clunky but I can't live without it: grind one part chalk and and two parts vinegar into a paste in your mortar and pestle. I brush it over the apples of my cheeks and on my third eye.

Tresemme Tres Two Hairspray. I spray my hair and then (here's a little trick) my face to hold the makeup in place. Set it and forget it!

But enough. Watch the video and see if you laugh as much as we did. Especially when P'trique starts layering perfume.
