Vogue has hosted its 'Beauty Secrets' series on YouTube for years now, showcasing tips from some of the biggest models, actors, musicians and more—however New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might just be the series' first political figure.
In the tutorial, Ocasio-Cortez leads viewers through her signature beauty routine—complete with the vivid red lip she often wears. She starts out by sharing her skincare routine, and speaks to the criticism she and other women in government have faced for their appearance. Throughout the tutorial, Ocasio-Cortez speaks to other current issues that Vogues' followers are likely to identify with, such as the "pink tax," pay discrepancies, and how patriarchal power structures continue to negatively impact society.
Ocasio-Cortez's tutorial provides an entertaining medium that enables viewers to not only learn from the tips she shares, but gain a deeper understanding of her political background and how she hopes to make positive change.
