She revealed her ENTIRE skin and makeup routine, and it's all very relatable

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just somehow became even more relatable. AOC took to her Instagram to reveal a step-by-step guide to her skin-care and makeup regimen, and it doesn't involve only products we can't afford or false eyelashes (well, unless you have mastered the art, in which case, as Ocasio-Cortez states, "bless" ). And, after she just revealed her secret to keeping her press-on nails in perfect shape, we'd trust her on anything beauty-related.

If you were wondering, it takes just a few steps to look like a Congresswoman. Instead of calling out too many products, because she "[doesn't] want it to sound too product-placementy," Ocasio-Cortez gave us her three-step routine which keeps her skin glowing.

For her first step, AOC notes the power of a good double-cleanse—especially if you wear makeup. She says that she uses a face brush or towel "when I'm being good" to exfoliate her face as well, though she says that facial wipes "are a really good place to start" if you tend to fall asleep in your makeup. For her second step, she uses non-alcoholic toner and activates ("serums with active compounds"). Lastly, she says to find a moisturizer that works for your skin—"I find moisturizer to be one of the most personal steps bc everyone's skin is different and it's like finding jeans that fit"—and then using sunscreen on top of that.

When it comes to makeup, she says to keep it simple and "let your skin BREATHE." "If it's a hobby or creative outlet for you, then definitely incorporate double cleansing and use a face brush or makeup towel to totally clear your face as soon as you can in your day," she adds. She also notes that she uses a mix of high- and low- end products.

The most relatable part comes when Ocasio-Cortez applauds those who wear false eyelashes. "I have tried the eyelash thing and idk man I'm gonna poke my eye out one of these days," she says, saying that she ends up looking "ridiculous w/ them falling off." She ends with, "Bless y'all that can do that. I will keep trying."

And, even though she does usually rock a red lip, she doesn't feel obligated to wear makeup every day: "I also straight up don't wear makeup some days and everyone just has to deal with it." Mood.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
