Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivers 90 second speech at DNC 2020

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shared the lipstick shade she wore for her appearance during the Democratic National Convention.

On Tuesday, the New York Democrat gave a virtual speech during which she nominated Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for president.

While many praised the congresswoman’s speech following the event, viewers also had questions about her lipstick choice, which paired perfectly with her purple dress.

“Can’t stop thinking about how AOC’s lipstick matched her top SO PERFECTLY,” one person tweeted.

Another said: “@AOC love you and all your work! Keep fighting the good fight! Also, what lipstick were you wearing last night? That dusky rose was awesome on you!”

“@AOC getting a LOT of eloquent and important words into her 60 seconds, all while wearing a lipstick colour I need to identify, which I mention, not to diminish her strength, but to expand the fullness of it,” someone else wrote.

One of the enquiries asking Ms Ocasio-Cortez for the lipstick brand and name prompted the 30-year-old to respond on Twitter, where she revealed she was wearing Tarte’s Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint in shade Envy, available for $24.

“I got you! It’s Tarte matte tint in Envy,” the congresswoman replied.

The response prompted praise on social media where fans of the politician applauded her for her relatability and for taking the time to answer the question.

This is not the first time Ms Ocasio-Cortez has offered insights into her beauty routine. In June 2018, she also shared the name of her recognisable red lipstick, explaining on Twitter that she uses Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid lipstick in shade Beso.

The following year, the congresswoman shared a photo of the makeup products she uses to do her own makeup with her Instagram followers, explaining at the time that she does “not have a glam team”.

“So, first and foremost, I do not have a glam team. I don’t have a hairstylist, I don’t have a makeup artist that I take on the road with me. I do my own makeup,” she said, according to Glamour. “So it’s all very DIY, especially if you’re a woman running for office. You just have to learn how to do your own makeup. And I did it with lots of YouTube tutorials.”
