I've been dying to try out dark purple lips ever since I spotted Jessica Alba rocking the trend recently. This deep plum hue is HUGE this season and best part is that it's universally flattering! Let's face it: when it comes to lipstick, finding a one-color-fits all is nearly impossible, even with classic reds. But this gorgeous wine shade looks great on almost every skin tone--especially medium and dark ones! Finally a bold, seasonal trend that works perfect for us Latinas!Continue Reading >
I never EVER get tired of sporting red lips. I could be in pajamas with the worst hair day ever, and a swap of bright red lipstick makes me look instantly pretty. I'm convinced it's a Latina thing. We can hardly survive without red labios. Zoe Saldana sports them all the time thanks to her abuelita. "My grandma taught me every woman can pull off a red lip, you just have to find the right shade. Nature made red for us," she told Latina magazine. This is just one of the beauty trends signature to our Latina celebs that never go out of style!Continue Reading >
It might seem hard to believe, but as fabulous as our celebrities are, even they've had their fair share of bad hair and makeup moments. In fact, I've seen even so many of them hit the red carpet with outrageously crazy beauty looks that it almost makes me feel a little better about myself. Hey they can't get it right every time!Continue Reading >
I thought I heard it all when it came to strange beauty trends, but the new surgically implanted eyeball jewelry one has to be the weirdest fad ever. Lucy Luckayanko, a 25-year-old Russian woman, is actually the first person in New York to undergo the procedure which has already been done in Europe and Los Angeles. It's literally a platinum heart implanted in her eyeball. Now why in the world would someone want this? For Lucy, she's sees it as her "conversation maker." Seriously?Continue Reading >
When it comes to her hair, I don't think there's anything Rhianna wouldn't try. But even so, I was still sort of shocked to see this chica rocking a doobie wrap at the 2013 American Music Awards last night. YES a doobie! The girl really accepted her award for top R&B Female Artist with her strands wrapped in pins (fancy pearl ones of course). I'm not gonna lie, I've definitely left my house plenty of times with my hair in a doobie. What Latina hasn't? But this was beyond ridiculous!Continue Reading >
When it comes to fashion, Zoe Saldana never EVER disappoints. The Dominican and Puerto Rican star looked effortlessly chic at the 2013 American Music Awards last night in a one shoulder gown from Roland Mouret that featured delicate lace inserts throughout and a scalloped neckline. But what I really loved was Zoe's super shiny strands. Seriously, what is this girl's secret to always sporting gleaming hair?Continue Reading >
Last year we saw most of our favorite celebs walk the red-carpet with glamorous updos, but for the 14th Annual Latin Grammy Awards our stars showed up with bombshell blowouts sleeker than I've ever seen. The chic, low-fuss look added a fresh, modern edge to their glam gowns. The cool thing is they all sported a different version of the style!Continue Reading >
We all know by now that most of the photos we see of models and celebs in magazines are obviously photoshopped. In fact, this program has such magical retouching abilities, it can transform any woman into a thinner, prettier, more toned, and more tan version of herself. The mind-blowing "Body Evolution" video showed us how far you REALLY can go with airbrushing. But believe it or not, Photoshop isn't the only trick they're using out there to make these stars look perfect!Continue Reading >
Jennifer Lawrence is the latest celeb to go totally short with their hair--and I'm loving her spunky new pixie cut. It's totally my favorite short style of the year!
I thought Jennifer Aniston's new bob was chic, but this modern pixie is definitely cooler. It seems as if everyone in Hollywood is getting a major hair makeovers. First it was Miley Cyrus, then Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Pamela Anderson and now J.Law. Notice there's no Latina stars going super short. Shocker! I'm not going to lie, I'm definitely one of those Latinas that can't seem to let go of my long, flowy locks. Just the thought of chopping it all off gives me anxiety. But why is that?Continue Reading >
DUDE! I am not judging, I get that we all want to look young and beautiful, but some people go to EXTREME lengths. For example, an exfoliating treatment that involves tiny little eels! You get into a tub with these eels that are about the length of a pencil and super thin and they delicately nibble off the dead skin on your body.
It sounds like a horror film to me, but 56-year-old Zhang Nan from Hubei province in China decided that the treatment was for him and he willingly put his body in a tub full of eels. At first—no biggie, but then OUCH!!! He felt severe pain as one of the slippery little suckers burrowed its way into his penis!Continue Reading >
