The Botox boob job is working wonders for women

breasts

The next time you go to the dermatologist, you'll be able to say, "Fill her up!" when it comes to your breasts. A new popular procedure known as the Botox boob job makes it easier for women to get fuller and less saggy breasts. Aging breasts no longer have to be a part of our vocabulary. Soon enough, Botox boobs will be used as frequently as selfies, and yes, even belfies. This may sound like a dream to some women, but it is really safe and effective?

Extreme plastic surgery transformations from China will shock you!

Asian

Transforming your face until you're almost unrecognizable appears to be growing more and more into a beauty trend in China. Drastic before and afters reveals a plastic surgery fascination in Asia that doesn't seem to be slowing down. This feels like the canceled reality show The Swan without the women actually being "ugly ducklings" being transformed. These women are heading to plastic surgeons for lighter skin, narrower faces and removal of their epicanthic folds.

11 Outrageous but trendy plastic surgeries

More and more women are opting to go under the knife to rid themselves of the pocket of fat located under their booties, otherwise known as a "banana roll."

I didn't even know that was a thing, much less that it had a specific nickname. Here I was, calling mine Tito all this time! I'm joking of course, because sometimes you just have to laugh at the ridiculous things ladies find to have sucked, cut, nipped and tucked on our bodies.

Model wears extreme faja for years to get a 16 inch waist

kelly

Holy corset, Batgirl! Fetish model and apparent masochist Kelly Lee Dekay has perhaps one of the tiniest waists I've ever seen on a human being. And that's really saying something. As a Latina, I grew up watching Thalia flaunt her practically ribless torso across the stage and small screen. But I have to admit, this chica's tiny waist makes Thalia's look almost normal. That's because, despite having some Kardashian-esque curves, the 27-year-old's waist is only 16 inches, all around. How is that even possible? Well, unlike Thalia and other celebs whom shall not be named, Dekay totally cops to the fact that her whittled middle isn't natural--not in the least. No, she just did it the really, really, reeeeeally ol' fashioned way.

10 Everyday beauty and style looks inspired by el Dia de los Muertos

PHOTOS

Is it weird that I'm kind of jealous of el Dia de los Muertos' Catrina's makeup skills? For a skeleton, the mujer has style. Well, at least the real life women who imitate her on the Day of the Dead do. I love how they let their imaginations run wild. Every year, their sugar skulls and Catrina masks become more over the top, and their trajes and hair are wilder and more beautiful. It's all so very beautiful, but also so very fleeting. It's too bad we can't always do our hair and makeup like La Catrina's every day of the year. Or can we?

EE Cream: The new mancha-fighting formula every Latina needs

First there were BB creams, then CC creams and yes, now there are EE creams! In fact, Estée Lauder just came out with their Estée Lauder Enlighten EE Even Effect Skintone Corrector ($40), which promises to fight manchas and address hyper pigmentation, a problem a lot of Latinas struggle with. So you could imagine how thrilled I was when I heard about this product. But does the EE cream actually work? Or is this just another fancy marketing gimmick?

It looks like JWoww underwent yet another mommy makeover since giving birth to her daughter Meilani (who is super adorable by the way) two months ago. Remember how she went honey blonde? Well this time she had more than just a dye job done. Not only did she return to her darker roots but apparently she also shaved the side of her head. Trust me--you're going to want to see this!

7 Latina beauty hacks that save time & money

PHOTOS

If YouTube existed when our mothers were growing up, I'm pretty sure most of them would have been successful beauty bloggers. Think about it. If your madre was anything like mine, chances are she never dreamed of spending her hard earned money on expensive beauty items from MAC or Sephora. 'Stas loca? No, our mothers--and their mothers before them--had a million beauty hacks up their sleeves, many of which required the use of cheapo, dollar store beauty products. And that's not even the best part! Aside from saving you time, money, and counter space, most of mami's beauty hacks produced better results than name brand items. Wow, I guess that means mami really does know best!
