Adrienne Bailon's bold, berry lips at the Cosmopolitan For Latinas Fall Issue party got me really, REALLY excited for fall! After months of wearing summer-appropriate tangerine and pale pink lipsticks, I'm finally ready to switch up my look with some rich, dark shades. And believe me, this doesn't require breaking the bank!Continue Reading >
Let's be honest here. The beauty looks from New York Fashion Week can sometimes be WAY more weird than wearable. But I'm happy to report that this was not the case for Spring 2014. In fact, I saw a ton of gorgeous hair, makeup, and nail looks that would work for any Latina. Instead of crazy, over-the-top looks, this season was filled with pretty lip colors, bold eye makeup, and chic hairstyles that work for all skin tones and hair textures. Finally, runway looks for us!Continue Reading >
I'm SO excited that it's finally September, because now I can refresh my makeup looks for fall! Yay! As much as I love my tinted moisturizer and pretty pastel polishes, I'm definitely ready to switch things up. What I love about this season's trends is that they're all about channeling your edgier side. I'm talking bold and graphic styles mamitas! Who doesn't like that?Continue Reading >
I'm happy to report that this fall the cat-eye trend is back in full force! If you know me well, you know I don't ever leave my house without my perfectly intact bold wings. I love this look because it's timeless, sexy, and quite easy to master. I really can't think of a better way to bring out your eyes. Not convinced? Just leave one eye naked and you'll see the drastic difference!Continue Reading >
The stars were out last night and they weren't all sparkling in the sky, some of them were sparkling amongst us for all to see. Just take a look at dazzling Eva Longoria. She was shining at Premios Tu Mundo in Miami, Florida where she was honored with an "ALMA de tu Mundo" award.
The best thing about Eva shining her light on us mere mortals is that we can get the look too.Continue Reading >
If I could gain a wrinkle for every single time I've passed out with a full face of makeup on, I'd look like I'm 80. (In fact, one woman from the DailyMail tried going a whole month without washing off her makeup and looked a decade older!) Luckily I stopped the careless habit once I hit my mid-20s, right on time to prevent any serious (or at least permanent) damage from occurring. We've all been there, right? You're tired, it's late, and the LAST thing you want to do is go wash your face. But believe me, this one simple thing can make all the difference when it comes to your skin. Honestly, it makes me not want to ever slack in this department again--like ever!Continue Reading >
Let's face it—during the summertime it's pretty hard to avoid makeup melting and running down your face. While it's probably not the smartest idea to walk around in the heat with layers of caked on powder foundation, that shouldn't mean you have to go completely bare-faced either. And for those of you chicas that can't see yourselves hitting the playa or the pool without doing up your eyes, you're in luck!Continue Reading >
They say too much makeup can make you look years older and it's SO true. Caked on powders and liquid foundations many times just draw attention to those areas you actually want to hide (like fine lines and arrugas). With that said, there's a reason why women wear makeup in the first place right? Because when it's used correctly it can make you look pretty darn fabulous and, not to mention, well rested. So how can you use it to help turn back the clock?Continue Reading >
Washing your makeup brushes should always be a regular part of your beauty routine. Dirty makeup brushes can actually be hazardous to your health--they are full of dirt, makeup (obviously), oil, and gross bacteria that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Plus, if you don't clean your brushes regularly they can get damaged over time too.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I can easily go months without cleaning my makeup brushes. Gross, I know. But read on--cleaning your makeup brushes is not as hard as you think!Continue Reading >
