Despite the low temperatures (that we're unfortunately STILL experiencing), it's officially spring! Which means we don't have to wait for it to get warm to start wearing our favorite spring makeup trends. Yay! In fact, this season I'm looking to freshen up my face with a soft, pretty and polished look. I'm talking flushed cheeks, glowy skin and--of course--amped up eyes! So I went to Neutrogena's Hispanic Beauty Ambassador and professional makeup artist Elizabeth Ulloa for some tips. She's created a fresh, simple look that's not just perfect for spring but works all year round!
Buzzfeed found three women willing to be filmed having their makeup done by their boyfriends. Why? For poops and giggles I'm sure. And the results are indeed giggle-worthy. I'm not sure if these men received any makeup training before the filming, one of them was a theater major and seems to think that he knows how to do a cat eye because he knows cats. Maybe he was referring to Cats the musical. In the end I can tell you that he should not list "eyeliner application" as one of his special skills on his resume anytime soon.
I do believe you will enjoy seeing seeing these gentlemen in action and the finished results.
Say what you want about Kim Kardashian but there's no denying the girl is a gorgeous! In fact, she was spotted hitting up a Barry's Bootcamp class in L.A. on Wednesday sporting workout clothes and a bare face looking absolutely stunning. Who knew Kim looked this good without makeup?
Could someone please tell Adrienne Bailon to lay off the makeup a little bit? Every time I see her, she's decked out in heavy foundation, smoldering eye shadow, and faux lashes for days. Seriously, it's not cute! Don't get me wrong, I love Adrienne and I think she's naturally pretty. You have to see her bare-faced--she's gorgeous! Which is why I don't really understand why she always has to go overboard with the makeup. Maybe she doesn't even realize it? Maybe not, but I'm sure all her white collared shirts do!Continue Reading >
My jaw hit the floor this morning when I saw the ladies who host the TODAY show on TV without even a stitch of makeup on! I mean, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales are drop-dead gorgeous even without any makeup on, but it MUST have been hard for them to part with their intensive glam squad before hitting the airwaves. I don't really consider myself all that high maintenance (cough, cough) but honestly, I just don't think I could do it!
I don't know about you, but a bright shade of lipstick can really change my day around. I can't tell you how many times I've looked like a hot mess and classic red lipcolor came to the rescue. The truth is as annoying as applying, prepping, and reapplying lipstick can be, it's always worth it. It doesn't just make you look better, but it also affects you psychologically.Continue Reading >
Anyone who knows me well, knows I'm a total mascara junkie. If I had to roam the earth with only one makeup product it would be a lash lengthening (and of course thickening) mascara for sure. The crazy thing is, my lashes are naturally long and thick, but who wouldn't want the extra boost? Mascara is the ultimate eye-opener and brightener, plus it makes you look instantly glam in just a matter of seconds. It's for this reason that I'm practically falling off the edge of my seat just thinking about the new Sephora Collection Upside Down Mascara. Seriously, I'm dying to try it! This thing literally is built in with not one, but TWO brush wands. See, I knew you'd get excited too!Continue Reading >
I'll be the first to admit that a lot of the beauty looks from New York Fashion Week aren't exactly Latina-friendly, meaning they don't work for our skin tones or our textured hair. But to my surprise, there were actually a lot of wearable trends for Fall 2014 that look great on olive, tan, and brown complexions along with cute hairstyles that work just as well on curly or wavy hair as it would on straight strands. It's about time we see some runway looks that work for us, right?Continue Reading >
I like my makeup with staying power. I can't afford to experience a makeup meltdown half way through the day (or night), whether I'm at work or at a party. But I can't tell you how many times I've experienced eyeliner smudging, lip color fading, and even my foundation fading--it sucks! After just a few hours, I already look like I never applied anything on in the first place. Seriously, is there a lipstick out there that can survive a meal? Luckily, there is--check it out!Continue Reading >
If you were blessed with a medium or dark complexion, then you know that's it's not always easy finding makeup for your darker skin tone. In fact, it wasn't until after college that I really started buying makeup. Before that I would just line my eyes with eyeliner and add a few coats to my lashes--that was it! Finding a foundation that perfectly matched my tan/caramel-y skin tone seemed impossible and I didn't even know where to start when it came to lipsticks, eyeshadows, and blushes.
