Curly Q: My hair is naturally wavy/straight, but I want to glam up my look for the holidays with gorgeous curls.

Ah, youth. Don't you wish you could bottle it up and have it as an elixir that keeps you looking 21 for the rest of your life? In a perfect world, that would happen, but we live in the world of aging and eventually it catches up to us. Unless you're Eva Mendes who has apparently been keeping a huge anti-aging secret from us. It turns out she and other Hollywood leading ladies swear by the Facelift Diet to give them their youthful glow and wrinkle-free complexion.
The three-day diet created by Dr. Nicholas Perricone requires no surgery or fillers, but it does come at a cost. The meal plan is delivered to you in a basket and can cost you up to $130. Yeesh!Continue Reading >

Even so, I still manage to get my hair looking sleek and shiny. And no it's not because of good genes, it's all thanks to my overnight shine-boosting hair strategy!Continue Reading >
Curly Qs: I have dry curly hair, but an oily scalp. The problem is especially annoying during the winter time. What can I do to help treat both these issues?
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 >
Just because it's colder out doesn't give you an excuse to walk around with ashy skin and a super dry face. I get it though! My combination skin tends to act up on me during the winter months, leaving me flaky, scaly, ashy, and itchy from head to toe. And let's face it, naturally tan skin and achiness don't pair well together!Continue Reading >
I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of obsessed with Camila Alves' eyebrows. Actually I take that back--I'm REALLY obsessed with her eyebrows! Honestly, who wouldn't be? She probably has the best brows in Hollywood. They're long, thick, well-shaped, and they perfectly frame her big, beautiful eyes. They're so awesome I've been on a mission to make mine look just like hers. But I have to warn you, brows like these don't just happen overnight!Continue Reading >

I don't know why, but my feet get crazy dry during the wintertime. It's embarrassing! Even though I'm not rocking sandals or open-toe shoes this time of year, it still bugs me to have sore, cracked heels. Most of the foot creams out there only do so much. Within a couple of hours my heels are back to dry and cracked. That's why I always resort to my abuelita's petroleum jelly and almond oil trick. It works every time!Continue Reading >
