Whether you love her, hate her or are completely indifferent to her assets, you have to admit that Kim Kardashian is beautiful. Most of the time we see her all glammed up and no doubt it takes a village of beauty minions to look that radiant, but I do love that on occasion, Kim lets us see her without makeup. Now, I've seen some makeup-free shots of Kim that make me want to stick a fork in my eye because she still looks nothing less than stunning, but on a recent trip to Barry's Boot Camp in Los Angeles she had on no makeup and dare I say, she almost looked like a regular person.
I'm about to show you the picture, were she has--gasp!--some under eye circles and less than perfect skin.
Chiquis Marín, Jenni Rivera's oldest daughter, doesn't really strike me as a low-maintenance type of girl. Picture after picture on her social media pages show the 29-year-old decked out in full makeup, perfectly blow dried hair and just in general always put together (whether it be rocking sky-high heels and jeans with a casual look or gowns for special events and presentations). Which is why when she posted a recent picture without a DROP of makeup, I was totally shocked. You have to see it, you'll never believe it's the same person!
We have an arsenal of beauty products we use to make ourselves look and feel gorgeous, but did you know that some of our favorite beauty items could contain ingredients that could do more harm than anything? Chemicals like formaldehyde and phthalates are just two of a slew of ingredients that be super dangerous and lead to irritation, infections, and even cancer. Ay, no!
I hardly ever wear makeup during the summertime. After all, who wants to walk around with layers of cakey foundation, blush and bronzer in sweltering temperatures. But I refuse to step out of my house without at least one coat of mascara. Unfortunately, mascara can be tricky. Let's face it, there's literally nothing more annoying than black streaks running down your face on a hot and humid day—not to mention embarrassing too!
One of the biggest problems most Latinas have is finding a foundation that actually matches their skin tone--and that's especially the case for those of us with medium or dark complexions, like Christina Milian (pictured here). Most beauty brands have five to 10 shades and--even worse!--sometimes just three! A fair, a medium and a dark. I find this insane! A majority of my friends have brown skin and not one of us share the same exact color!Continue Reading >
Jennifer Lopez may have recently broken up with her boy toy, Casper Smart, but she's still got it! No recent split is going to have her down. In fact she's been keeping pretty busy and looking better than ever. The 44-year-old mother of two posted some really cute photos of herself yesterday that made me do a double take. She's seen at the pool with her mamá, Guadalupe Lopez, without a single trace of makeup on. I'm talking no tinted moisturizer, no eyeliner and no lip gloss on. I had to emphasize that because a number of celebs out there like to share so-called "makeup-free" photos of themselves that you can obviously tell aren't as natural as they want us all to believe. But that's clearly not the case with J.Lo!
It took me years to finally warm up to faux lashes. The idea of sticking falsies on my already thick lashes seemed frightening to me. Not to mention, have you seen how drag queen-ish some women (including celebs) look with those things on? I want to enhance my makeup look not exaggerate it. But is there actually a way to make falsies look more natural like Eva Longoria's (pictured here)?Continue Reading >
Demi Lovato is showing her natural beauty to the world once again! The 21-year-old singer took to Twitter to share a post-nap selfie of her makeup-free face on Wednesday--and I gotta say, while we might be used to seeing celebs with a full face of cosmetics on, Lovato looks super cute and pretty without it!
In the photo, Lovato sits up in bed and stares sleepy-eyed into the camera. "I woke up like dis ... at 4 p.m.," she wrote, quoting a Beyonce song in the caption alongside the snapshot. Well, that's appropriate because as the same track says, she looks flawless!Continue Reading >
I'm not going to lie, as much as I love Christina Milian some of her makeup choices lately haven been sort of questionable. But I have to say, she really left me impressed at Nickelodeon's 27th Annual Kid's Choice Awards recently. The singer/actress and mom to 4-year-old daughter Violet, looked absolutely gorg wearing a purple lipstick that really complimented her warm skin tone and works perfect for spring. It's making me want to rush to the nearest drug store and buy every purple lipstick in stock. I LOVE it!Continue Reading >
I'm definitely not one of those girls who has a problem leaving their house without makeup. If anything I love giving my skin a break and a chance to breathe. But there are definitely a few occasions I'd never go bare-faced to. A Saturday night out, a day out with my suegra (you gotta stay on point when you're around the in-laws), a job interview and of course--my wedding day! So I was shocked when I heard about how one bride went BEYOND and did the absolutely unthinkable on her big day!Continue Reading >
