Your skin repairs itself at time, so wearing thick and heavy makeup means more clogged pores and acne breakouts. We've all been guilty of breaking this cardinal makeup rule, like Kim Kardashian, but there are plenty of easy ways to repair your skin after you mistreat it. Check out some of our suggestions!Continue Reading >
Makeup lovers rejoice! Eva Mendes officially has her own makeup line. The Cuban beauty just signed on as the face and creative director of the drugstore cosmetic line Circa. The brand will be inspired by old Hollywood glam and will include a variety of pigments. She also wants to cater to "all types of ethnicities." I love this idea! We all know there could be more diverse products catering to all skin tones in the makeup department. Wait until you hear what Eva has to say about her new business venture and balancing motherhood!
I can't stress enough how much I HATE shopping for foundation. Buying mascara, eyeliner and shadow palettes are easy, but finding a makeup base that perfectly matches my skin tone is a real challenge. The hardest part for me has always been finding my undertones. Are they yellow, pink or golden? How can I even tell? And how do I know whether or not a foundation has hints of those warm colors? You see, it seems like it's not that easy to figure out!
Anyone that knows me well, knows I love myself some good lipstick. Take a peek into my purse and you've probably find at least six lipsticks tubes rolling around--it's a problem! But even I've had my fair share of lipstick blunders. I've had my lipstick fade or crack mid-day (so embarrassing!) and I've stained really nice blouses. Oh and like most women, I've broken fresh, newly opened lipstick--definitely the worst! So to make my life just a little bit easier, I did some browsing on Pinterest and found a ton of lipstick hacks I can' t believe I've been living without!
We're only a few days into the New Year, and Kylie Jenner is already raising more than a few eyebrows. Kim Kardashian's 17-year-old sister set tongues wagging this week when she posted a picture of herself sporting a rather inflated set of body parts yesterday--and I'm not talking about her lips. Ha! Kylie's infamously plumped pout now pales in comparison to her newer and much fuller rack.
Ever notice how well certain eyeshadow shades work with your eye color? I've always loved the way golden yellowish-browns make my hazel peepers pop. But I'm not going to lie, it took me what felt like forever to get this whole eyeshadow color thing right. I love myself a good eyeshadow palette. In fact, I probably have more than I'd ever need stashed up in my makeup trunks. The tricky part has always been knowing which palettes and shades to use to play up my eye color. Seriously, how do you know which one works best for you?
It's amazing the kind of things you could do with makeup. I've seen such drastic transformations where you could hardly recognize the person. But makeup artist and YouTube star Kandee Johnson takes her makeup skills to a whole other level. The girl can literally transform herself into celebrities, Disney characters--you name it! It's freaking mind-blowing!
I love a classic smoky eye just as much as the next chick, but blacks and charcoals could be a tad bit intense for holiday parties. A gorgeous bronze smoky eye doesn't just flatter my hazel eyes and caramel complexion, but also works for any occasion--whether it's an office bash or a night out on the town. I caught up with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez who shared her tips on how to nail this look yourself at home. I'm telling you, it's so perfect you're going to want to plan all your parties around it!
I own a ridiculous number of lipstick tubes. So many that I haven't even gone through half of them. There's just something so glamorous about being able to swipe a nice shade of lipstick across your lips. But whether you put on some every day (like I do) or just when you're out on a date or with the girls, there's a lot more to lipstick than just being pretty. I actually did a little research and was kind of baffled by some of the mind-blowing facts about this makeup bag staple. Pucker up and read on!
As a Latina with a honey-toned complexion, highlighters have always been an issue for me. My skin looks nice and radiant during the spring and summer seasons, but once the weather starts to dim, so does my sun-kissed glow. This are where illuminators and highlighters come in, right? But good luck finding one that doesn't look ashy on a tan, chica. Seriously, do highlighters for brown girls even exist?
