If YouTube existed when our mothers were growing up, I'm pretty sure most of them would have been successful beauty bloggers. Think about it. If your madre was anything like mine, chances are she never dreamed of spending her hard earned money on expensive beauty items from MAC or Sephora. 'Stas loca? No, our mothers--and their mothers before them--had a million beauty hacks up their sleeves, many of which required the use of cheapo, dollar store beauty products. And that's not even the best part! Aside from saving you time, money, and counter space, most of mami's beauty hacks produced better results than name brand items. Wow, I guess that means mami really does know best!
Chiquis Marín is often glammed up and in full makeup, but Jenni Rivera's eldest daughter recently snapped a no makeup selfie that is screaming, "I woke up like this." The Latina celeb also posted a natural shot earlier this summer, but this one is way more shocking. She definitely did not use a filter or photo editing tricks to enhance her beauty. Chiquis is looking all natural in this one and we doubt she cares one bit what the haters think…
I tend to expect a lot from foundation, which is I why I used to break the bank every time I bought a new one. A good formula should perfectly match your skin tone, give you natural-looking coverage, hide manchas and basically make you look flawless. But that doesn't necessarily mean it needs to cost you a ton either.
If I had to live the rest of my life with just one makeup product in my bag, I'd choose mascara. In fact, I hardly ever leave my house with bare lashes. Two coats of my favorite mascara opens up my eyes and instantly pulls my look together. Believe me, a little length can go a very LONG way! But which ones actually deliver luscious and glamorous results?
Jennifer "JWoww" Farley, a.k.a. Snooki's best friend and also new mama to baby girl Meilani, has been known to get pissed off at things written about her and to respond via social media. I remember that when she was pregnant, TMZ ran a "joke" post about her that was in really bad taste and referred to her as Lil' Kim. Well, JWoww wasn't having it so she posted a picture of her very pregnant self giving TMZ the finger. Flash forward to the present and JWoww is currently annoyed by all the talk that's she's gone overboard with the plastic surgery, so she posted a makeup free selfie on Instagram to let people see what she really looks like.
I have to say, she looks pretty darned good without makeup. Check it out!
If you know anything about me, then you know that I love to laugh. I just found a hashtag trend that has made me laugh so hard, I have to share the joy with you.

Alejandra Espinoza promised El gordo y la Flaca, that she'd go a day without wearing a drop of makeup and then show it off for all her fans to see. Well it looks like the former Mexican beauty queen and TV personality doesn't have a problem keeping her word. She recently posted a bare-faced selfie of herself to Instagram and I have to admit, she looks pretty amazing. So good in fact, I don't know why she even bothers wearing makeup at all. You have to check this out!Continue Reading >
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!
