For Latinas with medium or dark skin, one of the hardest beauty products to shop for is concealer. I'm talking even harder than foundation. Unlike foundation, concealer shouldn't perfectly match your skin tone. You need it to be just one or two shades lighter in order to properly conceal dark spots, circles, manchas, or hyperpigmentation. But finding that perfect color can be a serious challenge. So what are the best brands and formulas you ask?
Just when I thought I've seen every kind of maternity photo shoot out there, photographer Adam Opris went ahead and raised the bar. The Miami-based photographer is taking prenatal shoots where many have never gone before: under water! That's right. Pregnant women are posing underwater for Opris' new series of mermaid inspired maternity photos. My gosh! You really have to see the photos to believe them. They are truly awe-inspiring.
Ready or not, Halloween is only a few days away and who doesn't like dressing up? I sure as hell do! What I don't like is how people use this holiday as an excuse to either look slutty or be culturally and racially offensive. Remember that year Rihanna dressed up like a gangster girl/ Mexican Chola? Seriously, who told her that was okay? Listen, I have a sense of humor and I enjoy a good chiste just as much as the next chica, but that doesn't mean I have to tolerate those offensive "Latina" costumes I've been seeing in costume stores this year. And you shouldn't have to either!
One woman super unpleasant account of how it felt to have sex with a dry vagina recently went viral, and for good reason. She described it as scraping your knee on pavement, but on your vagina. She wound up literally ripping her vagina during sex, but hey, at least she survived to tell the story. There is a real lesson for all of us ladies here, but I'll get to that in a second.
Nowadays, it seems like there is a new nude celebrity photo scandal every week! Between Kim Kardashian, Maite Perroni and Rihanna, all of these stars have fallen victim to having explicit photos leaked without their consent. Well, whether they intended for the racy photos to leak is subjective. We all know plenty of these stars actually become more famous once a scandal like this hits their resume.
There's no place like home, and no one knows that better than Jennifer Lopez. The "Booty" singer just dropped a cool 22 million dollars on a new apartment in her hometown of New York City, and let me tell you, it was worth every single penny. J.Lo will now be living the highlife in one of only four apartments located in the same exclusive prewar Whitman building where Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon have set down roots. Described as a "luxury fortress" by celebrity real estate broker, the luxury penthouse apartment boasts round the clock security, as well as its own gym and private elevators. And those are just the amenities. Wait until you hear about (and SEE) what the inside of her new abode has to offer. It is absolutely EVERYTHING you would expect the diva would want in a New York City pad.
I'm always so impressed by moms who are able to bounce back shortly after pregnancy. How the heck did they lose that post-partum belly so fast? Sure, they followed a healthy diet before they gave birth and of course they started working out afterwards, but that's usually not all. In fact, most chicas (Latinas especially) credit fajas to help them slim down their midsection and apparently they really work!
The words that people are using to describe Oscar de la Renta who passed away at 82 years old on Monday evening speak volumes of the respect and admiration he has commanded in the fashion industry for half a century. It's like we can't find enough flattering words to describe the essence of this elegant man who dressed women in a way that showed how much he appreciated and respected feminine beauty, elegance and strength. Whether you call him the "sultan of suave," the king of fashion, or the proud son of the Dominican Republic, we've lost an icon and we want to pay tribute.
I'll never forget the first time I tried press-on nails. I was probably 12 or 13 and my mom was finally allowing me to get manicures while my friends got to experiment with tips and acrylics. I knew there was no chance in hell my Dominican mami was going to be okay with me sporting long, fake nails with funky designs on them. I'd never hear the end of it about how they'd ruin my actual nails and prevent them from growing. So one day I took a trip to my local pharmacy (behind mami's back of course) and bought myself my first pack of press-on French nails. It was a total nightmare and I looked like a complete loca!
