Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant helps me do that. I’ve  ...

Beauty Bees: Makeup of the Day featuring Emani Lip Shine in Starstruck

This is my first Makeup of the Day post. I started learning about it as a practical art form in 2008 and have since done a lot of theatrical makeup for myself and others. I thought that sharing my makeup looks on the blog would be cool since I wear makeup anyway. I totally photoshopped my philtrum piercing scar out of these photos, I’m gonna not do that in the future. It’s part of my face. I figured I’d call myself out on it for the sake of keeping it real. For my makeup look I am wearing: Face: Rimmel Match Perfection liquid foundation in 202 Nude Julep Glow Pore  ...

Natural Beauty: My Grandma’s Avena to AVEENO Active Naturals

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with AVEENO and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are my own. I always looked up to my beautiful grandmothers when it came to beauty, but it was my dad’s mother, a first generation Chicana, who shared with me her all natural beauty secrets as well as the ones that were a little less than natural! One of these secrets included oats, which is a key ingredient in the new AVEENO Active Naturals products. Hispanic women have always trusted the advice they’ve received from their mothers and grandmothers, especially as it relates to  ...

Beauty Bees: Lavender Swirl Hair

Excuse my pouty face but I have lavender hair thanks to my super star stylist, Rachel Arvizu!! I had waited so long to have this – years ago, probably close to ten now, I saw an editorial in a magazine with a model who had frosty purple hair. I tore out the page and carried it with me for years. Because of my work situations, I was never able to do it (although I tried and failed a few years ago – my hair got too damaged in the process) until now. I am in love with it!   So I don’t know if you remember, but I originally had long-ish dark brown hair. It was my natural  ...

I have a trick to tell you about though and it’s  ...
