BEAUTY: SEPTEMBER 16

#HolaQueens


Merry Independence day to all my Mexican people!

Mexican Independence Day

If you didn't know I was born in Mexico City, and today Septemeber 16
we celebrate our Independence day.

Growing up I remember my parents taking us to El Centro (historic center of Mexico, City) almost each year to celebrate independence day.
Now this is an actual holiday we celebrate and not 5 De Mayo! 


Tons, and tons of people gather at El Centro to celebrate our Independence day and El Grito De Dndependencia (cry of independence) which is something like

VIVA MEXICO!

Inspired by the day I wanted to create a look that will show my patriotic side as a Mexican chica born in Mexico City.


Here's the look that I came up with, enjoy!









Love Always,

BEAUTY: COLOURPOP x ILUVSARAHII: MAMACITA


#HolaQueens


If you don't know by now I have been into burgundy colors a lot since last fall, even during summer time.
I have purchased quite a few, well technically a lot of dark lipsticks like if I don't own at least one.

 When I purchase them, I usually feel a sense of regret but than I'm like no, they aren't all the same shade.



Iluvsarahii is one of my favorite make up beauty gurus.

When I found out she collaborated with Colourpop I was excited, and wanted to see the products she came out with.
She's a true make up maven, with quite a variety of make up looks.

When her collection launched, she had a great variety of colors, from nudes to dark colors.
Honestly I did not purchased any eye shadow pallets from her collection because I have a lot of colors similar in other make up palettes.



She came out with two palettes, one on the neutral side, and one that focused more on the deep purples and corals, which I am kind of scared to play with those colors.

I decided to just purchase the ultra matte lipstick in the color MAMACITA
As mentioned earlier, there has been something about deep dark burgundy lipstick colors, so I decided to just pick the Mamacita lipstick from her collection.

I honestly thought it was going to bee a bit more on the deep side, but it's more on the redish side. 


Skin color play it big when it comes to dark lipstick colors, so that might be one of the factors with me.


Here's a make up look I created using my MAMACITA ultra matte lipstick.

For the eyes you know most of the time I will keep it safe with my neutral colors.

For the face I decided to go with a little bit of blush and a bronzy bronzer.

and to kill the make up look, you know that for me a statement lip color is my thaaaang which Mamacita came into place to complete the look.



Did you guys get anything from her collection?
If so what was your favorite product from her collab?

I'd like to know!





Love Always,

BEAUTY: Make Up Look for your next Influencer Conference + Tips

#HolaQueens



As I'm getting ready to head over to Hispanicize Texas, in Houston Texas I decided to put together this make up look


I'm so excited that a big influencer conference/event is being held in Texas, as we all know, most of conferences like this always happen either in Los Angeles, Miami or New York.

I've been so lucky to attend a few conference in L.A, but I was more behind the scenes since I was volunteering, this time I will not be volunteering and it feels a little weird, because I like the craziness that goes on behind the scenes, the preparation and making sure everything is top notch for everyone to experience.


Influencers conferences, are so much fun and also such a huge shot of encouragement, not to mention how awesome it is to re-connect with everyone you've been following!



Also these type of conferences can be a bit stressful trying to figure out the perfect outfit, or make up look, and this is the reason why I decided to put together this make up look for you guys!

When it comes to Texas, we think about HEAT, yup it's true our summers are hell here in Texas!!
This is why I wanted to do a long lasting golden look, as mentioned before on my blog I'm a huge color lover but there's nothing like my neutral/gold make up looks.



Tips:
The number one tip I will give you for any type of event or conference is to always go with a make up look that you feel most confident, therefore don't try a new make up look if you haven't done it before.

Also you guys know, I have been dealing with acne for quite a while now, there are days when my skin wakes up better and others I just want to burst into tears.


This is why as I get close to an important event or conference I try my best to not upset my skin, so when I do have the event is not as bad. Ensure to be gentle with your skin 7-10 days prior to your event.

Do not use any type of acne mask 5 days prior to your even this will bring out all your impurities out days after.
Do use a moisturizing mask.



Typically when we think about these type of conferences, we want to go to the extreme to impress, but we forget it's an all day event, so make sure you feel comfortable and confident.
I know we are in the summer, but for me there's nothing like my neutrals, brown colors, lashes and a statement lip color, which is what i went for on this look.

Here's the look that I use for events or conferences like Hispanicize, I will see you all there and come say #HOLA






Also your jewelry always makes a huge difference as well, on the photo below I switched the earrings and it gave the look a bit more of pop.

for the lips, all I used was a pink pale lipstick and bronzer and it gave me this perfect gold lippie!




Love Always,

LIFESTYLE: LACE ROMPER

#HolaQueens

Man rompers might not be the best idea ever, but us chicas, we are totally loving the romper trend. 
Well I am!
Recently I've found my self purchasing quite a few rompers, I just love how you have to only worry about one piece of clothing, instead of trying to match several pieces.

This past weekend we took a road trip over to Austin.

Austin is one of the places that makes me like nature, it's something about that city that brings out the outdoor person in me, which if you guys know I've struggled to discover that outdoor person but I've gotten so much better.

We really didn't pack much, so Saturday we headed over to Target to purchase some undies for my daughter, as soon as I walked in I eyed this beautiful Lace Red Romper!
The moment I saw it, I visioned how I wanted to style it.


Here's how I styled this beautiful romper for dinner and movie night!



Although I used this outfit for a movie night and dinner, for some reason I picture this outfit at an outdoor weeding. 





Also my photo is featured on the Target Awesome shop Page!!!!!!

Here's the link below so you can check it out and purchase the romper, you will not regret it!




Love Always,

BEAUTY: YELLOW IS THE NEW BLACK

#HolaQueens



Well, HELLO there!!

It's been a while, like a really long while huh?!

Well I think I've voiced this out before but I have been in this funk since like March.
I've been pushing my self to get out of it but It hasn't worked all the way.

Summer is officially HERE!
I'm glad to announce that I have found my way back into the colorful side.


I got my nails done recently and while I was searching for a polish color I came across this OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana color and I instantly fell in love with it.

This color totally brought me back to a little bit of creativity.

I have been so into dark lip colors and make up, that I forgot how much I love color.
Color makes me happy, so I found my way back to the colorful side by putting together this make up look!



For this look I wanted the main focus to be the yellow color and the red lips, so I kept the eye make up more subtle.
My go to eye look has always been a combination of brownish and cream color on the lid, as the years have passed I've added black liner which still one of my biggest struggles, but I'm getting there yal!



For the face I decided to keep it simple and just add a little bit of Bronzer and I guess the simple part goes away when Highlight is involved huh?!! 





I added highlight to the bridge of my nose, the tip of my nose and my Cupid's bow.

Now this look main focus was the lips, I struggled trying to find the perfect lip color since I was already wearing bright yellow, and had bright nails, so I didn't know if I needed to keep it simple or go all the way out, and I guess I decided to go all the way out!



I reached for the RED color, the pants I was wearing that day had a red stripe and I figured red lips will be perfect for the look.

I really loved how this look came out, in my opinion was simple to create with the
 perfect pop of color!

Let me know If you like it and if you re create this look I'd like to know!




Love Always,
