SpoiledLatina featured in Latina Magazine

SpoiledLatina featured in Latina Magazine
Honestly, don't know what to write right now. I am speechless, appreciative, thankful and honored to be featured in Latina Magazine, October issue. As a little girl growing up, I had dreams and goals and it is such a good feeling when you are recognized by the very magazine that I have read for years. Awesome feeling...

As I mentioned in a previous post, Eva Longoria graces the cover but ya girl (Me) is featured in page 32 of the same magazine!  One of my all time favorite eye make up applications is the cat eye. 
I love a thin cat eye to keep it classy and sexy but I also love a thick cat eye
 a la Amy Winehouse. 

My Latina style:

I just started using the Benefit push up liner and I love it! Must haves for the fall or if you're like me, all year long. 

Below are some of my past cat eye looks....

Anthony was about 3 months here... but my eyes!

Lisa Pelayo on the eyes
thinly lined, keeping it sexy
This was for an ad I did a few years ago.

MAC Lipstick and #OOTD!

Monday, April 7, 2014

Hey Spoiled One's!
It's the start of a new week, can y'all believe we are already in the second week of April 2014?!
It seems like time is just flying by, but nonetheless a new day is ALWAYS a blessing.
This weekend I attended one of my friend's philanthropy event for her Spirit Group, and the dress code was dressy casual. The weather was nice, and I had a new romper in my closet that I hadn't worn yet because the right occasion just didn't seem to come by. 
One of the spring fashion trends we shared with y'all was the floral pattern, and this romper has a floral mesh lining at the top, so it was the perfect occasion to wear it! Although it is black, which is not a big spring color, I must share with y'all that black is my favorite color so no matter what season it is, I will wear BLACK.
I paired the romper with a pair of black sandals, so I knew I had to add a pop of color somehow.
I had the perfect pop of color at my hands reach; in my makeup bag.

Praise The Makeup and the Natural Look

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

 I know, as a girl, I have felt self-conscious before for wearing makeup almost every day.
A lot of girls feel like if they wear makeup everyday, they are hiding themselves.
We all admire the girls who always wear makeup AND the girls who can pull off the “natural” look.

Neither one is better or less than the other.
They are just at different points in their day, week, career, etc.
So if you have a hectic schedule, a dab of concealer, a pop of mascara, a dash of blush and lip gloss can go a VERY long way to hide those long nights of work or studying.
The way we present ourselves every day says a lot about who we are.
You never know who you’re going to meet at work, school, or simply at a coffee shop. But always know how to prepare accordingly for each specific occasion.

Houston we have a Drybar!

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Houston we have a Drybar!
So excited to find out that Houston will be launching a Drybar  on September 13, 2013 in Uptown Park. 

With Drybar's in New York, LA, San Francisco, Atlanta and Dallas it's about time the 4th largest city in the U.S gets its very own. 

Founded by longtime stylist Alli Webb, Drybar has become a regular stop for celebs such as Cindy Crawford, Emma Roberts, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zooey Deschanel, Rose McGowan, Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Garner, Maria Shriver and Nicky Hilton.

Drybar Houston will provide flawless blowouts at a flat price of $35, regardless of hair length or thickness (wash included!). 

Drybar’s style list reads like your favorite cocktail menu:

the Cosmopolitan (lots of loosecurls), the Straight Up (simple and straight), the Southern Comfort (big hair with volume), the Mai Tai (messy and beachy), the Manhattan (sleek and smooth) and for the little ladies, the Shirley Temple at $24.

At the core of that experience is Drybar’s top-of-the-line customer service and obsessive attention to every last detail. The Houston shop, located at 1141-3 Uptown Park Blvd., will feature Drybar’s signature look, including custom Italian chairs, tufted fabric walls, marble bar with built-in iPhone dockings stations, and flat screens quietly featuring your favorite chick flicks.

Drybar recently added some heavy hitters to its board with the addition of Paul Pressler, former CEO of Gap Inc. and a president at The Walt Disney Company, and Janet Gurwitch, founder and former CEO of Laura Mercier Cosmetics and an executive vice president at Neiman Marcus. “Drybar has created an incredibly cool and innovative experience for the consumer,” Gurwitch said. “I am excited to be part of this impressive team to further expand the Drybar brand.”

My appointment is set and I can't wait!

Houston Image Expo- fun fun!

The Image Expo rolled into Houston over the weekend and I was able to attend the  first day. Wanted to go both days but had tons to do. I met so many fabulous people, got to know beauty brands that I otherwise probably never would have met and ultimately it was a blast. Shared the day with my bff blogger Magen Pastor. We scored lots of goodies, saw lots of new trends and made some great connections! 
casual kind of day...
the weather was so beautiful outside
 I was in heaven when I learned about these hair extensions! Mine will be shipped very soon.... Super easy to apply and take down hair extensions makes this product a must have!

Cute leopard and red outfit

Magen applying blush on with the biggest make up brush in the world!

Shany is a Houston based beauty brand who had the cutest make up bags, and make up cases. See the make up palette?  Yes, it's real makeup and it's soo cute I wanted to bring it home with me!

models for Recomier a salon only product, Hola Gustavo!

 You know I had to "Spoil Myself"

And so did should have seen her mini tight curly strand, so funny and cute! 

Love these Vodana products! The curling iron above is a brush and curling iron in one, which gave me a sexy summer wavy look that I went gaga over.

Meet Aaron the CEO. He gave me great insight into Vodana, they are the manufacturer of Paul Mitchell products and other high profile clients and he created his own brand. Vodana means "better than" in Japanese.

Summer nail color must haves

 Obliphica had the largest and most beautiful set up. The staff was so friendly. The products are worn by Pamela Anderson, Macy Gray, Kendra Wilkinson and just added, ME!
 Obliphica just launched a new hair color collection that I cannot wait to try!

Makeup2 (squared) Launch Party hosted by Me

Had the pleasure of hosting a long time friend of mine's make up launch over the weekend. Tee Burr is a celebrity make up artist who I met when I hired her for some music videos a looong time ago. I always kept in contact with her, so when she told me she was launching her own make up line called Makeup Squared and asked me to host her launch party, it was a no brainer.

The evening was filled with fabulous women, great music, good food and lots of laughs and a good time!

You have to support the line, which is the only cosmetics brand designed for women who represent all ethnicities & myriad of skin tone. And guess what, a SpoiledLatina collection may soon be in the making :)

Mandy came out to support

Tee is a makeup genius

the colors are highly pigmented, i love them all

Friday, September 28, 2012

I am always excited to chat with Latino professionals in the beauty business. Ladies and Gents, meet Javier Romero. Javier is the latest addition to the popular Top 5 Agency roster.  The NY based Puerto Rican decent makeup artist has worked with countless celebrities, including Carmelo Anthony, Rita Ora, Roselyn Sanchez, Patricia Velazquez, Keri Hilson, Diego Luna and Nikki Minaj.

Join network groups. Get yourself to any and all beauty-related events in your area. Whether it's a trade show, a trunk show, a store opening, or a book signing, be there with your business cards.
