Premios Juventud Beauty Look


Alejandra Espinoza - 1

Alejandra Espinoza - 2

Happy Friday fabu folks!  I caught Premios Juventud last night and couldn’t get over how gorgeous Alejandra Espinoza looked—- she went for a sensual look with this very sexy dress.  She definitely took the “plunge” with that neckline and showed off those fit legs with the side slits.  When you’re making such a statement with your outfit, it’s always best if your makeup is understated.  I love the softness of her beauty look, which is perfect for summer.  I got the scoop from her makeup artist Franz Munoz about the inspiration behind this look and the products he used to create it.  It was all about achieving a natural, yet polished looks so he opted from warm colors, including plum liner, coral cheeks for a flushed look and soft rosy lips.  Here’s the step by step:

STEP 1: Create a perfect canvas using L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($24.99) as a skin primer to give a nice dewy, radiant complexion

STEP 2: Gently dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Golden Beige($10.95) to contour. Blend in with the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige ($10.95)  to create a sun-kissed caramel glow. No powder needed to keep the look fresh and dewy.

STEP 3: For the eyes, apply the darkest shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Absolute Taupe ($9.99) over your entire eyelid and the medium-colored one in the crease. Use the lightest shade from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Perpetual Nude ($9.99) along your brow bone. *Secret tip: Franz added a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in Goldmine ($12) to make the makeup more llamativo

STEP 4: To highlight the eyes, first add a winged line above the upper lash line with a fun summer green shade from L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in True Teal ($8.99).  Beneath the lower lash line use the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Pure Purple ($8.99) as it’s a perfect color for daytime that plays well with tan to darker skin tones.

STEP 5: Apply two coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black ($7.99) to the upper lashes

STEP 4: On the apple of your cheeks, lightly dab the blush from Urban Decay’sNAKED FLUSHED in Native ($30) for a natural flush and highlight the cheek bones and nose with its built-in highlighter.

STEP 5: Create a polished glossy lip using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipcolour in Rose Melody ($9.99), one of my favorite colors from the line!

Keeping Summer Cool




It’s Friday folks, so this post is filled with much excitement! Can you feel it already?  I thought it would be a great day to tell you about how I kick off my mornings — so I jump out of bed at 6:30 – yawn! and take my behind straight to the gym.  I’m not necessarily a morning person, but I’m all about getting it out of the way and I feel amazing afterwards.  There are a few essential items that are a MUST in my gym bag– these breathable pants and matching bra from Adidas, these adorable New Balance sneakers from the Heidi Klum line and my Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. because I need to wake up!  The way I see it– it keeps me hydrated and takes me from feeling comatose to being completely energized for my workout.  Plus, it’s an awesome on the go option so I’ve been stocking up on all of the different flavors every time I go to the supermarket.  I can’t decide if my favorite is the regular flavor or the vanilla, both are delicious!  Anyhow, I hope you’re keeping staying hydrated drinking iced coffee my lovelies!


Feliz viernes! Hoy les dire como normalmente empiezo mi día y mi rutina de las mañanas.  Me levanto a las 6:30 y me voy directo al gimnasio.  Se me hace super difícil despertar en la mañana, pero siempre me siento increíble después que termino de hacer ejercicios. Hay algunos elementos esenciales para mi bolsa del gimnasio – estos pantalones transpirables y sujetador de Adidas, estos tennis de la linea de Heidi Klum para New Balance y mi Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, porque necesito ayuda para despertar! La manera en que yo lo veo – me mantiene hidratada y me lleva de sentirse en estado de coma a estar completamente despierta.  No puedo decidir si mi favorito es el sabor regular o el de vainilla, ambos son deliciosos! De todos modos, espero que se estén manteniendo hidratados este verano bebiendo café helado mis bellezas!

Bottled Starbucks Iced Coffee beverages are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and 2 percent milk. Available in four delicious offerings: Coffee + Milk, Low Calorie Coffee + Milk, Vanilla, and Caramel, Starbucks Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are the perfect on-the-go refreshment to get you through the daily commute, big projects such as spring cleaning, or an exciting road trip with friends. Look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide.

Jersey Jumpsuit





Don’t know about you, but I’m been trying to come up with office looks that help keep me cool during these hot summer months and it’s definitely a challenge!  This light jersey jumpsuit has come in handy and I can throw either a blazer over or a cute vest like this to dress it up.  Paired here with a single strap pump and this black and white bag from TJ Maxx.

Tribal Summer







Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great 4th of July!  If you’ve been following on Instagram you know that I’m just getting back from a wonderful week in Cabo celebrating our “almost” three year anniversary.  It was awesome being somewhat disconnected, sipping margaritas and being pool and beachside all day.  Now back to reality– IT IS HOT IN NYC, and I’m relying on my maxi dresses to keep me looking chic and feeling cool.  I snatched this pretty maxi dress during my last trip to Target, it’s super lightweight and the print is spot on trend so what’s not to love?  My cross body bag is DVF and wedges are Jimmy Choo– all about mixing high low items.  Happy week!

Hola a todos! Espero que todos hayan tenido un gran 4 de julio! Si me has estado siguiendo en Instagram sabes que acabamos de pasar una semana maravillosa en Cabo celebrando nuestro “casi” tercer aniversario. Fue increíble estar un poco desconectada, bebiendo margaritas y estando junto a la playa todo el día. Ahora, de vuelta a la realidad – Hace calor en Nueva York, y no me pienso quitar un vestido maxi para mantener un look chic y sentirme refrescada.  Compre este vestido maxi durante mi último viaje a Target, es super ligero y cómodo.  Mi bolsa es DVF y mis zapatos son Jimmy Choo.  Feliz semana!


One Dress//Three Ways #targetstyle

Happy mid week guys!!  Now that we’re smack in the middle of summer, I can’t stop shopping for dresses– I’m all about ease, comfort and maximizing the pieces in my closet.  If you haven’t checked out Target’s selection of summer dresses– put your sneakers on and run (or just click away @  You’ll be so impressed by the options and more importantly, how much wear you can get out of a dress like this one: enter, the most versatile maxi dress!  Here’s what I love about it: the pretty floral print, the criss cross detail in the back, it’s long enough to be a maxi, but short enough that it can be worn with flats and the two slits on each side make it daring enough for a night out.  Below you’ll see how style this dress three different ways: just by adding a few accessories, layers and swapping shoes I accomplished three different looks that are perfect for running errands in style, brunch with the gals and date night with your boy.  Enjoy!

Look One: Running Errands in Style  IMG_0716







Look Two: Brunch With The Gals 







Look Three: Date Night With The Boy 








Ahora que estamos justo en el medio del verano, no puedo dejar de comprar vestidos! Yo voy a la facilidad, la comodidad y la maximización de las piezas en mi armario. Si todavía no han visto la selección de verano de vestidos en Target– tienen que hacerlo de inmediato! Estarás tan impresionada por las opciones y lo más importante es lo versátil que son vestidos como este que llevo puesto. Esto es lo que me gusta de el: la tela floral, el detalle cruzado en la parte de atrás, a pesar de ser maxi, es lo suficientemente corto que se puede usar con los sandalias planas y con tacones.  A continuación verá cómo me pongo este vestido de tres formas diferentes: sólo cambiando algunos accesorios, capas y zapatos logré tres looks diferentes que son perfectos para ir de compras, brunch con las chicas y a cenar una noche con tu pareja. Disfruten!

Summer Beauty Glow






Oh, hello from Cabo!  Hope you’re all having an amazing week.  When I was packing for this trip I really wanted to simplify my makeup arsenal and since Summer is about both, bringing out your natural glow and simplifying your makeup routine, it was the perfect time to take this baby on the road.  I’m all about keeping it simple, not layering too many products and if I can eliminate the extra step of using brushes—we have a winner product! RMS Beauty Lip2cheek makes putting on makeup so easy, this convertible pod of heaven has been my go to for my daily beauty routine— it’s perfectly pigmented to deliver that pretty rosiness on your cheeks and  lips. There’s such a wide range of shades that will complement all skin tones, you’ll have no trouble finding one that works for you. It’s no surprise that it’s made Oprah’s O List twice – big kudos! For this beauty look—I used Demure, a pink shade with a hint of mauve, which delivered this orchid-like color, one of the hottest for summer. Explore the beautiful shades and rest of the line at
