These are just a few shades of colors that may or may not work for you.  Most Latinas will agree that the right shade of lipstick can take their look to the next level of fierceness. Some of us spend hours on Youtube, Sephora, or in front of mirrors in search for the right hue that makes us look and feel fabulous. Recently, Instagram sensation Jennifer Ruiz, known as Jen_ny69 on social media, advised Latinas to get rid of their pink lippies. 

In January, the Youtuber posted a photo on Instagram advising Latinas to toss their pink shades of lipsticks. "I have officially gotten rid of all the pink lipsticks I own, please save your money pink lipsticks don't look right on Latinas," she expressed. Say what?! Yes, chicas! Ruiz believes in rockin' "realistic makeup." She recommends wearing colors that are mauvy on browner skin tones and cautions us around using bright and neon pink lipsticks.

She's transparent with her chicas on all levels from sharing her beauty, fitness, and even mami tips.
