Craving a fresh lip color? Have a spring fling with fuchsia, like Entourage star Dania Ramirez did in sunny Vegas this past weekend. The best part of the look: with lips this bright, there’s no need to load on eye makeup or wear accessories.
To get a pop of pink as intense as Dania’s, try a full-coverage lipstick like YSL Pure Lipstick in Fuchsia Pink, $30, sephora.com or layer CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Enchantress, $7, drugstore.com, with CoverGirl ShineBlast in Heat, $6.49, drugstore.com.

If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from our Xtina, it’s her classic, fire-engine red mouth—and she didn’t stray from that signature look on the premiere of The Voice last night.
Although it certainly works for her, I’m hoping she’s inspired to change it up now that she’ll be on TV regularly.

For our last day of Afro-Latina week, we’re obsessing over Heather Hemmens’s pretty makeup from her appearance at OK! magazine’s Hollywood’s Sexiest Singles event. It’s the perfect look for a sexy summer night out—and the shades will look great on every Afro-Latina skin tone!
Here’s how to copy it:
1. Line your entire eye with a black liquid eyeliner and a black pencil eyeliner (stacking the formulas stops them from smudging), then apply mascara to top and bottom lashes.

On our fourth day of Afro-Latina beauty week, we’re tackling one of the biggest complaints we hear: Why can’t I find a foundation made for my skin color?!
So often foundations made for darker skin tones look too red on Afro-Latinas, and the foundations made for lighter skin tones look too gray or yellow. Because Afro-Latinas can have olive, red, or golden undertones (like our model Christina Milian), it can be extra difficult to find the perfect shade, says makeup artist Jackie Gomez. No wonder so many of us out there feel frustrated!

Rewind fifteen years and many of us would barely recognize Jennifer Lopez! She’s fearlessly reinvented her look throughout her career—but no more so than this year as a judge on American Idol, for her latest music videos off her new album Love?, and as a model in ads for Gucci, Venus, and L’Oreal. The inspiration we can all get from her evolving look won’t cost a thing. Click through our slideshow to see the star’s greatest beauty moments from her Fly Girl days to now.

After a big morning hike in Los Angeles with Javier and baby Leo (where paparazzi snapped shots of the trio), Penelope Cruz—who looked stunning in jeans, a black blazer, vintage-y heels and barely any makeup—sat down with Latina.com to talk exclusively about what it’s like being a new mom. Here's what the new mami had to say.

If I saw a woman on the street with blue eye shadow all the way up to her eyebrows, I’d most likely think she went overboard! But what would look ridiculous on anyone else looks completely gorgeous on J.Lo. Do you agree, or is it too much for you?

We usually see Fergie in black leather and knee-high boots when she’s performing with the Peas, but for her American Idol appearance last night she tried a more feminine retro look, wearing a Marilyn Monroe white halter dress, styling her hair into a deep side-part with soft waves, and showing off bright fuchsia lips and green nails (it was St. Patrick’s Day). Here at Latina, the votes are split over whether we like our Fergie fierce or girlie—what do you think?
