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!

Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias and Shakira are just some of the Latin artists that have successfully crossed over into the English language market, paving the way for the many musicians who dream of stardom on U.S. soil.

Already the number one selling women’s fragrance in New York City’s flagship Macy's department store after only six days on the floor, Beyoncé’s first fragrance, Heat, is generating some…well, you know. The only thing hotter than the sales of this sweet juice is the ad campaign, shot by "Single Ladies" video director Jake Nava. The spot features a writhing Beyoncé in a clingy, silky slip of a dress—which does actually slip off her back at one point in the video—singing the smokin' hot classic tune, "Fever."

Beyoncé accepted an award during the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards in Berlin in November wearing Sass & Bide's black and gold minidress, gold patent leather platforms and full curls.

Angie Martinez is convinced there’s a little Latin in everybody. Here, Beyoncé talks about seducing all of Latin America and the Spanish music she played at her wedding.
Angie: For someone who is not Latin, you’re doing okay in that market—the theme song for a novela (El Zorro), a Spanish bonus CD (B’day Deluxe Edition) and a Latin Grammy nod (2007).
Beyoncé: Wait, I didn’t even know about the Latin Grammy.
A.M.: Really? It was for “Bello Embustero” with Shakira.

Think about it: Although there's a long list of Latino stars who've crossed over to sing in English (Shakira, Ricky, Paulina...) what non-Latin star has successfully done the reverse? We can't think of anyone, which is why Beyoncé's new all-Spanish EP, Irremplazable, is such a big deal.
We caught up with B while she was in NYC promoting the Spanish project to find out why she took that risk—and which Latin stars she thinks are hot!
