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!

In honor of our Afro-Latina week on Latina.com, I stopped by the Marie Robinson salon here in NYC, where Marie set out to show me—and my lovely model Quiana—how to lighten up Quiana’s gorgeous, natural hair color using a box of dye from the drugstore. Follow her steps to copy this fresh summer look!
1. Marie chose Clairol Natural Instincts Vibrant in 9A Light Cool Blonde ($9, clairol.com). Despite Quiana’s warm skin tone, Marie picked a cool, ashy blonde shade so that the color wouldn’t turn too brassy.

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.

While dishing out recipes from her new cookbook, Eva’s Kitchen, this week, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria shared another type of recipe: her homemade face mask!
Eva’s skin is always incredibly radiant, and now we know why—she exfoliates weekly with her homemade face mask, made of coffee, lemon juice, and olive oil. The coffee grounds remove the dry, flaky skin cells that make you look dull, and—because they contain caffeine—rev up circulation, while lemon juice brightens and olive oil hydrates.
