Beauty Inspiration from Latina Celebrities

January 20, 2009 at 2:05 PM by Isabella Wall | Comments

I look to these beautiful Latinas for ideas on how to get glam for quince — see whose face and features match yours and copy their look!

eva mendes

Eva Mendes has an oval-shaped face. She is an all-around beautiful Latina with a very special beauty mark. This look is great for a girlie quinceañera. Here, she adds volume on top to update a classic French-style bun. The finishing touch is the side-parted, layered bangs, which showcase her best feature: HER EYES! She likes to wear a luscious hue of pink lipstick, blush to play down her beauty mark — making her eyes stand out between the eye liner — and glittery sparkles around her eyelids.

christina aguileraChristina Aguilera's old-Hollywood look is a perfect accent for a heart-shaped face. It looks good on brunettes too and it's easy to achieve with the "rolos" that we Latinas know and love so much. Her classic look especially matches a glamorous or retro Hollywood theme. Christina's makeup is achieved with flawless foundation, fake eyelashes, and only a hint of eye shadow. This look goes perfectly with deep red lipstick.

zoe saldanaZoë Saldanana wears her hair smooth and down. Her makeup is two tones of green that complement her brown eyes and bronzed skin. It's a fun look for a fresh, outdoor summer quinceañera. She applied a lighter green eye shadow toward the inner corner and only up to the middle of the lids. Then, she uses darker shadow from the middle to the crease and blends it well. The dark shadow is also used as eyeliner all around the lash lines.

america ferreraAmerica Ferrera's sophisticated updo, with large waves of hair cascading from one side, is well-suited for her rounder face shape. Dark, smoky eyes, pale cheeks, and natural-color lipstick that make her eyes stand out are excellent choices for a formal quinceañera.

adriana limaAdriana Lima, the Brazilian beauty who is one of the Victoria's Secret supermodels, favors a purplish shade of pink on her cheeks and on her lips. She wears minimal eyeliner and mascara, clean hair, and has a fresh, casual attitude. This is another awesome look for an outdoor quinceañera in the summertime.

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba has big brown eyes and full lips, which she plays up with natural-color makeup. When she wants to look fairer, she favors tones in shades of blue or violet, and when she wants to play up deeper skin tones, she uses shades like crimson or orange. She adds lots of volume to her full-wave mane.

Did I miss anyone you admire? Who is your beauty inspiration for quinceañera?
