Selena Quintanilla Inspired Makeup Looks

Hi dolls!

I want to dedicate this post to one of my idols – Selena Quintanilla.

No one rocked red lips like she did. I channeled my inner Selena in this post with four of my favorite looks.

She was the definition of glamor and yet she humbly shopped at Wal-Mart just like everyone else. Her style was effortless and it’s still influential in today’s fashion. Her bustiers are iconic. Selena was definitely ahead of her time.

Selena was the ultimate star. Not many performers today can sing better live. If you look back at old videos, Selena’s voice sounded incredible while she was on stage and you could feel her passion with every single note she hit. It’s honestly so amazing.

Selena was the most down-to-earth celebrity. She connected with all of her fans, and wasn’t afraid to be real with them. 

I know I sound like I met her or like I actually saw her in concert, but that’s what is so great about her. Selena’s music, fashion, and impact on the Latin community still lives on. It’s almost as if she never passed away.

I was about 2-years-old when Selena tragically died on March 31st. Even then, I still knew about her music because that’s all my family played. I’m born and bred from Texas, so best believe Selena was a big deal to me. Not to mention, I’m also a Mexican-American just like her.

When the movie came out, that’s when I really understood what happened to her. After the film, I fell even more in love with her music. It’s crazy to think she passed away when she was only 23. I’m 23 and still feel like a teenager sometimes. It’s insane to think she was already so successful in her career and creating music that would live on forever. Gone too soon.

Here are my favorite looks:

Beauty Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Hi dolls!

I’m so late to the party! I know this product has received so many reviews and first impressions, so I decided to try it out for myself! I have to say that I have a love-hate relationship with this concealer.

Product: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: $8.99 (Prices vary, but ULTA always has discounts!)

PROS: Feels like foundation, thick coverage for annoying pimples/redness, and thankfully, it feels like you have nothing on!

CONS: Hate the applicator, like soooo much! This might be a personal thing, but I don’t like twisty tubes or that the applicator is a sponge. I feel like you don’t know how much product you’re actually getting out. There aren’t that many shades, so if you’re a darker skin tone, it could be hard to find the shade that matches you best.

I’m not gonna lie, I was a little terrified to post a photo of me with a huge pimple on the Internet! I do this for you! LOL. Seriously, what better way to test out this product, which is meant for concealing. However, this product mostly claims to cover up dark circles and redness, so I was hoping it would cover up the planet on my chin!

Like I said earlier, I hate the applicator and the twisty top. Not my favorite, but not the worst either. It’s hard for me to tell how much product I’m getting because the sponge sort of soaks it all up, and I can’t twist it too much or else I’ll make a mess.

I love that this product is thick, yet feels weightless. I’m definitely one of those beauty girls who HATES to feel cakey. My oily skin does not react well to too much product. So it’s nice to have a concealer that covers, but that also doesn’t feel like frosting on your face.

With that being said, this concealer tends to crust if your face is dry. In my blemish area, I used a nightcream that usually dries out the pimple. So for the rest of the day, I noticed that my chin was more dry compared to most days, and the concealer sort of became crusty. Surprisingly, this product works well with oily skin. My under eyes looked flawless.

Overall, I would probably purchase this concealer again. It’s definitely not my favorite and it’s not the first concealer I grab, but it does work.

Hope this helped lovelies! If you’ve tried this product, I want to hear from you! xoxo
