Blogger's Update!

Hello there! Sorry I've been away for a while but here's an update on what I've been up to!

I've been busy having started college, joining a college theatre production (that's why I have this headshot above!), and even interned as a makeup assistant on a TV Pilot and Film set! It was an exciting experience that I learned a lot from and hope to do more and more in the future as I gain experience and make a name for myself in the industry. Shoutout to my friends Kim, Nikki, and Tonic By the Sea Skincare line for the opportunity! It was fun working with amazing and talented artists on set and other talented people in the entertainment industry.

In the meantime I plan on becoming a certified Hair Stylist and Special Effects Artist in the future while I pursue my Bachelor's in Media Arts Design and of course continue blogging here on Latina Beauty Blog!

I promise in the future I will post more frequently and since Halloween and Day of the Dead/ Dia de Los Muertos is coming up please feel free to send in requests for looks or tutorials!

If you'd like to contact me for other reasons such as bookings and business inquiries you may reach me at my email: analisasmakeup@gmail.com

Indian Wedding Look!

I've been meaning to post this and finally got around to it! So here's a new look for a new occasion!

A good friend of mine recently attended an Indian wedding and asked me to help her get ready for the occasion and of course I agreed! She wore a beautiful light pink sari so we went with some neutral earth tone shades from my Urban Decay Naked 1 & 2 palettes and a natural pink lip color. We went with a very light grey and purple smokey eye that wasn't dark like a traditional smokey eye but still formal and flattering for the occasion. It was a very hot summer day and since she already has naturally lovely skin, I just dusted some Ben Nye powder on her as a touch up. It was fun getting her dolled up since Indian weddings are known to have fabulous makeup and I did my best to live up to such standard! Isn't she lovely? Look at that smile! :)

Mike Wazowski Lip Art!

Hello there! Are you planning to see Monster's University? I am!! When I saw Monster's Inc when I was six years old with my sister I loved it! So in honor of the sequel I did Mike Wazowski lip art! Since my Stitch lip art was a huge success on instagram, reddit, beautylish, pinterest, and among friends on facebook I figured I'd try something that works for my strange little teeth! 

For this look I used:
-Mac Paint Pot in 'Soft Orche' as a base
-Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette
-Rimmel London Soft Kohl White Eyeliner
-Wet N' Wild MegaLast Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Send me requests if you want me to do another character/creature lip art! :)

Meet My Sister Marisa!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your summer so far! Part of what is so awesome about summer is wedding season! And speaking of weddings, my sister is attending one today and asked me to do her makeup and to be a model in my portfolio! 

So for my sister's look, she went with classic beauty makeup (I promise I'll spice up my blog posts with other looks but hey, its classic!) to go with her red dress. 

Here are the products I used on her:

-Olay Moisturizer
-Too Faced Primed and Poreless 
-Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse foundation 
-Ben Nye concealer & rainbow wheel (to conceal and color correct)
-Estee Lauder blush (I'll look up the name and post it)
-Sorme Bronzer in 'Sunkissed'
-Urban Decay Naked Palette
-Mac Blacktrack Fluidline gel eyeliner
-Maybelline Colossal mascara
-Mac lipliner in 'Brick'
-Mac 'Ruby Woo' lipstick

The great thing about Classic Beauty Makeup/Pin Up/Retro makeup (whatever you prefer to call it) When it's applied well with the right shades of colors for the individual, its so flattering, classy, elegant, beautiful and can be worn anytime of the year for almost any occasion! :)

Graduation Look!!! (Before & After)

Hi everyone! Today was my second graduation this year but this time its from High School!!! Yay! Today was a lovely day to celebrate with my friends, classmates, teachers and family and it has been very bittersweet. I'll always be grateful for the love and support my high school community gave me for my love and passion for makeup artistry even though it was a little out of the ordinary, I felt so special and humbled for being known for what I love to do! So thank you to my friends, family, mentors, and classmates for the fun memories and lessons learned over the past four years! i could not have persevered through the rough times and enjoyed the good times without you guys! Finally, good luck to the class of 2013 on all your future endeavors!

For today's post I thought I would do a before and after of just a simple but tasteful look for the occasion. I'll post more detailed photos later so you can see the makeup more clearly and know what products I used! :)

Just Graduated from Makeup School! Officially a Certified & Professional Makeup Artist!!

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been M.I.A. the past few months but its all for good reasons-so that I know what I'm talking about when talking about makeup!! I just graduated from Makeup School with my certification and was honored to have 1st place in our class Makeup Photo Shoot with my friend who modeled my Pin Up 1950's Classic beauty makeup! I won an amazing makeup case, some Z palettes, Tonic By the Sea (which is an amazing line of products created by my amazing teacher, I highly recommend them!!) and a few other goodies! I'm so thrilled and happy to have taken on this journey especially at the tail end of my high school career!! I certainly could not have done it without the love and support of my friends, family, teachers, and loved ones who inspired me and pushed me to do my best and keep going! I love you all and can't thank you enough, it really means the world to me! I'm so excited to graduate from High School next weekend and start my makeup career throughout college and beyond! Now I can promise more blog posts with more looks, products, reviews, tutorials, and models!! Yayy! :D

First Professional Photo Shoot Makeup

For my makeup class the students were required to bring in a model for a professional photo shoot for our portfolios and I brought my lovely and beautiful friend, Caelin, who has supported me from the very beginning. For my first photo, I decided to go with the classic beauty makeup of the 1950s 'Pin Up' look since its my favorite look! This is the first of many to add to my portfolio.
