Salma’s Skin Secrets

Salma is on the cover of the May issue of Lucky, shilling her new beauty line and her hubby’s vast fashion holdings.

She has brought her skincare secrets to the masses via her line Nuance, sold only at CVS stores and at cvs.com.  The ingredients read like a Nuevo-Latino haute cuisine cookbook with ingredients like quinoa, cacao, agave, and of course, lime.

From Sofia Vergara’s interview in Esquire:
Is body taste here confusing for Latinas? Here, there’s an emphasis on being skinny.
Well, in Colombia everybody’s very voluptuous and you’re supposed to be. You don’t want to be skinny when all of your cousins are mermaids. You grow up thinking that’s how beauty is.
I once read that you felt like you were born with lipstick on. Do you not feel natural unless you’re wearing makeup?
Yeah. I love putting makeup on. I grew up watching my mother. Before my mother took us to school in the morning, she was taking her rollers out and putting on lipstick. Now I think, Where was she going? But in the moment it was normal.
Bottom line: A Latina is supposed to look as beautiful as possible at every moment
Yes.

Jennifer Lopez is a size 6

when she is in her “normal” phase.  Like most of us, she is a perpetual shape shifter, going up to a size 8 after a holiday and getting down to size 4 when she is in top form.  She also admitted that as a mom she can’t exercise as much as she used to.

We are having a vintage moment …

Our “Latinas We Love" Pinterest board was such a hit, we made a second one: "Vintage Latinas.”  Enjoy

Check out this brilliant Latina-powered blog we discovered.  Her hair and makeup is serious retro. Strictly for the bold.

There are no Latinas on Mad Men

There are no Latina characters on our favorite show Mad Men.  We find this omission odd, since the show is supposed to take place in New York City in the 60’s. New York City in the 60’s and not a Latina to be found? Really? Do the writers and producers think we don’t look the part?

We disagree, as would Naya Rivera, who channeled a great retro look in this photo shoot for Instyle Makeovers.
