Two weeks ago, I attended an event called “Divinas y Humanas” thanks to Jergens and John Frieda. This event commemorates women in entertainment who have positioned themselves as very important figures in the Hispanic business.

My day started at a suite at the Conrad Hotel with Jergens, John Frida, and a fab group of bloggers: Carmen from Viva Fashion, Astrid from Latin Blah, Romina from My Life Mi Vida, and the Diario de la Moda Team. We got a little spoiled by John Frieda Celebrity Stylist Sebastian Scolarici and Millie Morales. Millie is a celebrity makeup artist- definitely one of my favorites, she is truly an artist and a makeup genius (that should be her title). Then Sebastian did my hair in a low ponytail with a little bit of volume; I like asking for hairstyles that I wouldn’t (or basically can’t) do myself. My favorite product was the John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray because it kept my ponytail brushable and very soft.

After getting dressed, we were surprised by the winner of Nuestra Belleza Latina 2014, Aleyda Ortiz (who was also a Divinas y Humanas winner). She shared with us tons of beauty tips and Millie showed us how to get her look. “It’s key to achieve an effortless look for any occasion,” says Millie. “That’s why I rely on Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream for flawless-looking skin.” Below see the steps to get Aleyda’s look.

1 To prepare for this event, Aleyda started using Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream a week in advance. In just five days, this cream instantly hydrated, illuminated, evened, firmed, and minimized the appearance of imperfections. “As soon as I started using Jergens BB Cream, my skin instantly felt moisturized and luminous,” said Aleyda.
2 To match Aleyda’s beautiful skin I matched a foundation. Then I used a translucent powder to seal the foundation. To build her face, I used a contouring technique and highlighted her cheekbones and a few areas of her nose. I made sure to highlight her cheek bones with an illuminator with silver tones to match her beautiful gown.
3 For her eyes, I combined cold tones like violet and silver shimmer and created a smokey nude eye. I call it that because instead of an eyeliner I used a shadow pencil on the edges of her eyes to give them more dimension and depth. For her eyebrows, I applied a cream gel with an angled brush, since she was attending an event this will last longer than a powder. When applying the mascara, I wiggled the mascara from the root to the end to create volume and avoid clumps. I recommend applying three layers of mascara to maximize volume.
4 For the lips, I applied a nude lip liner to keep color intact around her lips and then used a shimmery lip gloss in a nude tone to keep a natural look.
5 To finish her look, I used a light pink blush. I recommend smiling and applying on the apples of the cheeks.
6 Right before heading to the red carpet, Aleyda applied BB Body Cream on her legs and arms to be camera ready!

She also told us how she inherited her love for beauty and fashion from her grandma and how she loves supporting Puerto Rican designers (she is from Puerto Rico, of course!). Then we were almost ready…why almost? We all put a little bit of Jergens BB Body Creamon our arms and legs (just like Aleyda…because hey we wanted to look as radiant as her). For my look, I went for a fringe skirt with a simple crop top…I’m all about fringe lately and I wanted that to be the main statement (besides my glowing skin!). We had a blast at the event; I loved seeing familiar faces all together. There was also a cute beauty bar where the winners of the awards could get some touch-ups! It was a great day and I feel so grateful with Jergens and John Frieda for considering me for this opportunity. You can check out Instagram.com/JergensUS for my takeover that night. Hope you enjoyed the pictures! XOXO
