Format: Hardcover
Attracted by the lovely cover model I picked "Latina Beauty" up at the bookstore. Just a quick glimpse through the pages and I a nonhispanic decided to splurge.
The book is a gem no matter what your ethnicity. Though geared to the Latina woman, the content is appropriate for every woman. Who doesn't want flawless skin, striking eyes and attitude! This book covers it all! You will learn everything from creating a sacred space to eating for optimum health.
I learned a lot from this book that is not covered in other beauty books. How to look for the glints of color in my eyes and using the color wheel, select an eyeshadow color that will pull out the shade I want to emphasize. How to create the illusion of plump, luscious lips without looking like a clown!
And the information in presented beautifully. Glossy pages and lovely pictures justify the price. It's oversized but not unweldy like many other beauty books.
Get this book and get gorgeous with attitude!

As all women know, society has enveloped the idea that you must be anorexic to be beautiful in this world, but I think this book embraces the fact that we are all beautiful. Plus, gives wonderful and easy insights on how to bring our inner beauty to the outside! The introduction from Daisy Fuentes is a wonderful beginning of personal and endearing experiences. It also takes its time to describe every type of makeup that is out there and what is best for our skin. It explains different skin types and what would go better with different skin color. After reading this book I realized that more than half of the makeup that I have purchased over the years is wrong for my type of skin and tone! Thanks LATINA!

Format: Hardcover
i bought this book because everywhere i looked there were beauty books and advice in magazines that didnt cater to my particular skintone (olive) not even bobbi browns book helped much.i loved this book from the start. it has beautiful pages and advice that one cannot find in the other beauty books out on the market. it encourages women to stay healthy and to have some sort of spirituality in their lives. what it didnt have was something like beauty when a woman is pregnant annd after childbirth;it didnt have anything like beauty throughout ones lifetime either. but maybe that canbe for a revised edition of latina beauty. it is too bad that this book went out of print. it is a one of a kind book that shows scrawny and pale shouldnt and isnt 'the perfect image'. all women of all colors and sizes are beautiful! i really loved this book and it helped me appreciate my culture and my skin coloring.it taught me a thing or two about taking care of my whole self-inside and out.

This book is an amazing resource of information. As a Latina I had been looking for a book exactly like this and I'm glad I got it. I feel I have learned more from this book about make up and general beauty than I have from any other beauty book I've read. I also recommend the Bobbi Brown Make up Manual to go along with this. These two books are all you will ever need as a Latina, this book for shade recommendation and in depth tips and Bobbi Brown's book for general application. This book has been immensely helpful in my journey to finally learn to do my make up correctly.
