Setting a #StrongFoundation for your day with Neutrogena

Foundation, probably one of the most important elements of your makeup routine. How do you choose the right shade? And, how do you apply it? We teamed up with Neutrogena® to ask 15 Latina Beauty Bloggers those questions, and we got their tips and tricks for flawless foundation application in the process. The bloggers started by visiting the Neutrogena® site and taking the Shade Finder Quiz, which helps you find the right shade of Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, Nourishing Long Wear Makeup, and SkinClearing Liquid Makeup for you and now incorporates the brand’s NEW shade extensions: Honey, Caramel, Cocoa and Chestnut.

"I just love how cute the Dove logo on the beauty bar is! After using the soap for about a week my skin felt radiant and smooth after every use. It felt nice to dry myself off and not feel dry and irritated. I ran my hands down my legs and wow what a difference."

"Soaps often strip the skin of essential nutrients and end up drying out the skin. Luckily Dove is not a soap and is instead proven to be more gentle and mild than soap. The Dove Beauty Bar is all I’ve been using on my body and face. Yes, face too!"

#WeAllGrow Summit Takes Over YouTube Space LA

As many of you know, we recently celebrated the launch of the much anticipated #WeAllGrow Summit. After four years of a lot of hard work and determination, Latina Bloggers Connect felt it was time to create a platform that will bring together all the voices and stories that have served as an inspiration to us all. From blogs to Instagram to YouTube, there has never been a shortage of inspiration. However, all in one room? It was certainly an experience many of us will remember for a long time. With so many Latinas creating video content, we decided to start the party early at the mecca of digital content creation, YouTube! With informative tours and delicious food on hand, they spoiled #WeAllGrow Summit attendees setting the tone for what is about to become three days of life-changing moments.

#WeAllGrow Summit YouTube Space LA

The #WeAllGrow Pre-Treat at YouTube Space LA started with plenty of LA sunshine and much excitement to see old friends and make new ones. In many ways, it was a lot like a family reunion. After all, we all share so much with each other online by offering support, answering questions and by simply enjoying each other’s updates and stories.

#WeAllGrowSummit YouTube Space LA

We were blown away by the magnitude of YouTube Space LA and the amount of resources available. Did you know that access to their equipment is free? The level of access depends on the amount of subscribers you have and there’s a YouTube Space in LA and NYC in the U.S. and three more across the globe. If you live in LA or NYC, there’s really no excuse to start your channel with such an amazing resource and workshops available to you. YouTube has over a billion viewers and approximately 300 hours of video are uploaded every minute. It’s time to carve out your space!

#WeAllGrow Summit YouTube Space LA

After taking in all YouTube Space has to offer, we sat down with Dulce, Alba, Daniela and Maiah - four fashion and beauty creators who started their journey with a passion for sharing what they love. As their outlets grew, they quickly became savvy business women, sought-after brand ambassadors and an inspiration to young women all over the world. It was very obvious that they absolutely love what they do and feel a strong connection to their communities. And isn’t that what it’s all about?
