This past weekend, I had the opportunity to work as a field correspondent at the COVERGIRL & Tide Style Center in Calle Ocho, alongside some of my fave fashion bloggers, Daniela from Nany's Klozet and Astrid from Latin Blah. I had such a great time. Wilmer Valderrama was also on-hand to help select the winners of the COVERGIRL & Tide Style Mavens of Calle Ocho 2014.
The contest helped celebrate Miami's vibrant style and showcased community members who have that "it" factor and inspire friends and family to look sharp(there was plenty of vibrant, colorful and fashion filled with culture). The winner was an adorable older man that was dressed in a typical Colombian outfit---so cute! You should have seen him dancing a cumbia on stage when they announced him as the winner.
There were tons of fun activities at the Style Center, from free nail art with your countries' flag to celebrate your orgullo Latino (I of course, had to do the Colombian flag). After the manicure you got to walk down the mani-cam.
Here are some pictures from the event I thought you'd enjoy. You can also 'Like" the Orgullosa Facebook page for more pics from the event.
After the event, I also got to try the new COVERGIRL truBLEND foundation. It's made out of a water-base formula that blends seamlessly into the skin, so you always get the perfect shade. The great thing is that it comes in 21 different tones, from light, medium to dark, so you're bound the find the right color for your skin. I ended up picking the M6 blend for my skin.
It goes on super light and doesn't feel heavy at all, which is something I always look for in makeup. It helped cover all my imperfections and dark spots too, while still looking very natural. Since it's made out of a water-base, you also don't have to worry about it clogging your pores.
You can find it at most drug stores for under $10 bucks.
Have you had a chance to try it out?
