Danna Garcia Inspired Make Up Tutorial

...and for all of you wondering right now "Who is Danna Garcia??", she's a famous colombian actress & singer.

Here she is:

Beautiful Danna

She is very famous in Latin America,
especially among the fans of "telenovelas"

This is the most accurate pic of the make up, that I'm recreating today,
that I was able to find. I hope you can see it well enough!

How did I get the inspiration to recreate Danna's make up?
First of all, because I simply LOVE the make up she is wearing on the pic above!
Second of all, because I'm currently watching (on-line) "Pasion de Gavilanes", a famous colombian telenovela from the 2003. featuring some of the hottest actors of Latin America, such as Paola Rey, Juan Alfonso Baptista, Mario Cimarro y Michel Brown.
And, as much as it can sound "nerdy" to some people, I'm not ashame to admit that occasionally I like to indulge into watching las telenovelas from Latin America!
I, on the other hand, can't stand the reality shows of any kind, and just don't get me started about the reality shows because I'm so indignant when it comes to them, that I could go on & on about my reasons for absolutely despising that type of TV amusement...this blog post would turn into something else rather than a blog post about my recent make up tutorial!

Back onto the topic, this is the look that I created:

I hope you liked this look!
It can be a great everyday look, but you can also wear this on more special occasions, if you're generally not very much into a heavy smoky eye...this look is a great alternative!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I like it! very fresh for summer!
    I also hate hate hate reality TV... it's excessive here in Italy, isn't it?! Isola di questi, amici...e la lista va avanti!

  2. @Roanna: uffa, questi italiani sono impazziti con la reality tv, un vero trash tv, ci credi che io da quando sono in Italia (ormai più di 3 anni) la TV non la guardo? Non ce l'ho nemmeno! Beh, ho un LCD che può essere usato sia come monitor, sia come la tv, e quando lo uso come la tv è solo per vedere i miei dvd!

  3. Hi Sonja! Oh, I was laughing about your comments above as we are just opposites on this topic! LOL I had a Latin American boyfriend Dr., who was an excellent Dr. but a big chicken, that could not handle breaking off a relationship the proper way! So, I am not really interested in anything like that, as you could imagine. On the other hand, I ADORE reality shows, esp. The Hills, Real Housewives of NY, OC, ect. (NOT Atlanta)...and not Big brother...but I LOVE Teen MOM, ect. LOL LOL LOL My inlaws love Spain and have been a few times, as well as my husband. Does that count? LOL Love the makeup!xxoo
