Spanish women have some of the most accessible beauty secrets. Unlock your natural beauty like a sexy señorita.
Here are five beauty tips that Spanish women swear by.
Keep Your Lips Bare
Actress Penelope Cruz is the epitome of Spanish beauty, and one of her signature looks is rocking a bare lip with a full face of makeup. Not wearing lipstick or wearing a nude lip makes it easier to highlight other features of your face without overwhelming the face with color.
If you want to go bare, try products like the Burt's Bees Lip Treatment Lip Scrub to keep your lips healthy. If you want to try a nude lipstick, a good drugstore option is the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Bare It All.” If you want to splurge, check out the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in “Nude Kate”.
A Little Eyeliner Goes a Long Way
Penelope Cruz is well-known for her beautiful eyeliner looks, but younger women can look to Barcelona-based Instagram influencer Aida Domenech for eyeliner inspo. Aida’s signature look is a basic wing with liquid eyeliner. The best part of this look is that it’s simple yet elegant. It never goes out of style, and you can find hundreds of tutorials on how to apply the perfect wing.
Some great liquid eyeliners include the KVD Beauty Tattoo Liner and the Maybelline Hyper Easy Waterproof Liquid Liner in “Pitch Black” is a great drugstore option.
Embrace Your Natural Hair Texture
Spanish women are known for embracing their natural beauty, and the same goes for their hair. We all know that straighteners and curling irons are bad for our hair, so why not take the Spanish approach and embrace your hair’s natural texture?
Stay Hydrated for Glowing Skin
The key to hydrated skin is to drink plenty of water, and Spanish women take this seriously. One trick is to drink at least one glass of warm water to stimulate blood circulation, which can brighten your skin.
Besides drinking plenty of water, it’s also important to use products that hydrate the skin. Some of my favorites are the Evian Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray (yes, it’s literally water in an aerosol can, and it feels marvelous on the skin) and the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream.
Use Products with Sea Salt
Spain is famous for many beautiful things, one of them being its beautiful beaches. Spanish women have made the best of their proximity to the sea by embracing products with sea salt, specifically face and body cleansers. Natural sea salt is packed with many skin-loving benefits: it detoxifies the skin, it balances the skin’s natural pH levels, it reduces oil production while hydrating, it has minerals magnesium, calcium, and potassium, it aids healing, and it absorbs toxins, including acne-causing bacteria.
Popular cleansers with sea salt include the Hempz Pink Pomelo & Himalayan Sea Salt Foaming Body Wash and the VitaminSea.beauty Sea Salt & Coconut Gentle & Brightening Face Scrub. Don’t be afraid to explore sea salt products for your hair like the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray for natural beachy looking waves.
Spanish women often hold themselves to the highest standard of beauty, but it’s not unattainable for the average woman to recreate at home or buy at our local drugstore or Sephora. It’s easy to embrace our natural beauty like Spanish women do, so why not try it out?
