    Face it: Dinner and a movie is sooo overdone…and, in case you didn't already know it, men aren't exactly loving the whole chick flick and candlelight dinner thing. We're not saying you have to sit through a 12-inning baseball game or chug down cervezas with his amigos. We say the best way to up the fun and lower the pressure for both of you is to try guy-approved-and either free or inexpensive-dates you can both enjoy. Check these out.

  • Having a flawless, "airbrushed" look is easier than you think! In this video blog I will show you my favorite system, and how to expertly apply makeup using an airbrush kit.

    By Charleen Gonzalez for Shine Latina

    Why choose airbrush?

    Airbrushing creates a perfect makeup finish

    Airbrushing creates a perfect makeup finish



    The number one question I am asked as a makeup artist is "how do I find the right foundation color for my skin?" This is a tricky subject as all skin colors are unique, and it's hard to find the exact shade that's right for you. This is especially difficult for Latinas with olive complexions trying to find the right tonality in a sea of alabaster and ivory. What makes airbrush foundation an excellent choice, beyond giving your makeup a flawless finish, is the fact that you can mix different foundation colors to get the precise match for your skin. The airbrush system I chose is from Dinair, and I couldn't be happier with it. With Dinair you get to choose your foundation shade from a range of options, plus they offer blush, bronzer, eyeshadow shades, and ev

    I'm usually the bartender of every party even when it's not at my house. Somehow I always end up taking over the making of the drinks at gatherings, reunions and even at a friend's bar. My amigos call me the "frustrated bartender", but I disagree because I enjoy doing it only at social events. Before I make a drink I always open the fridge to see what ingredients I can mix into a refreshing and delicious cocktail.

    Try this drink with my tequila guacamole for an all-Mexican night.

    Coming back from a weekend getaway in Mexico I stopped at the duty free and sampled an exquisite mango liquor. It was sweet, thick and tasted like real mango juice. The store attendant recommended drinking it on the rocks but in my mind I already had a recipe. I couldn't wait to get home and try out my new invention. The same night, when I finally arrived home, I opened the fridge and found some other ingredients that would blend well with my drink. Cointreau, mezc

    I always thought the best way to make carne asada (or grilled steak) was my dad's way: simple, flavorful

    and tender. He used to grill every Sunday and on special family gatherings. My uncles always wondered what secret ingredients he used on the meat that made it so delicious. He always insisted that sea salt was the only item he needed to make his churrasco taste good. Besides purchasing good quality meat, he grilled only on wood or real charcoal without using any lighter fluid to start the fire. He also insisted on waiting until the flames touched the metal grid before placing the steaks on the grill, and then he'd turn each piece only once.

    Delight your guests with my shrimp ceviche on avocado before enjoying this great carne asada.

    About a month ago, I traveled with my best friend to Los Angeles, and her family received us with a grill-full of Mexican-style carne asada. I wanted to help out in the kitchen, so I asked my friend's dad i

    Avocado shrimp ceviche

    Avocado shrimp ceviche

    No matter what beach you visit in South America, you'll always find a random guy that comes to sell you fresh ceviche de camarones (or shrimp ceviche). This type of dish is pretty much an altered version of the classic shrimp cocktail, except that the shrimp gets bathed in loads of onions, tomatoes, ketchup, lime with a touch of cilantro. It is definitely the perfect snack to enjoy under the sun while drinking an iced cold beer.

    My mother, who is an amazing cook, makes her own version of the shrimp ceviche and adds avocado to it. Avocado perfectly balances the acidity of the lime when combined with the shrimp and tomato flavors. Trying to figure out a creative way to serve her ceviche, she decided to use half of an avocado as the serving dish. It makes for a beautiful presentation, and you get to enjoy a slice of avocado with every bite. My uncle loves my Mom's ceviche, and every time he comes around she knows she has to prepare her famous v
