Swarthy skin, red lips and expressive eyes - this is how many people imagine Mexican women. Is it really so?

Let's talk about Mexican make-up features and share step-by-step instructions that will help you feel like a Mexican at least for a while. By the way, many elements of this look are reminiscent of the Spanish makeup that we have already talked about.

Characteristic features of Mexican makeup

Face tone

In general, the make-up of Mexican women cannot be called specific. Girls in Mexico also aim for an even skin tone, use concealer to cover under-eye circles, and lightly contour with a creamy concealer.

However, there is one feature that betrays the Mexican - a generous blush. As a rule, girls in Mexico prefer pink or red blush - these shades are more noticeable on swarthy skin. By the way, this Mexican make-up is similar to traditional Russian.


Despite the love of Mexican women for well-pigmented products and bright shades, the fashion for naturalness is not alien to them. Eyebrows they prefer to emphasize with a pencil, and then fix with gel.


Typical eye makeup in Mexico includes matte coffee shadows in the outer corner of the eye, a slight emphasis on the crease of the eyelid, arrows and well-painted lashes.


If Mexican women need to choose an accent in makeup, then most likely they will prefer bright lips. Juicy red lipstick is a make-up classic in Mexico. Especially when it comes to make-up for a special occasion.

Mexican Latin Party Makeup

If you are going to a party in Latin American style, you can not skimp on accents and make a truly colorful make-up. Indeed, in this case, even sweeping arrows paired with expressive red lips will be appropriate.

If you want to complement the image with an unusual detail that will be in harmony with the rest of the elements, make a gradient lip makeup in red-wine tones. We talked about this technique in detail in this tutorial video.

Mexican everyday makeup

Do you want a casual Mexican makeover? Avoid red lipstick. Replace it with nude or caramel. But natural eyebrows and eye makeup with matte shadows, an emphasis on the crease and neat arrows are fine.

If you still want to make makeup with bright lips, then it is better to choose a product with a translucent texture.

Mexican Women's Beauty Secrets

  • Women in Mexico are famous for their beautiful tans. However, it is not only the heat and the scorching sun that is worth giving thanks. The secret is in the means proven by generations, which they make on their own. For example, a mixture of lemon juice and Mexican sugar is used as a hand scrub. A face cream is often replaced with a mixture of mashed banana and strawberries.

  • But no means and makeup artists will help if you do not protect the skin from the hot sun. That is why girls in this country always carry sunscreen with them (even if they are not going to the beach). And foundations are also preferred with SPF. Many people use thermal water to refresh their skin throughout the day.
