Honoring Icons of Style 

By Mercedes Sanchez

lili estefan icons of style As a Latina from the States, the chances you read Vanidades, an international, Spanish-language magazine, are slim to none. But I’m sure your mom or aunts are avid readers. Am I right?! But that’s why I’m here: To bring parts of the two worlds together.

I was at the annual Vanidades Icons of Style event honoring Carolina Herrera, renowned designers Ruben and Isabel Toledo,  Nacho Figueras, Christian Cota and emerging designers Gabriela Moya and Sandra Beltran– thanks to CoverGirl and Pantene who invited me as their official beauty correspondent.

We started the day on set with makeup artist Franz Muñoz who gave me what I think was the best smokey eye I’ve had yet. Take a look at our video recap below where we interview TV Personality Lili Estefan (top) who wore a gorgeous, emerald gown by Angel Sanchez.

Muñoz created the same look on both Lili and me using the following CoverGirl products: Eye Enhancers 3Kit in 119 Dazzling Metallics, Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Violet and LashBlast Volume Mascara.

There are two videos below — one with Pantene, and the other with CoverGirl.
