Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Chiseled Cheekbones

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

I have no cheekbones…like, at all. How do I create the illusion of them with makeup? If this helps, I have a long face, moderate/small facial features and red undertones w/ a medium-brown complexion. Thanks!

-Melonie

cheekbones Makeup Mondays With Mario: Chiseled CheekbonesHi Melonie,

Thanks for visiting!

To create the illusion of cheekbones, you will need a few products. This is one of my favorite “steps” in a makeup application because it looks great on almost every face. Start out using a matte bronzer a few shades darker than your skin. Apply the bronzer with a brush onto the hollows of your cheeks blending towards the center of the ear. Sweep a highlighter (a golden sheer, shimmery shade) right above the bronzer or on top of the cheekbone. The area with the highlight will pop out and the hollows will appear deeper, creating the illusion of cheekbones. To prevent a ruddy or messy look on the skin, be sure to powder first.

xo,
Mario

E! News-worthy Interview: Giuliana Rancic Q&A

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Fashion, Interview | Leave a comment

GR E! News worthy Interview: Giuliana Rancic Q&AAs you probably know, I follow celebrities like it’s my J-O-B. As such, E! News is must see TV in my house; Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I have an understanding that he is not allowed to touch the television remote between 7 and 7:30pm. So you can imagine how thrilled I when I recently got the chance to chat up Giuliana Rancic!

Giuliana has been anchor and managing editor of E! News since January 2005; and since that time, viewership has risen over 50 percent! In addition to her news anchoring duties, she often hosts red carpet events like the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. The award-winning journalist also stars in the Style Network’s real-life romantic comedy Giuliana & Bill, which follows Giuliana and her husband Bill as they juggle high-profile careers and marriage while living apart on opposite coasts.

Giuliana, quite literally, lives in makeup and designer duds – which makes her the perfect candidate for a Spoiled Pretty profile. Read on for her favorite fashion finds and how she always manages to always look so cute and camera ready…

SP: When did your fascination with fashion and beauty begin?
GR:
I have loved makeup since I was a little girl. I come from a stylish Italian family so we were allowed to wear makeup at a very young age. I would say I started wearing makeup in 7th grade and I have loved fashion since I was about 10 years old.

Giuliana+Rancic+makeup E! News worthy Interview: Giuliana Rancic Q&ASP: What is your everyday beauty routine?
GR:
I shoot every day, all year round, so I wear makeup from 8am to 10 pm at night. 14 hours straight!!! So my cleansing regimen is super important to me. In the morning, I wash my face with Patricia Wexler, MD Universal Cleansing Lotion. It is very mild and perfect for the morning. I use her moisturizer as well. It gives my skin a dewy and fresh look. At night I use DDF Blemish Cleansing Foam to wash off my makeup and keep my skin clear thanks to it’s small dose of salicylic acid. I moisturize with Patricia Wexler’s PM cream and use her eye cream as well. Then I put on ChapStick Fresh Effects before I go to bed to moisturize my lips. I am obsessed with Patricia Wexler’s products and I do not endorse her in any way. In fact, I have never met or spoken to her in my life but I would love to so I can thank her for making my skin look so darn great!

As for makeup, I start with L’Oreal True Match Foundation. I use Lorac Blush/Bronzer in Hot & Spicy for a great glow. Then I line my lips with MAC liner and use ChapStick Fresh Effects Green Tea Mint before my lipgloss as the perfect base. It tingles while it moisturizes so I love using it.

SP: What are the five beauty products that you can’t live without right now?
GR:
I always have my Lorac bronzing blush for a nice glow and my ChapStick Fresh Effects. I love the tingle it gives me while it moisturizes my lips. I can’t have chapped lips on the red carpet when I’m standing 6 inches from a celebs face so I love this product because it gives me an instant beauty boost and is an amazing base for lip gloss and lipstick. I love my Patricia Wexler, MD Universal Cleansing Lotion and Moisturizer to give me great skin. I am also loving fake lashes right now. I use Andrea or Ardell from the drugstore. I have learned how to put them on perfectly so now it only takes me a few minutes and gives me amazing eyes. Fake lashes are the secret to a gorgeous eye!

Giuliana+Rancic+Makeup+Bag E! News worthy Interview: Giuliana Rancic Q&A

SP: What is your signature fragrance?
GR:
My signature scent is Quelques Fleur. I’ve worn it since I was in high school. It’s a classic scent that I have never gotten tired of. My fragrance philosophy is to look for scents that are clean. Guys don’t like anything too floral or bold. They love a girl to smell like she just walked out of the shower- clean and fresh. I spray it all over as well as my hair to make it smell great when Bill comes in for a hug.

SP: What was your most embarrassing fashion or beauty moment?
GR:
The zipper on my dress broke minutes before I was to walk out to the Oscar red carpet two years ago! Thankfully, my backup dress was in my stylist’s car on the way back to the designer, so he grabbed it and I did a quick swap.

SP: How has your look evolved over the years?
GR:
I constantly change my hair color…platinum blonde, dark brown, warm brown, honey blond…I love changing my hair color every year. It keeps things interesting.

Giuliana+Rancic+Fashion E! News worthy Interview: Giuliana Rancic Q&ASP: What fashion trends are you loving and embracing right now?
GR:
I just bought a few men’s blazers in black and navy blue. They are by MM Couture. Very affordable and super stylish. I’ve been wearing them with a simple neon or bright t-shirt over super tight LNA stretch pants and my new above the knee Balenciaga black leather boots. They are equestrian style with a four inch heel and are very fitted to the leg and tall. So hot!!! I just got two tight leather motorcycle jackets, one in black and one in turquoise from the clothing company Secret Circus out of London. Love!

SP: What tips do you have for women who want star style on a budget?
GR:
Shop at H&M, Forever 21 and Express. There is no reason to spend a lot of money on trendy items.

SP: What are three fashion accessories every woman should own?
GR:
Tall leather black boots, a great trench coat, and a big, long scarf.

SP: Current handbag obsession?
GR:
I love my new gray woven leather Cole Haan bag. It just came out and it’s the perfect size.

SP: If you could only use one brand of makeup for life, which would it be?
GR:
MAC. Most of my makeup is from MAC. I wear makeup for up to 14 hours a day and MAC stays on my skin the longest.

SP: What’s the best beauty tip/secret you’ve ever heard?
GR:
Moisturize! My mother is in her late 60s and looks 50! She has moisturized her entire body, especially her face, every day of her life and it shows!

Watch Giuliana Rancic on E! News, weeknights at 7 and 11:30pm. She’s also very active on Twitter…follow her tweets at twitter.com/GiulianaRancic.

Thanks for such a fun and informative interview, Giuliana. See you at 7!

Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials – Plus A Giveaway!

cold+weather+woman Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

The cold weather hit Philly earlier than I had expected. So this weekend, I switched out the contents of my makeup bag (I don’t even want to say how many products I had crammed in there…I’m embarrassed) and replaced them with the following cold weather beauty essentials.

aveda+hand+relief Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Last week, it was cold and wet in my neck of the woods. It’s not even November yet, and my hands are crack-a-lackin’. So I retired my summer hand lotion, and pulled out the heavy artillery…Aveda’s Hand Relief. If this isn’t the best hand lotion on the market, I don’t know what is. It hydrates and soothes even severely dry hands – without leaving them greasy or sticky. And the citrusy scent is a nice pick-me-up. If you’ve never tried Hand Relief, now is the best time to buy. The Pink Ribbon special value tube has 7% more product than the regular size, and Aveda will donate $4 from each purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

clear+nail+polish Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Clear Nail Polish is another cold weather essential I highly suggeststashing in your makeup bag. Not only does it protect your polish against the elements and extend the life of your mani, it’s also great for stopping stocking runs and rips in their tracks.

donna+karan+cashmere+mist+deodorant Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Remember how I told you that I carried a mini tube of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant in my purse this past summer? Well, it’s still there. And that’s where it’s gonna stay this season. Yes, I realize that the mercury is falling – but layered clothing combined with co-workers who like to jack up the thermostat can have you smelling quite ripe, if you’re not prepared. I am…are you?

carmex+moisture+plus Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Chapped lips are the bane of my existence. I hate how they look, how they feel, and how they’re the prelude to a bleeding, peeling, jacked up mess of a mouth. Preventing chapped lips doesn’t have to cost a fortune, as is evidenced by one of my new cold weather beauty finds – Carmex Moisture Plus. It moisturizes with Vitamin E, Aloe, and Shea butter and protects your pucker with SPF 15. I love the vanilla menthol scent and the fact that, despite the sun protection, I don’t feel like I’m eating sunscreen if I lick my lips. The slant tip applicator also ups the fab factor.

stila+convertible+color Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Stila Convertible Color is a makeup bag must have year-round, but I always fall a little deeper in love when it gets colder and the summer glow fades from my face. This versatile bestseller brightens cheeks and lips with creamy, translucent color. If your skin tends to dry out during the colder months, you’ll love the formula – and how it gives your complexion a lit from within, realistic glow. I use Poppy to give my cheeks a pop of color – for a straight from the slopes, snow bunny look.

This post was sponsored by Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm. Thanks to them, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card and a one year supply of Carmex Moisture Plus samples! To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment by Wednesday, October 28th at midnight – and tell me one of your favorite cold weather beauty products.

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Dark Circles & Smoky Eyes

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

So without further ado…do your thang, Mario!

Hi Mario,

I have a question and would like some advice on my make-up. OK… I naturally have dark circles around my eyes and I love the smokey eye look. However whenever I’ve tried it, it makes my circles appear darker. Is there something I can do about it so that I can achieve the look that I’m wanting or is that something I can’t accomplish because of my imperfections? -LaJuan

sephora+smoky+eye Makeup Mondays With Mario: Dark Circles & Smoky EyesDear LaJuan,

It seems to me that the problem you’re having has to do with covering up the dark circles around your eyes, or it could the technique you’re using when you do the eye makeup. If done correctly, a smokey eye should not make your “circles” appear darker. Here’s what you should do. Start out by applying an eye shadow base or primer to the lid. You can also use your concealer or foundation for this (a shade or two lighter then your skin would be best). Follow with some loose powder to set the base. Now you can go ahead and give yourself a smokey eye which ever way that you prefer. After the lids are done, you now want to clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe to get rid of all the eyeshadow that most likely fell. That could be why it looks more dark to you. Once the under eye area is clean, apply your concealer, blend with a sponge and finish by setting it with a translucent loose powder. This will also prevent the liner along the lower lash line from smudging. icon wink Makeup Mondays With Mario: Dark Circles & Smoky Eyes

Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: MacGyver-ish Beauty Tips

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips | Leave a comment

Beauty+Bloggerati+Spotlight Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: MacGyver ish Beauty Tips

macgyver Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: MacGyver ish Beauty TipsLast week, as I removed pills from a sweater using a Schick Quattro razor, I started thinking about alternate uses for everyday beauty products. So I called on my fellow Beauty Bloggerati to share their MacGyver-ish beauty tips. Enjoy!

In a pinch, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion works as an eye makeup remover. It even takes off mascara. -Karen, Makeup and Beauty Blog

I use a dry toothbrush to exfoliate snaggy, dry lips. -Amber, Beauty Blogging Junkie

I sometimes use my hair conditioner as a shaving-cream stand-in. A rich conditioner can moisturize and protect skin as well as your favorite shaving cream in a pinch, like when traveling! -Tammy, A Mom In Red High Heels

To keep my cuticles looking great when I don’t have my favorite Solar Oil on hand, I use Chapstick or lip balm to moisturize them. -Erika, Makeup Bag

gauze+pads Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: MacGyver ish Beauty TipsGauze pads work better than cotton balls (or rounds) to remove polish. The textured surface grabs polish so it slides right off and you won’t be left picking off cotton ball fibers! -Erika, Makeup Bag

A black Sharpie is the best quick fix for random gray hairs that seem to come out of nowhere! -Erika, Makeup Bag

For those days when I get really drastic breakouts I soak cotton rounds in warm water and then dip them in baking soda. I then lay the pads flat on my ace for about 10 min. The effect of the baking soda brings all of the zitty yuckiness to the surface and then I take sterile lance and pop the zit. Its a safe way to get rid of pimples on your face and it doesn’t leave any scarring. -Lisa, These Lips Are Made For Glossin’

I’ll do the old lipstick as blush trick – usually when I notice I’m looking deathly pale and I’m out running around to meetings/errands. I don’t usually carry blush in my purse, but I always have lipstick or gloss. I dab a bit on the apples of my cheeks and blend. – Anne, The Jet Set Girls

I love to create my own tinted moisturizer by mixing a pinch of mineral foundation, a drop of makeup primer, and a dime size amount of heavy-duty sunscreen. Perfect for days outside! -Bailey, Makeover Momma

When I really need to blot my skin, I grab a piece of a toilet seat cover from the nearest bathroom (or sometimes tissue paper from a present), and use that to soak up any oil. -Bailey, Makeover Momma

I love applying a bit of shimmer cream lotion to my legs and arms to highlight my skin, but it can also be perfect to highlight your brow bone, cheekbones and even lips in a pinch. I also smooth the residue over the ends of my hair, because it tames flyways, makes hair smooth and gives it a sneaky dose of shine. -Bailey, Makeover Momma

vaseline Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: MacGyver ish Beauty TipsI use Vaseline on my feet before bed. I like to slather it on my heels and then put some really thick socks on. It works better than most foot creams I’ve tried…and I’ve tried a lot! -Carla, Product Girl

I take the mascara a step further and use one closer to my brow color. It beefs up sparse brows, covers grays if you have them, and keeps them in line. The only caution is to use a waterproof. You don’t want to be caught in the rain and have your brows wash off! -Jen, Beyond Beauty Basics

L’Occitane’s shea butter hand cream, cuticle cream, conditioner on ends of hair, tame flyaway hair when dry. -Hope, The Jet Set Girls
