I have a foundation that I love, but it seems to get on everything! I work in an office and tend to pass around papers that have brown smudges on them whenever I wear that foundation. Is there anything I can do to keep the foundation on my face and not on everything else? -Khalia Khalia,
I can totally sympathize with you, as someone that constantly gets makeup “spots” on just about everything. Here’s how to keep your foundation on your face and off the paper work:
Try using a oil free moisturizer if you aren’t already. Makeup that smears off the skin easily probably isn’t being set well. With a velour powder puff, set your makeup by pressing translucent loose powder all over face after foundation. If this doesn’t help, you can try a makeup sealer. They come in spray bottles and help keep everything in place. Lastly and most important – try to stop touching your face! If you didn’t touch your face, your hands wouldn’t get makeup on them. It’s a hard habit to break, but not impossible.
Hope this helps you out. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!xo, MarioGot a question for Mario? Email your makeup and skin care queries to firstname.lastname@example.org, and check back next Monday to read Mario’s expert advice!
I love your work and wanted to ask you how to create the perfect cat eye with liquid eyeliner since I have shaky hands it has been impossible for me!! Lots of love!
Creating a great cat eye with liquid liner can be challenging but with a little practice, I’m certain you can perfect it!
Here’s how you should do it. Look into a mirror and tilt your head up a bit so that the lashline (where liner will go) isn’t touching the crease of the eye. Gently stretch your eye outward to prevent blinking. Start lining the outer corner first, going towards the inner corner. Make sure that the line gets thinner towards the inner corners. Now go back to the outter corner and wing the liner out and up a bit for the cat eye effect. If you mess up, wipe the corners with a Q-tip and try again. Good luck, gorgeous!

To get the ball rolling for Game Two of the World Series in the Bronx, Alicia Keys stepped up to the plate with Jay-Z, hitting it out of the park with an “Empire State of Mind” tribute to New York and the Yankees.
Ashunta says, “The inspiration behind Alicia’s look was retro 1980s hip hop Harlem meets Brooklyn – when matching lip color to clothing color was very popular. The eyes were smoldering and the skin bronzed to accent the amazing lip color.”
Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created a glam look for the superstar which she achieved with the help of some favorite Mary Kay products. To create Alicia’s all-star look, Ashunta Sheriff used:
