For last month’s Maxim Hot 100 party, Kim Kardashian rocked gorge emerald eyes. On his blog, Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, posts about the products he used to create the look.
Hey guys… For the Maxim Hot 100 event, Kim wore an all while dress and the hair was pulled back so I definitely wanted to use a little bit of color on her eyes and green is my favorite color. I really like how this look came out on her and it photographed beautifully. When using a color on the eyes, keep the cheeks and lips soft and pretty. Here’s how to get the face…
Since I hit puberty, I’ve been cursed with hair bumps on my legs. Because the hair on my legs is coarse and grows in a curly pattern, sometimes as the hair grows out, it curls back under the skin into the same follicle. And because the hair is trapped under the skin, even after I shave, I still have many unsightly ingrown hairs.
The condition isn’t physically painful, like razor bumps; but it is emotionally painful, as I’ve spent many years hiding this condition beneath long skirts and pants – even during the dog days of summer.
For half of my life, I’ve had a serious case of leg envy. Every time I see a woman with silky smooth gams, I selfishly hope that she silently suffers from stretch marks, bacne or some other embarrassing ailment that isn’t apparently obvious. It just isn’t fair!
I’ve tried a million and one products and techniques to solve the problem…and while I’ve yet to discover a panacea, I have found a temporary solution. (more…)
Last night, Jerrod Blandino, creator of Too Faced Cosmetics, appeared on The Daily 10 – sharing tips to meltproof your makeup. Most of the tricks were somewhat obvious (like wearing waterproof mascara), but one was absolutely genius:
To keep perspiration from forming along the hairline, mix a small amount of clear antiperspirant with liquid foundation and apply.
The brows are filled in with Cork by MAC. On the lids I used Stars N’ Rockets by MAC. In the crease, outer corners and under the eye, I used Deep Truth – also by MAC. Right below the Deep Truth shadow, I blended Creme de Violet shadow (a lighter shimmery purple, MAC) all the way down to the cheek bones. I also swept a bit of it on the brow bone. The liner on the top is a very pigmented black liquid that I blended myself from Giella Cosmetics. In the inner rim of the eye, I used the black Powerpoint pencil from MAC and ALOT of mascara – Bad Gal mascara by Benefit. For this shoot, my assistant and I cut up a bunch of different lashes and I placed them in pieces all over the lash line so I wouldn’t be able to tell you the brand or style type.
