Get The Look: Kim Kardashian at the Spike TV Video Game Awards

kim+kardashian+spike+tv+awards Get The Look: Kim Kardashian at the Spike TV Video Game Awards
Troy Jensen is the man behind Kim Kardashian’s 70’s inspired makeup at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. The makeup artist/photographer blogs, “Metallic gold and intense black-lined eyes with a soft pale pink mouth complimented her dress. I love creating new looks with Kim. She has a fantastic face to work on. In earlier events, I tried to keep it fresh and sexy but this time, I wanted to give Kim a red-carpet look reminiscent of early 1970’s Cher.”

To create the look, Jensen used Revlon products. He shares the following tip for creating the perfect 70s sheer: “Choose a lip shade one or two shades brighter than your own in a salmon, rose, or raspberry pink lipstick. Pat on with your fingertips then blot with a tissue. Top with sheer gold lip gloss.”

Whatcha think of Kimmy’s look? Can you dig it?

Spoiled Pretty Exclusive: How To Replicate Robert Pattinson’s Bloodthirsty, Berry Lips in Twilight – Straight From Movie’s Head Makeup Artist!

twilight+edward+wallpaper Spoiled Pretty Exclusive: How To Replicate Robert Pattinsons Bloodthirsty, Berry Lips in Twilight – Straight From Movies Head Makeup Artist!
The day after Thanksgiving, Amber and I met for lunch at The Cheesecake Factory then meandered around the Willow Grove Mall – killing time before a 4:30pm showing of Twilight. To say that we’re a wee bit obsessed with Twilight is a wee bit of an understatement. That afternoon, I was seeing the movie for the second time…and Amber had officially “blown her entire allowance” seeing Twilight FOUR times in one week.

benefit+ms+behavin Spoiled Pretty Exclusive: How To Replicate Robert Pattinsons Bloodthirsty, Berry Lips in Twilight – Straight From Movies Head Makeup Artist!Before leaving the mall and heading to the movie theater, we made a pit stop in Sephora – as beauty bloggers are wont to do when they congregate. We had heard that Twilight’s makeup artist used Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin (mulberry glaze) on Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the film – and also on Edward’s film family. So Amber swiped some on, in an attempt to replicate Edward’s vampy lip. She got a kick out of wearing it to the movie, knowing that Robert Pattinson’s lips would be dressed in the same shade.

Ms. Behavin looked gorge on Amber, but something was different between her lips and those of the Twilight vampires. Amber’s lips were much glossier. So for a week, the question weighed on me as I tried to figure out how the movie’s makeup department managed to make the glossy lipstick look like a matte stain.

This weekend, I got my answer – straight from Jeanne Van Phue, Twilight‘s head makeup artist!!!

What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!

pop+beauty+cat+eyes What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!
I’m no pro makeup artist. But there’s one beauty technique that I’ve got down pat – the elusive cat eye. It requires patience and a steady paw…but once you put in a little practice, a fierce fe-lined eye isn’t far off.

But what if practice doesn’t make perfect? What if your finished product is more Amy (Winehouse) than Angelina (Jolie)? Don’t claw your eyes out just yet. POP Beauty has just the product to produce a purr-fect cat eye.

POP Beauty Cat Eyes is a uniquely slanted eye crayon. Simply press it into the skin and follow the lash line – and it makes the perfect flick at the end, which is key to perfecting the look.
Go from “I don’t know how” to MEOW!

I was particularly impressed by how effortless it was to create a cat eye with this liner. The creamy texture of the crayon simply glides across the skin. And no more worrying about the uniformity of the wings at the outer corner of the eyes…with Cat Eyes, they’re a perfect match – every time.

Nicole+Richie+Cat+Eye What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!
Cat Eyes isn’t deeply pigmented, so if you’re looking to create a Nicole Ritchie-esque eye (I‘m obsessed), here’s what I recommend:

Nicole+Richie+Cat+Eye+Closeup What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!* prep the lid with a primer
* Line the eye with Cat Eyes
* Trace over the line with a liquid liner
* Apply two coats of your favorite volumizing mascara

POP Beauty Cat Eyes comes in three colors (Black Onyx, Black Dahlia, and Black Olive) and is available at Sephora, amazon.com, dermstore.com, and popbeauty.co.uk.

Get Gisele’s Fall Favorites for $20

gisele+max+factor Get Giseles Fall Favorites for $20
As you may know, Gisele Bundchen is the new face of MAX Factor and to kick off this partnership, for a limited time only, MAX Factor is running a pretty cool promotion including all of Gisele’s favorite MAX Factor products.

The exclusive package includes:
· Lipfinity 3D Lipcolor in 80’s Pink
· MAXeye Liner in Fresh Coffee
· Vivid Impact Eye Shadow in Domino Effect
· Volume Couture in Black Brown

These four products can be purchased as a bundle from maxfactor.com at 50% off retail price – with a complementary makeup bag and free shipping! The cost is only $20 (plus tax)!

To achieve the Gisele look, you obv need the tools (see aforementioned products). But you also need the technique…application is a key factor. Get it? Factor?!? I should just quit this blog and start doing standup.

Here are a few pro tips, courtesy of MAX Factor celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey:

For a daytime high impact eye:
· Start by lining the upper and lower lash lines with MAXeye Liner in Fresh Coffee. Dot the eye liner in the inner lash lines to create high impact and high drama. Use your finger to smudge the liner on the upper and lower lash lines to create a smoldering effect. Don’t worry about smudging the liner too much; a little bit of “messiness” creates a sexier eye.

· Liven up lashes by applying one coat of Lash Perfection Volume Couture Mascara in Black Brown on the upper and lower lashes.

For a smoky eye:
· For a twist on the smoky-eye, create a look that’s all your own by blending your favorite shades of shadow to create a customized hybrid. Shades I have found universally flattering are grays and lavenders.

· Start by mixing together the charcoal colored end of Vivid Impact Eye Shadows in Domino Effect with the purple shade in Vivid Impact Eye Shadows Sultry Sage for a smoky plum shade. Using an eye shadow brush, work the shadow all the way from the lash line to the brow bone, blending the pigment with your finger towards when nearing the brow to create a dramatic eye look.

· Liven up lashes by generously applying Lash Perfection Volume Couture Mascara on the upper and lower lashes.

· Keep the face flawless and lip simple so as not to overpower the vivid eye: Apply ColorGenius Pressed Powder, in a shade that compliments your skin tone, to minimize any shininess. If you desire a little extra color, work a light blush into the cheeks such as ColorGenius Pressed Powder in Peaches. Circle the product with a large round brush onto the apples of the cheeks and brush up towards the temples.

· Finish with a light pink gloss, such as MAXalicious Gloss in First Kiss for barely-there glossy lips.

For a bright pink lip:
· For a beautiful and eye catching look for day and night, try using Lipfinity 3D in 80s Pink with just two coats of mascara, such as Lash Perfection Volume Couture Mascara in Black Brown, on curled lashes. This creates sophisticated beauty looks with not a lot of makeup.

· In the Fall and Winter, a bold lip hue can brighten your complexion instantly!

Line Your Eyes With A Match? Spritz Hairspray On Your Face?

kohl+rimmed+eyes Line Your Eyes With A Match? Spritz Hairspray On Your Face?Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff dips a long, previously lit match in water and uses it to line the eye. “It’s chalky and black, so you get these amazing kohl-rimmed eyes, just like the ancient Egyptians had.”

Fekkai hairstylist Adir Abergel is known to mix a pinch of Kosher salt with a few drops of water, which he adds to leave -in conditioner. “It’ll give you the beachy waves you’ve always wanted,” he says.

And according to Fiona Stiles, celebrity and editorial makeup artist, hairspray not only holds hair in place…it also keeps makeup intact. Holding the can at arm’s length, spritz a fine mist on your finished face (close your eyes first). Makeup won’t melt, says Stiles. Test a spot first to make sure you’re not allergic, and remember to take it off before bed.

Are you tempted to try any of these beauty home remedies?
