Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true.

Alicia Keys World Series Makeup

alicia+keys+world+series+2009 Alicia Keys World Series MakeupTo 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:

* Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer in Beige 2 and Mary Kay Concealer in Beige 2 to get Alicia’s beautiful face looking flawless
* Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Bold Berry and Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powder in Dessert Sun to give Alicia’s cheeks a glowing, natural look
* Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Pink Melon and Mary Kay NouriShine Lip Gloss in Pink Diamonds to attain the desired effect on the focal point of the entire look – Alicia’s lips
* Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Raisin on Alicia’s eyes to help accentuate Alicia’s stunning features and natural beauty

The overall affect was a hip hop beauty home run.

It’s rare that I see Taraji P. Henson looking less than on point. So I was befuddled when I saw this recent photo from the 13th Annual Hollywood Film Festival Awards Gala.

Taraji needs to fire her makeup artist, stat, for letting her leave the house without wiping away the excess powder under her eyes. Of course, some of the blame lies with Taraji, for not consulting a mirror before walking the red carpet.

Lipstick on your teeth, I can understand. But there is no excuse for a makeup mistake like this.

My pal, celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, has a great new column over on his blog. Every day, he takes readers to beauty school – sharing ingenious beauty tips and product recommendations.

Sephora+Nano+Eyeliner Mario Dedivanovics TWIPs of the Day

For a precise and very defined crease, Mario suggests using Sephora’s Nano Eyeliner to draw a line right on or under the crease. With a small brush, blend the line going up and/or out. Keep it in place with a touch of translucent powder.

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!

Kristen Stewart is Allure Magazine’s November 2009 Cover Girl

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | Leave a comment

Allure+Magazine+November+2009+Cover+Kristen+Stewart Kristen Stewart is Allure Magazines November 2009 Cover GirlTwilight star Kristen Stewart is Allure‘s latest cover girl. The November 2009 issue hits NY/LA newsstands on October 13th and everywhere else October 20th.

Spoiled Pretty’s got a little sneak peek at the pages of the new issue.

Go behind the scenes at Kristen’s cover shoot at the Santa Monica Pier.

See Kristen’s style transformation throughout the years.

Kristen on her role as Bella in the Twilight saga:
“You’re so very much with Bella. You’re so in her shoes that it’s a vicarious experience. It’s addictive.”

On her refusal to play by the conventional Hollywood rules:
I go outside, and I’m wearing a funky T-shirt and my hair is dirty, and people say, ‘What’s wrong with her? She needs to invest in a hairbrush.’”

“I’m like, Don’t you get it? I’m not that girl! Like, I never was that girl. It’s not like I was really clean-cut last year.”

This Hollywood actress sometimes has trouble expressing her true feelings when speaking with the media:
“I spend so much of my time guarding against sounding insincere about something that I would die for.”

“Maybe I’m overcompensating….I care so much. And it gets reported as the opposite. And even seeing this [interview], they’ll be like, Oh, she’s trying to let us know…”

Kristen is not an actress who has to worry about her weight:
“I don’t exercise. I’m skinny fat. I worry about being too skinny.”
