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?

Brace yourselves, Twilighters. Rob Pattinson just cut his hair.

Okay…deep breaths…

robert+pattinson+haircut Breaking News: Rob Pattinson Cut His Hair
No statement has been released about the reasons behind the chop. But Spoiled Pretty speculates that the haircut is just the shy star’s attempt at being a little less conspicuous. Or carpal tunnel set in after months of clawing his matted mane out of his face.

Thoughts on Rob’s new do?

For Best Use Of Hair Accessories, The Award Goes To Rihanna

For best use of hair accessories, the award goes to Rihanna. RiRi would like to thank the academy…Star Academy, that is.

rhinestone+hair+pins For Best Use Of Hair Accessories, The Award Goes To RihannaOn Friday night’s season finale of the French singing competition, Rihanna accessorized her faux hawk with a halo of Swarovski crystal hair pins.

The looks that Rihanna (or her stylist) comes up with boggles the mind.

You don’t need a superstar budget to recreate this look. These rhinestone hair pins (above left) are only $20 for a set of six at Beautiful Bridal (I purchased my bridal tiara via this online retailer and was beyond pleased).

Rihanna Fierce

Last night, my sis emailed me the link to Rihanna’s Rehab video. After watching it, I was like, “Sasha who? Beyonce can wear all the Gareth Pugh she wants to…this girl is FIERCE.”

I have to admit that the music vid plot lacks imagination. Truthfully, I could have written a better script. But who needs a story when you have Miss RiRi and Timberlake steaming up the desert? And her makeup…flawless! It don’t get no better than the kohl-rimmed eye/crimson lip combo she sports in this video.

Jimeale New York Giveaway!

ossington Jimeale New York Giveaway!
Going somewhere? Taking a trip sometime soon? Well listen up because I’m hosting another giveaway – and this one is a beaut. This week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with Jimeale New York!

A year ago, Aussie designer and entrepreneur Jimeale Jorgensen launched a collection of pretty and practical travel accessories. And in a very short amount of time, Jimeale turned a single inspiration into a pretty spiffy line of cosmetic bags, diaper totes, men’s toiletry bags, shower caps and weekend totes.

jimeale+diaper+bag Jimeale New York Giveaway!The idea for her collection came while on holiday in Miami. Horrified by her friend’s “daggy” (Australian for “hot mess”) makeup bag, Jimeale started sketching – and a brand was born. Jimeale’s designs are fun, functional and sensibly priced. Naomi Watts and Isla Fisher are fans of the brand…and her diaper bags are so stylish that even a bloke like Borat doesn’t mind sporting one.

Kelly Rutherford, of Gossip Girl fame, says “I believe in Jimeale and love her bags. She makes great products at even better prices and donates a portion of her profits to charity and we love that! With her bags, the entire family travels in style.”

You too can travel in style because three of you will win a Jimeale New York Flat Pack Travel Cosmetic Bag in Ossington (lime green w/ white polka dots)!!!

ossington inside Jimeale New York Giveaway!
The Flat Pack Travel Cosmetic Bag is the perfect toiletries case for traveling. With individual compartments, it protects against leaks and spills. You can “flat pack” it, which means no more sitting on your port (aka suitcase) to close it. It zips open to lay flat and has two separate-lined zip compartments for earrings and personal treasures. Then there are two large clear zip areas to fit full-sized bottles, moisturizers, cleansers and more! Perfect for weekend getaways or to keep your makeup organized, it’s double lined on the inside with signature chocolate and white stripe – Jimeale’s favorite!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. The subject line should read “Jimeale New York Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, December 14th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, December 15th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

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.

Bey, You’re Just Too Funky For Me…

sasha+fierce1 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...
It seems that Beyonce – or rather her alter ego, Sasha Fierce – has been channeling Thierry Mugler lately. For the last few weeks – in photo op after photo op – she’s been seen wearing a vaguely familiar, futuristic-looking robotic glove. I couldn’t quite place it…until I came across new promos for her upcoming album – one of which has her sporting the very famous Thierry Mugler Motorcycle Corset from 1992.

sasha+fierce2 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...Both the glove and the corset were featured in George Michael’s Too Funky video, which was directed by Thierry Mugler. I wonder if, in her mission to one-up Rihanna, Beyonce will resurrect any other crazy fashions from that video.

Not beauty related, I realize…but it gives me a reason to share Too Funky with all of you. Enjoy!
