mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Cat Eye Tutorial

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hello Mario,

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!

-Mariel

sephora+cat+eye Makeup Mondays With Mario: Cat Eye TutorialMariel,

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!

xo,
Mario

Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette Hits All The Right Notes

dior+jazz+club+limited+edition+eye+palette Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette Hits All The Right Notes

If you have eyes, I insist that you purchase Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette as soon as said eyes finish reading this review.

The limited edition, all-in-one palette features: cream to powder black liner, brow shaping powder, four eyeshadows and a top coat. The major selling point of this palette (which just so happens to have the chicest packaging eva) is the topcoat. In the tray, it deceivingly looks like shimmering snow, but it applies super sheer.

When you layer it on top of shadow, it goes all Emeril on you. BAM…in an instant, it kicks the color up a notch by imparting a sparkly, iridescence. Use the topcoat with any of the palette’s shadows – or in tandem with the any of the shadows in your makeup arsenal. I swear – it gives old products new life.

Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette and your lids should make beautiful music together. Don’t fight fate. Pick it up now at Nordstom.

Yesterday, even though I was just going over my friend’s house to watch football, I decided to rock a sapphire smoky eye.

Here’s the recipe:

MAC Dsquared² Greasepaint Stick in B

MAC Trend F/W ’09 Eye Shadow Compact in Tone: Grey (I used the bottom two shadows)

Hourglass Cosmetics Superficial Mascara in Carbon
