OMG: Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist Answers MY Beauty Question!!!

Remember this fierce cat eye that Kim Kardashian sported at New York Fashion Week?

Well, Kim’s makeup artist was fielding beauty questions on her blog – so I posted a comment, asking how he created it. And guess what? He answered my question and Kim posted on her blog today!!!

spoiledpretty: I absolutely NEED to know how you created the black & white edgy cat eye Kim wore to the Y-3 Fashion Week show.

Mario Dedivanovic: LOL Daneen, I loved doing that look on Kim too. It was very different and more of a fashion forward look. I used the MAC liquid liner and rimmed the entire eye around from corner to corner. I used a white matte shadow on the lid and under the brow and Cork shadow by MAC in the crease. I didn’t use any mascara on the bottom because I wanted the sharp line to show.

Can you believe? I think I’m in shock…

Head to Kim’s blog for more of Mario’s beauty tips!

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Wet N Wild Dual Effects Eye Pencil

I haven’t used Wet n Wild products since the mid 90’s, when I bought one of their brown lip pencils to outline my mouth, a la Janet Jackson in her That’s The Way Love Goes video.

But once I started college and had some disposable income, I forgot about the bargain brand that satisfied my beauty addiction throughout high school. Now, I’m full circle and back in love with another Wet n Wild liner – the new Beauty Benefits Dual Effects Eye Pencil.

These pencils offer double the benefits: one side defines with smooth, smokey color, while the other brightens, lifts and opens the eye area. The Beauty Benefits Dual Effects Eye Pencil comes in six shades: Solar Eclipse, Bronzed Earth, Golden Espresso, Starry Night, Rich Eggplant and Sterling Graphite.

I have the Sterling Graphite; I use the gray liner to define my upper and lower lashes, then I apply the sparkly white shadow to the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop.

Beauty Benefits Dual Effects Eye Pencil retails for only $4.99! Click here to see where they are sold in your hood.

My Latest MAC Purchase: You’ll Be Green With Envy


Today, after attending the Cashman & Associates Girls’ Day Out event, Mama Spoiled Pretty and I headed over to Macy’s for some extra innings of shopping. Mom was kinda working my last nerve, shopping up a storm, then asking me (aka telling me) to carry her heavy bags. But then she spotted a $180 Michael Kors dress – in my size – for $9. Can you even believe? So all was forgiven and Philadelphia has since been re-named the City of Motherly Love. Anyway, despite saving $171 on the dress, it still wasn’t my most satisfying purchase of the day.

Before mom and I headed for the petites department, we stopped at the MAC counter and had a ball playing with the makeup. At first, mom was all, “What do you need more MAC makeup for?” Obviously, I did not inherit my product addiction from my mother. But after watching me get all done up, thanks to the talented and knowledgeable MAC makeup artist Jillian, she too was bitten by the MAC bug. Jillian gave her a very sophisticated smoky eye and mom ended up buying both of the shadows Jillian used – Nehru (muted bluish black) and Knight Divine (black w/ silver pearl).

For my fabulous purchase (you’re going to be green with envy), watch the video:
