Makeup Mondays With Mario: Plump Your Pout

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Plump Your Pout

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.

Hi Mario,

My lips are on the thin side, and so I was hoping you could share some techniques and products that will make them look fuller.

Thanks!
Joanna

kim+kardashian+beauty+makeup+full+lips Makeup Mondays With Mario: Plump Your PoutHi Joanna,

To make your pretty little lips appear more full, start out by lining just above the natural lip line with a lip pencil very close in color to your natural lips. Careful not to overdraw too much, especially on the outer corners as it can look clownish or sad-ish. Follow with lipstick and/or gloss and make sure to fill the lips in completely, going over the lip pencil as well to prevent seeing the matte pencil next to the shine or gloss. In other words, apply the gloss exactly over the pencil, not just within the lip line.

For a really pretty pout, finish the lips by applying a cream or powder highlighter to the cupid’s bow and center of the bottom lip. This will attract light and lift those areas a bit. If using a gloss, apply the highlight before the gloss or use a light, shimmery gloss on the center instead.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

xo,
Mario

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals Perfection

nars+sheer+glow+foundation NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals Perfection

I’m not much of a cook, but I’ve got one heck of a recipe for ya…

Yesterday, my boo took me out for breakfast. As we sat across the table from each other, Graham kept gushing about my complexion. “Your skin looks amazing. Really, you’re glowing…it looks so fresh and healthy.” That’s when I really started beaming, as Mr. Spoiled Pretty throws around compliments like manhole covers (his euphemism, not mine).

NARS+Orgasm+Illuminator NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals PerfectionSo what’s my secret? Unfortunately, this time, it had nothing to do with the pregnancy hormones. This glow was a gift from NARS. A few weeks ago when I was in NYC for Fashion Week, I had an opportunity to meet with the NARS team – and I got color matched by James Boehmer, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist. NARS gifted me with their Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow foundations in Cadiz (medium-dark with caramel and red undertones) – which was a PERFECT match, by the by.

Anyways, so my glow yesterday was the result of the Sheer Glow Foundation mixed with the new Orgasm Illuminator. Here’s the recipe: mix 2 parts foundation with 1 part Orgasm Illuminator, and apply with a brush or sponge (I recommend the beautyblender). Then go somewhere where your beauty can be truly appreciated, and wait for the compliments to start flying.

Glo-oh-ow get ‘em, girl.

PS – I want to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to NARS for their wide range of foundation shades. Far too often, women with deeper complexions find themselves forgotten by makeup brands. Not so with NARS. I’m so glad to have found this foundation. I encourage you to go to your nearest NARS counter or Sephora store and get color matched too. I guarantee you won’t be able to leave empty-handed.

Dior+Dentelle Dior: Dentelle Collection for Spring 2010

I’ve been coveting just about everything in Dior’s new Spring 2010 makeup collection, particularly Lace Poudrier Dentelle Illuminating Lace-Effect Powder For Face. You see, makeup and lace are two of my favorite things – so scooping up this highlighter is a no-brainer. Dior Vernis in Gris Perle (Silver Pearl) is also high on my shopping list.
