Makeup Mondays With Mario: Red Lipstick

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,

I love all the work you do. I really enjoy your “Get the Face” posts on your blog. My question is: What is the best way to apply red lipstick and how do you stop it from bleeding?


Hi Priscilla,

There are a few great tips that I can share with you when it comes to applying red lipstick. First, line your lips with a matte pencil that is similar to the lipstick color or darker. Using a triangular shaped sponge, dip it into loose translucent powder and apply it right below the outer corner of the lip line. Don’t blend the powder yet as that will be last. This will prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Apply the red lipstick using a lip brush and make sure to fill the lips in completely. Take a tissue and blot your lips – that should absorb some of the lipstick, leaving a sort of stained effect on the lips. Apply one more coat of lipstick, then sweep away the loose powder from below…and now you’re good to go. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario.

I've Fallen Hard For Urban Decay's Fall 2009 Collection

Though summer has just begun, fall makeup collections are popping up left and right. Not to be outdone, Urban Decay (one of my all-time favorite brands) just dropped 30+ products like they’re hot. And they are. Take one look at the this and try not to buy. I dare you. Makeup junkies, just try to keep those purse strings tight and see how that works out for you.

The Urban Decay Fall 2009 Collection includes:

Ink For Eyes Cream Eyeliner: It’s everything you want in a cream eyeliner! More precise than a pencil, more forgiving than a liquid, this super-smooth formula offers more control, play time, and buildable coverage than your average liner. Create razor-sharp lines or smoky bedroom eyes… the creamy formula and double-ended applicator make it easy. Try the angled liner brush for precise details, or use the smudger for blending and drama. Available in Binge (midnight blue), Demolition (brown), Empire (eggplant), Loaded (deep green), Pyrotechnics (iridescent glitter, clear base), and Zero (black).

Complexion Primer Potion – Pore Perfecting: Smooth on a little Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion before foundation (or alone!) to totally minimize the look of pores and fine lines. The velvety, paraben-free formula flashes down to a soft-matte finish, without the greasy, heavy feel sometimes associated with foundation primers. The result? Flawless skin with an airbrushed look and feel. Foundation applies smoothly, evenly, and won’t fade away. Ideal for oilier skin, but dry complexions who want pore perfection will love it, too.

Complexion Primer Potion – Brightening: Dull skin? Fine lines? Disappearing foundation? Try Brightening Complexion Primer Potion under foundation (or alone!) for beautifully moisturized skin that looks brighter and feels tighter. This lightweight, oil-free, paraben-free formula includes buzz-worthy ingredient Matrixyl 3000, celebrated for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Hyaluronic Filling Spheres also minimize the look of fine lines while leaving skin beautifully moisturized. Your skin will look youthful, lifted and firm, and your foundation will apply smoothly, evenly, and last longer!

Eyelash Primer Potion: Wave this magic wand before your favorite mascara for lashes that appear thicker, longer and stronger…right before your very eyes. Tiny fibers band together, cling to every lash, and construct towers of Babel… reaching for heavenly lashes. Just apply Eyelash Primer Potion, then apply your favorite mascara as usual. Your lashes will look fake, but the magic is real.

Lip Primer Potion: This invisible primer lays a silky foundation for your favorite lipstick or gloss. Color is truer, applies smoother, lasts longer, and will not fade or feather. The easy-glide formula feels velvety-soft, without the drying feeling often associated with long-lasting lip color. The formula includes SPF 15 (yay!) and moisturizing Vitamins A, C and E for a primer that protects and perfects.

Deluxe Eyeshadow: Created with maximum staying power, Deluxe Eyeshadows offer incredibly long-lasting wear that won’t fade (especially when paired with Urban Decay’s miraculous Eyeshadow Primer Potion). Available in three new shades: Freakshow (deep purple w/red sheen), Frigid (deep purple w/blue sheen) and Ruthless (pale sandy taupe shimmer).

Lipsticks: The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with Vitamins A, C, and E. Hyaluronic Spheres are added to stimulate cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill-in lines and wrinkles—now, how many Lipsticks can do that?! The teardrop-shape bullet (etched with an Urban Decay logo) is infused with a decadent crème caramel scent and flavor. Yum. Available in three new shades: Confession (deep, semi-sheer burgundy), Naked (creamy pink-nude) and Oil Slick (glossy black w/silver microsparkle).

24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils: Just like Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, these Lip Pencils are guaranteed to last, and also contain Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, and Cottonseed Oil to nourish the skin and improve the smoothness of application. They’re the perfect complement to Urban Decay Lipsticks, Stains, and Glosses. Available in two new shades: Paranoid (dark pinky nude) and Wallflower (medium nude).

Surreal Skin Cream-to-Powder Foundation: This ultra-lightweight formula transforms from a decadent cream to a micro-fine powder upon contact with skin. The light-as-air texture glides on effortlessly and feels as natural as your own skin. (No heavy, greasy, or powdery makeup texture.) Lighter than liquid, the buildable formula gives you all the coverage you desire, without the pore-clogging effects of heavier foundations – you can even wear it as a concealer. Available in eight shades.

Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup: Use a little for sheer coverage or keep puffing for heavier coverage. Titanium dioxide, a major ingredient, provides formulation color and great coverage. The handy on/off switch means you can toss it in your purse – no spills. Available in four new shades.

I’m lusting after this entire collection, and I think the feelings are mutual because every single product is calling my name…especially, the Ink For Eyes Cream Eyeliner. Which ones have you at hola?

Merchant of Venice: Collection Venise De Chanel for Fall 2009

As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the Chanel Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons.

As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.

EXCLUSIVE CREATION: Eye Gloss Luminous Cream Quadra Eye Shadow is a quartet of gel-cream shades – pearl, gold, black and red black – delivers a subtle luminous sheen that blends beautifully, from sheer to intense.

LIPS: The Chanel lip collection expands with a selection of rich, luxurious shades. Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour arrives in Intuitive, a pinkish brown; Clandestine, a rich brick shade; Captive, a classic brown; Amusing, a rosewood tone; Comedia, a true rose; and Instinctive, a perfect pink nude. Lips glimmer with Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Courtisane, a natural pink, and Arelequin, a glossy gold. Finally, define the mouth with Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Praline d’Or, a golden-hued nude.

EYES: Create a subtle or more dramatic look with Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano, a palette with shades of moss, pink and seafoam, and green shimmer. The latest Irreelle DUO Silky Eyeshadow Duo arrives in Acqua Alta, a pairing of white and grey shadows. Brows look perfectly defined with two new shades of Le Crayon Sourcils Precision Brow Definer, Blond Clair and Cendre Noir.

FACE: For the perfect finish, apply Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Fresque, a subtle peach shade, or Les Tissages De Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Sienna, a gorgeous earthy bronze. Skin is luminous with Poudre Douce Soft Pressed Powder in Pêche Caresse, a soft peach.

NAILS: Chanel, the leader in nail colour trends, introduces two new shades of Le Vernis Nail Colour: Intermezzo, a white pearl, and Gondola, a stunning maroon shimmer.

Available at Chanel boutiques, department and specialty stores, and on
