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?

Thanks,
Priscilla

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.

xo,
Mario

Look What I Recently Rescued From Sephora

Now that my I’m pregnant, a beautiful thing happened. My skin decided to act like it’s got some sense. Seriously, my skin developed behavioral issues circa 1990 and has been screwing with my self esteem ever since…until recently.

I used to be that girl who wouldn’t dare leave the house barefaced for a night out or a special occasion. I just couldn’t get away with it. Now, not only has my complexion drastically improved, but I also have that fabled pregnancy glow…and I don’t want to cover it up with the full coverage foundation I have in my beauty arsenal.

So last week, I decided to pay my little friend, Sephora, a visit. Mama needed some new makeup.

I ended up purchasing:

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Tan
Laura Mercier Undercover Pot in 4
Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara

At $42, Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer is pretty pricey. But is just so happens to be the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used in my entire L-I-F-E. And Laura gets big props for the wide range of shades. Can I get a hallelujah, brown girls?

Though I’ve been getting more sleep lately, I’ve started getting dark circles under my eyes – which I never had before. The shadows beneath my eyes were detracting from my glow, so those suckers had to go. I bought Laura Mercier’s Undercover Pot because after spending an hour testing almost all of the concealers at Sephora, this one reigned supreme. Undercover Pot is a travel friendly pot with two amazing concealers: Secret Camouflage (oil free and stays in place all day long to cover blemishes, scars, and imperfections) and Secret Concealer (the emollient formula combats dark circles and allows for a smooth application in the sensitive eye area). The pot also includes Translucent Loose Setting Powder, which adds a velvety finish.

The Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara was a re-purchase. I just cannot be without this product. It is my mascara soulmate. I’m sure my friends at Lancôme would have replenished my stock; they’re aware of how much I adore Hypnose Drama, but I didn’t have time to wait. My old one was, well, old and I needed a new tube stat.

In the above pic, I’m wearing another of my new favorite products: Hourglass Cosmetics’ new Prodigy Lipgloss. Hourglass sent me a sample a few weeks ago, and it has been a staple in my handbag ever since. I love the sleek packaging and non-tacky texture. If you’re one of those girls who loathes a sticky lip, you are going to LUVRE this gloss. It come in six gorgeous shades, but “Legend” shade is my fave…it’s like my natural lips, except 100% sexier. It is also available at Sephora.
