Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

In What Order Do You Apply Your Eye Makeup?

Posted on by daneen in Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, Mascara, Primer | Leave a comment

eye+makeup In What Order Do You Apply Your Eye Makeup?I always apply my mascara before any other eye makeup, because I inevitably end up getting mascara all over my eyelid (no matter how careful I am).

I clean up the mess with a moistened Q-tip…then apply primer, eyeshadow and liner – in that order.

In what order do you apply your eye makeup?

Watch my latest NBC 10! Show appearance to hear about my favorite summer beauty staples!

View more news videos at: http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/video.

Every member of the studio audience went home with a few product samples. But before you get all “where can I get me a 10! show ticket?” – just relax. How could you think I would forget about my online amigas?

If you don’t know me by now, you will never never never know me…

This week, I’m gifting one of you with a plethora of products that will help you beat the heat and keep you looking hot all summer long!

clinique+sun+with+solarsmart Summer Beauty Staples on the NBC 10! Show

Clinique Sun with SolarSmart is a new line of sunscreens that protect against both UVA and UVB rays. The formula is non-greasy, oil-free, water and sweat resistant, yet appropriate for sensitive skin. The range includes: SPF 30 Face Cream, SPF 50 Face Cream, SPF 30 Body Cream, SPF 50 Body Cream, SPF 15 Face/Body Cream, SPF 25 Body Spray, SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick, and Rescue Balm with Aloe.

ModelCo Body Meringue Bronze Glow is an instant bronze shimmer and gradual self-tanner, in a mousse formula. This weightless foam firms the skin while offering a light buildable, natural tan. After smoothing the foam on, a light instant bronze appears so you can see exactly where you’ve applied. And over the next few hours, your tan gradually deepens. The best thing about Body Meringue, IMO, is it’s skin firming properties; it contains an ingredient that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite. Can you even? And if you want to kick your tan up a notch, mist on ModelCo’s Shimmer Airbrush Illuminiser over tanned skin for a sparkly effect. My little secret tip is to spray it in your hair, which looks beyond amazing on all hair colors!

philosophy+never+let+them+see+you+shine Summer Beauty Staples on the NBC 10! Show

If the Philadelphia heat and humidity turn your face into an oil slick, I feel you. I get shiny too, and it’s very embarrassing and it’s a high-maintenance situation. Philosophy’s Never Let Them See You Shine line of skincare products are specifically designed to control oil. The Cleanser deep cleans pores and the Scrub gently exfoliates. The Primer creates a matte finish, and can be applied on bare skin or mixed with foundation.

Secret Clinical Waterproof Antiperspirant and Deodorant offers all-day protection through heat and humidity, or after being in the water. So it’s ideal in the city, at the pool, or at the shore. The formula is skin soothing, and Secret Clinical Waterproof is designed with two-click applicator to ensure that the right amount of product is delivered to the underarm area with each use.

fresh+citron+de+vigne+eau+de+parfum Summer Beauty Staples on the NBC 10! Show

In the summertime, you want to choose a lighter fragrance because heavier winter scents can become cloying in the warmer months. I’ve found the perfect summer scent: Citron de Vigne Eau de Parfum by Fresh. Inspired by France’s Champagne region, the fragrance has crisp, lemony top notes, a heart of pinot noir and an earthy base. Citron de Vigne is unisex, so buy a bottle and your entire household can share!

This prize is worth over $360!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Summer Beauty Staples Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Monday, June 1st. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants.

Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion Has A New Wand!

Posted on by daneen in Primer | Leave a comment

Urban+Decay%27s+New+Eyeshadow+Primer+Wand Urban Decays Eyeshadow Primer Potion Has A New Wand!Urban Decay listens to their customers – which is why they recently debuted a new wand for their Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Many customers complained that the old applicator couldn’t reach all of the goodness inside, and much of the primer went to waste. Some women took their frustrations out on the bottle itself, sawing it in half to get their money’s worth.

As you can see, Urban Decay tweaked the applicator – creating a little bend at the end which will (hopefully) make it easier to coax the genie out of the bottle.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is sold at Sephora and urbandecay.com.

Well-Defined brings to life over two years of work backstage in the lab to perfect our newest foundation and concealer. Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation is a rich, luxurious Cream Foundation in tube. This lush uniquely textured foundation delivers ultimate hydration while instantly revitalizing dull and dry skin. Smooth and even application yields a medium buildable coverage with a natural-satin finish. It’s paired with Studio Sculpt Concealer, which provides full-coverage that never becomes dry and cakey with a gel-based cream formula slips onto skin, effortlessly hiding imperfections.

“Studio Sculpt Foundation has fused new advancements in technology with innovative plant-based extracts to create a lush, luxurious new cream-gel foundation that delivers comfortable, weightless and flawless coverage,” says Nick Gavrelis, MAC’s Vice President of Global Product Development. “Makeup artists and women customers alike can easily achieve blendable medium coverage, with a luminous, satiny finish.”

Gordon Espinet, MAC’s Vice President of Global Makeup Artistry shares this application tip for the non-professional user: “Begin with a pea size amount on the back of your hand, and use any foundation brush to apply onto hydrated skin. Mix in a bit of your favorite moisturizer (try Strobe Cream or Strobe Liquid), which will create a sheer, luminous finish that makes skin appear to be candlelit. Use any MAC concealer over areas that need additional coverage.”

Kim Kardashian’s Tips For Making Makeup Last

kim+kardashian+promo2 Kim Kardashians Tips For Making Makeup Last
On her blog, Kim Kardashian shares a few tips on making your makeup last and keeping it looking fresh all day:

It’s definitely hard to keep up your makeup all day. I touch up throughout the day. Using a primer always helps keep the foundation fresh. I use Smashbox primer.

I keep a translucent powder with me in my purse and put it on with a blush brush to get rid of the foundation getting oily.

In order to keep your eyeshadow on all day, apply a MAC paint to the lid then apply shadow on top!

The key to fresh makeup is just bringing the essentials with you to touch up throughout the day!

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Makeup Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Kim Kardashian, Primer | 5 Comments

kim+kardashian Kim Kardashians Favorite Makeup Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish
Kim Kardashian is forever mugging for the camera. So homegirl should know a thing or two about foundation primers. She blogs:

smashbox+photo+finish+foundation+primer Kim Kardashians Favorite Makeup Primer: Smashbox Photo FinishI love this Smashbox foundation primer called Photo Finish. Some make up artists
don’t believe in primers. They think your natural oils should shine through. However, when I do my make up myself, I find it really helpful and it makes the foundation glide on really easily and flawlessly.”
