ZENO HOT SPOT Giveaway!

The makeup artists behind the scenes at Fashion Week can work wonders, but no model wants to be that girl showing up at call time with an unsightly blemish.

It is with this in mind that ZENO launched the ZENO BlemishBuster Hotline. This emergency “skin-tervention” service is available exclusively to models walking the runway at New York Fashion Week. All it takes is a simple text or email, and within six hours, a new ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device will be delivered to her door – charged up and ready to zit zap.

The ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device is the new secret weapon in the war against pimples. This hand-held device uses a single ingredient you can actually pronounce – heat – to destroy the bacteria that causes your pimples. The result: quick and painless pimple relief. Unlike other treatments, HOT SPOT can eliminate or significantly reduce 90% of blemishes within 24 hours.

Intrigued? Want a ZENO HOT SPOT of your own? Of course you do. Models are already blessed with tiny waists, un-cellulite-y thighs, and legs for days…so why should they be the only ones with photo ready and fabulous skin? Spoiled Pretty feels you, which is why I’m partnering with ZENO for a giveaway.

Two lucky readers will win the ZENO HOT SPOT (retail value $39.99), to keep their skin in the clear!

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave a way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Thursday, February 25, 2010. Good luck!

On The Cuff: Stop Water From Running Down Your Arms!

Don’t you just hate when you’re washing your face at the sink, and the water’s going everywhere? It’s running down your arms, onto the counter, then dripping on the floor. It’s like, damn – I just wanted to wash off my makeup…I didn’t need a bath! After you finish cleaning your face, you end up having to clean up the entire bathroom. What a pain, right?

Well, if you can relate then read on…because I found a product that will keep your sleeves dry and your bathroom floor puddle-free. Add this to the “why didn’t I think of that” list…

On the Cuff is a set of sponge bracelets that you wear on your wrists. When you’re washing your face, instead of the water running down your arms, the sponges absorb the water. The cuffs are one size fits all, so they stretch to accommodate both men and women. When they get dirty, just rinse with warm soapy water, squeeze and allow to dry.

What’s even better is that On The Cuff can also be used when washing the dishes, washing your car and cleaning the shower. The only thing I’d change about On The Cuff is the color. The industrial yellow sponge looked kinda cheap and lackluster against my cafe au lait skin. A pair in fuchsia or cerulean would be super chic.

On the Cuff comes in packs of 2 ($7.99) or 8 ($24.99). Both packs come in reusable mesh bags, and the larger pack even comes with a drying rack.

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Curling Stick Straight Lashes

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 have this problem where I have to curl my lashes several times throughout the day. When I first put on my makeup in the morning, I curl my lashes and then apply the mascara, but it seems that right when I walk out the door they are sticking straight again. I have no idea what to do. Can you please suggest some things that might help?

Thanks, Jen

Hey Jen,

Rest assured that you’re not the only girl with stick straight lashes! Before you start your face, curl the lashes once, counting to 3 or 4 seconds per pinch on each lash. This way, they will be evenly curled. Go ahead and do your makeup as normal. After the eyes are done, curl lashes one more time. Apply a curling mascara. There are tons of different curling mascaras on the market. N.Y.C. New York Color makes a great and affordable one. Brush out the mascara with a clean wand so it’s not too clumpy. Once it’s dried or almost dried, curl one more time, not pressing too hard. Finally, apply another coat of mascara. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays!

xo,
Mario
