Words From The Wise: Three Custom Color Clarifier Is An Eye Opener

Spoiled Pretty reader, Jaime, wrote me with the following plea for help:

“What product can I use to line the waterline on my lower eye? I like the look of liner on the lower waterline, but I can’t seem to find a product that works! When I use eye shadow with an eyeliner brush, it looks great, but the shadow seems to irritate my eyes when it inevitably gets in them a little bit. I’m looking for a product that is white – to make my eyes appear larger, and make me look well rested – but I just can’t find anything! Help! What do you use?”

I tend to stay up very late, writing stories to keep y’all entertained…so I know a thing or two about faking 8-hours of beauty sleep. When I need to look bright eyed and bushy tailed, I turn to .

Trae Bodge, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Three Custom Color Specialists, shares a product suggestion to make eyes look brighter, whiter and more beautiful.

Dear Jamie,

Great question! Using a light shade on the inner rim of the eyes does make the eyes look wider, brighter and less glassy by concealing the pink that naturally occurs there (and that can be more pronounced the more tired we are). Pencil is your best bet, as eye shadow can tend to flake off into the eye.

White has been the standby for years, but as of late makeup artists and beauty junkies have been using a flesh-colored pencil as it achieves the same goal but doesn’t look stark like white pencil can. We recommend our makeup artist staple, Three Custom Color Specialist’s Clarifier Pencil, available in Light and Dark $16.50. Easy to apply, water resistant, and great for use as a spot concealer, brow definer and highlighter anywhere on the face!

Jaime, Trae will be sending you the Clarifier Pencil…and she promises it will be an eye-opening experience! Many thanks to Trae and Three Custom Color Specialists for participating in this installment of Words From The Wise.

OMG: Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist Answers MY Beauty Question!!!

Remember this fierce cat eye that Kim Kardashian sported at New York Fashion Week?

Well, Kim’s makeup artist was fielding beauty questions on her blog – so I posted a comment, asking how he created it. And guess what? He answered my question and Kim posted on her blog today!!!

spoiledpretty: I absolutely NEED to know how you created the black & white edgy cat eye Kim wore to the Y-3 Fashion Week show.

Mario Dedivanovic: LOL Daneen, I loved doing that look on Kim too. It was very different and more of a fashion forward look. I used the MAC liquid liner and rimmed the entire eye around from corner to corner. I used a white matte shadow on the lid and under the brow and Cork shadow by MAC in the crease. I didn’t use any mascara on the bottom because I wanted the sharp line to show.

Can you believe? I think I’m in shock…

Head to Kim’s blog for more of Mario’s beauty tips!
