Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


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. I CONTINUE READING

emma+stone Emma Stone Is Pretty in Pink

I’m quite smitten with the fuchsia lip actress Emma Stone rocked at Monday’s Conde Nast Traveler Hot List Party. According to usmagazine.com, “Makeup artist Mai Quynh custom-blended the color using Mark Pro Glimmer Lip Powder in Punk and Mark Glow Baby Glow Lip Gloss in Girly Girl.”

Stone’s flawless skin and bold, black liner help her pout to pop. 

Pretty in pink….isn’t she?

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Natural Beauty

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.

Dear Mario,
I’m writing for advice on eco-friendly/natural/organic beauty products and makeup. I want to incorporate some “green” products into my routine, but I don’t know where to start. I’m not interested in granola-crunchy stuff made out of hemp that smells like patchouli. I want high quality products that work as well as my regular products, but are also good for my body and the earth. Please share any favorite brands or products. Thanks.
-Linda
PS – I’m a big fan – so basically whatever you recommend, I’m going to buy.

Linda,

There are definitely great eco-friendly, organic beauty products out there for you to use and enjoy – and I think in the future we’ll be seeing a lot more beauty companies going green as well.

One of my personal faves is Josie Maran Cosmetics. Her line of makeup is very eco-friendly and the products deliver beautifully as true makeup should. Aside from being good for our environment, Josie’s makeup has tons of benefits for your skin. Most of her products are made with Argan Oil which, thanks to Josie, is becoming very popular for its healing abilities.

As a makeup artist working on sets and photo shoots, I tend to use product that has great pigment and textures over products that are eco-friendly or organic. But Josie’s line totally delivers. Of course, I have to mention the Bear Naked Wipes that I can’t live without. They are, hands down, the best makeup wipes ever! Other great natural brands I like are Tarte, Korres and Bare Escentuals.


Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick

Posted on by daneen in Lips, Lipstick | Leave a comment
mac+sheen+supreme+lipstick MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick
I’m not really a lipstick gal. Don’t get me wrong, I have hundreds of tubes of lipsticks, but I typically reserve them for special occasions. It’s just that I feel more comfortable in a gloss. Plus I’m usually in a rush or on the go – so a lip product that’s a little more forgiving that doesn’t require a mirror to apply appeals to me.

As such, when I do reach for a lipstick, I love a sheerer finish…like MAC’s lipsticks with the Lustre finish. Sheer Plum was my very first MAC purchase way back when…and Syrup, Spice It Up!, Polished Up, Cockney and Lady Bug rank among my other faves. Now, just in time for spring, MAC releases a new collection that’s convinced me to give my glosses a temporary timeout: Sheen Supreme Lipstick.

Gloss is good, but there’s nothing quite as wonderfully, worldly cinematic as a Lipstick – and they’re coming back! We’ve updated formulas to make it all plausible. Sheen Supreme is the combination of the strong, sensually saturated colour of, say, Tilda Swinton’s I Am Love Milanese Lipstick, leavened with the light feel and clear vibrancy, the see-through sheen of a modern New York City Girl Gloss. Imagine no muddy undertones, gliding in pearl or creme finish, moisturizing with no sticky/tacky feel.

The Sheen Supreme Lipstick shades include:

mac+sheen+supreme+lipsticks MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick

Bare Again: Pinky neutral beige
Behave Yourself: Light blue pink
Can’t Get Enough: Beige neutral
Can’t Resist: Golden purplish red
Full Speed: Bright clean yellow pink
Good to Be Bad: Deep burgundy
Gotta Dash!: Pale coral
Impressive: Neutral gilded plum
Insanely It: Watermelon pink
Look at Her!: Metallic copper
New Temptation: Vivid blue red
Quite the Thing!: Deep blue plum
Supremely Confident: Pale nude
Ultra Darling: Mid-tone yellow pink
If spring has you considering adopting a bright lip color, this is definitely the way to do it. A bold shade in a sheer formula is easier to wear than a creamy or matte texture. It’s also fresh looking and seasonally chic.

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick is $14.50 and available at Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Nordstrom, MAC stores and maccosmetics.com.

Peep My Polish: Ginger + Liz Swagger

This week, I’m rocking Swagger by Ginger + Liz, a “soft, sexy metallic with rose gold undertones.”

swagger+nail+polish+ginger+%252B+liz Peep My Polish: Ginger + Liz Swagger

The formula is pigmented as all get-out, so it only took two coats to achieve this gilded gorge-osity. And it’s so hot, every time I peep my own polish, this starts playing in my head:

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us…
