bump+nose Makeup Mondays With Mario: Nose Job

Hello Mario!

I have a roman nose with the classic bump on the bridge. I’ve been searching on how to minimize this problem, but can only find tips on how to minimize a wide or long nose. I understand that dark recedes and light makes things more pronounced. I got so frustrated with my lack of contouring skills that I decided to cancel out my whole nose and just shade the whole thing. Boy was that a mistake – haha. For some reason my nose was even more pronounced! Can you offer a some kind of makeup suggestion for this beak of mine? Thank you so much, and I love your work!

xoxo,
Susan


Hi Susan,

I’m no stranger to the beak, especially being of Albanian decent! My mother and father both actually have “the roman nose,” as do so many men and women in eastern Europe. Unfortunately, makeup will not make such a big difference in decreasing the bump on the bridge. You will see best results in a photo once contoured properly rather than in person. Here’s how to give your self a mini nose job…

You were right about dark shades receding and lighter shades emphasizing and bringing things out. Keep that in mind and with a small shadow brush, apply your lighter shade below and above the bump in the center. Make sure the bump is matte and with the darker, matte shade, very lightly sweep over it. There should be no harsh lines visible. Again, using the darker shade, you’re now going to apply it to the tip of the nose that hangs downward so when you’re looking straight at yourself in the mirror it should appear as if your nose ends where the dark shadow on the tip begins. Contouring takes a lot of practice so I advise that you try this out many times before you go out. Good luck!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

Mario

MAC+Venomous+Villains MAC Venomous VillainsA potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast…bad never looked so good. A crystal ball of color created from your favorite Disney Venomous Villains, inspired by the three most infamously frosty, fabulous and formidable of Disney’s Dark Ladies…and one dastardly Dr. Facilier. Don’t you love it? A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella de Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen, each featured on one ultra primary displayer Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s Dr. Facilier are both up to no good on their own. Uniquely designed iconic packaging you will kill for, cunning characters and bedeviled beauties that are so alluring, you can’t help but wonder: what would it be like to be one?

Les Khakis De Chanel Nail Polish

chanel+nouvelle+vague+nail+polish Les Khakis De Chanel Nail PolishThis summer, I was a little late jumping on the Chanel Nouvelle Vague nail polish bandwagon. By the time I discovered the rockin’ robin’s egg blue lacquer at a local salon, I could only get a manicure. Buying a bottle there – or anywhere else – was out of the question, as the shade was sold out everywhere. Well, except for eBay, where a single bottle had a price tag of $75.

After missing out on Nouvelle Vague, I swore I would never again be tardy to a Chanel LE VERNIS party. And I don’t want you to be singing the shoulda woulda coulda’s either. Which is why I beseech you to buy Les Khakis De Chanel, a collection of three nail polishes developed in celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out.

les+khakis+de+chanel+nail+polish Les Khakis De Chanel Nail Polish

Three limited-editions hues (Khaki Rose, a dusky pink-beige; Khaki Vert, a mossy foam green; and Khaki Brun, a pale stony taupe) are must-haves for any beauty lover’s polish collection…especially if you’re like me and appreciate an edgy, neutral nail. The shades can be worn alone, but I’ve been told they can be particularly edgy when all three are painted in an alternating, camouflage-y pattern.

Considering I’ve got my hands full with a 3 week old baby, I’m gonna stick to a minimal mani and leave the artistry to you nail philes out there.

Les Khakis De Chanel are now available at Chanel boutiques, Chanel.com and select department stores.

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.

Mario,

This is so exciting being able to ask you a question. I am a regular visitor to your blog and have learned so much about makeup from you. But my question isn’t about makeup. It’s about skincare. I’d love to know what your favorite skincare products (cleanser, moisturizer, scrub, makeup remover and lip balm) are and why.

Thanks and keep up the awesome work,
Jessica


mmwm Makeup Mondays With Mario: Skin Care Superstars!


Hi Jessica,

I have tons of favorites when it comes to skincare products. For cleansing, I love La Mer The Cleansing Foam; it feels amazing, smells good and spreads nicely. A less expensive and comparable cleanser (and one of my all time faves) is Olay Deep Cleansing Face Wash with Witch Hazel. A great, basic and cheap scrub is St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I try not to exfoliate every day though – it can be too harsh on your skin. Once or twice a week I use DDF’s Glycolic 5% Exfoliating Wash. To remove your makeup, I recommend Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes. I love everything about them and I’m sure you will too. Wipe away makeup and then follow with your normal skincare routine.

When it comes to moisturizing, I tend to use products that are not too thick or oily. I love La Mer The Moisturizing Lotion. It comes in a pump and is more lightweight than the popular creme. Cetaphil is still a favorite of mine also and works well on a lot of skin types. Sara Happ’s The Lip Slip is a very nice lip balm and you should try out her lip exfoliators that come in lots of great flavors. I also love MAC’s Tinted Lip Conditioner w/ SPF 15. I saved the best for last – The Eye Balm by La Mer. It’s a new eye cream and it’s the creme de la creme! I use it like three times a day and I LOVE IT!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

mac+haute+and+naught+lash+mascara MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

As much as I adore MAC Cosmetics (y’all know I do), I’ve always been a little meh about their mascaras. So when the company sent me a sample of their new Haute & Naughty Lash, the package actually sat around for weeks before I tried it.

When I finally got around to reviewing it, I wanted to smack myself upside the head for waiting so long – and for doubting the makeup masterminds at MAC.

Haute &Naughty Lash lets your lashes lead a double life, thanks to a two-in-one dual wiper system. For natural, genetically blessed look, use the wand with the pink end. For doe-eyed, dramatic fringe, use the wand with the pink and disco purple end. The hydrating formula prevents flaking and comes off easily with eye makeup remover.

Peep these photos and see for yourself how Haute & Naughty transformed my lashes from blah to bladow!

Haute & Naughty Lash is currently available at nordstrom.com and maccosmetics.com. In September 2010, it will be sold at all MAC stores and counters. MAC products have a way of selling out, so if I were you, I’d get this mascara while it’s haute!
