If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

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.

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Flawless Foundation

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,

My questions are about foundation. First, when I’m buying a foundation, how do I make sure that I’m buying the right shade? Second, once I apply my foundation, how do I get the color to stay true? I ask this because sometimes my foundation will turn slightly orange after a few hours. Thanks!

-Lia

foundation+jaw Makeup Mondays With Mario: Flawless Foundation

Hi Lia,

When chosing a foundation shade, it’s important that you consider your skin shade on your face and neck. Test a few shades of foundation across your jawline and slightly onto the neck. Blend with a sponge and whichever shade looks most natural should be the right match.

Getting the color of your base to stay true is easy. Your face oils are what cause the base to turn orange so try to keep your skin matte by using blotting tissues throughout the day. You may also want to start your application using an anti-shine or matte primer, followed by foundation. Finish off by setting it all with a translucent colorless loose powder and voila! Perfection.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

xo,
Mario

Conair Infiniti Pro Blow Dryer

Posted on by daneen in Hair, Hair Styling | 2 Comments
conair+infiniti+pro Conair Infiniti Pro Blow Dryer

I have a new special something in my life that I’m excited to tell y’all about.

Meet my new blow dryer boo, Conair’s Infiniti Pro. We’ve been going steady for almost two months and things are heating up.

Our courtship began when my old hair dryer started actin’ up. Even when I used it on the medium setting, the dryer would operate on high. No joke – it was like the heat of Hades was coming out of that thing. I didn’t want to chance a Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial-esque catastrophe, so I decided it was time for us to part ways.

Fortuitously, around the same time, I received an email from Conair – asking me if I’d like to review their Infiniti Pro 1875-Watt Salon-Performance AC Motor Styling Tool. I responded with a resounding “yes” and a few days later, it arrived on my doorstep so that we could get better acquainted.

Infiniti Pro, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Thanks to its powerful AC motor, the Infiniti Pro performs like a salon-quality dryer. It also dries hair super fast, which cuts down on styling damage. The Infiniti Pro uses ionic technology that reduces static electricity and leaves hair silkier, shinier, and more manageable. Plus it’s much quieter and lighter than your average dryer. Best of all, it only costs around $35.

I also love that I can use my comb attachment with the Infiniti Pro; when a dryer doesn’t accommodate my comb attachment, it’s a deal breaker.

The only thing I’d change about my hair dryer honey is the position of the buttons – or, rather, how easy it is to adjust the heat/air flow settings. Sometimes when I’m gripping the handle, I accidentally click one of the switches, which changes the settings.

Aside from this minor caveat, I’m very happy with the Infiniti Pro and I think we’re in it for the long haul.
