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. I CONTINUE READING

Allure’s Airbrushing of Aniston

jennifer+aniston+allure+2011+cover Allures Airbrushing of Aniston

I’m no dummy. I realize that all fashion magazines dabble in the evil art of airbrushing, but the latest cover of Allure Magazine is on another level. That doesn’t even look like Jennifer Aniston. In fact, it doesn’t even look entirely human!

Tell me – what’s the point of putting a beautiful and easily recognizable celebrity on your cover if you’re going to alter her picture to the point where people can’t recognize her?

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Tips For Lasses With Glasses

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’m a makeup junkie and a big fan of yours – so this is very exciting being able to ask you a question personally. Anyway, here’s my problem. I wear glasses and I need advice on wearing eye makeup. I think my eyes are my best feature, so I want to show them off. But I don’t want to go so heavy that my glasses will magnify everything and make me look crazy. Do you have any tips? Thanks!

-Tanya

prada+glasses Makeup Mondays With Mario: Tips For Lasses With Glasses

Thank you, Tanya!  This is a good question that I don’t get asked often about so I’m glad to help!  I’ll start out by saying that if you wear glasses, you should look and feel equally beautiful as when you’re not wearing them.  A nice pair of glasses can even lift the eyes and face if the shape points towards the outer corners and isn’t too round. 

Keep the eye makeup simple because, like you mentioned, everything tends to look magnified. Magnified lashes could be gorgeous – but flecks of glitter or super shimmery shadow in the crease?  Not so gorgeous. Use natural tones that suit your eye and skin tone and stick with textures that are matte or satin-like. I love a nicely drawn line on the upper lid for definition and it’s important to curl the lashes and apply and even coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes. 

Eyebrows should be groomed and filled in – if needed – as well. You can really have a good time trying on different pairs of frames in colors that flatter your makeup and skin tone. Another look I really love is a red matte lip paired with clean eyes and a bit of highlighter on the cheekbones – it’s sexy and confident.  What more could you ask for? 

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

Mario

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Brushes That Wont Break The Bank

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,

How are you? I have been following your work and reading your blog for a couple of years now and you are my go-to guy for anything makeup and beauty related. I noticed in pictures that you have a ton of brushes that seem to be from different brands and I know that good quality brushes are important. Can you please recommend brushes that are good but affordable and preferably from one company? I have a couple of MAC brushes but I can’t really afford to buy a whole set right now. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!

sigma+brushes Makeup Mondays With Mario: Brushes That Wont Break The Bank

Hi Danielle,

I totally understand where you’re coming from when it comes to brushes being pricy! Finding very good, inexpensive brushes that last long and work well will sometimes require a bit of research. Research and testing takes all the fun out of it so heres my recommendation that I’m certain you will be very happy with. Try Sigma brushes. Sigma is a line of professional brushes that are all high quality and won’t break the bank. They offer a bunch of brush sets that you can choose from as well as individual brushes.

Happy Holidays to you as well and thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

xo,
Mario
