To celebrate the debut of the newly redesigned Chanel.com, CHANEL launched the highly anticipated Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art online last month.
First seen at the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear runway show, Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art was created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup. “For the show, I wanted to play with the CHANEL symbols; pearls, chains and wheat, as well as blossoms and small swallows that announce the arrival of spring,” says Peter Philips. “I focused on a natural makeup look with chic beige tones and a slight touch of rebellion: the tattoos!”
Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art is available for a limited time exclusively at Chanel.com, CHANEL boutiques and CHANEL Makeup Studios.
$75.00 for a package of five sheets. Includes a total of 55 designs.

Look who’s blonde again! It’s Britney, b*tch.
After months of rocking a darker do, Brit Brit decided to lighten up. So, this past weekend, she went to Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood and changed up her color…which looks great on her, I think.
Even more remarkable are her new extensions. This is the first time I can remember them not looking embarrassingly busted. By golly, they actually look like real hair growing out of Britney’s head…not like Sean Preston and Jayden James wove mommy’s weave in during arts & crafts class.
I give Britney’s new do 3 enthusiastic thumbs up.
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.
I love all the work you do. I really enjoy your “Get the Face” posts on your blog. My question is: What is the best way to apply red lipstick and how do you stop it from bleeding?
There are a few great tips that I can share with you when it comes to applying red lipstick. First, line your lips with a matte pencil that is similar to the lipstick color or darker. Using a triangular shaped sponge, dip it into loose translucent powder and apply it right below the outer corner of the lip line. Don’t blend the powder yet as that will be last. This will prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Apply the red lipstick using a lip brush and make sure to fill the lips in completely. Take a tissue and blot your lips – that should absorb some of the lipstick, leaving a sort of stained effect on the lips. Apply one more coat of lipstick, then sweep away the loose powder from below…and now you’re good to go. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario.

I’m not much of a cook, but I’ve got one heck of a recipe for ya…
Yesterday, my boo took me out for breakfast. As we sat across the table from each other, Graham kept gushing about my complexion. “Your skin looks amazing. Really, you’re glowing…it looks so fresh and healthy.” That’s when I really started beaming, as Mr. Spoiled Pretty throws around compliments like manhole covers (his euphemism, not mine).
So what’s my secret? Unfortunately, this time, it had nothing to do with the pregnancy hormones. This glow was a gift from NARS. A few weeks ago when I was in NYC for Fashion Week, I had an opportunity to meet with the NARS team – and I got color matched by James Boehmer, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist. NARS gifted me with their Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow foundations in Cadiz (medium-dark with caramel and red undertones) – which was a PERFECT match, by the by.
Anyways, so my glow yesterday was the result of the Sheer Glow Foundation mixed with the new Orgasm Illuminator. Here’s the recipe: mix 2 parts foundation with 1 part Orgasm Illuminator, and apply with a brush or sponge (I recommend the beautyblender). Then go somewhere where your beauty can be truly appreciated, and wait for the compliments to start flying.
Glo-oh-ow get ‘em, girl.
PS – I want to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to NARS for their wide range of foundation shades. Far too often, women with deeper complexions find themselves forgotten by makeup brands. Not so with NARS. I’m so glad to have found this foundation. I encourage you to go to your nearest NARS counter or Sephora store and get color matched too. I guarantee you won’t be able to leave empty-handed.
