Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection

spoiled+pretty+green+week+small Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection
I love a hair product with Argan Oil in it. For centuries, Moroccan women have used this lightweight yet rich elixir to protect their hair (and skin) from UV damage while creating soft, silky perfection. It used to be that you had to purchase these Argan Oil–infused products at a salon or beauty boutique, and they would cost a pretty penny. Thankfully, Organix just launched the Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection (Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner, Renewing Treatment and Penetrating Oil) that performs just as well as its prestige counterparts, but costs around $9 per product and is available at drugstores.

Would You Let Your Man Do Your Makeup?

Would you let your boyfriend/husband do your makeup? As this video proves, it’s probably not a great idea – though it’s definitely entertaining…and the end result is pretty decent.

One of my favorite parts is when the boyfriend/makeup artist calls the MAC eye liner pencil “a MAC thang.” Hilarious.

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Mascara Made Easy

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Mascara Made Easy

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 confused and I need your help. It seems that there are so many conflicting “rules” about how to apply mascara and I don’t know which ones to follow. Some say to hold the wand vertically while others say horizontally. I’ve been told to bend the wand – what good does that do? And some tips say let your mascara dry between coats, while other tips say not to let the coat dry before applying more. 

If anyone knows the best way to apply mascara, I know it’s you. So please help, Mario!

You rock,
Reena
applying+mascara Makeup Mondays With Mario: Mascara Made EasyHey Reena,

I don’t blame you for feeling confused! Applying mascara should be one of the most simple steps in your makeup routine. I’m not sure that there is technically a “best way” to apply mascara as it really depends on your lashes and how you prefer them to look and feel. When I apply mascara, I hold the wand horizontally and apply it first to the root of the lash up to the tip.  If I want a darker and fuller lash, I usually wiggle the brush from side to side to really coat the lashes with mascara. 

I prefer to apply a second or third coat while the lashes are still wet because it allows for easier blending and separating. The same goes for the bottom lashes as well. I recommend you find your own way to apply mascara that feels most comfortable to you and gives you the result you want.  In other words, you make your own rules to follow!


Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss

 Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss

I’m currently in love (okay, obsessed) with Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss. On one end, there’s a creamy and lipstick and on the other, there’s a super shiny, non-sticky, sheer gloss that just so happens to smell and taste like vanilla cupcakes. 

Formulated with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil, the product provides moisturizing coverage and is available in three pretty pink shades (I own Rosey, a dusty rose).  I’m crossing my fingers that more colors are in the works because I would add each and every one to my collection. 

This double-ended multitasker is a makeup bag must have.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

spoiled+pretty+green+week+small Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush
In honor of Earth Day (April 22nd), Spoiled Pretty is celebrating its 3rd annual Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman Week – a week-long celebration of natural and organic beauty products that will help you green your beauty routine.
First up is a makeup bag must-have. You know how you apply your blush in the morning and by lunchtime, it’s disappeared and you look like a CSI cadaver? Well, I’ve found a blush that’s in it for the long haul.  Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is a new long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours. No kidding. This cheek color lasts until you take it off.

Tarte+Amazonian+Clay+12 Hour+Blush Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. And gals with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is also infused with Vitamins A, C and E – which fight free radical damage, prevent premature signs of aging, while brighten the skin.
Whether you’re feeling peachy keen or in the mood for a rosy glow, Tarte has you covered. Available in eight shades, the blushes are buildable and deliver a natural-looking, ultra-flattering flush. For best results, apply with my favorite blush brush from EcoTools, which is also a friend of Mother Earth.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush retails for $25 and is a Sephora exclusive.
