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 large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Making Eyes

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 love eye shadow, but I don’t know how to wear them. I usually only wear one shade at a time because I don’t know how to mix and match and blend them together to create a more sophisticated look. Do you have any tips or color combination recommendations?

Thanks a bunch,

Taylor

eye+shadow Makeup Mondays With Mario: Making Eyes

Dear Taylor,

Eyeshadow application only gets better with practice. If you don’t already have a few good brushes, make that a priority. Generally, a lighter shade should be applied to the lids and/or brow bone. A darker, matte shade looks great applied along the crease of the eyes. Using a clean brush or one dipped in some loose powder, blend the shades together for a flawless finish. For added drama, apply an even darker shadow to the outer corners of the eyes. Check out my youtube videos for a clear demonstration of how to apply eyeshadows.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Well, We’re Movin’ On Up

moving+boxes Well, Were Movin On Up

Happy Monday, lovely Spoiled Pretty readers. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. I sincerely regret that it’s been so long since I’ve updated my blog. But I have a good excuse, I assure you. I just moved!

Yes, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I bid adieu to our 1 bedroom apartment and upgraded to our first house! It’s been a rough road the past few weeks – moving sucks, especially, when you’re six months pregnant and big as a house – but I’m so excited to finally set up a nursery for Westley and have enough storage space to accommodate my beauty arsenal.

Please bear with me as I ease back into my normal routine. Your regularly scheduled programming will resume shortly.

Jennifer Lopez & Her Beehive/Ratsnest Hairdo

I’m usually behind (pun intended) J Lo when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices, but I don’t know how I feel about the beehive/ratsnest hairstyle she wore to the UK premiere of her new film, The Back-Up Plan.

jennifer+lopez+beehive+premiere+8 Jennifer Lopez & Her Beehive/Ratsnest Hairdo
One minute I’m all “Homegirl should have had a back-up plan for that do.” The next minute, I think it’s the fiercest red carpet hair I’ve seen in a long while. Who knows…maybe the hairstyle had nothing to do with style at all, and her exaggerated bun was just a ruse to sneak her toddler twins, Max and Emme, into the movie without paying. Damn, Jenny, I know movie tickets are ridiculously high and all, but you didn’t have to do all this!

But don’t get me started on that dress. I realize that it’s Lanvin, but it might as well be the winner of a Project Runway trash bag challenge.

Arm Yourself: Urban Decay Revolver Fragrance Oil

urban+decay+revolver Arm Yourself: Urban Decay Revolver Fragrance Oil

Arm yourself with Revolver, Urban Decay’s new “sexy and powerful weapon of love.” The fragrance oil opens with top notes of lychee and pineapple leaf, then mixes with the middle note of fig. Sheer, yet potent base notes of amber and Egyptian musk round out the scent.

Eau de toilet perfume sprays often dissipate and fade as the day wears on; but this concentrated perfume oil comes in a perfect, go-anywhere roll applicator that can be targeted right at your pulse points (wrist, inner elbow and behind ears) – ao the fragrance seems as captivating at the end of the day as when you first put it on. Revolver tucks easily into the smallest evening bag without fear of unloading.
