Makeup Mondays With Mario: Glossy Eye Makeup

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.

Dear Mario,

I hope this message finds you well. I know you're super busy so I'll jump right in with my question for you. For years I've seen woman in magazines with a glossy eye makeup and I want to try this look on me but don't even know where to begin. I read once that Vaseline works over a normal shadow and when I tried it on myself it lasted all of about 10 minutes before getting into my eyes and on my lashes. Please help me with a product recommendation or one of your genius techniques so my eyes too can be glossy like the magazine models!



There are several ways to get a glossy effect on your eyelids. I've done this look many times through the years and it's gorgeous when done the right way. I have also experimented with a few techniques and products. The simplest way to get your lids looking glossy is to use an eye gloss. Here's what you do - first apply shadow primer or concealer to the lids and set with loose powder. This will even out the color of your lids and help the eye gloss to last longer by preventing your oils and the actual gloss from mixing together and eventually making a mess on your pretty eyes.

You must try the Jane Iredale Eye Gloss. It comes in a little tube with a wand applicator in several shades. Just apply it directly to your lids and that’s pretty much it! No need to add several products. This eye gloss is great because it's not overly glossy and it doesn't crease or run at all.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

The Tourist Movie Review

Hi Lovlies... it’s movie review time! ^^ I do hope you like my reviews? Here we go...

So this movie starting Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp... who wouldn’t watch it right? It seems like another “ Mr. & Mrs. Smith” Movie, with irresistible cast members! Though, don’t get your hopes up too high, it was nothing like that movie!

The whole time, Angelina is suppose to be this spy agent, she acts like “ high class” or “ overly confident” during the whole movie but that’s about it. She never hold a gun through-out the whole movie... At the climax of the film, I was expecting her to finally do something “ spy agent” like... but she just acted like a woman ready to be rescued!!!! There is a twist in the movie, I give you that. It was unexpected, so I thought the ending was actually good. The process was a bit drag, not drag enough for me to stop watching it so I guess it’s alright. 

Overall I gave this movie a 3 star. It only gets that much because of the cast and the final twist in the plot. Otherwise it’s not really worth watching. Hope that didn’t disappoint you too much!

Will you watch this movie? 

Are you a fan of Angelina or Johnny?

Creeps of the Day...

Hi lovlies.. I had a little creepy morning.. this is what happen...

Well.. my car is supposedly coming back home soon~ so my hubby thought I should start driving again. Literally I stopped driving for months.. so I thought it was a good idea. Driving is not as scary as I thought it would be after the accident.. I am still more sensitive than before... about anything.. but I think I will be ok. I usually turned into this small street but there was a stupid person standing in the middle of the turned lane! Er.. I hate it when people stand in the middle of the street? Does he have a death wish? There is no cross walk, so at least cross when there is no car around.. not in the busy morning time when people are off to work!!!

So I avoided him and turned into the next street... as I was turning, there was a stupid dog standing in the middle of the street! Luckily I thought “ he’s standing on the other lane.. not going to bother me”.. but there was another car coming from the other direction & the dog moved toward my lane! So my hubby start screaming “ Careful!” & I was just shock for a little bit because the dog was kind of at my blind spot when he moved, so I barely saw the stupid dog... errr.. lucky dog, nothing happen to him..  = =... Idk if he have a owner, no chain or anything on him~ 

I was trying to find a stupid dog pix, but all I found were cute ones.. & this one is so sad, the dog is trying to help the other dog that got hit... 

After I arrive at work, I was bored because getting dropped off meaning getting to work EXTRA early.. so I decided to go to the convenient store and buy some breakfast. I went through the backdoor because it was closer, & than I saw a bunch of construction worker guys from next door standing around looking at me.. WEIRD... so I quickly walk pass by them... as I approach to the lights, I saw the drivers in the cars looking at me... errr... this is unlike my old office building, where the nearby streets area always filled with people. Now, there is no one around me.. ehh.. scary.. Thank GOD it’s day time..( of course I would never walking around by myself at night...)

I bought some donuts & left the store, on my way back a black guy said “ hey beautiful” or whatever he said I didn’t listen. I don’t have anything against black guys, no matter the race, it’s just creepy for a stranger to say those things to me.. errr... Finally, I am almost back into the office building, I made another mistake by thinking going back in the back door will be faster... IT WAS LOCKED!..  ahhhh!! ok.. so now I have to pass by the construction worker guys AGAIN to go around to the front door.... & I got another “ morning” greeting.. hahaha..

Ok... so that was my creepy morning.. oh & the donuts taste horrible. 

I can’t wait to get my car back.. I miss it SO MUCH.. 

How was your morning?

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Blush That Won't Budge

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 your blog, and have been reading all your posts at Spoiled Pretty! I need some help with making my powder blush last. I put on my blush after applying my primer, cream foundation, and loose powder. I am using a variety of blushes, including NARS, MAC, and Wet n' Wild, but none of them seem to stay. Is there anything I can do to get my powder blush to last longer? Thanks!


Hi Cassidey!

Powder products tend to stay better on moisturized skin. You mentioned that you're using a primer, cream foundation and loose powder which all work. However, using an emollient moisturizer will certainly help your blush and any powders to last longer.

Another way to get your cheeks blushing longer is to first apply a cream blush and follow with a powder blush right over it. I do that often when I need a client's makeup to last through the day and night.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

OPI Black Shatter and the Katy Perry Collection

I can't remember the last time I was this excited about my nails. Peep my polish...I layered OPI's new Black Shatter over top of MAC Nail Lacquer in Soiree (from their Cham Pale collection) to create a rose gold leopard-esque print!

Black Shatter creates a crackled finish when applied over any dried nail polish (it doesn't work on bare nails - I tried). It accompanies the Katy Perry Collection by OPI - which is gorgeous in its own right.

Teenage Dream

Not Like the Movies

Last Friday Night

The One That Got Away

When I saw an ad for this collection in one of my fashion magazines, I instantly fell for the glittery shades: Teenage Dream and Last Friday Night. But after OPI sent me some samples to review, the others won me over in a big way. At first glance, Not Like The Movies may look like your standard silver, but it's actually a light purple and green duochrome that is perfect for those who love to rock an edgier nail. And The One That Got Away is the most beautiful berry shimmer I've seen in a long while.

I've been meaning to do some more swatches and post the pictures - which I still intend to do. So check back soon...

The Katy Perry Collection by OPI launches this month at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard's, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) each.

Even though I already own one of each, I plan on buying (and hoarding) at least two more bottles of the Black Shatter...and I suggest you do the same.

20-30% Off at

Take 20% off your full-price purchase of $100 or more or take 30% off your full-price purchase of $200 or more at The offer is valid now through February 20, 2011 (To redeem, enter code 10801122334 at checkout). You're welcome.

I already own this open cardigan in camel - and I've been meaning to pick up some other colors, but it kept slipping my mind. Good thing I'm absent-minded because I just snagged two more (in black and gray) - and I got the 20% off - plus one of the sweaters was half off with some other limited time offer.

Fashion Show Spring&Summer 2011

Hi lovlies~  Today my topic is fashion... after all the dramas last year... I kinda forgot about school for a while... I was planning to study fashion design.. see how that goes... so yeah I already enrolled in one class this coming semester. I actually already taken some sewing classes in HS & college. So I do kinda feel like this class well be a duplicate of what I did before. Though, those were “sewing” class instead of “fashion” class so I suppose it’s different?

I have a friend who’s working in the fashion industry now... I don’t think she took fashion classes before, & her goal was actually not fashion related, but she seems to really like her job now. I was wondering if I should just be like her to find a job in fashion industry & than look for better opportunities once I have some experience. However, her pay is not high, so she seems to be just be there for the experience so she can move forward.

I feel like everything I am interested doesn’t really come with a big paycheck....unless I am famous... lol.. but oh wells, I am just trying out what interests me... hopefully I will eventually find a career that I truly desire.

So I was looking though some fashion shows & I have to say I agree with everyone who loves Alexander McQueen. I love all the dramatic styles, beautiful colors...I love every single piece!

Chanel Spring Summer 2011
I love many pieces from the Chanel collection. Other than classic, there’s also exciting fashion forward pieces. The overall atmosphere of the stage is breathtaking; I cannot imagine a more beautiful stage.

Do you have a favorite designer? 

What’s your dream career?

Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

It's freaking freezing right now in Philadelphia. Thank goodness I had the good sense to ask Santa for a trapper hat last month. If you live in a city or town where the mercury often hovers around (or dips below) zero, please do yourself a favor and pick up one of these toasty warm toppers.

Trapper hats are very trendy right now. But, honestly, I couldn't care less how popular they are because they're so damn practical.

On my walk to and from work, my trapper hat keeps my head so warm that I forget how frigid it is outside. And the (faux) furry flaps protect my ears from the bitter wind. Surprisingly, my trapper doesn't ruin my do like I imagined it would. Once I arrive at the office, just a few seconds of finger styling refreshes and revives my hairstyle. 

Here are some stylish and affordable options:

So does the trapper hat get two manicured thumbs up? You betcha!

Allure's 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?

Jay Chou, his Concert & Green Hornet Movie Review

Hi lovlies.. I have gotten a little sick again.. ooo noo. >_<‘’’ sadness... the weather has gone way hotter this past weekend, so I guess I kinda let loose when I went to sleep ~~ but my sleeping habits are not very good... usually end up waking up in the middle of the night out of coldness because all my blankets are gone! So yeah.. my throat is kinda in pain, better than last night though.. last night it hurts when I swallow anything! >_<

So yeah, lately Jay Chou has been on my mind because my friend just went to his concert on Jan 8, 2011. & his movie just came out~~ So, even though I have not been a huge fan of Jay, I do feel proud that he can represent the stars from Asia to get into Hollywood. ( kinda like Jackie Chan)

Some peaks into his concert ^^

Jay playing Green Hornet music in Concert !

Jay Chou street performance!!! ahhh! I wish I was there!

I remember I commented that Jay Chou was not going to be big for a long time ( a long time ago), I guess I was wrong! He’s still big star today! I thought he was not going to last because all his music seems to be the same, however, it does give him an unique style. Usually when you listen to his music, you know it’s him, even if you never heard it before!

Here is a little review of his movie: Green Hornet

Some say that the movie is funny, which I disagree. There are some fun points and the movie is definitely not serious but it’s not really a comedy like Jackie Chan movies. Personally, I was disappointed that they made Jay look like a nerd in appearance. How often do you see an asian NOT looking like a nerd in US movies? Almost never I say! Except maybe like “ too fast & too furious” but that’s because they’re gangster characters, other than that, asian almost always look like nerds! Jay looked much better in his “ hero” costume, but that’s about it.

I thought Jay’s performance was better than I expected. He doesn’t have too much lines but most of the time he was able to cover up his inadequateness in English. I heard in an interview that he only learn English for a month, if that’s the absolute truth, I do think he did a wonderful job.

Overall I rate this movie 3.85 stars. I think the movie wouldn’t be that much of a hit if it weren’t for Jay Chou ( or maybe Cameron Diaz, though I didn’t realize she’s in it until I watch the movie). It’s suppose to be a comedy but it’s not that funny. The martial arts part were pretty good! ~ It would probably be even better if they didn’t do so much slow motion ( slow motion just seems easier to film?! But don’t take my words for it, I know nothing about filming! ha)

For Jay’s fans, I am sure you will watch it no matter what! I do think it’s way better than his Chinese movies. For non-fans, I do still think it’s worth watching =) !!

Are you a Jay Chou Fan? ( If not, are you a fan now?! ^^)

Do you like the movie? ( Will you watch it?)

My Weekend! ^^

Hi Lovlies! 

So so far my car is still in the shop, I can’t believe it’s taking them so long to fix it... like the parts are not even there.. what da hell are they doing???!?!!? I can understand if they need more time to fix, but at least the parts should be there ?! 

Today’s a holiday but for some reason my company decides it’s NOT... so ha.. I am here.. oh wellz.. 

This weekend I visited a few houses with my hubby~ I am sure it’s a dream for anyone to have a house they can really call their home.. On the weekends, there’s always open houses signs everywhere ~~ so whenever I saw those signs we just drive there & check it out!! 

I think without my hubby probably no one will take us seriously~ ( since I have a baby face.. although I don’t think he looks older than his age, but my friends seems to think so @__@... oh wellz, he’s a guy, it’s ok. haha.)

So I think I actually saw about 4 different places this weekend & I saw more before.. but this time I finally saw a place that I REALLY like!!! The reason I like it is because it have a HUGE master RESTROOM! Master bedroom is a must in any house, but you don’t always get the loyal master restroom! This restroom, not only includes both shower and bath, the bathtub is a massage bathtub, there’s a balcony & a long sink area enough for two plus area for makeup. 

Every room in this place is so private, first floor is living room with small bar & restroom, second floor is family room with dinning room and kitchen, third floor is bedrooms with washer & dryer room. The top floor is the master bedroom with it’s own small fireplace and balcony on both sides. There’s even steps up to the “loyal restroom”!!!

Sorry that I didn’t take any pictures~ so I couldn’t show you.. but I really love it & I would love even more if it’s a single house ( it’s a condo) Price wise I also think it’s good for it’s space & privacy design~ Although I guess I don’t know If I would truly love all the stairs in the years to come if I were to own this place!

So what is your dream home like? =)
