Mario D: Makeup Tips, Techniques, Favorite Products & The Kardashians!

Happy Monday Beauties! ... I'm back with a Part II to my post on Mario Dedivanovic's First NYC Workshop.  If you don't know who Mario D. is, he's most known for being Kim Kardashian's go-to makeup artist!  In the first post, I did an overall recap of  the event, plus gave my honest feedback....but this post will focus on the actual information I gathered while there.  It's always great to get a peek into the process and preferences of a master in your field.  I'll be sharing some of those tid bits with you, along with more photos of Mario's model/celebrity guest, Adrienne Bailon.  By the way, Adrienne Bailon is an ex-girlfriend of Kim K's brother, Rob Kardashian...just in case you cared to know!  But I digress....

For the inside scoop on Mario's techniques, makeup tips, favorite products, and what he had to say about working with the Kardashians, click below to continue reading....

OVERDUE REVIEW: Mario Dedivanovic's First NYC Workshop!

Hey guys! Remember a few months ago when I told you that Kim Kardashian's makeup artist (Mario Dedivanovic) was hosting an NYC workshop?  Well, the workshop took place like 10 moons ago (January 7th of this year), and I was definitely in attendance.  I took plenty of notes, snapped quite a few photos, and learned some techniques that I will soon share with you.  Why am I just now writing a recap?  Well, I wasn't exactly pleased with certain aspects of the event.  On the one hand, I was inspired because Mario did such an amazing job during the demo portion of the workshop, but yet was also disappointed because he didn't follow through with everything that was advertised.

Below, you'll find my of Adrienne Bailon (his model/celebrity guest)....and other random pics from the event.  Click below to continue...

Behind the Scenes with Model E Taylor!

How are you doing guys!? I hope your Friday morning is off to a great start!  ... I wanted to share with you all a photo shoot I did last August with model, E Taylor.  If you watch Love and Hip-Hop, you may have seen her cameo in an episode where Emily worked a fashion show for designer Samantha Black.  This was the one where her on-again off-again rapper/boyfriend, Fab, surprised her by actually showing up and sitting front row and center.  Anyway, E Taylor was one of the models that worked it on the runway...they showed a quick shot of her getting ready backstage too.  You may have also seen E Taylor in the original Basketball Wives promo ad (she was the model they used before they actually started showing the faces of the cast members).  

Anywho, click below to check out our photo shoot...She was seriously the coolest person to work with!

REVIEW: Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35

Happy Friday guys! .... I just started using my new Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35 this week, and already I'm so happy I made the purchase!  Because of my hyperpigmentation, it's imperative for me to use a daily moisturizer with at least an SPF 30 (or risk having the spots become even darker).  But the problem with a lot of these SPF moisturizers is that they can sometimes be too thick and tend to take a while to absorb into the skin.

Such was the case with my Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion (SPF 30), which is what I used prior to purchasing my Neutrogena this week.  It wasn't as thick as say a straight-up sunblock, but it was thick enough for me to want something different.  And guess what? I think I've found that something...and that something may possibly be the best SPF facial moisturizer I've tried so far!  Click below for the full review (pros, cons, price etc)....

"Winning" Magazine Covers So Far This Year...These Celebs Rock!

Happy Friday, Beauties!! ... March has just begun and we're still in the first quarter of 2012, but already there have been some winning, perhaps even iconic magazine covers created.  By now, you've already seen the March 2012 issue of Vogue with Adele on the cover...this girl is giving face (and a little boobs! Have you seen those contoured cheeks?  That thick, bold, sexy winged line and cut-crease action on the eyes?  The soft, pink-colored lips and just below that, the natural dimple in her chin for an added elegant effect?  This is the best I've seen her look!  Miss Adele, aka this year's Grammy Queen is in full diva mode! Oh, and let's not forget to mention her thick bouncy hair flowing in imaginary wind.  Vogue couldn't have chosen a better cover.  Congrats Adele on all your success....and thanks to Vogue for featuring a true talent
