Hey guys,

My marvelous makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic answered a TON of your
questions after I posted his makeup videos. Here is the first batch,
which focuses on eye makeup…

Jytza: I was wondering what you think of colored eyeliner and colored
mascara. I’m tired of the basic black and would like a pop of color
without looking tacky…what would you recommend for someone who has
brown eyes like me or Kim?

Mario: I think auburn/burgundy mascara would look great with brown
eyes.  Try green eyeliner – that usually looks good with brown eyes..I
like the MAC’s technakohl liner in Antiquity.   Kevyn Aucoin makes a
great burgundy shade of mascara and Lorac makes a nice Auburn one too.

Mae: Hey Mario! Thanks for answering our make up questions. I use a
regular pencil eye liner. How do you keep it from smudging throughout
the day? And second, which eye shadow colors look good on medium tan,
skin tones?

Mario: Hey Mae, before you apply your pencil on the upper lid, use an
eye shadow primer or some foundation/concealer on the lid and dust some
loose powder over it to set it.  Follow with the liner.  You could also
apply the liner, then set it with a translucent, no color powder.  If
the liner on the inner rim of your eye isn’t staying, switch to a
waterproof  one like the powerpoint pencil from MAC.  It lasts all day.

OfficialGirl09: Hi Mario! I only use liquid eyeliner and I wanted to
know what is the best one? I’ve always used “Almay” and I love it
because it last long, but it smears a little on the bottom lid. Help!

Mario: Hey OfficialGirl09, I like using liquid eyeliners that are matte
and that can blend easily once they dry.  The one I’m currently using
is by MAC.  To prevent smearing on the bottom, again – make sure the
skin has makeup and powder on before.  Powder will really help to
prevent smudges.

(There are a bunch more answers after the jump!)

    Is the blush by Kevyn Aucoin called “Jadore” like he stated on the blog or “Shadore” which is the only name that comes up when I checked out his blush products.
