Here is more from my makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic! He is such a great resource!…
Amirah: Hi Mario, my question is about brushes. How important do you
think it is to have a set of expensive make up tools? Or what should
you look for when investing in brushes?
Mario: I think your tools are very important in helping you achieve the
look you desire. A set of about 10-12 brushes should do it. Brushes
make blending shadows and colors easy. A great brush set to try is the

LadyJ: Thank you Kim and Mario for the make-up blog, I really
appreciate it, I’m learning a lot from it! I have one simple question:
1. what is in your opinion, the name of the best product for a
concealer to cover blemish prone scars (my tone is medium golden
beige)? Thank you Kim and Mario!!!
Mario: Lady J – Blemish prone scars should probably be covered with a
cream concealer. It’s hard to recommend an exact shade but if you need
a very full coverage, try Derma Blend makeup. Just use it on spots and
set with a little powder. For a cover-up with less coverage then Derma
Blend, Laura Mercier’s secret concealer and Stila is great too.
Little: Hi Kim and Mario, I’ve tried every type of concealer
(liquid,stick,mineral) and my dark circles still show through. What do
you recommend? My face also has many pores, would a primer and
foundation help smooth over my skin?
Mario: Hey Little, if you have many pores, definitely try a primer. I love…

How do you keep your makeup stay fresh all day without the foundation and eye shadow fading? I use Bare Minerals foundation. And after a couple hours it seems like it just goes away.

Some make up artists don’t believe in primers. They think your natural oils should shine through.
However, when I do my make up myself, I find it really helpful and it makes the foundation glide on really easily and flawlessly.
You guys should check it out!

I love this bronzer and use it all over my face and my cheekbones to
give me definition but also color.
It’s by Smash Box and it’s called Bronze Lights. I get it in the Suntan Matte shade.
I think it’s important to have a
great matte bronzer that doesn’t have shimmer in it because sometimes
shimmer can make you look oily.
I use a smaller brush to contour my
cheekbones and then use a bigger powder brush to give me a little
color on my forehead and nose.
I am a huge fan of Smash Box and this
bronzer. By the way, Smashbox cosmetics is owned by Davis Factor who is also the photographer who shot my Bongo jeans campaign!
