Welcome to my first blog post – “GET THE FACE”

Hey guys…  I know it took me a while to finally start my blog, but here it is!!  I’m going to start off with a “Get the Face” post.  This is one of my favorite looks that I’ve created for Kim Kardashian and I’ve been getting tons of messages and questions on this look, so here we go baby!!  Read below for the products I used.

Eyes – DuWop duet eye shadow in chai (the lighter shade) all over the lid and on the brow bone.  MAC eyeshadow in Brun in the crease.  MAC eyeliner in Feline on top lid.  GIELLA b-dazzle shadow on inner corners of eyes.  MAC eyepencil in Fascinating on the inner rim of the eye.  Brun by MAC swept softly under the eye.  TONS of mascara on top and bottom lashes.  I filled in the brows with MAC brow pencil in Lingering.

Cheeks – NARS blush in desire on the apples of cheeks.  Smashbox bronzer in Suntan Matte on the hollow’s of the cheeks and framing the face, softly.  For the glow on the cheekbones, Stila illuminating powder in Gold.

Lips – MAC creme d’ Nude lipstick.  Make Up For Ever lip pencil in #50.  You can use a gloss for this look but I didn’t because the lipstick is very creamy.

Have fun with it and let me know how it goes!

XO Mario D

    So you’re the reason why Kim has been looking extra wonderful lately! You do beautiful, beautiful work 🙂 The cheeks here are so absolutely amazing.

    hello Mario! it’s great to find all your tips and secrets on your blog.
    I was wondering, you mentioned “TONS of mascara ” for this look on Kim but she’s surely wearing fake eyelashes in this pic… they can’t possibly reach the eyebrow naturally, or can they?

    so, what brand of lashes are they?

    Hi Troy, You are a wonderful fabulous makeup artist ,I love the way you do your makeup so well, a one and truly top artist.

    One thing I must add though, in most of your tutorials and ‘get the looks’ you never seem to mention the types of false lashes that they are wearing.

    Hope you can add them on the next time, we love our lashes too to complete the fab looks you create.

    Thank you so much and now I can’t wait for more of your fab work. Always wanted to see if you had a blog!

    Shana, you can see all the foundation and prep Mario uses on Youtube. Search “Kim Kardashian makeup” and you’ll see a 3-step video Mario and Kim made about getting “the look”. He even talks about his favorite brushes and applicators! Hope this helps.
