New Work: Kim Kardashian’s True Reflection campaign…

 

I just went on youtube and noticed all of the makeup tutorials on the look I created for Kim’s new True Reflection fragrance ad campaign. Wow, you guys are so quick! LOL. Great job to all of you that made the videos. It was a great experience working on that shoot – I loved creating the old Hollywood-inspired look on Kim. If you haven’t had a chance to see the images or the commercial, take a look at it here.  Also, Kim’s fourth fragrance, True Reflection is definitely my favorite scent of hers.  Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think.  Xo Mario

***EXCLUSIVE*** Here it is, finally!  The COMPLETE list of products I used on Kim Kardashian to create her wedding look.  Read below to learn how you can Get the Face!

Kims wedding makeupShe looked like a beautiful Angel at the altar

Giving Princess Kimmy some finishing touches 🙂

Skin

To prep Kims skin, I used The Moisturizing Lotion by La Mer all over the face and neck.

I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup by Dior to even out the skin tone.
To cover and highlight under the eyes, I used By Terry’s Touche Veloutee concealer.

I set her makeup using Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder.

Eyes –


I brushed Kim’s brows then filled them in using L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Custom Brow Shaping Pencil in Light Brown.

To define and play up Kim’e eyes, I used Lancôme 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Frenzy.  I swept the light golden shade all over the lids and  I applied the darker shade along her crease with a small liner brush.  I used  the lightest shadow on the brow bone to highlight.

Along the lower lash line,  I swept a touch of the golden/bronze shades, focusing more towards the outer corners.

I lined her eyes (top lid only) using Cover Girl Line Exact Liquid Liner in Very Black.  Start out with a thin line at the inner corner and gradually thicken the line as you go towards the outer corners.  Wing the liner up and out.

To give her lashes (both top and bottom)  more length and volume, I applied two coats of Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara in So Black!

Cheeks

On the apples of cheeks, I applied Lancôme Blush Subtil in Rose Romantique. (A sheer peachy tone)  Smile and sweep right on the apple blending out and up.

To warm up Kims skin and contour her cheeks, I used Guerlain Teracotta bronzing powder. I brushed a bit all along the hairline and  jawline.  I  also applied some along the hollows of her cheeks to contour.

I gave Kim radiant, glowing skin with Giella’s Eye M Glam highlighter.  I applied some along her cheek bones to give a dewey effect, on the bridge of her nose, cupids bow (right above the center of upper lip) and  I also swept it along her decolletage, shoulders and arms. Lastly,  I applied it to the inner corners of her eyes using a small liner brush to brighten and open the eyes.

Lips

I defined her lips using YSL Dessin Des Levres lipliner in Nude Beige followed by Lancôme’s L’Absolu Nu lipstick in Coral Sand. (A sheer peachy lipstick.)

I finished off her lips by adding a touch of shine with Lancôme La Laque Fever lipgloss in Ravishing Coral. (Very pretty color for any skin tone)

To keep Kim looking fresh from the day and into the evening, I used TATCHA Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers.  (They’re all natural and powder free.)

Hope you all like it!  Give it a try and if you do, please send me the pics 😉   Xo Mario

kim kardashian – the wedding makeup

Thank you all for the compliments and comments regarding Kim’s wedding makeup.  The wedding was perfection and Kim was the most stunning, graceful bride.

I have not released any of the wedding makeup details.  People magazine will be the first to get the breakdown of  the look I gave Kim on her wedding day.  Stay tuned for all the details in People Mag – Friday, August 26th.

GET THE FACE! Kim Kardashian’s golden glow

 

I’ve gotten so many Get The Face! requests for Kim’s red carpet makeup that she rocked at the Unbreakable launch party in LA.  She looked gorgeous as always – her hair was slicked back in a pony tail and she wore all black with beautiful gold detailing on the shoulders.  I wanted the makeup to compliment her whole look and to have a nice overall balance so I went with golden tones on her skin and eyes and blended golds with pinks for her lips and cheeks.  Read on for the complete beauty breakdown as I reveal how you too can Get The Face! 😉

 


SKIN

I started with moisturizing Kim’s face and neck using La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion.  I let that settle for about five minutes and then applied Veil Fluid Makeup (No. 3: Sand) by Hourglass all over the skin and blended with a damp sponge.  This foundation gives a luminous, lasting coverage.  Under the eyes, I used By Terry’s Touche Veloutee Concealer in the Cream shade.  I blended a bit on the eye lids as well to prime them for the eyeshadow. To set skin I used a bit of Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder, mainly on the T-zone and over the concealer to set.

EYE  brows, lids and lashes

I filled in Kim’s brows with Brow Tech To Go in Taupe, by Smashbox.  To get the soft, golden shade on Kim’s eyes, first I layered LORAC Tantalizer Baked Bronzer on eyelids and along the  lower lashes. Next I went over it and applied Eye M Glam highlighter (giella.com)  over eyelids, inner corners of eyes and a bit on the brow bones.  Sweep Eye M Glam along lower lashes as well and blend it out to get that smoky golden look.  I defined the upper lash line with By Terry eyeliner in Macassar Brown.  In the waterline or inner rim of the eyes, I used the Eye M Glam all over pencil (available soon) I added a few medium sized individual lashes by Reese Robert (really cool line of eyelashes!) for extra volume and finished off the eyes with two coats of Hypnose Mascara by Lancome on the top and bottom lashes.

CHEEKS

I bronzed the hollows of Kim’s cheeks, along her hairline, jaw and down the center of neck with Terracotta Bronzing powder by Guerlain. I added a hint of color to the apple of the cheeks using LORAC blush in Pink and swept over the apples and along the cheekbones with Giella’s Eye M Glam highlighter.  I used the left-over highlighter on the brush and applied it down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow of her lips.  To add some of that golden glow to the body, I used Sigma’s Body Brush which is plated in 18K gold and has super-soft bristles!  Just dip the brush into the Eye M Glam lid and apply straight to your body.

 


LIPS

I lined Kim’s lips with Josie Maran lipliner in Natural and kept the lip shade in the same color family as the cheeks by applying a blend of MAC lipstick in Half ‘n Half followed by Eye M Glam AcryLip gloss (available soon.)

I finished off Kim’s makeup by spraying a light mist of Rose Water by Dream Organics on her face and neck.  This sets the makeup and gives a fresh, dewy look to the skin.

I hope you have fun trying this look out.  Don’t forget to send me pics of yourself  so I can post them!

Xoxo, Mario 😉

EYES-

To get the soft, golden shade on Kim’s eyes, I used Giella’s EYE M GLAM all over highlighter on the eye lids and tear ducts (or inner corners).  I also highlighted her brow bone (right under the brows) using EYE M GLAM.

I swept Motives Eye Shadow in Cappuccino along the crease of eyes for subtle definition.

Under her eyes and/or along the lower lashes, I used Motives Eye Shadow in Toast.  I blended the shadow with a clean brush to get a very soft and natural smokey look.

I lined and defined the top lids with Style Liner by Dior.  I gradually went thicker with the line towards the outer corners.

I finished off the eyes by first curling the lashes then on both top and bottom lashes, I applied Bionic Mascara in Jet Black by Smashbox.

I bronzed Kim’s face along the hairline and on the hollows of cheeks using Cheekers Bronzer in Golden Tan by Covergirl.

To add a bit of glow to the skin I used Fusion Beauty’s Illumifill along the cheekbones.

On apples of cheeks I swept MAC blush in Fleur Power.

To add the soft pink color to her lips, I applied Colour Rich Lip Colour in Tickled Pink by L’oreal and finished the lips off with Lip Fusion Color Shine in Flirt.

Get The Face! Kim Kardashian – Valentines day Queen of Hearts


Happy Valentines Day!  Here is a Valentines day treat for you all as I promised earlier today.  I love doing this soft and pretty makeup on Kim and apparently you love it too!  I’ve gotten a ton of requests for a “get the face” post for last nights Valentines look.  Hope you try it out and if so, please send in pics to me.  Here’s how you can “Get the Face!”

I started out with Josie Maran Argan Primer Mist on the face.  Once that dries, go on to your foundation. On Kim –DiorSkin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF 25. Use just a bit of this foundation and blend well.  Set your skin with a little of Smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

I filled in Kim’s brows with MAC’s Eye Brows Pencil in Lingering.  Sweep the pencil with light strokes in the direction the hair grows.  Brush through brows for a more blended, natural look.

Using a brush, I applied Sweetheart eye shadow by Josie Maran on the eye lids. Keep the shadow right below the crease.  Next, I gave her a thin line on the upper lid using ARTLINER – Precision Point EyeLiner by Lancome.  Feel free to extend the line out without overdoing it.  Lashes – use one coat of HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara by Lancome.  I added some individual long lashes by Ardell to the outer corners of her eyes.  Follow with another coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes as well.

To warm up and bronze the skin, I used Laguna Bronzing Powder by NARS.  Using a small shadow brush, apply a dab of the bronzer to the crease of eyes and along the lower lash lines.  To make her cheeks pop and to add a gorgeous glow, I swept Powder Blush by NYX Cosmetics in Peach on the apples of the cheeks. For that extra glow on the cheek bones apply N.Y.C. New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust in Opal Sparkle.

Finish off this Valentines look with a sexy and pretty shade of pink on your lips.  Line all over with Sephora’s Nano Lip liner in Pinup Pink and follow with Pure Lipgloss in Petunia, also by Sephora.  Have fun!  Xo Mario

GET THE FACE – Kim Kardashian’s sexy, smokey eye.

 

I did this smokey-eyed look on Kim recently here in NYC for the Three Olive’s Bubble Flavored Vodka party.  Beleive it or not but this was actually the first time that I’ve done an all-black smokey eye on her, so for us, it was a different look.  When I saw the cool outfit she was going to wear, I thought it was the right time to finally do the really dark eye’s I’d been wanting to try on her.  Here’s how you can “get the face:”

Skin – I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer first.  I let her skin absorb that for a couple of minutes before applying Mat Velvet + Matyfying Foundation by Make Up For Ever.  I use this foundation from time to time.  It gives a very velvety and pore-less look to the skin.  For powder, I used very little of Subliminal Purity Mineral Based Loose Powder by Calvin Klein to set the foundation with a powder puff.

I used Dior’s DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer under the eyes after all of the eye makeup was complete.  (When working with black eye shadow, it will almost always fall down a bit and make a mess so clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe, then apply concealer.)

Her eyebrow’s are filled in softly with MAC’s Cork eyeshadow – with more of the focus on the outter corners of the brow.

Eyes – Apply Shu Uemuras Painting Liner Eye Liner in MBlack all over the eye lids and on the lower lash line as well. This is a long-lasting and highly pigmented black cream liner.  To set that eyeliner and blend it up and out towards the crease, I used Lorac’s Eye Shadow in Black.  The inner rim of the eye is lined with MAC’s white eye pencil in Fascinating.  Using all black on the eyes can sometimes make them appear smaller so the white pencil on the inner rim is a great trick for opening your eyes.  Finish off with two or three coats of L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

Cheeks – Apply Desire by NARS ( the perfect pink) on the apples of cheeks and blend well.  The face is framed in Casino Bronzer by NARS.

Lips – I lined her lips with MAC’s lip pencil in Subculutre and used Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Pink Protege.

GET THE FACE: Kim Kardashian, NYC to LA.

 

This look is actually very simple to recreate and doesn’t require so many products.  I did this makeup on Kim in the morning for the Pepsi Max Bullrun rally in NYC and she was able to use it later that evening in LA for the Aces and Angels Celebrity Poker Party that she hosted at the Playboy Mansion.  All it takes for your makeup to last all day and night is some powder and gloss touch ups.  Here’s how to “get the face” –

 

Skin – I started out with a primer (Smashbox photo finish primer) all over her skin.  This primer helps the makeup to last longer on the skin.  After, I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup all over the skin.  I set the foundation with Laura Mercier loose setting powder.  For concealer, I used diorskin sculp lifting smoothing concealer under the eyes and set that with Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

 

Brows –  I filled her brows with MAC’s brow pencil in Lingering, followed by a little bit of MAC’s eyeshadow in cork on the outter corners of the brows.

 

Eyes – Apply b-dazzle by GIELLA custom blend cosmetics on the brow bone and on the tear ducts (inner corner of eyes).  Use Antiqued eyeshadow by MAC all over the lid.  Blend it up to the crease and out a bit past the outter corners of the eyes.  Use antiqued shadow again along the lower lash line and blend.  On the inner rim of the eye, I used MAC’s eyeliner in fascinating.  Try Lancome’s Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes to finish the eyes.

 

Cheeks – To warm up the skin, I used Smashbox bronzer in Suntan Matte around the frame of the face and on the hollows of the cheeks.  For a subtle glow, I applied the Copacabana multiple by NARS on the bridge of the nose and on the cheek bones followed by Peaches blush by MAC on the apples of the cheeks. 

 

Lips are lined and filled in with the #50 lip pencil by Make Up For Ever followed by MAC lipglass in Queen Bee.
