Looking back… One of my first TV commercial bookings…

Every now and then I look through my “vault” of folders that store endless amounts of images of my old work.  It’s great to see all the different shoots I’ve worked on over the years, especially the very early images from when I first started doing makeup.  When I see the images, it brings back so many memories – both good and not so good, LOL.

I came across this video clip today.  It was one my first TV commercial bookings for Head & Shoulders (Latin market).  I was SO excited when I got this job.  I also worked on the men’s version of the commercial.  Doesn’t it make you want to wash your hair? LOL  Xo Mario

To get the sexy nude lip that I gave Kim last night for her birthday, use Ravishing Lipstick by MAC.  Finish it off by adding MAC lip glass in Florabundance.  🙂 Xo Mario

Happy Birthday to my muse, Kim Kardashian!

I hope you all enjoy the collage I made.  The images are from red carpet events that I did Kim’s makeup for.  As you can see, she keeps me busy boy!  😉  It’s amazing to work with Kim for so many obvious reasons, but whats more amazing and most important is that she’s equally beautiful, inside and out.  Have a Happy and Blessed Birthday Kim!

Check out the pics here from her party in Vegas.  It was a blast!  Stay tuned for a “Get The Face” post of her Vegas Birthday makeup .  Xo Mario

Going for a dramatic eye and lip combo?  Go for it, but keep the skin, cheeks, lashes and brows clean.  Xo Mario

For a precise and very defined crease, use  Nano Eyeliner by Sephora and draw the line right on or under the crease.  With a smalll brush, blend the line going up and/or out.  Keep it in place with a touch of translucent powder.  Xo Mario

TWIP of the day! For a sexy cat eye…

JESSICA

For a sexy and simple cat eye, use a black liquid liner along the top and bottom lash lines.  Wing the corners of the top lines for more drama.  Try Liquid Liner in Perversion by Urban Decay.  It’s matte and its black.  😉   Xo Mario

For natural and matte looking skin, apply Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer by Givenchy before your foundation, or alone.  It’s a mattifying powder gel that makes skin appear smooth and velvet like.  Especially great for oily skin types.

Get the Face! Khloe Kardashian’s wedding makeup: The complete face!

041_weddin_get_000041_weddin_ope_003

As you all know, OK! Magazine had the exclusive for the look I gave Khloe on her wedding.  Many of you have been asking me for more details and product info so I’m going to share the “complete face” with you all in more detail.   Here it is – Get the Face!

MDOKMagKhloeKardashOct09cropped

On Khloe’s skin – To prep skin, I used Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer by Givenchy.  I wanted her overall skin to be more matte, even though I was going for the “glowy Khloe.”  Most of the time, I will later add the glow to the areas I want.  For foundation, I used the new Sheer Matte Foundation by NARS all over skin.  For undereyes, I used a bit of Lift Concealer by Make Up For Ever.  I set everything with a touch of  Translucent Loose Powder by Shiseido.

Khloe’s Brows are filled in with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil.  It comes in a universal shade.  To darken the brow, just apply more.

Khloe’s eye’s –  On the inner rim of the eyes (tear ducts) and on the brow bone, I used b-dazzle eyeshadow by GIELLA.  All over the lid, apply the golden shade from NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Mediterranee.  On the outter corners of the eyes, crease and along lower lash line, use Antiqued eyeshadow by MAC.  To line eyes on top, inner rim and along the outter and lower lash lines, use MAC’s eye pencil in Smolder.  Finish the eyes with Khloe’s favorite mascara on top and bottom lashes – Lancome Hynose Mascara!

Cheeks – To bronze and warm up Khloe’s skin, I used Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine in Amber Matte. On the hollows of the cheeks, I applied Suntan Matte Bronzelights by Smashbox.  For blush, I brushed Orgasm by NARS on the apples of her cheeks.  To add glow to the cheekbones and bridge of nose, use Albatross blush, also by NARS.

Lips – I lined Khloe’s lips with ColorStay Lipliner in Natural, by Revlon.  To finish, use Revlon’s Creme Gloss in Pink Cami.

I hope you try to “get the face!”   If you do, remember to send me pics of the look so I can post them here! xo Mario
