GET THE FACE! Kim K @ Teen Choice Awards

 

This day was so exciting for me, as it was the first time I saw Kim as a blonde.  I was pleasantly surprised!  I had so much fun doing her makeup for the Teen Choice Awards.  It was almost like I was doing another person!  I also did Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie that day too.  They all looked so beautiful 🙂  People magazine (out on stands right now) interviewed me as well to get the makeup scoop.  Check out the image below and read more here to Get The Face!

 

Skin – I started out with one of my favorite moisturizers – Ultimate Youth Creme by Estee Lauder.  For foundation, I went with Dior Nude Hydrating Glow Foundation followed by NARS pressed powder.  I used Make Up For Ever Lift concealer under the eyes.

Eyes – Use Chopper eye shadow by Urban Decay all over the lid. Sweep Mac’s eye pencil in fascinating along the inner rim of the eye.   Apply Cork eye shadow by MAC with a Qtip along the lower lash line.  On the inner corner of the eyes, use B-dazzle by GIELLA.   Lancôme Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Eyebrows are slightly filled in with lingering brow pencil by MAC then blended and softened with a Qtip.

Cheeks- Lancôme Star Bronzer in Bronze Rich framing the entire face and on hollows of cheeks.  Apply some to the neck and chest area as well.  Brush Orgasm by NARS on the apples of the cheeks.

Lips – Fill in lips with Spice liner by MAC and follow with MAC’s Dazzleglass in Smile.  😉  Have fun!

 

 

Get the Face! Adrienne Bailon – Steppin’ Out.

 

 

Here it is girls!  I’ve gotten so many “get the face” requests for this look I gave Adrienne Bailon.  This shoot was for the cover of “Steppin’ Out” magazine and we had so much fun working that day.  As you all know, Adrienne’s highly anticipated solo album and single, “Super Bad” will be coming out soon and I’m super excited!  Stay tuned for a lot more “get the face” with Adrienne Bailon…

Adrienne loves to play around and expirement with different makeup looks, so for this shoot we decided to play up the eyes with darker shadows and keep the lips light and matte.  Here’s how I did it –

On skin, use Keihl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer all over.  Follow with Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Foundation.  Set the makeup with a bit of loose powder by NARS.  Use Stila Perfecting concealer under they eyes.

Brows are filled in with Lingering brow pencil by MAC and blended lightly with a Q-tip.

Eyes – I used Urban Decay Cream Eyeshadow in Whipped on the eyelids only.  On the crease and outter corner of the eyes, use Walnut shadow by Smashbox and blend well.  Line the upper lid with Smolder by MAC and smudge towards the outter corners.  Use smolder again on the inner rim of the eyes, but starting at the center of the eye and going to the outter corner again.  On the inner corners of the inner rim, use B-dazzle pencil by GIELLA.  To smoke the eyes along the lower lash line, use Envy by Smashbox with a brush.  Start with a little and build for more intensity.  Blend it out to elongate the eyes.  Finish with two coats of Loreal’s Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

Cheeks –  To warm up her skin and contour, I used Casino bronzer by NARS all around the frame of the face and on the hollows of the cheeks.  For blush, I applied Orgasm by NARS to the apples and blended out.  For highlight, I brushed Rose Gold Illuminating finishing powder by STILA on the cheek bones and bridge of nose.  I also put a dab of it right on the brow bone (under the brow).

Lips are lined with Subculture by MAC.  I custom blended the lipstick myself at the GIELLA makeup counter at Henri Bendel and I named it “Bailon Besos.”  Its very creamy and moisturizing!  Comment or email me to find out how to get the lipstick.

I hope you all try this look out and please send me pics!  xo – Mario

GET THE FACE! Kim’s LUXE PALETTE

 

 

You guys may remember these images from Kim’s blog post that she titled “Dream Team Have me Ready in a New York Minute.” http://kimkardashian.celebuzz.com/2009/07/dream-team-have-me-ready-in-a.php.  Sometimes these things happen and there is no other option but to make it work as best you can in as little time as possible. (In this case, the very talented Michael Silva and I glammed her up in 15 minutes)  People Magazine recently asked me to share with them my inspiration for that look as well as the whole makeup break-down.   Click this link to get the look –http://www.peoplestylewatch.com/people/stylewatch/gallery/0,,20187290,00.html#20653772 or read below.

GET KIM’S LUXE PALETTE (From People.com)

“My inspiration in one word was prestige,” explains Kardashian‘s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic of the look he gave her for a recent MTV appearance. “I was inspired by the attention-grabbing texture and color of the bright blue top Kim had on when I saw her.”
How to Do It
1: Use Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup in 050 all over the skin, followed by a touch of Nars pressed powder and Diorskin Sculpt Concealer in 003 under the eyes.
2: Dust Josie Maran Eye Shadow in Beach on the eyelids and brow bone. Then trace upper lids’ outer corners with M.A.C Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black.
3: Smudge lower lash line using a Q-tip with a bit of the copper shade from the NARS Surabaya Duo Eyeshadow followed by a couple of coats of Lancome Hypnose mascara.
4: Trace lips with Lip Pencil in Spice and apply Dazzleglass in Smile, both by M.A.C.

I’m Loving… Josie Maran Cosmetics!

 

Josie Maran recently sent me some goodies from her environmentally freindly makeup line and and I’m LOVING it!  I first heard of Josie’s makeup when I was in Miami and searching for new and different makeup remover wipes.  At Sephora, one of the girls recommended the Bear Naked Wipes by Josie Maran.  They smell really nice, are made with healty and natural ingredients and your skin feels fresh and clean after wiping with them.  Oh, and a portion of every package goes to protecting polar bears! 😉

You may recognize Josie Maran from her successful career as a  top model.  She was the face of Maybelline for nearly a decade, featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for three years in a row and she was also a GUESS girl!  Needless to say, top models like herself know their stuff when it comes to makeup because of all the years working with and learning from amazing makeup artists, day in and day out.  Trust me, they’ve got some tricks up their sleeves, LOL. 

The bronzy packaging for Josie Maran Cosmetics is one the nicest that I’ve seen out there – sleek, simple and lightweight.  I’m going to share some of my favorite products from the line and help spread Josie’s philosophy – “luxury with a conscience.”

 

 Finger Paints in Sweet – You can use your fingers to appy these shimmery colors to eyes, lips and cheeks!  Apply the lightest shade under your brow bone and to the center of your lip to highlight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eye Shadow in Beach – This eye shadow may be my new favorite color right now.  It’s a shimmery champagne or pale sand shade.  Looks gorgeous on the eyelids and you can apply it wet or dry.  Texture is velvety.  Love it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cream Blush in Sunset – This is a coral shade cream blush that glides on sheer and looks natural.  I love it on the apples of cheeks.  For a super natural look, dab some on your lips and blend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Argan Oil – This is a light-weight oil grown organically in Morocco packed with tons of Vitamin E and fatty acids.  For a dewy look, apply to the apples of your cheeks and/or cheekbones.  Soften and heal your cuticles with it, or put it on split ends!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bear Naked Wipes – Dont leave home without them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you get a chance to try Josie Maran’s products and if you do, please let me know what you think!

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.

My Faves for Fall’s Face –

So what exactly is Fall’s Face?  I’ve asked myself this question over and over again, season after season.  On one runway, you’ll see pale skin with smokey eyes, on another a bold lip and bronzed skin.  Following makeup trends can be confusing and overwhelming to most people but it shouldn’t be.  Try different products and looks this fall and if you’re not loving it, just wipe it off. 

I’m going to share some of my favorites products that I’ll be using this Fall.  I’m definitely going to be feauturing some bold and matte lip colors paired with flawless, semi-matte skin and of course the “perfect” brow.  No worries for you smokey eyed girls out there because dark and sultry eye shadows are in and I can’t wait to start using them.  It’s going to be feminine, flawless and fun this Fall!! 

 

NARS Makeup Primer w/ SPF 20.  This primer is lightweight, moisturizing and will help prepare your skin for a flawless makeup application.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup w/ SPF 10.   This is a natural and hydrating liquid foundation that will give you coverage and last all day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

shu uemura Face Powder Matte.  This loose powder leaves your complexion with a natural and matte finish.  It comes with a powder puff so you can press it onto the skin to set your makeup.  Gives that airbrushed finish that I love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lancôme Tropiques MinÉrale Mineral Smoothing Pressed Bronzer.  It’s a bronzer, blush and finisher.  It will add a touch of bronzed color and approve your skins appearance.  Also has an SPF 15.  Comes in different shades – my fave is Natural Suntan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dior Powder Brow Pencil.  It’s a long wearing powder brow pencil that defines softly.  No hard edges.  I like to use a dab of powder shadow on the outter corners over it for extra staying power.

 

 

 

 

Calvin Klein Endless Creme – Creme Concealer.  We all know I’m crazy for creamy concealer.  Its conditioning, looks natural and reduces the appearance of fine lines.  Try some on the lips too – makes a great nude lip shade.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NARS Concealer.  Love this for covering up blemishes.  For hard-to-hide undereye’s, apply a dab to the area and follow with a cream or liquid concealer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calvin Klein Tempting Glimmer Sheer Creme Eyeshadow.  It’s high shine, super smooth and sexy.  Try Champagne Satin all over the lid for day or Vinyl Indigo when the sun goes down.  Set it with a dab of translucent loose powder.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LORAC Color Me Couture Eye Shadow Palette.  The perfect neutrals and golds for your eyes.  Smoke up your eyes with these shimmery shades.  Use the shimmery black as liner or shadow or use all of them at once. 

 

 

 

 

 

 Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow.  The Ultimate deep and dark smokey eye that will get you noticed.  Truly is waterproof but can smudge nicely.  Go for a nude or sheer lip with this eye shadow to keep it looking feminine and pretty.

NARS Lipstick in Sephora Flame.  It’s a rich and deep red-burgandy shade.  The texture is semi-matte but very velvety.  This shade will give you the “look at me” lips.  For a softer, stained look, apply just a bit of it to the center of lips and blend out.  Love this lip with a clean eye and lots of mascara.

All of these products are can be purchased at Sephora or www.sephora.com.  Have fun with your Fall face and send me pics of yourself with any of these products on.  I’d love to see how you all create your own makeup trends.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Profil Magazine Cover and Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia/Hungaria.

This beauty story that I worked on just came out on the cover of Profil magazine.  It’s also been published in Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia and Bulgaria (how random, right?).  The shoot was so much fun to work on and I’m very happy with the end result.  My freinds/photographers Ron Contarsy and Seth Karecha collaborated on this story together and Deycke Heidorn did the amazing hair.  I have worked on a few different fashion and beauty shoots with Ron and Seth and they’re definitely one of my favorite teams to work with.

I remember being excited for this shoot when I heard that Aleksandra Martynyuk was booked as the model.  I’ve worked with her on a few shoots as well over the past couple of years.  She has beautiful fair skin and is such a sweet girl! 

The inspiration for the makeup came from the big flower head peices.  Deycke and myself collaborated together to determine which makeup and hair looks would go best with each flower.  Oh, and here’s a little secret makeup trick for you – I used the old Hollywood face tape to really pull the brows up and open up the eyes.   🙂  Hope you like it!

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.
