***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!
Giving Princess Kimmy some finishing touches 🙂
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.
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!
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.
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)
Hope you all like it! Give it a try and if you do, please send me the pics 😉 Xo Mario
If you haven’t heard of or seen the new VIRGINE magazine, I recommend you pick up an issue from a newsstand or at least check out their site here. VIRGINE is the new fashion magazine and I was so excited when they asked me to collaborate on the very first issue. Check out the beauty shoot below that I worked on with Naty Chabanenko (Women Management), photographed by Bjorn Iooss. Bjorn also shot the 2011 cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The story is titled In Utero, which means before birth. I gave the model four different looks that were all shot in water. Oh, and milk, LOL (see below). Which image do you like best? I think my favorite is the shot with the red lips. Let me know what you think! I will post images soon of the other editorial I worked on in the same issue. Xo
These beauty shots of Kim are so beautiful! I just found the cover image the other day so I wanted to share it with all of you. The shot below is from the Fusion Beauty campaign that Kim and I worked on together. Later that day, I changed her makeup for the shot above. What do you think of the pink lips? Can you guess which Lip Fusion gloss I used on Kim in the image above? If so, leave a comment with your answer! 😉 xo, Mario
The spring issue of Surface magazine is out on newsstands. Check out the cover above and inside story. The makeup I did was very natural and I think it works well for this story. I wanted her amazing red hair to pop out against her pale skin and the white background. No contour, no blush, no lipstick, no shadows! I used a lightweight foundation mixed with a moisturizer all over the skin and then filled in her brows using a blonde pencil. I lined the eyes, applied two coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes and added highlight to her skin and a tiny bit to the lips. This makeup is easy to recreate if you’re going for very modern and clean look. Oh, and how cool is the chair and table??? Enjoy! 😉 Xo Mario
