For Elton John’s Oscars party, I kept Kim and Kourtney’s makeup simple and feminine – A bronzy glow to their skin paired with soft pink lips and cheeks. I focused on their already gorgeous eyes by adding black liner and mascara along the upper lid and lashes. Xo – Mario

Now thats what I call a commercial! I was so excited when I got called to do the makeup for Go Daddy.com’s new Superbowl commercial featuring Danica Patrick and The NEW Pussycat Dolls. It was a two day shoot directed by Steve Antin (director of “Burlesque” w/ Cher and Christina Aguilera) and we had the best time ever. Danica and The Dolls were awesome and such a pleasure to work with! What do you think of GoDaddy’s new Superbowl commercial? Xo Mario
Here are some pics from the NYC workshop ;-) The video is coming soon too and I’ll post that later today. Thanks again to all who came out to see me (almost 1oo of you!) I’ll always remember that day. Xo
***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
