Kim K at the CEW Beauty Awards in NYC

Earlier today in NYC, Kim attended the CEW Beauty Awards.  CEW stands for Cosmetic Executive Women and Kim is definitely that and a whole lot more.  She looked stunning in a one shoulder coral/peach dress and her hair was put up in a simple and elegant style by Michael Silva.  I played up her eyes and lashes and kept the rest of the makeup clean and pretty.  I hope you all like it.  Stay tuned for more info on this look.  Xo Mario

GET THE FACE! Kim K at Leather & Laces, continued…

As promised, here is the complete “Get The Face” breakdown of products that I used on Kim for the Leather & Laces event in Miami.  I hope you try out the look and send me images.  I would love to feature photos of you girls that do your makeup inspired by my “get the face” posts.

On skin-  Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream all over skin first.  NARS sheer glow foundation in Barcelona applied with a sponge.  Under eyes, use Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer in Meduim Vanilla.  Set the face with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder in #2 using very little.

Brows are filled in with Brow Sculpting Pencil by Sephora, in Medium.  Brush them through with the opposite end of the pencil once filled in.

Eyes –  Sweep Josie Maran EyeShadow in Vintage all over the lid.  On the crease and also smoked along the lower lashine, use Cacao EyeShadow, also by Josie Maran.  Line the upper lash line with Sephoras Doe Eyed Felt eyeliner in Black.  L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on top and bottom lashes.  For some added drama, use the long individual false lashes by Ardell on the outter upper corners.

Warm up and frame the face with Smashbox bronzer in Suntanne Matte.  Also brush some on the hollows of the cheeks.  Sweep NYC New York Color Color Wheel in Peach Glow on the apples of the cheeks and a bit across the forehead and chin.

To get that gorgeous, glowing skin, use EYE M GLAM highlighter.  Brush it on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and right on the cupids bow of upper lip.  I also used it on her brow bones and inner corner of her eyes.

Line lips with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Heavy (shimmery nude shade).  Use Captivating Coral lipstick by Motives and follow with Covergirl Wetslicks gloss in Fig.

Giving Kim a fresh look – Get the Face…

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 K’s b-day look…Vegas

kims Bday2

So many of you have been asking me for a “Get the Face” post on this look that I gave Kim… so here it is!  LOL.  I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday.  I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way.  It’s more exciting when they can’t see what i’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.  😉  PS… The other birthday look from LA is coming very soon too!


Skin – I used Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS all over the skin.  Under the eyes and to highlight I used YSL’s Touch Eclat.  To set everything use a touch of Translucent Loose Powder by Shiseido.


Eyebrows are softly filled in with MAC’s eyebrow pencil in Lingering.

Eyes – Urban Decay eyeshadow in Eldorado on eye lids and browbone.  Smog eyeshadow also by Urban Decay on the crease of the eye and outter corners of the lids.  Smolder Eye Kohl by MAC rimming the entire eye and on the inner rims.  Use more liner towards the outter corners.  Using a clean brush, blend along the lashlines, moving up and out.  Apply more liner for intensity if needed.  Finish the eyes with two coats of Lancome’s Hynose Drama Mascara on top and bottom lashes.


Cheeks – On the apples of the cheeks, use Passion blush by Josie Maran.  Skin is bronzed with Josie Maran Bronzing Powder.  Brush it along the hairline, jawline and hollows of cheeks.  To highlight the cheek bones, use Trace Gold blush by MAC.


Lips are lined with MAC’s Cremestick Liner in Summerfruit followed by Lipgelee in Saplicious, also by MAC.

Have fun and take pics!  Xo Mario
