Workshop on January 16th and pics from the last one!

On January 16th I’ll be hosting another amazing workshop for Industry ArtShops in LA!  Our December 4th workshop went so well and I loved meeting everyone that came.  The Dec 5th workshop was cancelled last minute due to a minor injury on my leg 🙁 but on Sunday the 16th we’re welcoming all who registered for the Dec 5 class AND there are now spots available to register if you want to attend!  To register for the January 16th workshop, CLICK HERE.  Limited Space and only 3 days to register!

Ill be posting a lot more pics and a video from the workshops!   Enjoy 😉


My workshop is only a couple of days away and Im very excited!  My goal for these workshops is to make sure that you all leave that day feeling fulfilled and inspired.  In addition to learning from the makeup demonstrations, career advice and hands on opportunity to build your portfolio with professional model and photographer, I wanted to be sure that you all left with the proper tools and makeup.  I think my goal will be accomplished!  The amazing sponsors have generously sent me all of my favorite products that I’m giving to everyone who attends on Dec 4th and 5th.  You will all be going home that day with the best makeup and brushes worth hundreds of dollars.  Thank you to the sponsors for making this possible.

December 4th – SOLD OUT

December 5th – Theres a FEW spots left that they added.  To register, click here.    You can register for the portfolio event OR the general admission. (General admission means you will not be doing makeup on a model for pictures but will be there for everything else.)  😉  XOXOX  Mario

To soften a bold/stong eye, skip the mascara and false lashes.  Try leaving your lips bare too.  Xo Mario

When wearing colors and patterns, go for classic and natural makeup to emphasize your features.  Your clothes and face should not compete.
