Paying Homage to American Icons

This is a fashion editorial I worked on for Virgine Magazine , entitled “American Icons.”  The story features several models – each one was transformed to recreate the iconic images of the past, like the two examples here that I worked on.   This feature was shot over several weeks and the photos are brilliant.  Everyone from The Beatles to Grace Jones and of course Marilyn Monroe and Brigette Bardot both pictured here with my makeup 😉  I love doing transformational makeup so this shoot was perfect!  One of my favorite shots that I worked on is of Marilyn.  Xo Mario

Getting Violent w/ Khloe’s Lips!

A couple of weeks ago I did Khloe’s makeup and we used these temporary tattoos called Violent Lips.  They come in various colors and fun prints including the Silver Glitteratti pair that I applied on Khloe.

How beautiful does she look?? Sexy in Silver, lol.   I love this pic!  Violent Lips come in so many awesome colors and patterns.  Kendall and Kylie gave me a couple of cool styles that I plan on using soon on a fashion/ beauty editorial.  Xo Mario
