New Work: Kim Kardashian’s True Reflection campaign…

 

I just went on youtube and noticed all of the makeup tutorials on the look I created for Kim’s new True Reflection fragrance ad campaign. Wow, you guys are so quick! LOL. Great job to all of you that made the videos. It was a great experience working on that shoot – I loved creating the old Hollywood-inspired look on Kim. If you haven’t had a chance to see the images or the commercial, take a look at it here.  Also, Kim’s fourth fragrance, True Reflection is definitely my favorite scent of hers.  Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think.  Xo Mario

 

Announcing My first NYC workshop!

GET THE FACE! kim kardashians wedding makeup *the complete list*

***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!

Kims wedding makeupShe looked like a beautiful Angel at the altar

Giving Princess Kimmy some finishing touches :-)

Skin -

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.

Eyes -


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!

Cheeks -

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.

Lips-

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)

To keep Kim looking fresh from the day and into the evening, I used TATCHA Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers.  (They’re all natural and powder free.)

Hope you all like it!  Give it a try and if you do, please send me the pics ;-)   Xo Mario
