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

Hope you like it and I look forward to hosting more workshops/seminars in the near future.
As many of you know, Im a big fan of Josie Maran Cosmetics. A few days ago, while in LA I went over to glam Josie up for the Global Green USA Pre Oscar Party. I did her makeup using only Josie Maran products and we even filmed the whole makeup application for you! Stay tuned for the makeup video/tutorial! Xo Mario
Every now and then I look through my “vault” of folders that store endless amounts of images of my old work. It’s great to see all the different shoots I’ve worked on over the years, especially the very early images from when I first started doing makeup. When I see the images, it brings back so many memories – both good and not so good, LOL.
I came across this video clip today. It was one my first TV commercial bookings for Head & Shoulders (Latin market). I was SO excited when I got this job. I also worked on the men’s version of the commercial. Doesn’t it make you want to wash your hair? LOL Xo Mario
Check out this audiocast interview that I did with Ralph Mucci over at The Wedding Planning Audiocast. Its about 30 minutes in length and filled with tons of my beauty advice, tips and tricks! When you’re done listening to my interview, check out the other amazing celebrity makeup artists (Mally Roncal, Billy B, etc) who are feautured on the site too! Have fun Xo Mario
