Guess who’s wedding makeup Im doing???

I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be part of such an important and special day in Kim’s life.  I’ve envisioned what she would look like as a bride ever since I began working with her and I finally get to bring that vision of beauty to life!  If you could chose a look for Kim on her wedding day, what would it be?  Radiant/ natural? or sexy/glam?  Leave your comments!

VIRGINE magazine

If you haven’t heard of or seen the new VIRGINE magazine, I recommend you pick up an issue from a newsstand or at least check out their site here.  VIRGINE is the new fashion magazine and I was so excited when they asked me to collaborate on the very first issue.  Check out the beauty shoot below that I worked on with Naty Chabanenko (Women Management), photographed by Bjorn Iooss.  Bjorn also shot the 2011 cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  

The story is titled In Utero, which means before birth.  I gave the model four different looks that were all shot in water.  Oh, and milk, LOL (see below).  Which image do you like best?  I think my favorite is the shot with the red lips.  Let me know what you think!  I will post images soon of the other editorial I worked on in the same issue.  Xo

GET THE FACE! Kim Kardashian’s golden glow

 

I’ve gotten so many Get The Face! requests for Kim’s red carpet makeup that she rocked at the Unbreakable launch party in LA.  She looked gorgeous as always – her hair was slicked back in a pony tail and she wore all black with beautiful gold detailing on the shoulders.  I wanted the makeup to compliment her whole look and to have a nice overall balance so I went with golden tones on her skin and eyes and blended golds with pinks for her lips and cheeks.  Read on for the complete beauty breakdown as I reveal how you too can Get The Face! 😉

 


SKIN

I started with moisturizing Kim’s face and neck using La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion.  I let that settle for about five minutes and then applied Veil Fluid Makeup (No. 3: Sand) by Hourglass all over the skin and blended with a damp sponge.  This foundation gives a luminous, lasting coverage.  Under the eyes, I used By Terry’s Touche Veloutee Concealer in the Cream shade.  I blended a bit on the eye lids as well to prime them for the eyeshadow. To set skin I used a bit of Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder, mainly on the T-zone and over the concealer to set.

EYE  brows, lids and lashes

I filled in Kim’s brows with Brow Tech To Go in Taupe, by Smashbox.  To get the soft, golden shade on Kim’s eyes, first I layered LORAC Tantalizer Baked Bronzer on eyelids and along the  lower lashes. Next I went over it and applied Eye M Glam highlighter (giella.com)  over eyelids, inner corners of eyes and a bit on the brow bones.  Sweep Eye M Glam along lower lashes as well and blend it out to get that smoky golden look.  I defined the upper lash line with By Terry eyeliner in Macassar Brown.  In the waterline or inner rim of the eyes, I used the Eye M Glam all over pencil (available soon) I added a few medium sized individual lashes by Reese Robert (really cool line of eyelashes!) for extra volume and finished off the eyes with two coats of Hypnose Mascara by Lancome on the top and bottom lashes.

CHEEKS

I bronzed the hollows of Kim’s cheeks, along her hairline, jaw and down the center of neck with Terracotta Bronzing powder by Guerlain. I added a hint of color to the apple of the cheeks using LORAC blush in Pink and swept over the apples and along the cheekbones with Giella’s Eye M Glam highlighter.  I used the left-over highlighter on the brush and applied it down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow of her lips.  To add some of that golden glow to the body, I used Sigma’s Body Brush which is plated in 18K gold and has super-soft bristles!  Just dip the brush into the Eye M Glam lid and apply straight to your body.

 


LIPS

I lined Kim’s lips with Josie Maran lipliner in Natural and kept the lip shade in the same color family as the cheeks by applying a blend of MAC lipstick in Half ‘n Half followed by Eye M Glam AcryLip gloss (available soon.)

I finished off Kim’s makeup by spraying a light mist of Rose Water by Dream Organics on her face and neck.  This sets the makeup and gives a fresh, dewy look to the skin.

I hope you have fun trying this look out.  Don’t forget to send me pics of yourself  so I can post them!

Xoxo, Mario 😉


 

A look for spring

This image is from a beauty shoot that I worked on last month.  Beauty shoots have always been my favorite to work on.  Very few things make me happier then a good ol’ beauty shoot, LOL. I gave the model my interpretation of a modern spring look.  I was going for a look that was clean and modern, but also strong. I used minimal product and focused on defining her features softly.  How do you like the lip color I blended? Let me know in the comments if you’d like a breakdown for this look.  X0, Mario

Latest work – VanCleef & Arpels video.

VanCleef & Arpels – The Zip from Paradoxal Inc on Vimeo.

Check out this video I worked on for VanCleef & Arpels. It was directed by Armen Djerrahian who is one of my favorite directors. The amazing piece of jewelry featured is called The Zip. I used Eye M Glam highlighter on her cheekbones to give her skin that radiant glow 😉 Enjoy! Xo, Mario

Pretty in pink – Kim Kardashian cover shoot…

These beauty shots of Kim are so beautiful!  I just found the cover image the other day so I wanted to share it with all of you. The shot below is from the Fusion Beauty campaign that Kim and I worked on together.  Later that day, I changed her makeup for the shot above.  What do you think of the pink lips?  Can you guess which Lip Fusion gloss I used on Kim in the image above?  If so, leave a comment with your answer!  😉  xo, Mario

Check out my new spring cover…

The spring issue of Surface magazine is out on newsstands.  Check out the cover above and inside story.  The makeup I did was very natural and I think it works well for this story.  I wanted her amazing red hair to pop out against her pale skin and the white background.  No contour, no blush, no lipstick, no shadows!  I used a lightweight foundation mixed with a moisturizer all over the skin and then filled in her brows using a blonde pencil.  I lined the eyes, applied two coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes and added highlight to her skin and a tiny bit to the lips.  This makeup is easy to recreate if you’re going for very modern and clean look.  Oh, and how cool is the chair and table???  Enjoy! 😉  Xo Mario
