Has anyone seen K. Michelle’s music video for “How Many Times?” It’s a really great song and especially if you’re into real R&B. I did her makeup on the “How Many Times” video (see below). Towards the end of the shoot, I had to mimic broken glass on her shoulder somehow so I used hundreds of swarovski cyrstals in different shapes and sizes. I was so pressed for time but thankfully the manicurist and my assistant Sally helped me to glue all the pieces! You can take a look here. Xo Mario
Some of you may remember the other day when my flight from LA to NYC was delayed. I was praying for a miracle to happen so that I would make it in time to do K. Michelle’s makeup for her live performance on 106th and Park. I do believe in miracles because I got there with a few minutes until show time and I started painting for my life! Thanks Jai for your help! Anyhow, enjoy this video clip of her performing and also of her interview right after. Xo Mario
K.Michelle is another AMAZING and crazy talented singer that I recently worked with! Check out her new music video “Fallin” – another Armen directed piece! K.Michelle was so much fun to work with and she had me cracking up all day -she’s hysterical! I don’t need to talk about the voice as you will witness that once you watch and listen to her video below. This song is being played all over and is a hit for sure.
For the makeup in “Fallin,” I gave K.Michelle a soft, smokey eye using some metallics around the lash lines. I finished her look off with peach on the cheeks and golden, nude lips. I hope you like the makeup and the video. Xo Mario
The video below is a behind the scenes from the Fallin video shoot where you can take a look at me “at work.” LOL enjoy!
“Ay Yo!” I recently worked with Melanie Fiona on her music video for “Ay Yo.” It’s a great song and her voice is incredibly powerful and beautiful! She is hands down one of my favorite female artists. This video was directed by Armen – the super talented photographer/video director. I love collaborating with him because I know that the end result will be flawless.
Check out the video below. For her makeup, I used golden, nude and warm tones with focus on beautiful, dewy skin. I Hope you like it and feel free to let me know what you think of the makeup. Xo Mario
