Im so excited to be hosting another workshop for Industry Art Shops! The last two workshops were amazing and I can’t wait for this next one which will be even better! The date is August 13th, 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Check out the video below from the last workshop if you haven’t already. The workshop is open to all – makeup artists of all levels, inspiring artists and non-makeup artists too… Stay tuned for more info! I will announce my sponsors soon.
Im excited to share this short video with you all! It was shot during my first workshop that I hosted for Industry Art Shops. It’s a recap of the entire day that shows parts of my makeup demo as well as the artist portfolio event and photo shoot afterwards. Hope you like it and I look forward to hosting more workshops/seminars in the near future.
Hey guys! Tomorrow is the workshop in LA and many of you have been asking what the Artist Portfolio Event is and the difference between that and general admission. General admission is for those who want to come and watch me do a full makeup demonstration on a model and hear me speak, answer questions, share my tricks of the trade, etc.
The Artist Portfolio Event is optional and means that after my demo, you are given your own professional model to do makeup on and have her photographed by a professional photographer. You can then use the beauty shot for your portfolio. General admission attendees are welcome to stay and hang out during the artist portfolio event as well. This is a sweet message from a woman who wrote me after the Dec 4th class… she was nervous because she wasn’t a makeup artist:
“Mario, I really want to thank you for all the valuable info that you shared with our class on Dec. 4. You are an amazing Artist with so much talent. We chatted very briefly outside. That was my first professional makeup workshop ever. I knew I was going to be nervous and maybe not understand everything but your spirit is so calm and welcoming I felt so at home with your instruction. You are the best!”
I hope this helped to answer your questions. You have one more day to register, so click here! Xo Mario

To register for the January 16th workshop, CLICK HERE. Limited Space and only 3 days to register!
Ill be posting a lot more pics and a video from the workshops! Enjoy
My workshop is only a couple of days away and Im very excited! My goal for these workshops is to make sure that you all leave that day feeling fulfilled and inspired. In addition to learning from the makeup demonstrations, career advice and hands on opportunity to build your portfolio with professional model and photographer, I wanted to be sure that you all left with the proper tools and makeup. I think my goal will be accomplished! The amazing sponsors have generously sent me all of my favorite products that I’m giving to everyone who attends on Dec 4th and 5th. You will all be going home that day with the best makeup and brushes worth hundreds of dollars. Thank you to the sponsors for making this possible.
December 4th – SOLD OUT
December 5th – Theres a FEW spots left that they added. To register, click here. You can register for the portfolio event OR the general admission. (General admission means you will not be doing makeup on a model for pictures but will be there for everything else.) XOXOX Mario
