Now thats what I call a commercial! I was so excited when I got called to do the makeup for Go Daddy.com’s new Superbowl commercial featuring Danica Patrick and The NEW Pussycat Dolls. It was a two day shoot directed by Steve Antin (director of “Burlesque” w/ Cher and Christina Aguilera) and we had the best time ever. Danica and The Dolls were awesome and such a pleasure to work with! What do you think of GoDaddy’s new Superbowl commercial? Xo Mario
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
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
This shoot for Beach Bunny swimwear, photographed by the amazing Yu Tsai was so much fun to work on! Check out the video below and watch Cameron Russell take you on a glam safari. The gorgeous hair was done by Syd Curry. I gave Cameron sexy, smokey eyes using bronze and nude shades. Stay tuned for the images of the campaign that I’ll post soon. Enjoy. Xo, Mario.
