For Elton John’s Oscars party, I kept Kim and Kourtney’s makeup simple and feminine – A bronzy glow to their skin paired with soft pink lips and cheeks. I focused on their already gorgeous eyes by adding black liner and mascara along the upper lid and lashes. Xo – Mario

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
I was going through images in my laptop and saw this shot of superstar DJ/model Sky Nellor. This was a advertising shoot I worked on for the Ricardo Rojas Salon in NYC, featured in Vogue. Ricardo and I have worked with Sky (his muse) many times over the years and together, they’re so much fun to be around. Check out that bed head – I love it! A natural look for everyday, LOL. Xo Mario
