The “Get the Face” girls…

Hey!  Recently, a few girls sent me messages saying that they have tried to replicate the makeup from one of my “Get the Face” posts and sent me pics.  I was so excited and flattered when I saw the images so I asked my Twitter and Facebook freinds to send me pics of them if they had tried one of my “Get the Face” looks.  The pics came through and here they are!  Some are makeup artists, aspiring makeup artists and some are not, but regardless of that – they are all beautiful!  Thank you girls for having fun and trying out one my looks!

There were a few girls that tried Adrienne’s look that I gave her for “Steppin’ Out.”

Thanks again to all of you who sent me images!  You all look amazing! xo Mario

GET THE FACE! Kim K @ Teen Choice Awards

 

This day was so exciting for me, as it was the first time I saw Kim as a blonde.  I was pleasantly surprised!  I had so much fun doing her makeup for the Teen Choice Awards.  It was almost like I was doing another person!  I also did Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie that day too.  They all looked so beautiful 🙂  People magazine (out on stands right now) interviewed me as well to get the makeup scoop.  Check out the image below and read more here to Get The Face!

 

Skin – I started out with one of my favorite moisturizers – Ultimate Youth Creme by Estee Lauder.  For foundation, I went with Dior Nude Hydrating Glow Foundation followed by NARS pressed powder.  I used Make Up For Ever Lift concealer under the eyes.

Eyes – Use Chopper eye shadow by Urban Decay all over the lid. Sweep Mac’s eye pencil in fascinating along the inner rim of the eye.   Apply Cork eye shadow by MAC with a Qtip along the lower lash line.  On the inner corner of the eyes, use B-dazzle by GIELLA.   Lancôme Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Eyebrows are slightly filled in with lingering brow pencil by MAC then blended and softened with a Qtip.

Get the Face! Adrienne Bailon – Steppin’ Out.

 

 

Here it is girls!  I’ve gotten so many “get the face” requests for this look I gave Adrienne Bailon.  This shoot was for the cover of “Steppin’ Out” magazine and we had so much fun working that day.  As you all know, Adrienne’s highly anticipated solo album and single, “Super Bad” will be coming out soon and I’m super excited!  Stay tuned for a lot more “get the face” with Adrienne Bailon…

Adrienne loves to play around and expirement with different makeup looks, so for this shoot we decided to play up the eyes with darker shadows and keep the lips light and matte.  Here’s how I did it –

On skin, use Keihl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer all over.  Follow with Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Foundation.  Set the makeup with a bit of loose powder by NARS.  Use Stila Perfecting concealer under they eyes.

Brows are filled in with Lingering brow pencil by MAC and blended lightly with a Q-tip.

Eyes – I used Urban Decay Cream Eyeshadow in Whipped on the eyelids only.  On the crease and outter corner of the eyes, use Walnut shadow by Smashbox and blend well.  Line the upper lid with Smolder by MAC and smudge towards the outter corners.  Use smolder again on the inner rim of the eyes, but starting at the center of the eye and going to the outter corner again.  On the inner corners of the inner rim, use B-dazzle pencil by GIELLA.  To smoke the eyes along the lower lash line, use Envy by Smashbox with a brush.  Start with a little and build for more intensity.  Blend it out to elongate the eyes.  Finish with two coats of Loreal’s Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

Cheeks –  To warm up her skin and contour, I used Casino bronzer by NARS all around the frame of the face and on the hollows of the cheeks.  For blush, I applied Orgasm by NARS to the apples and blended out.  For highlight, I brushed Rose Gold Illuminating finishing powder by STILA on the cheek bones and bridge of nose.  I also put a dab of it right on the brow bone (under the brow).

Lips are lined with Subculture by MAC.  I custom blended the lipstick myself at the GIELLA makeup counter at Henri Bendel and I named it “Bailon Besos.”  Its very creamy and moisturizing!  Comment or email me to find out how to get the lipstick.

I hope you all try this look out and please send me pics!  xo – Mario

GET THE FACE! Kim’s LUXE PALETTE

 

 

You guys may remember these images from Kim’s blog post that she titled “Dream Team Have me Ready in a New York Minute.” http://kimkardashian.celebuzz.com/2009/07/dream-team-have-me-ready-in-a.php.  Sometimes these things happen and there is no other option but to make it work as best you can in as little time as possible. (In this case, the very talented Michael Silva and I glammed her up in 15 minutes)  People Magazine recently asked me to share with them my inspiration for that look as well as the whole makeup break-down.   Click this link to get the look –http://www.peoplestylewatch.com/people/stylewatch/gallery/0,,20187290,00.html#20653772 or read below.

GET KIM’S LUXE PALETTE (From People.com)

“My inspiration in one word was prestige,” explains Kardashian‘s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic of the look he gave her for a recent MTV appearance. “I was inspired by the attention-grabbing texture and color of the bright blue top Kim had on when I saw her.”
How to Do It
1: Use Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup in 050 all over the skin, followed by a touch of Nars pressed powder and Diorskin Sculpt Concealer in 003 under the eyes.
2: Dust Josie Maran Eye Shadow in Beach on the eyelids and brow bone. Then trace upper lids’ outer corners with M.A.C Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black.
3: Smudge lower lash line using a Q-tip with a bit of the copper shade from the NARS Surabaya Duo Eyeshadow followed by a couple of coats of Lancome Hypnose mascara.
4: Trace lips with Lip Pencil in Spice and apply Dazzleglass in Smile, both by M.A.C.

GET THE FACE – Kim Kardashian’s sexy, smokey eye.

 

I did this smokey-eyed look on Kim recently here in NYC for the Three Olive’s Bubble Flavored Vodka party.  Beleive it or not but this was actually the first time that I’ve done an all-black smokey eye on her, so for us, it was a different look.  When I saw the cool outfit she was going to wear, I thought it was the right time to finally do the really dark eye’s I’d been wanting to try on her.  Here’s how you can “get the face:”

Skin – I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer first.  I let her skin absorb that for a couple of minutes before applying Mat Velvet + Matyfying Foundation by Make Up For Ever.  I use this foundation from time to time.  It gives a very velvety and pore-less look to the skin.  For powder, I used very little of Subliminal Purity Mineral Based Loose Powder by Calvin Klein to set the foundation with a powder puff.

I used Dior’s DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer under the eyes after all of the eye makeup was complete.  (When working with black eye shadow, it will almost always fall down a bit and make a mess so clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe, then apply concealer.)

Her eyebrow’s are filled in softly with MAC’s Cork eyeshadow – with more of the focus on the outter corners of the brow.

Eyes – Apply Shu Uemuras Painting Liner Eye Liner in MBlack all over the eye lids and on the lower lash line as well. This is a long-lasting and highly pigmented black cream liner.  To set that eyeliner and blend it up and out towards the crease, I used Lorac’s Eye Shadow in Black.  The inner rim of the eye is lined with MAC’s white eye pencil in Fascinating.  Using all black on the eyes can sometimes make them appear smaller so the white pencil on the inner rim is a great trick for opening your eyes.  Finish off with two or three coats of L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

Cheeks – Apply Desire by NARS ( the perfect pink) on the apples of cheeks and blend well.  The face is framed in Casino Bronzer by NARS.

Lips – I lined her lips with MAC’s lip pencil in Subculutre and used Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Pink Protege.

GET THE FACE: Kim Kardashian, NYC to LA.

 

This look is actually very simple to recreate and doesn’t require so many products.  I did this makeup on Kim in the morning for the Pepsi Max Bullrun rally in NYC and she was able to use it later that evening in LA for the Aces and Angels Celebrity Poker Party that she hosted at the Playboy Mansion.  All it takes for your makeup to last all day and night is some powder and gloss touch ups.  Here’s how to “get the face” –

 

Skin – I started out with a primer (Smashbox photo finish primer) all over her skin.  This primer helps the makeup to last longer on the skin.  After, I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup all over the skin.  I set the foundation with Laura Mercier loose setting powder.  For concealer, I used diorskin sculp lifting smoothing concealer under the eyes and set that with Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

 

Brows –  I filled her brows with MAC’s brow pencil in Lingering, followed by a little bit of MAC’s eyeshadow in cork on the outter corners of the brows.

 

Eyes – Apply b-dazzle by GIELLA custom blend cosmetics on the brow bone and on the tear ducts (inner corner of eyes).  Use Antiqued eyeshadow by MAC all over the lid.  Blend it up to the crease and out a bit past the outter corners of the eyes.  Use antiqued shadow again along the lower lash line and blend.  On the inner rim of the eye, I used MAC’s eyeliner in fascinating.  Try Lancome’s Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes to finish the eyes.

 

Cheeks – To warm up the skin, I used Smashbox bronzer in Suntan Matte around the frame of the face and on the hollows of the cheeks.  For a subtle glow, I applied the Copacabana multiple by NARS on the bridge of the nose and on the cheek bones followed by Peaches blush by MAC on the apples of the cheeks. 

 

Lips are lined and filled in with the #50 lip pencil by Make Up For Ever followed by MAC lipglass in Queen Bee.

Get the Face! Kim K – Maxim Hot 100.

 

Hey guys… For the Maxim Hot 100 event, Kim wore an all while dress and the hair was pulled back so I definitely wanted to use alittle bit of color on her eyes and green is my favorite color.  I really like how this look came out on her and it photographed beautifully.  When using a color on the eyes, keep the cheeks and lips soft and pretty.  Here’s how to get the face…

Skin – Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation by Make Up For Ever in Neutral Beige.  GIELLA concealer in #2.  Set the face and under the eyes with Make Up For Ever HD translucent powder.

Eyes – Golden Olive pigment by MAC on lids.  Humid eyeshadow by MAC in the crease and blended on the lower lashine.  Electric Edge Liquid Eyeliner Marker Pen by Calvin Klein in Electric Black on the upper lid and winged out alittle on the outter corner.  GIELLA B-dazzle eyepencil on the inner corners (tear ducts) and on the inner rim of the eye.  Two coats of L’oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black, top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks – Rock and Republic contrived pressed blush in Call Me on the apples of the cheeks.  Apply Summer Affair Bronzing Powder by Calvin Klein framing the face lightly.

Lips – No lip liner.  Just a clear gloss 😉   Let me know how it comes out if you try it!

 

 

GET THE FACE! Adrienne Bailon on the set of Fabulous’ music video.

I recently did Adrienne Bailon’s makeup for an appearance in Fabulous’ music video and used all NARS makeup to “get the face.”  She was wearing a beautiful bright yellow dress so I went for a bronzed, sunkissed look with a smokey eye.  I began working with Adrienne when she was a Cheetah Girl about a year and a half ago and she’s one of my favorites!  She loves makeup! 😉

GET THE FACE – All products by NARS

Skin – The new Firming Foundation all over skin and I set it with loose powder.  I mixed the new Duo Concealer under her eyes and on eyelids only.

Eyes – Duo Eyeshadow in Scorching Sun.  Use the golden color on the brow bone and the more orangy color all over the lid.  In the crease I used Surabaya Duo Eyeshadow (the lighter shade in the crease and the darker blended on the outter corners) Also, use the darker shade to smoke on the lower lid.  I lined the upper and inner lids with Blackmoon liner.  The brows are filled in with the Jodhpur brow pencil.  Several coats of the Black Orchid Mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks – To contour her face, I used the Casino bronzing powder.  If you have lighter skin, try the Laguna color.  For blush, I used Orgasm on the apples of the cheeks and to highlight, I blended The Multiple in Maldives on the cheek bones and alittle on the bridge of her nose.

Lips are lined with Bomeo lip pencil, followed by Barbarella lipstick and Orgasm lip gloss.

Try it out… its a good look for evening 😉

Hey guys…  I know it took me a while to finally start my blog, but here it is!!  I’m going to start off with a “Get the Face” post.  This is one of my favorite looks that I’ve created for Kim Kardashian and I’ve been getting tons of messages and questions on this look, so here we go baby!!  Read below for the products I used.
