Latest work – VanCleef & Arpels video.

VanCleef & Arpels – The Zip from Paradoxal Inc on Vimeo.

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

Pretty in pink – Kim Kardashian cover shoot…

These beauty shots of Kim are so beautiful!  I just found the cover image the other day so I wanted to share it with all of you. The shot below is from the Fusion Beauty campaign that Kim and I worked on together.  Later that day, I changed her makeup for the shot above.  What do you think of the pink lips?  Can you guess which Lip Fusion gloss I used on Kim in the image above?  If so, leave a comment with your answer!  😉  xo, Mario

Check out my new spring cover…

The spring issue of Surface magazine is out on newsstands.  Check out the cover above and inside story.  The makeup I did was very natural and I think it works well for this story.  I wanted her amazing red hair to pop out against her pale skin and the white background.  No contour, no blush, no lipstick, no shadows!  I used a lightweight foundation mixed with a moisturizer all over the skin and then filled in her brows using a blonde pencil.  I lined the eyes, applied two coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes and added highlight to her skin and a tiny bit to the lips.  This makeup is easy to recreate if you’re going for very modern and clean look.  Oh, and how cool is the chair and table???  Enjoy! 😉  Xo Mario

Harper’s Bazaar w/ Kim K

If you haven’t already seen Kim on the current cover of Bazaar, make sure you check it out!  Its a great interview that you’ll enjoy.  There are many images of Kim in the story, shot by Terry Richardson and one night I had the pleasure of working on set with the iconic photographer.  The image above is the one I worked on.  I gave Kim a pretty look using Dior products 😉  Hope you like it.   Xo Mario

Get The Face! Kim Kardashian on cover of People Style Watch

I’m sure you have already seen Kim K on the cover of the current People Style Watch.  If not, here it is.    In the beauty breakdown below of her cover look, four of the products I used were mentioned but Im going to give you the complete look!  See below to learn how to Get The Face!  😉 xo, Mario

On Skin – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Sand.

By TERRY Touche Veloutee Concealer applied under eyes.

Skin is set with loose powder. I used La Mer’s The Powder in Neutral.

Brows are filled in with Lancomes Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet then brushed out with the opposite side of the pencil.

EYES-

To get the soft, golden shade on Kim’s eyes, I used Giella’s EYE M GLAM all over highlighter on the eye lids and tear ducts (or inner corners).  I also highlighted her brow bone (right under the brows) using EYE M GLAM.

I swept Motives Eye Shadow in Cappuccino along the crease of eyes for subtle definition.

Under her eyes and/or along the lower lashes, I used Motives Eye Shadow in Toast.  I blended the shadow with a clean brush to get a very soft and natural smokey look.

I lined and defined the top lids with Style Liner by Dior.  I gradually went thicker with the line towards the outer corners.

I finished off the eyes by first curling the lashes then on both top and bottom lashes, I applied Bionic Mascara in Jet Black by Smashbox.

I bronzed Kim’s face along the hairline and on the hollows of cheeks using Cheekers Bronzer in Golden Tan by Covergirl.

To add a bit of glow to the skin I used Fusion Beauty’s Illumifill along the cheekbones.

On apples of cheeks I swept MAC blush in Fleur Power.

Her lips are lined with Josie Maran’s lip liner in Blush.

To add the soft pink color to her lips, I applied Colour Rich Lip Colour in Tickled Pink by L’oreal and finished the lips off with Lip Fusion Color Shine in Flirt.

NEW: fashion/editorial makeup

Working on fashion editorials with a talented team and gorgeous models can be very rewarding.  I still get the same excitement, after 10 years, when a story I worked on is published.  I love to see the final images laid out as a story.

This is my latest story shot by Henrique Gendre in the current issue of Surface Magazine.  The gorgeous face you see is model Ali Stephens and styling was done by Gregory Wein.  The shoot was all about bright solids so I kept the makeup simple and clean with a strong brow and subtle contour.  For the last couple of shots, I  darkened her eyes with shadow only.

Editorial makeup is very different from celebrity/red carpet/TV, etc.. .  To keep it modern and editorial, I didn’t use any mascara, liner or blush.  Hope you like it!  I will post a Get The Face! for the look below (dark eyes) very soon.  Xo, Mario.

Kourtney Kardashian glows on Lopez Tonight

Earlier in the week I made up Kourtney for her appearance on Lopez Tonight. You can watch the clip above to see the funny interview. I loved Kourts entire look that night!

I went with more natural makeup and gave her cheeks a beautiful glow using Eye M Glam, my favorite all over highlighter of course. For a subtle pop of color, I painted her lips with a sheer peachy/orange shade. Leave a comment and let me know if you like the soft makeup on Kourtney! Xo, Mario.
