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.

Fatal Attraction – ELLE Mexico

This fashion story from Elle Magazine (Mexico) was just published.  Alexander Neuman, another very talented photographer shot this along with a few other stories in my book.  You may remember when I twitpic’d a model and asked what she had missing on her face?  You can see here that it was her eyebrows.  😉  Blocking out the eyebrows gives a very edgy, fashion forward look.  For this shoot, I wanted the model to look androgynous and somewhat “hard.”

Will anyone try blocking out their brows this Halloween?  If so, i’d love to see pics!  There are different techniques to do this.  I prefer using a bald cap to cover the natural brow.  How would you do it?  😉 Xo Mario
