I recently collaborated on this shoot for Elle Mexico with genius photographer Adrian Nina. The story features ten “new girls.” They are the industries new generation of models, and future supermodels.
I gave all of the girls a clean, light and fresh look. Using Dior makeup, I focused mainly on the skin and with a very soft hand, I defined the eyes on some girls using shadow and stained the center of their lips . There was no bronzer, lashes or liner in site! I think doing this type of natural makeup is more challenging then doing a glam look. What do you think? Xo, Mario
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
