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.
Hope you all like the current September issue of Surface Magazine. I did the makeup for the cover and cover story inside ;-). I used MAC cosmetics to create the cover look. It was my first time working with photographer Henrique Gendre and he was amazing. In the inside story, the entire set was built out of paper – I will post those pics as soon as I get them! If you get a chance to pick up an issue let me know what you think. Xo Mario
