Making up singer-songwriter Jadyn Maria. Get the Face…

This gorgeous face is Jaydn Maria, a new Universal/Motown artist.  She’s a singer, songwriter and she’s got porcelain skin!!!  I did Jaydn’s makeup recently for the MTV VMA’s where she walked the carpet with Ne-Yo (pics below) and for some fashion week events.  After twitpic-ing and facebooking the pic above, I got so many “get the face” requests.  How pretty is she with the pearcing blue eyes, porcelain skin and lips!?!?!  Heres how to get the face:

Here’s a cute clip of Jadyn blogging right after we finished makeup:  Jadyn Maria on YouTube

Skin – Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation set with NARS loose powder.  Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer under eyes.

Eyes – Brows are filled in with Cork eye shadow by MAC.  For this smoky eye, use Inspiration eyeshadow by LORAC all over the lids and blend it out towards the ears.  Use the same shadow along the lower lash line.  Line the top and bottom of the eyes with Smolder pencil by MAC and blend.  Apply Carbon shadow by MAC to the outter corners of the eyes (top and bottom).  Use GIELLA b-dazzle eyeshadow on the inner corners to open and seperate eyes.  Loreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on top and bottom lashes to finish.

Cheeks – Brush Desire blush by NARS on the apples of the cheeks and Candlelight highlighting powder by Kevyn Aucoin on the cheekbones.

Lips – Line and fill in lips with Subculture by MAC, followed by Dazzleglass in Smile -also by MAC.

Have fun! Xo -Mario

Front Row Makeup for Fashion Week …

For the past 8 years or so during fashion week, I would normally work quite a few shows, or a few too many.  This was the first time that I didnt do any models for the shows at all!  Instead, I was booked solid and back to back working with my beautiful celebrity clients who were attending the shows, parties and hitting the red carpets all over NYC.  Also, the MTV VMA’s were on Sunday so that was the busiest day ever.  Throughout the week I worked with Amanda Bynes, Adrienne Bailon, Guiliana Rancic, new recording artist Jadyn Maria and of course Kim Kardashian, who has just added Beauty Editor to her impressive resume!  Below are just a few of the many that I’ll be sharing with you here.  Stay tuned!
