I just went on youtube and noticed all of the makeup tutorials on the look I created for Kim’s new True Reflection fragrance ad campaign. Wow, you guys are so quick! LOL. Great job to all of you that made the videos. It was a great experience working on that shoot – I loved creating the old Hollywood-inspired look on Kim. If you haven’t had a chance to see the images or the commercial, take a look at it here. Also, Kim’s fourth fragrance, True Reflection is definitely my favorite scent of hers. Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think. Xo Mario

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.
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.

As promised, here is the complete “Get The Face” breakdown of products that I used on Kim for the Leather & Laces event in Miami. I hope you try out the look and send me images. I would love to feature photos of you girls that do your makeup inspired by my “get the face” posts.
On skin- Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream all over skin first. NARS sheer glow foundation in Barcelona applied with a sponge. Under eyes, use Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer in Meduim Vanilla. Set the face with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder in #2 using very little.
Brows are filled in with Brow Sculpting Pencil by Sephora, in Medium. Brush them through with the opposite end of the pencil once filled in.
Eyes – Sweep Josie Maran EyeShadow in Vintage all over the lid. On the crease and also smoked along the lower lashine, use Cacao EyeShadow, also by Josie Maran. Line the upper lash line with Sephoras Doe Eyed Felt eyeliner in Black. L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on top and bottom lashes. For some added drama, use the long individual false lashes by Ardell on the outter upper corners.
Warm up and frame the face with Smashbox bronzer in Suntanne Matte. Also brush some on the hollows of the cheeks. Sweep NYC New York Color Color Wheel in Peach Glow on the apples of the cheeks and a bit across the forehead and chin.
To get that gorgeous, glowing skin, use EYE M GLAM highlighter. Brush it on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and right on the cupids bow of upper lip. I also used it on her brow bones and inner corner of her eyes.
Line lips with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Heavy (shimmery nude shade). Use Captivating Coral lipstick by Motives and follow with Covergirl Wetslicks gloss in Fig.
