Get The Face! Kim Kardashian – Valentines day Queen of Hearts


Happy Valentines Day!  Here is a Valentines day treat for you all as I promised earlier today.  I love doing this soft and pretty makeup on Kim and apparently you love it too!  I’ve gotten a ton of requests for a “get the face” post for last nights Valentines look.  Hope you try it out and if so, please send in pics to me.  Here’s how you can “Get the Face!”

I started out with Josie Maran Argan Primer Mist on the face.  Once that dries, go on to your foundation. On Kim –DiorSkin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF 25. Use just a bit of this foundation and blend well.  Set your skin with a little of Smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

I filled in Kim’s brows with MAC’s Eye Brows Pencil in Lingering.  Sweep the pencil with light strokes in the direction the hair grows.  Brush through brows for a more blended, natural look.

Using a brush, I applied Sweetheart eye shadow by Josie Maran on the eye lids. Keep the shadow right below the crease.  Next, I gave her a thin line on the upper lid using ARTLINER – Precision Point EyeLiner by Lancome.  Feel free to extend the line out without overdoing it.  Lashes – use one coat of HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara by Lancome.  I added some individual long lashes by Ardell to the outer corners of her eyes.  Follow with another coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes as well.

To warm up and bronze the skin, I used Laguna Bronzing Powder by NARS.  Using a small shadow brush, apply a dab of the bronzer to the crease of eyes and along the lower lash lines.  To make her cheeks pop and to add a gorgeous glow, I swept Powder Blush by NYX Cosmetics in Peach on the apples of the cheeks. For that extra glow on the cheek bones apply N.Y.C. New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust in Opal Sparkle.

Finish off this Valentines look with a sexy and pretty shade of pink on your lips.  Line all over with Sephora’s Nano Lip liner in Pinup Pink and follow with Pure Lipgloss in Petunia, also by Sephora.  Have fun!  Xo Mario


Kims shares her favorite beauty tip in Glamour Magazine

Glamour Kim K.page 3 Mario

In this months Glamour magazine, Kim talks beauty and shares her favorite beauty tip:  “My makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, taught me that after you put on concealer, set it with powder on top.  It lasts longer.”

If you havn’t yet tried this and have issues with your concealer staying put or creasing, set it and forget it! LOL.   Use a loose powder a shade or two lighter then your skin or a translucent powder to set.  Apply with a sponge or puff.  Xo Mario

GET THE FACE! Kim K’s b-day look…Vegas

kims Bday2

So many of you have been asking me for a “Get the Face” post on this look that I gave Kim… so here it is!  LOL.  I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday.  I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way.  It’s more exciting when they can’t see what i’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.  😉  PS… The other birthday look from LA is coming very soon too!


Skin – I used Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS all over the skin.  Under the eyes and to highlight I used YSL’s Touch Eclat.  To set everything use a touch of Translucent Loose Powder by Shiseido.


Eyebrows are softly filled in with MAC’s eyebrow pencil in Lingering.

Eyes – Urban Decay eyeshadow in Eldorado on eye lids and browbone.  Smog eyeshadow also by Urban Decay on the crease of the eye and outter corners of the lids.  Smolder Eye Kohl by MAC rimming the entire eye and on the inner rims.  Use more liner towards the outter corners.  Using a clean brush, blend along the lashlines, moving up and out.  Apply more liner for intensity if needed.  Finish the eyes with two coats of Lancome’s Hynose Drama Mascara on top and bottom lashes.


Cheeks – On the apples of the cheeks, use Passion blush by Josie Maran.  Skin is bronzed with Josie Maran Bronzing Powder.  Brush it along the hairline, jawline and hollows of cheeks.  To highlight the cheek bones, use Trace Gold blush by MAC.


Lips are lined with MAC’s Cremestick Liner in Summerfruit followed by Lipgelee in Saplicious, also by MAC.

Have fun and take pics!  Xo Mario


Happy Birthday to my muse, Kim Kardashian!

I hope you all enjoy the collage I made.  The images are from red carpet events that I did Kim’s makeup for.  As you can see, she keeps me busy boy!  😉  It’s amazing to work with Kim for so many obvious reasons, but whats more amazing and most important is that she’s equally beautiful, inside and out.  Have a Happy and Blessed Birthday Kim!

Check out the pics here from her party in Vegas.  It was a blast!  Stay tuned for a “Get The Face” post of her Vegas Birthday makeup .  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!


GET THE FACE! Kim K @ Teen Choice Awards

 

This day was so exciting for me, as it was the first time I saw Kim as a blonde.  I was pleasantly surprised!  I had so much fun doing her makeup for the Teen Choice Awards.  It was almost like I was doing another person!  I also did Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie that day too.  They all looked so beautiful 🙂  People magazine (out on stands right now) interviewed me as well to get the makeup scoop.  Check out the image below and read more here to Get The Face!

 

Skin – I started out with one of my favorite moisturizers – Ultimate Youth Creme by Estee Lauder.  For foundation, I went with Dior Nude Hydrating Glow Foundation followed by NARS pressed powder.  I used Make Up For Ever Lift concealer under the eyes.

Eyes – Use Chopper eye shadow by Urban Decay all over the lid. Sweep Mac’s eye pencil in fascinating along the inner rim of the eye.   Apply Cork eye shadow by MAC with a Qtip along the lower lash line.  On the inner corner of the eyes, use B-dazzle by GIELLA.   Lancôme Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Eyebrows are slightly filled in with lingering brow pencil by MAC then blended and softened with a Qtip.

Cheeks- Lancôme Star Bronzer in Bronze Rich framing the entire face and on hollows of cheeks.  Apply some to the neck and chest area as well.  Brush Orgasm by NARS on the apples of the cheeks.

Lips – Fill in lips with Spice liner by MAC and follow with MAC’s Dazzleglass in Smile.  😉  Have fun!

 

 

GET THE FACE! Kim’s LUXE PALETTE

 

 

You guys may remember these images from Kim’s blog post that she titled “Dream Team Have me Ready in a New York Minute.” http://kimkardashian.celebuzz.com/2009/07/dream-team-have-me-ready-in-a.php.  Sometimes these things happen and there is no other option but to make it work as best you can in as little time as possible. (In this case, the very talented Michael Silva and I glammed her up in 15 minutes)  People Magazine recently asked me to share with them my inspiration for that look as well as the whole makeup break-down.   Click this link to get the look –http://www.peoplestylewatch.com/people/stylewatch/gallery/0,,20187290,00.html#20653772 or read below.

GET KIM’S LUXE PALETTE (From People.com)

“My inspiration in one word was prestige,” explains Kardashian‘s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic of the look he gave her for a recent MTV appearance. “I was inspired by the attention-grabbing texture and color of the bright blue top Kim had on when I saw her.”
How to Do It
1: Use Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup in 050 all over the skin, followed by a touch of Nars pressed powder and Diorskin Sculpt Concealer in 003 under the eyes.
2: Dust Josie Maran Eye Shadow in Beach on the eyelids and brow bone. Then trace upper lids’ outer corners with M.A.C Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black.
3: Smudge lower lash line using a Q-tip with a bit of the copper shade from the NARS Surabaya Duo Eyeshadow followed by a couple of coats of Lancome Hypnose mascara.
4: Trace lips with Lip Pencil in Spice and apply Dazzleglass in Smile, both by M.A.C.
