For Elton John’s Oscars party, I kept Kim and Kourtney’s makeup simple and feminine – A bronzy glow to their skin paired with soft pink lips and cheeks. I focused on their already gorgeous eyes by adding black liner and mascara along the upper lid and lashes. Xo – Mario
Now thats what I call a commercial! I was so excited when I got called to do the makeup for Go Daddy.com’s new Superbowl commercial featuring Danica Patrick and The NEW Pussycat Dolls. It was a two day shoot directed by Steve Antin (director of “Burlesque” w/ Cher and Christina Aguilera) and we had the best time ever. Danica and The Dolls were awesome and such a pleasure to work with! What do you think of GoDaddy’s new Superbowl commercial? Xo Mario

The Makeup Show LA 2012
I was going through images in my laptop and saw this shot of superstar DJ/model Sky Nellor. This was a advertising shoot I worked on for the Ricardo Rojas Salon in NYC, featured in Vogue. Ricardo and I have worked with Sky (his muse) many times over the years and together, they’re so much fun to be around. Check out that bed head – I love it! A natural look for everyday, LOL. Xo Mario
A couple of weeks ago I did Khloe’s makeup and we used these temporary tattoos called Violent Lips. They come in various colors and fun prints including the Silver Glitteratti pair that I applied on Khloe.
How beautiful does she look?? Sexy in Silver, lol. I love this pic! Violent Lips come in so many awesome colors and patterns. Kendall and Kylie gave me a couple of cool styles that I plan on using soon on a fashion/ beauty editorial. Xo Mario
I recently worked with the sweet and beautiful Christian Serratos for the LA premier of “Breaking Dawn.” For those of you that have not seen any of the Twilight movies, Christian plays the role of Angela, who is best friends with Bella (Kristen Stewart). I think Christian was best dressed at the premier, without a doubt! She wore a stunning fuchsia Alexander McQueen gown and she rocked it!
For makeup, I gave her subtle, smokey cat eyes and radiant, bronzed skin. On Christians lips, I used a very soft matte pink shade. What do you think of the look? Stay tuned for a “Get The Face!” Xo Mario
Has anyone seen K. Michelle’s music video for “How Many Times?” It’s a really great song and especially if you’re into real R&B. I did her makeup on the “How Many Times” video (see below). Towards the end of the shoot, I had to mimic broken glass on her shoulder somehow so I used hundreds of swarovski cyrstals in different shapes and sizes. I was so pressed for time but thankfully the manicurist and my assistant Sally helped me to glue all the pieces! You can take a look here. Xo Mario
