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

Sky’s the Limit…

AC Magazine Sky Nellor small

She’s a former mega model turned renowned DJ and  she’s one of my favorite faces to paint!  Sky Nellor is gorgeous.  I met Sky a few years ago through my freind, hairstylist Ricardo Rojas who recommended I do her makeup for a New York Times feature.  After using an image of her today for my TWIP of the day, I figured I’d show you some more images of our work together.

This Vegas Magazine shoot was my first cover with Sky and my first time working with photographer Sante D’Orazio.  Ricardo Rojas styled the hair on all images above.  Stylist was Rebecca Weinberg.  Hope you like it!  Xo Mario

Want gorgeous, glowing cheekbones?   Blend a bit of L’Oreal’s HiP Illuminating Highlighter in Twinkling onto your cheekbones.  Use the darker shade to acheive a bronzy glow, or mix the two.
