Looking back… One of my first TV commercial bookings…

Every now and then I look through my “vault” of folders that store endless amounts of images of my old work.  It’s great to see all the different shoots I’ve worked on over the years, especially the very early images from when I first started doing makeup.  When I see the images, it brings back so many memories – both good and not so good, LOL.

I came across this video clip today.  It was one my first TV commercial bookings for Head & Shoulders (Latin market).  I was SO excited when I got this job.  I also worked on the men’s version of the commercial.  Doesn’t it make you want to wash your hair? LOL  Xo Mario

To get the sexy nude lip that I gave Kim last night for her birthday, use Ravishing Lipstick by MAC.  Finish it off by adding MAC lip glass in Florabundance.  🙂 Xo Mario

TWIP of the day! For Matte looking skin…

12

For natural and matte looking skin, apply Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer by Givenchy before your foundation, or alone.  It’s a mattifying powder gel that makes skin appear smooth and velvet like.  Especially great for oily skin types.

GET THE FACE! Natasha Bedingfield

87237190good2227gyufj

Natasha Bedingfield is one of my favorite singers and also one of my faves to work on! I always have a good time when working with her.  She’s sweet, super talented and loves to play with different makeup looks.  This look that I gave her was for a TV appearance/performance in NYC.   The eyeshadow I used is actually silvery, not blue.  I rarely match eyeshadow to a dress.

So for you fair skinned/lighter hair ladies out there, Get the Face!  This makeup would work with jeans and a t-shirt as well. 😉

Eyes-  Use Forgery eyeshadow by MAC on the lids and along the lower lash line.  On the crease, use a bit of Cork, also by MAC.  Line the upper lid with Magic Khol Eyeliner Pencil in Black by Givenchy.  Curl lashes and use Longer Then Life Lengthening Mascara by NARS on top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks – On the apples of the cheeks, use Desire, by NARS.  Frame the face lightly with Laguna bronzer, also by NARS.

Lips – Line lips with MAC’s subculture and use Keri’s Kiss lipstick by GIELLA.

Xoxo, Mario

Get The Face – Kim K @ The Emmy’s

Hey Beautiful!  For this Emmy’s look, I gave the lovely Daneen over at Spoiled Pretty an exclusive on the makeup I used.  Click here to check it out and find out more about Aquagirl eyeshadow that I custom blended at GIELLA cosmetics.  Xox Mario

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!
