It’s finally out! This look that I gave Kim at the Leather & Laces event in Miami during Superbowl weekend has been the most requested “Get the Face.” People Style Watch had the exclusive on it and now you do too! I loved the entire look on Kim. Monica Rose styled her beautifully in a all nude look and I was very inspired by the color and textures. Look above to find out which products I used on Kim or pick up a copy of the current issue of People Style Watch, page 94. The mag also gives you the “look for less.” Stay tuned for the complete list of products I used – I will share the rest of the look very soon. Xo Mario

I did this smokey-eyed look on Kim recently here in NYC for the Three Olive’s Bubble Flavored Vodka party. Beleive it or not but this was actually the first time that I’ve done an all-black smokey eye on her, so for us, it was a different look. When I saw the cool outfit she was going to wear, I thought it was the right time to finally do the really dark eye’s I’d been wanting to try on her. Here’s how you can “get the face:”
Skin – I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer first. I let her skin absorb that for a couple of minutes before applying Mat Velvet + Matyfying Foundation by Make Up For Ever. I use this foundation from time to time. It gives a very velvety and pore-less look to the skin. For powder, I used very little of Subliminal Purity Mineral Based Loose Powder by Calvin Klein to set the foundation with a powder puff.
I used Dior’s DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer under the eyes after all of the eye makeup was complete. (When working with black eye shadow, it will almost always fall down a bit and make a mess so clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe, then apply concealer.)
Her eyebrow’s are filled in softly with MAC’s Cork eyeshadow – with more of the focus on the outter corners of the brow.
Eyes – Apply Shu Uemuras Painting Liner Eye Liner in MBlack all over the eye lids and on the lower lash line as well. This is a long-lasting and highly pigmented black cream liner. To set that eyeliner and blend it up and out towards the crease, I used Lorac’s Eye Shadow in Black. The inner rim of the eye is lined with MAC’s white eye pencil in Fascinating. Using all black on the eyes can sometimes make them appear smaller so the white pencil on the inner rim is a great trick for opening your eyes. Finish off with two or three coats of L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.
Cheeks – Apply Desire by NARS ( the perfect pink) on the apples of cheeks and blend well. The face is framed in Casino Bronzer by NARS.
Lips – I lined her lips with MAC’s lip pencil in Subculutre and used Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Pink Protege.
