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
K.Michelle is another AMAZING and crazy talented singer that I recently worked with! Check out her new music video “Fallin” – another Armen directed piece! K.Michelle was so much fun to work with and she had me cracking up all day -she’s hysterical! I don’t need to talk about the voice as you will witness that once you watch and listen to her video below. This song is being played all over and is a hit for sure.
For the makeup in “Fallin,” I gave K.Michelle a soft, smokey eye using some metallics around the lash lines. I finished her look off with peach on the cheeks and golden, nude lips. I hope you like the makeup and the video. 😉 Xo Mario
The video below is a behind the scenes from the Fallin video shoot where you can take a look at me “at work.” LOL enjoy!
Hey guys, have you seen Lil Kim’s new music video for her song “Download?” I had such a blast working on her makeup for this video and she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever worked with. Music videos are hard work and very long hours but I love them! For “Download,” I gave Lil Kim two different looks. Some of her girl freinds stopped by for a scene so I did the lovely Lisa Raye’s makeup too. The beautiful girl in the pic with me is Sally, my assistant in LA. I love her to death! Here’s the video 😉 Lil Kim\’s \”DOWNLOAD\”
