Fashion story in VEGAS Mag: “Wild Things”



The one thing in this shoot that’s not ‘wild’ is the makeup –  and it doesn’t always have to be!  I was excited when I first saw the models, Julia and Michelle (IMG) on set that day.  Their look was perfect for a very natural, matte makeup!

Collaborating on fashion editorials and helping create a look for a story is one of the best and most creative things about being a makeup artist.  This story was photographed by Bell Soto in NYC and  David Widjaja is responsible for the fashion styling.  I’ve worked with David a few times and always love his work.   The hair was done by Davide of the Davide Torchio Salon.  Check out VEGAS magazine here.   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.
