FOTD inspired by Makeup by Mario

It's been a while since my last FOTD so I decided to do one for today. One of my favorite make up artist is Mario Dedivanovic. He does make up for tons of stars like Kim Kardashian, Adriene Bailon and a whole lot more. I really love how he puts on make up for his clients. What I noticed about all his looks is that he creates a perfect base making the face look uber flawless. He doesn't use so much products also, but he stil manages to accentuate the best features of a person's face.

My inspiration for this look was Kim Kardashian's Birthday Look. I didn't have the exact products Mario used for her face but I tried nonetheless using the products I do have. Here's my interpretation:

Pics taken using SLR with Flash

Pics taken using Photobooth (no flash)

I just realized I look so different with the flash and with the photos taken from the Photobooth. Most probably because with the Photobooth, you can't really distinguish my hair color and my contacts aren't seen hehe. Oh well, here's what I used to achieve the look:

Cinema Secrets Foundation in 62
MAX Factor Translucent Powder to set
Nichido Blush in Peach Glow
Smashbox Fusion soft lights in Baked Starburst
MAC Iridescent powder in Belightful

Cinema Secrets Concealer palette in Kit #2
Light Gold from 120 Color Palette for lids and brow bone
Copper Bronze from 120 Color Palette for Crease
Avon eye liner
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara
Brown eye shadow from 28 Neutral Palette

01 Nude Lip Liner from Ever Bilena
NYX Circe lipstick
MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass

All brushes used are from the Dashe 30pc Set! Yayyy finally tried them! :)

I really love reading Mario's blog checking out his latest works. I wish to be his client one day! He's awesome! hehe
