For a precise and very defined crease, Mario suggests using Sephora’s Nano Eyeliner to draw a line right on or under the crease. With a small brush, blend the line going up and/or out. Keep it in place with a touch of translucent powder.

Hi Mario,

I have no cheekbones…like, at all. How do I create the illusion of them with makeup? If this helps, I have a long face, moderate/small facial features and red undertones w/ a medium-brown complexion. Thanks!

cheekbones Makeup Mondays With Mario: Chiseled CheekbonesHi Melonie,

Thanks for visiting!

To create the illusion of cheekbones, you will need a few products. This is one of my favorite “steps” in a makeup application because it looks great on almost every face. Start out using a matte bronzer a few shades darker than your skin. Apply the bronzer with a brush onto the hollows of your cheeks blending towards the center of the ear. Sweep a highlighter (a golden sheer, shimmery shade) right above the bronzer or on top of the cheekbone. The area with the highlight will pop out and the hollows will appear deeper, creating the illusion of cheekbones. To prevent a ruddy or messy look on the skin, be sure to powder first.

xo,
Mario

So without further ado…do your thang, Mario!

Hi Mario,

I have a question and would like some advice on my make-up. OK… I naturally have dark circles around my eyes and I love the smokey eye look. However whenever I’ve tried it, it makes my circles appear darker. Is there something I can do about it so that I can achieve the look that I’m wanting or is that something I can’t accomplish because of my imperfections? -LaJuan

sephora+smoky+eye Makeup Mondays With Mario: Dark Circles & Smoky EyesDear LaJuan,

It seems to me that the problem you’re having has to do with covering up the dark circles around your eyes, or it could the technique you’re using when you do the eye makeup. If done correctly, a smokey eye should not make your “circles” appear darker. Here’s what you should do. Start out by applying an eye shadow base or primer to the lid. You can also use your concealer or foundation for this (a shade or two lighter then your skin would be best). Follow with some loose powder to set the base. Now you can go ahead and give yourself a smokey eye which ever way that you prefer. After the lids are done, you now want to clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe to get rid of all the eyeshadow that most likely fell. That could be why it looks more dark to you. Once the under eye area is clean, apply your concealer, blend with a sponge and finish by setting it with a translucent loose powder. This will also prevent the liner along the lower lash line from smudging. icon wink Makeup Mondays With Mario: Dark Circles & Smoky Eyes
