I had the great pleasure of attending celebrity makeup artist Mario Devidanovic's workshop in the big apple. It was held on Sunday July 28, 2013 12-5pm.
I have been stalking Mario ever since I discovered him for years now. The way he blends makeup into the skin is perfection! He is known for giving Kim Kardashian the famous under eye concealer and highlight/contour that everyone talks about!
So I could not pass the opportunity to attend his workshop when NYC is only a 2 hour flight from Charlotte, NC. I have been dying to attend his workshop for the longest and I knew I just had to go!

The Golden ticket =)
We got lost walking around the building and saw Mario taking a smoke break on the side of the building before the workshop started. We arrived roughly 20 mins before the doors open and there was a long of about 30 people ahead of us. Once the door opened I made sure to grab a seat on the right side of the room in order to get a better view of Mario demonstrating his amazing skills on the model.

It was truly an awesome experience to attend Mario's workshop. As an artist, I was so inspired by his skills and he was just so humble. Mario answered any questions the audience had and was very open to helping us learn his unique techniques. Mario has inspired me to be a better artist and to continue to work hard for my dream to become a great artist. Thank you Mario for sharing your exquisite expertise with us!
Me & Mario! ^-^
We are foodies! We had to take advantage of NYC's yummy food since we are deprived here in Charlotte. Enjoy all the food pictures!
Delicious 1/2 spicy and 1/2 garlic extra crispy korean chicken wings.
Best chicken wings I have ever tasted in my life. They are tasty and so crispy you will not understand until you have tried Korean chicken wings! A MUST.
An NYC visit is not complete without stopping by "The Boil", they have the most favorable seasoning for the season! Super fresh 1/2lb crawfish and 1/2 shrimps.
Lunch at Miss Korea for some korean BBQ.
Ending an awesome 2 day trip to NYC with a giant green tea macaroon!
