As his celebrity clientele grew, suddenly everyone wanted to do makeup like Mario — whether you were a makeup artist or a beauty obsessive. Today he's one of the makeup industry's biggest (and nicest!) legends so when he announced the launch of his namesake beauty brand — Makeup by Mario — it was met with incredible hype.
Almost a year since beauty lovers in the US got their hands on the products, Makeup by Mario is finally available in the UK at Cult Beauty. So what can you expect? There are three Instagram-worthy eyeshadow palettes in various finishes (from matte to metallic) with shades to suit all skin tones, like burnt copper, petal pink and a handful of natural nudes inspired by human skin. And it wouldn't be a collection without a matte liquid liner and a selection of pearlescent highlighters.
I've been a Mario super-fan since day one so I couldn't wait to get my hands on everything. But what's worth your money? I tried over £200 worth of products and here's my honest verdict.

American Samoa, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, reported its first case of coronavirus on Friday. The territory’s acting governor, Lt. Gov. Talauega Eleasalo Ale, and health officials said the islands’ first case of COVID-19 was in a resident who returned to America Samoa from a trip to the U.S. mainland and Hawaii earlier this week. There were a few positive coronavirus cases associated with cargo ships that had docked in American Samoa last year.

For days after the August 29 strike, Pentagon officials asserted that it had been conducted correctly, despite numerous civilians being killed, including children. News organisations later raised doubts about that version of events, reporting that the driver of the targeted vehicle was a long-time employee at an American humanitarian organisation and citing an absence of evidence to support the Pentagon’s assertion the vehicle contained explosives.
