Mario flew to India days before the biggest beauty exhibition commenced- Nykaaland, and got straight to work. Set in the Royal Western India Turf Club in Mumbai, Mario arrived on Friday morning and immediately visited the venue to ensure the set-up was ready to perfection.

After a few hours of sleep, the team began the preparations before the event opened, and Mario was ready to begin his Masterclass at 10:30 am. Everyone in India was excited to see Makeup by Mario in action, and Mario’s Masterclass went on until 1:30 p.m. as it was a 3-hour in-depth course on applying makeup.

Highlights of the Makeup By Mario class

With a full house, Mario was shocked to see the incredible response from all of his Indian fans. The class was 90% professional makeup artists, with approximately 450 students in attendance.

One of the biggest highlights of the event was the attendees who lined up outside the box office as early as 8:30 a.m. to see Mario and be part of his session. There were also a few people who had flown in from cities like Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and more just to attend Nykaaland for the Makeup by Mario Masterclass. Mario was delighted to fulfil the wishes of his die-hard fans and provide this unique session to them all the way from America, in person.

Masterclass Details

During the masterclass itself, Mario showed his audience how to execute his signature red-carpet glam look. Mario put emphasis on how to perfect the base of the makeup first and create a strong, classic, signature eye and lip look to finish. With no one wanting to take a break from the 3 hour class, it was very interactive with the audience asking Mario many questions making sure to get the best out of their learnings.

Mario did of course use his own Makeup by Mario products to carry out the look, and also gave the students a sneak peak of many unreleased products which were all loved.

Mario’s Plumping Blush Veil, Surreal skin concealer, and Master Secret Glow received a great response from the audience. Once the Masterclass was completed, the students immediately asked to purchase the products, asking if they were available to purchase at the event.

Meet and greet with Mario

Post Masterclass, there was also a meet and greet set up for 120 people where the VIP and Diamond pass holders from the Nykaaland event were able to personally meet Mario. The meet and greet was a special moment as Mario came across so many fans who attended his masterclass in New York and other cities back in 2017, and who were now ecstatic to have him in India, their homeland.

Mario also met leading beauty influencers at the Nykaaland event, such as Aashna Shroff, Radhika Seth, and more. The world-renowned makeup artist was overwhelmed and surprised by his fan base in India, embracing the moment and the 2 days he was there.

From the incredible response Mario received, we can be sure to see more of him in India so watch this space.
