Spotted (On The Set Of ABC’s Scandal)!


Remember when we Instagrammed (@mariobadescuskincare!) this?

A few weeks later we spotted this: 


WHO: Denise Hooper, the fab Makeup Department Head for ABC’s Scandal cast. (Season 2 premieres tonight at 10 PM – get your popcorn ready ladies and gents!)

WHERE: Atop her super organized (and incredibly zen!) makeup station on the set of Scandal season two, which she tweeted oh-so-artfully. A fellow makeup artist reintroduced her to our line, and she promptly fell in love all over again.


And not pictured (but just as well-loved!):

WHY: Because beautiful makeup needs beautiful skin. And beautiful skin needs good skincare.

On the Facial Spray:

“We start our mornings with a little spritz of aloe & rose. Its nice to start the makeup with a little pick me up especially if its 5am on a monday!! I use the spritz at my station all day to feel refreshed & clean.”

On the Healing Cream:

“This was a big hit!!. One of our actresses went home with a jar of the healing cream and said that it is one of the most miraculous products she has ever used. Its great for break outs, red patches, sunburns and even cat scratches.”

On the Protein Night Cream:

“Just a divine silky night cream. The actors love to slather this on after a long day on set.”

On the Olive Eye Cream:

 “I sent one of the actresses home with this beautiful eye cream and she came back the next day and said ” I am in love with my eye cream, I want to slather it all over my body too” (we got her the body lotion version).”

On the Pre-Shave Conditioner & Electric Shaving Lotion:

“It’s always nice when we can share the products with the guys. We have a big cast & lots of male regulars. We have a whole shaving station in the makeup & hair trailer. We keep it stocked with pre-shave conditioner and electric shaving lotion. The pre-shave helps us with ingrown hairs and the redness from shaving everyday. The guys love using the products because most men are sensitive (they just don’t admit it) and they don’t always realize there are products made just for them.”

Thank you Denise! We can’t wait for Season two tonight!
