While it may have been a cold and blustery day in Indian Wells the world number one was in red-hot form, managing six breaks of serve to rout her Russian opponent.
She sealed a comprehensive victory after one hour and 26 minutes on court, in the process extending her unbeaten start in the season to 23 matches.
She still has some way to go to equal Martina Hingis' 37-game unbeaten start to 1997, but her current sequence is the best since then.
"I was just trying to do my best because I know Maria is a fighter," Azarenka said in a courtside interview. "I always tried to stay focused and apply as much pressure as I can."
As for her perfect record this year, she added: "I never dreamed about that
"It's amazing and I'm just so glad that I have been able to be consistent and disciplined and professional every day."
Sharapova suffered again at the hands of the Belarusian having also lost when the two met in the final of the Australian Open earlier this year.
She was broken right at the start of the contest and then again in the seventh game of the opening set, Azarenka going 5-2 ahead thanks to a rasping forehand winner.
Sharapova continued to have issues with her serve at the start of the second set before finally showing some fight at 0-3, breaking the top seed for the first time by clawing her way back from 15-40 down.
However, Azarenka responded by breaking straight back to move three clear again and although her rival held for the first time in the set in the seventh game, it was only ever a case of delaying the inevitable.
After losing another major final to Azarenka, Sharapova was honest in her assessment of both of their performances.
"She's extremely solid and she makes you work for every point," she said.
"Ultimately I think maybe she forces you to want to do a little bit more than either you should or would want to.
"She's really fit, as well, playing with a lot of confidence, and you can definitely sense that when she's moving around the court and hitting the ball.
"I still feel like I just made too many unforced errors at the wrong time and wasn't solid enough."
