You guys may remember these images from Kim’s blog post that she titled “Dream Team Have me Ready in a New York Minute.”  Sometimes these things happen and there is no other option but to make it work as best you can in as little time as possible. (In this case, the very talented Michael Silva and I glammed her up in 15 minutes)  People Magazine recently asked me to share with them my inspiration for that look as well as the whole makeup break-down.   Click this link to get the look –,,20187290,00.html#20653772 or read below.


“My inspiration in one word was prestige,” explains Kardashian‘s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic of the look he gave her for a recent MTV appearance. “I was inspired by the attention-grabbing texture and color of the bright blue top Kim had on when I saw her.”
How to Do It
1: Use Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup in 050 all over the skin, followed by a touch of Nars pressed powder and Diorskin Sculpt Concealer in 003 under the eyes.
2: Dust Josie Maran Eye Shadow in Beach on the eyelids and brow bone. Then trace upper lids’ outer corners with M.A.C Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black.
3: Smudge lower lash line using a Q-tip with a bit of the copper shade from the NARS Surabaya Duo Eyeshadow followed by a couple of coats of Lancome Hypnose mascara.
4: Trace lips with Lip Pencil in Spice and apply Dazzleglass in Smile, both by M.A.C.

    Mario-We’ve all been patiently waiting for you to post Kim’s Teen Choice Awards makeup colors! Looks wonderful with her new hair color. What self tanner do you or she use first. It seems she always starts with a glow that enhances the look of the makeup. Do you start with a primer first as well? Love your work!

    Wow I love this look! I think it’s a nice everyday look!

    Did you put a color in the crease? (I’m always wondering for a natural look, what color to put in the crease)

    And what did you use for the cheeks?

    I also wanted to tell you that for an occasion I did one of the look that you did for Kim (the get the face blog post that you did on 2009-05-16) and I am really proud of myself…it was really nice! Thank you very much!

    I think it’s amazing that you have a blog! For me when I have a nice make up I feel more beautiful and I feel more confident! So I wanted to thank you because you make it easier with all your tips!
