Looking back…

Pretty in pink – Kim Kardashian cover shoot…

These beauty shots of Kim are so beautiful!  I just found the cover image the other day so I wanted to share it with all of you. The shot below is from the Fusion Beauty campaign that Kim and I worked on together.  Later that day, I changed her makeup for the shot above.  What do you think of the pink lips?  Can you guess which Lip Fusion gloss I used on Kim in the image above?  If so, leave a comment with your answer!  😉  xo, Mario

Harper’s Bazaar w/ Kim K

If you haven’t already seen Kim on the current cover of Bazaar, make sure you check it out!  Its a great interview that you’ll enjoy.  There are many images of Kim in the story, shot by Terry Richardson and one night I had the pleasure of working on set with the iconic photographer.  The image above is the one I worked on.  I gave Kim a pretty look using Dior products 😉  Hope you like it.   Xo Mario

Beauty blogger tells all: “my day w/ Mario Dedivanovic.”

Beauty blogger (Blushingmepink.com), makeup artist and sweetheart Kashonda (pictured next to me) just blogged about “her day with celeb makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.”   That day was this past Sunday as I hosted an all day workshop for Industy Art Shops. Her blog is appropriately titled because she had me blushing this morning!

Check out Blushing Me Pink and read on as Kashonda shares her workshop experience .  Thank you Kashonda for attending the workshop from out-of -state and for taking the time to share your experience.   Most importantly, thank you for learning and for allowing me the opportunity to teach.  Xo Mario

Answers to your questions…


Hey guys!  Tomorrow is the workshop in LA and many of you have been asking what the Artist Portfolio Event is and the difference between that and general admission.  General admission is for those who want to come and watch me do a full makeup demonstration on a model and hear me speak, answer questions, share my tricks of the trade, etc.

The Artist Portfolio Event is optional and means that after my demo, you are given your own professional model to do makeup on and have her photographed by a professional photographer.  You can then use the beauty shot for your portfolio.  General admission attendees are welcome to stay and hang out during the artist portfolio event as well.   This is a sweet message from a woman who wrote me after the Dec 4th class… she was nervous because she wasn’t a makeup artist:

“Mario, I really want to thank you for all the valuable info that you shared with our class on Dec. 4.  You are an amazing Artist with so much talent.  We chatted very briefly outside.  That was my first professional makeup workshop ever.  I knew I was going to be nervous and maybe not understand everything but your spirit is so calm and welcoming I felt so at home with your instruction.   You are the best!”

I hope this helped to answer your questions.  You have one more day to register, so click here!  Xo Mario

Beach Bunny Safari Glam Campaign

This shoot for Beach Bunny swimwear, photographed by the amazing Yu Tsai was so much fun to work on!   Check out the video below and watch Cameron Russell take you on a glam safari.  The gorgeous hair was done by Syd Curry.  I gave Cameron sexy, smokey eyes using bronze and nude shades.  Stay tuned for the images of the campaign that I’ll post soon.  Enjoy.  Xo, Mario.

K. Michelle on BET’s 106 and Park “I Just Can’t Do This”

Some of you may remember the other day when my flight from LA to NYC was delayed.  I was praying for a miracle to happen so that I would make it in time to do K. Michelle’s makeup for her live performance on 106th and Park.  I do believe in miracles because I got there with a few minutes until show time and I started painting for my life!  Thanks Jai for your help!  Anyhow, enjoy this video clip of her performing and also of her interview right after.   Xo Mario
