I’m sure you have already seen Kim K on the cover of the current People Style Watch. If not, here it is. In the beauty breakdown below of her cover look, four of the products I used were mentioned but Im going to give you the complete look! See below to learn how to Get The Face! ;-) xo, Mario
On Skin - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Sand.
By TERRY Touche Veloutee Concealer applied under eyes.
Skin is set with loose powder. I used La Mer’s The Powder in Neutral.
Brows are filled in with Lancomes Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet then brushed out with the opposite side of the pencil.
To get the soft, golden shade on Kim’s eyes, I used Giella’s EYE M GLAM all over highlighter on the eye lids and tear ducts (or inner corners). I also highlighted her brow bone (right under the brows) using EYE M GLAM.
I swept Motives Eye Shadow in Cappuccino along the crease of eyes for subtle definition.
Under her eyes and/or along the lower lashes, I used Motives Eye Shadow in Toast. I blended the shadow with a clean brush to get a very soft and natural smokey look.
I lined and defined the top lids with Style Liner by Dior. I gradually went thicker with the line towards the outer corners.
I finished off the eyes by first curling the lashes then on both top and bottom lashes, I applied Bionic Mascara in Jet Black by Smashbox.
I bronzed Kim’s face along the hairline and on the hollows of cheeks using Cheekers Bronzer in Golden Tan by Covergirl.
To add a bit of glow to the skin I used Fusion Beauty’s Illumifill along the cheekbones.
On apples of cheeks I swept MAC blush in Fleur Power.
Her lips are lined with Josie Maran’s lip liner in Blush.
To add the soft pink color to her lips, I applied Colour Rich Lip Colour in Tickled Pink by L’oreal and finished the lips off with Lip Fusion Color Shine in Flirt.
Working on fashion editorials with a talented team and gorgeous models can be very rewarding. I still get the same excitement, after 10 years, when a story I worked on is published. I love to see the final images laid out as a story.
This is my latest story shot by Henrique Gendre in the current issue of Surface Magazine. The gorgeous face you see is model Ali Stephens and styling was done by Gregory Wein. The shoot was all about bright solids so I kept the makeup simple and clean with a strong brow and subtle contour. For the last couple of shots, I darkened her eyes with shadow only.
Editorial makeup is very different from celebrity/red carpet/TV, etc.. . To keep it modern and editorial, I didn’t use any mascara, liner or blush. Hope you like it! I will post a Get The Face! for the look below (dark eyes) very soon. Xo, Mario.
Im excited to share this short video with you all! It was shot during my first workshop that I hosted for Industry Art Shops. It’s a recap of the entire day that shows parts of my makeup demo as well as the artist portfolio event and photo shoot afterwards. Hope you like it and I look forward to hosting more workshops/seminars in the near future.
Earlier in the week I made up Kourtney for her appearance on Lopez Tonight. You can watch the clip above to see the funny interview. I loved Kourts entire look that night!
I went with more natural makeup and gave her cheeks a beautiful glow using Eye M Glam, my favorite all over highlighter of course. For a subtle pop of color, I painted her lips with a sheer peachy/orange shade. Leave a comment and let me know if you like the soft makeup on Kourtney! Xo, Mario.
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
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

I just came across StyleBust, a very cool site covering all things stylish. Check out this review of Eye M Glam, the all over highlighter that I created for Giella Cosmetics. I’m very flattered to say the least! When I created this highlighter, I never thought it would become a product in Giella’s line but I’m so glad that it is available to you all, as it is one of my staples that I rarely work without. Thanks StyleBust for making me smile and thanks to all of you who continue to write positive reviews of Eye M Glam. XO, Mario
My workshop is only a couple of days away and Im very excited! My goal for these workshops is to make sure that you all leave that day feeling fulfilled and inspired. In addition to learning from the makeup demonstrations, career advice and hands on opportunity to build your portfolio with professional model and photographer, I wanted to be sure that you all left with the proper tools and makeup. I think my goal will be accomplished! The amazing sponsors have generously sent me all of my favorite products that I’m giving to everyone who attends on Dec 4th and 5th. You will all be going home that day with the best makeup and brushes worth hundreds of dollars. Thank you to the sponsors for making this possible.
December 4th – SOLD OUT
December 5th – Theres a FEW spots left that they added. To register, click here. You can register for the portfolio event OR the general admission. (General admission means you will not be doing makeup on a model for pictures but will be there for everything else.) ;-) XOXOX Mario
