Kourtney Kardashian glows on Lopez Tonight

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 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

Get the Face! Khloe Kardashian’s wedding makeup: The complete face!

041_weddin_get_000041_weddin_ope_003

As you all know, OK! Magazine had the exclusive for the look I gave Khloe on her wedding.  Many of you have been asking me for more details and product info so I’m going to share the “complete face” with you all in more detail.   Here it is – Get the Face!

MDOKMagKhloeKardashOct09cropped

On Khloe’s skin – To prep skin, I used Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer by Givenchy.  I wanted her overall skin to be more matte, even though I was going for the “glowy Khloe.”  Most of the time, I will later add the glow to the areas I want.  For foundation, I used the new Sheer Matte Foundation by NARS all over skin.  For undereyes, I used a bit of Lift Concealer by Make Up For Ever.  I set everything with a touch of  Translucent Loose Powder by Shiseido.

Khloe’s Brows are filled in with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil.  It comes in a universal shade.  To darken the brow, just apply more.

Khloe’s eye’s –  On the inner rim of the eyes (tear ducts) and on the brow bone, I used b-dazzle eyeshadow by GIELLA.  All over the lid, apply the golden shade from NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Mediterranee.  On the outter corners of the eyes, crease and along lower lash line, use Antiqued eyeshadow by MAC.  To line eyes on top, inner rim and along the outter and lower lash lines, use MAC’s eye pencil in Smolder.  Finish the eyes with Khloe’s favorite mascara on top and bottom lashes – Lancome Hynose Mascara!

Cheeks – To bronze and warm up Khloe’s skin, I used Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine in Amber Matte. On the hollows of the cheeks, I applied Suntan Matte Bronzelights by Smashbox.  For blush, I brushed Orgasm by NARS on the apples of her cheeks.  To add glow to the cheekbones and bridge of nose, use Albatross blush, also by NARS.

Lips – I lined Khloe’s lips with ColorStay Lipliner in Natural, by Revlon.  To finish, use Revlon’s Creme Gloss in Pink Cami.

I hope you try to “get the face!”   If you do, remember to send me pics of the look so I can post them here! xo Mario
