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.
As promised, here is the beauty breakdown for Kim’s look at the CEW Beauty Awards in NYC. I shared what I used on Kim step by step to create this refreshing look with TalkingMakeup.com. Take a look and learn my secrets and tips! If you try the look out yourself, please send me pics! Xo Mario
Earlier today in NYC, Kim attended the CEW Beauty Awards. CEW stands for Cosmetic Executive Women and Kim is definitely that and a whole lot more. She looked stunning in a one shoulder coral/peach dress and her hair was put up in a simple and elegant style by Michael Silva. I played up her eyes and lashes and kept the rest of the makeup clean and pretty. I hope you all like it. Stay tuned for more info on this look. Xo Mario
Happy Valentines Day! Here is a Valentines day treat for you all as I promised earlier today. I love doing this soft and pretty makeup on Kim and apparently you love it too! I’ve gotten a ton of requests for a “get the face” post for last nights Valentines look. Hope you try it out and if so, please send in pics to me. Here’s how you can “Get the Face!”
I started out with Josie Maran Argan Primer Mist on the face. Once that dries, go on to your foundation. On Kim –DiorSkin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF 25. Use just a bit of this foundation and blend well. Set your skin with a little of Smashbox HALO Hydrating Perfecting Powder.
I filled in Kim’s brows with MAC’s Eye Brows Pencil in Lingering. Sweep the pencil with light strokes in the direction the hair grows. Brush through brows for a more blended, natural look.
Using a brush, I applied Sweetheart eye shadow by Josie Maran on the eye lids. Keep the shadow right below the crease. Next, I gave her a thin line on the upper lid using ARTLINER – Precision Point EyeLiner by Lancome. Feel free to extend the line out without overdoing it. Lashes – use one coat of HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara by Lancome. I added some individual long lashes by Ardell to the outer corners of her eyes. Follow with another coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes as well.
To warm up and bronze the skin, I used Laguna Bronzing Powder by NARS. Using a small shadow brush, apply a dab of the bronzer to the crease of eyes and along the lower lash lines. To make her cheeks pop and to add a gorgeous glow, I swept Powder Blush by NYX Cosmetics in Peach on the apples of the cheeks. For that extra glow on the cheek bones apply N.Y.C. New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust in Opal Sparkle.
Finish off this Valentines look with a sexy and pretty shade of pink on your lips. Line all over with Sephora’s Nano Lip liner in Pinup Pink and follow with Pure Lipgloss in Petunia, also by Sephora. Have fun! Xo Mario
In this months Glamour magazine, Kim talks beauty and shares her favorite beauty tip: “My makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, taught me that after you put on concealer, set it with powder on top. It lasts longer.”
If you havn’t yet tried this and have issues with your concealer staying put or creasing, set it and forget it! LOL. Use a loose powder a shade or two lighter then your skin or a translucent powder to set. Apply with a sponge or puff. Xo Mario
I hope you all enjoy the collage I made. The images are from red carpet events that I did Kim’s makeup for. As you can see, she keeps me busy boy! 😉 It’s amazing to work with Kim for so many obvious reasons, but whats more amazing and most important is that she’s equally beautiful, inside and out. Have a Happy and Blessed Birthday Kim!
Check out the pics here from her party in Vegas. It was a blast! Stay tuned for a “Get The Face” post of her Vegas Birthday makeup . Xo Mario
This day was so exciting for me, as it was the first time I saw Kim as a blonde. I was pleasantly surprised! I had so much fun doing her makeup for the Teen Choice Awards. It was almost like I was doing another person! I also did Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie that day too. They all looked so beautiful 🙂 People magazine (out on stands right now) interviewed me as well to get the makeup scoop. Check out the image below and read more here to Get The Face!
Skin – I started out with one of my favorite moisturizers – Ultimate Youth Creme by Estee Lauder. For foundation, I went with Dior Nude Hydrating Glow Foundation followed by NARS pressed powder. I used Make Up For Ever Lift concealer under the eyes.
Eyes – Use Chopper eye shadow by Urban Decay all over the lid. Sweep Mac’s eye pencil in fascinating along the inner rim of the eye. Apply Cork eye shadow by MAC with a Qtip along the lower lash line. On the inner corner of the eyes, use B-dazzle by GIELLA. Lancôme Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes.
Eyebrows are slightly filled in with lingering brow pencil by MAC then blended and softened with a Qtip.
Cheeks- Lancôme Star Bronzer in Bronze Rich framing the entire face and on hollows of cheeks. Apply some to the neck and chest area as well. Brush Orgasm by NARS on the apples of the cheeks.
Lips – Fill in lips with Spice liner by MAC and follow with MAC’s Dazzleglass in Smile. 😉 Have fun!
You guys may remember these images from Kim’s blog post that she titled “Dream Team Have me Ready in a New York Minute.” http://kimkardashian.celebuzz.com/2009/07/dream-team-have-me-ready-in-a.php. 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.

GET KIM’S LUXE PALETTE (From People.com)
“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.
I did this smokey-eyed look on Kim recently here in NYC for the Three Olive’s Bubble Flavored Vodka party. Beleive it or not but this was actually the first time that I’ve done an all-black smokey eye on her, so for us, it was a different look. When I saw the cool outfit she was going to wear, I thought it was the right time to finally do the really dark eye’s I’d been wanting to try on her. Here’s how you can “get the face:”
Skin – I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer first. I let her skin absorb that for a couple of minutes before applying Mat Velvet + Matyfying Foundation by Make Up For Ever. I use this foundation from time to time. It gives a very velvety and pore-less look to the skin. For powder, I used very little of Subliminal Purity Mineral Based Loose Powder by Calvin Klein to set the foundation with a powder puff.
I used Dior’s DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer under the eyes after all of the eye makeup was complete. (When working with black eye shadow, it will almost always fall down a bit and make a mess so clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe, then apply concealer.)
Her eyebrow’s are filled in softly with MAC’s Cork eyeshadow – with more of the focus on the outter corners of the brow.
Eyes – Apply Shu Uemuras Painting Liner Eye Liner in MBlack all over the eye lids and on the lower lash line as well. This is a long-lasting and highly pigmented black cream liner. To set that eyeliner and blend it up and out towards the crease, I used Lorac’s Eye Shadow in Black. The inner rim of the eye is lined with MAC’s white eye pencil in Fascinating. Using all black on the eyes can sometimes make them appear smaller so the white pencil on the inner rim is a great trick for opening your eyes. Finish off with two or three coats of L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.
Cheeks – Apply Desire by NARS ( the perfect pink) on the apples of cheeks and blend well. The face is framed in Casino Bronzer by NARS.
Lips – I lined her lips with MAC’s lip pencil in Subculutre and used Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Pink Protege.
