Watch me share tips/tricks on BeautyBFF

Jenn Falik, beauty/fashion expert and host of Beauty BFF on msn recently had me on her show to discuss some supermodel beauty tricks. Take a look and let me know what you think! ūüėČ 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‚Ķ 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

The Eye M Glam contest rules!

You still have a few days left to email pics of your most glam makeup!  Please take a second to read the contest rules below.

I will be giving away hundreds of dollars worth of my favorite products and tools that I personally pick for the winner, in addition to Eye M Glam highlighter.

Please take the time to actually do a very glam makeup on yourself, take pics of it and send them over. Many of you have been sending old pics of different makeup or blurry images taken in clubs or outside. ¬†I won’t be able to consider these entries. ¬†I’ve seen quite a few retouched images also. ¬†Please do not retouch! ¬†Get inspired and paint your face – I want to see glam makeup – lips,lashes and all. ¬†Do not be afraid to paint. ¬†Think Lady Gaga, Marilyn Monroe, Iman, Jennifer Lopez, RuPaul, Dita Von Teese, Kim K, etc. ¬†If you’ve already sent me images but wan’t to do it again, please do!

1-3 images of the same look. ¬†If you send just one, make sure it’s close up so I can see the makeup.

I do not want to see professional, retouched photos or photos of your favorite look from 7 years ago that you took at a bar. LOL!  The makeup should be done for this contest.

Subject line should say “Eye M Glam giveaway”
