What Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist Uses

I watch this video like a frat boy watches porn (obsessively, minus the yucky sexual stuff). I think I might even have it memorized. I can close my eyes and see it all unfolding: The generous under eye concealer application, his artful powder contour, and the better-than-nude lip color. It’s a virtual symphony hitting all the right notes with women who are dying to know the makeup tricks that Mario Dedivanovic uses all the time on his #1 client, Kim Kardashian.

Let’s watch it again..


Seeing the cosmetic line Motives by Loren Ridinger logo everywhere, I couldn’t resist reaching out to ask them what Mario used of theirs to create this look. Within minutes, Loren herself actually responded (at 3am her time!) to give me a heads up that a complete list would follow the next day. And it did.

Here’s what Mario used in the video above from Motives by Loren Ridinger.

· No More Shine Makeup Setting Spray

· Eye Base

· Liquid Eyeliner

· Khol Eyeliner in Angel and Onyx

· Pressed Eye Shadow in Toast

Other things in the video that I spy are Lancôme Mascara (not positive which one, but he used Hypnôse Doll Lashes on Kim for her wedding), he’s holding a Laura Mercier puff the whole time (as to not touch her face directly – a Mercier-trained artist thing to do), EYE M GLAM is swept down the bridge of her nose, cheekbones, and patted on her cupid’s bow (his signature shimmer which I have and love). It’s like a makeup Where’s Waldo, every time I recognize something new.

To see the full listing of what Mario used on Kimmy K for her wedding, click HERE. On this 2 year old tutorial, he used a ton of M.A.C for Kim’s makeup but on the wedding list there’s a lot of L’Oreal and Lancôme in the mix. I’m not saying those aren’t totally acceptable to use, but I might be smelling a whiff of corporate sponsorship so take the list with a grain of salt.

    Wow – So much makeup was used but her face looked flawless! What did he put under her eyes to cover up lines, dark circles, etc?
