Kim Kardashian’s Make Up Artist Mario Dedivanovic
Mario Dedivanovic created the world “contour” as a noun to explain the shape or define of something. He was an unknown make-up artist—who worked with the newly well-known Kim Kardashian in 2008—and the duo basically modified the make-up panorama forever. Dedivanovic, who was born and raised in the Bronx, now counts Chrissy Teigenand Chanel Iman amongst his clients, the list of which is simply rising longer. For this month’s Golden Globes, he did Naomie Harris’s makeup for Chanel. We would argue that he singlehandedly kicked off the contouring craze, displaying us that even if you weren’t born with superb bone structure, you could possibly pretend it like a professional—so long as you have got the correct makeup and tools readily available. Though we all know all there’s to learn about sculpting your cheekbones, we don’t know half as much about Dedivanovic himself.
When he first met Kim Kardashian, he did not know who she was: “I knew her name and I knew that she had a reality show, but that was it,” says Dedivanovic.
“She walked in and I remember thinking, oh my god, she’s the most beautiful girl ever.”
After the shoot—which was for a magazine called Social Life—Kardashian asked him to take her shopping so she may buy every thing he’d used to do her make-up. Off they went to Henri Bendel, and the two have been working together ever since. We couldn’t have written a greater meet cute ourselves.
