Copy Kim K’s make-up to the letter!
Wednesday, 5 October 2011
We’re just crazy about Makeup 411, a site that gets hold of celebs’ make-up artists and has them spill the deets on how they created their looks.
Mario Dedivanovic is the make-up artist who glamorized Kim Kardashian for the launch of her new fragrance. According to him, Kim’s look was half ‘sexy vamp’, half ‘soft and pretty’.
To even out her skin, he used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in Golden Beige* before applying MAC blush in Springsheen (a shimmery true peach) to her cheeks.

Kim’s eyes were enhanced using a mix of neutral eye shadows from NARS
(Cyprus on the lid), Smashbox
(Walnut in the crease) and MAC
(Vanilla on the brow bone and Carbon on the lash line).This was followed by a slick of Make Up For Ever waterproof eyeliner in Black
and L’Oréal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black
On her lips, he used Dior Addict lipstick in Vintage Coral and a slick of Josie Maran Plumping lip gloss in Optimism*, a shiny nude-coloured hue.

*Alas, Armani and Josie Maran and NARS cosmetics aren’t available in South Africa. Tamryn O’Dea, a professional make-up arist based in Cape Town, reckons a good dupe for Josie Maran’s Optimism lip gloss would be MAC Lip Glass in See Thru.
