Other:  “I created this look on Kim for her first of many fragrance launch events at Sephora in Miami,” said Dedivanovic. “Kim and I like to decide together on the look that we’re going for and on this day, we actually asked her fans on Twitter for their help in deciding on a make-up look. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to give her a sexy, vamp look or go for soft and pretty make-up. In the end, I created an in-between look, playing up her eyes a bit with winged-out liner on the top and bottom, rather than with dark shadows. Most importantly, I wanted her skin to glow and look radiant on the red carpet.”


Mario Dedivanovic will be making an appearance at IMATS Los Angeles 2019. He will make a Hall Three appearance for a 60-minute interview on Sunday, Jan. 13—time to be determined later. Directly after this interview with Make-Up Artist magazine publisher/IMATS executive producer Michael Key, Dedivanovic will do a 60-minute signing of Make-Up Artist magazine Issue 135 (which he is both on the cover of and featured within).
