Mario Dedivanovic (aka Makeup By Mario) has been the go-to makeup artist of Salma Hayek, Kate Bosworth and of course, Kim Kardashian for YEARS, so it was only a matter of time before he created his own namesake brand. Enter: Makeup By Mario - a collection that sets out to inspire playful experimentation via decadent textures and vibrant hues for all skin tones. The best news? While Makeup By Mario has been available on the other side of the pond for almost a year now, it's only just launched into Cult Beauty, meaning us UK-based Mario superfans can finally get our fill.
Who is Mario Dedivanovic?
Not sure who Mario is? Let us give you some background. Mario Dedivanovic was born in New York and got his start in makeup while working as a fragrance consultant at Sephora. He worked as a make-up artist for many years before meeting Kim Kardashian in 2008, at which point he quickly became an Instagram sensation. He created Kim's signature 'soft glam' look: flawless skin, contoured cheekbones, 90's lips and soft, smoky eyes.
Mario also founded 'The Master Class', a makeup artistry live event, which is conducted by Mario and available to attend through the exclusive purchase of tickets from The Master Class site.
