Mario Dedivanovic is Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist and he's recently shared how he went from hiding make-up in a shoebox to working with some of the most famous women in the world.
In a recent interview with ABC News the make-up artist showcased his amazing talent, as well as revealed just how humble he is despite having some very high profile clients. Dedivanovic’s love of make-up began at an early age and he knew being a make-up artist was his calling. A job a Sephora helped him learn his craft, as he worked his way up through the ranks of the famous make-up store.
His time at Sephora prepared him for his first job as a weekend make-up artist with Fox News. Not long after he landed the job, he got a call that would change his life forever.
"I got a call from a photographer a friend of mine and he said, 'Hey I'm doing this cover tomorrow with this girl named Kim Kardashian. Can you do it?' I was like, 'No, I can't.' I was like, 'I have to work at Fox. I was not going to do it, but then they were able to kind of switch the times. I just remember thinking how beautiful she was she loved the makeup so much she kept taking selfies nonstop," he recalls of how he met the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
After the initial meeting, Kim began requesting Dedivanovic for all of her getting glam needs. The two formed a beautiful friendship and his celebrity make-up artist career was launched. He even severed ties with the agency he was working for when they suggested he dump the reality star in the beginning of his career. Staying with Kardashian was the best decision he has ever made and he is proud of standing by his friend.
It has been ten years since Mario Dedivanovic began doing Kim Kardashian’s make-up. Now the two have launched their own make-up line together, KKW Beauty X Mario, another dream come true for him.
"Kim has hundreds of millions of followers. I know that all those are not makeup artists. I wanted to make sure that the product was very easy to use for anybody," he shared about the new line, which has already had to be stocked on the website.
