Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, aka the Contour King and Kim Kardashian’s right-hand man, is hosting a high-profile beauty masterclass with his muse in Los Angeles. To boost their (US$300) ticket sales, the power pair is going hard on the promo, and Mario gave a special interview to US beauty mag Allure about how he and Kim work in harmony.
After years of dolling up her famous features, he says Kim’s face ‘still inspires’ him. Her dreamiest assets to work on? The eyes, he says. ‘She has beautiful almond-shaped eyes and very long lashes, and she looks great with bronzy, nude shades.‘
But really, what we want to know = his thoughts on contouring, THE biggest trend that has come out of KUWTK.
Surely he’d be teaching his signature technique at the masterclass? ‘Yes! But we’ll focus more on when it’s appropriate and when it’s not.’ Interesting. With the backlash against contouring from other high-profile makeup artists and social-media users, it seems even Mario and Kim feel it needs to be reined in.
Some are seeing ‘strobing’ as contouring’s counter-trend, with the beauty bandwagon all on the movement at the moment – but not Mario.
‘The whole strobing thing doesn’t bother me at all. It’s simply highlighting, and just like contouring it’s been around forever. I’ll be teaching some of that too.’
Not LA-bound? No doubt the masterclass highlights (and contours) will be shared on social media for us all to ponder soon…
