Let it be known that when you invite Mario Dedivanovic (the @makeupbymario responsible for a good portion of Kim K's glam) to the office to play with some makeup and take a few photos, the look will not be natural—not that we would want it to be. Looking low-key is a great thing, but it's only made better by the fact that you can look extra cheekbone-eyebrow-contour fabulous when Mario is in town. Given that the man has 878K Insta-followers (are you one of them? You should be), it seemed appropriate to pair him with similarly internet-popular Shaughnessy Brown, and to let them get to work.
Mario is a contour open book—he's known for it and relied on the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in Medium for everything from cheekbones, to blush, to lip color (the pink square is key here). Really, it's contour for all seasons in one neat package. However, the one product he wouldn't talk about was what foundation he used. Creamy and comprehensive in coverage is all we could figure out. Beyond that, we couldn't tell you. Hey, everyone's got to have a trade secret. One tip he did share was filling Shaughnessy's naturally dark brows in with a blond pencil—that way they don't look too defined and just a little more filled in. Wouldn't want them taking over the show here.
But as seamless as the contour job was, the real star of the show is the coppery blended magic going on around the eyes. Mario used a combination of Tom Ford Beauty Cream Color for Eyes in Spice as a base for the lids, Charlotte Tilbury's Color Chameleon Color Morphing Eye Shadow Pencil in Champagne Diamonds overtop, and then he waterlined Shaughnessy's eyes with a By Terry Crayon Khôl Terrybly in Bronze Generation. All shimmery in their own way, with a healthy dose of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black, and the look is perfectly high-impact but not so wholly unwearable that it's intimidating. Rather, it's just shiny enough...and it pairs well with all that '70s stuff we've been talking about. Well done, Mario.
