Kim Kardashian Hopes Fans Can Re-create Her Met Gala Makeup
The reality star and her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic landed on a look "that would be easy for women to create at home," he says.
Cue the copycats. Kim Kardashian opted for a monochromatic makeup look that wouldn't compete with her Peter Dundas for Cavalli gown at the Met Gala on Monday — and wanted a look that would be "classic for years to come" and "easy for women to create at home," says the star's longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.
Using exclusively Marc Jacobs Beauty products, Mario made a conscious decision not to go too literal with the theme, instead going for a fresh take on Kim's signature nude makeup. "We knew a lot of celebrities would be doing bright red lips and wings on the eye tonight, so we wanted to do something a little different that stayed true to her," he says.
To get this spin on Kim's trademark look, Dedivanovic started by prepping the star's skin with Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Oil-Free Foundation ($48) and Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer. And when it came to contouring, Dedivanovic used #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder ($49) in Hi Fi Filter 60, followed by a dusting of Shameless Bold Blush ($30) in 220 Shameless.
A defined eye is essential to this nude look, explains Dedivanovic, who layered the brand's Twinkle Pop Eye Stick ($28) in Au Revoir 406 with Style Eye-Con No.7 – Plush Shadow in The Dreamer ($59). Using Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25) in Mari(Gold) 70, he gave her a very subtle winged eye in a nod to the evening's China theme.
Lashes were amped up with the application of individual false lashes, and primped with a coat of O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara ($26) in Blacquer. And to finish the look with "a gorgeous, peachy nude lip that Kim loves," Dedivanovic chose a swipe of New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel ($30) in Anais 146. Try this at home, kids.
