Celebrity Secrets – Cheap & Cheerful Cosmetics

Achieving celebrity beauty ideals doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, some of the most glamorous celeb looks are created using cheaper, drugstore alternatives. Makeup artist to the stars, Mario Dedivanovic, often uses cheap and cheerful products. His star-studded clientele includes the Kardashian sisters, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, Kate Bosworth, Blake Lively and Eva Longoria. Kimmy K’s favourite makeup artist has opened up his cosmetic bag and allowed us to have a sneak peek at the drugstore alternatives that he uses to beautify our favourite A-listers.

Camouflage Coverage

celebrity For medium to heavy coverage, Mario uses NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand. The lightweight emollient-rich formula camouflages imperfections without looking heavy or cakey.

Poreless Perfection

celebrity For a natural finish with poreless-effect skin, the celebrity makeup guru uses Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation. The miracle foundation was specifically designed for normal to oily skin. Pores appear diminished due to blurring micro powders, while shine is kept under control for a natural matte finish,

Lighten Up!

celebrity Illuminate like Kimmy K with Mario’s favourite drugstore highlighter, L’Oréal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator. The lightweight formula highlights key features such as the brow and cheekbones to ensure a luminous glow that rivals Miz Kardashian-West. The liquid highlighter is available in three colour variations, gold, rose and ice shades, meaning that there is a shade to suit every skintone and complexion.

Finishing Touches

celebrity Set your celebrity look with NYX Studio Finishing Powder – Translucent Finish. The 100% pure mineral silica powder creates a radiant and luminous finish. Wear alone or over foundation to keep your A-list makeup in check.

Turn up the Volume!

celebrity To dramatically frame the eyes, Mario opts for L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. The volumising mascara resists clumping lashes, instead the mascara softens the lash and adds volume up to 5 times greater than the lashes natural thickness. The maximising formula thickens quickly and evenly, while separating lashes and creating bold volume.

Pucker Up

celebrity Mario creates Kim Kardashian’s classic nude lip with Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Blush Beige. The long-lasting lipstick is enriched with pure precious oils for a uniquely sensuous feel.
