If you've been keeping up with Kim Kardashian long enough, you've definitely heard of her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic. The two recently released a makeup line, including an eyeshadow palette, lipstick, and lip gloss.
If there's one thing we know about Kim K, it's that she's got expensive taste, and that includes the makeup products she uses on her face. As her most trusted makeup advisor, Mario always knows just what to use to keep Kim rocking that famous Kardashian glow.
Mario knows that not all of Kim's fans can afford the same products she can, so he's been nice enough to drop a few of his drugstore favourites over the years. These products are a lot more affordable, and will still give you that amazing look you're striving for!
"It's all about picking the right tone," says Dedivanovic of L'Oreal's True Match Foundation. This product comes in three different tones, for cool, neutral and warm skin tones. It may be more expensive than some other drugstore foundations, but a little product goes a long way, and the bottle will last you FOREVER.
Although the Kardashians themselves make some great highlighters, they can be a bit too expensive for some of us! If you're looking for an affordable, but still high quality highlighter, you'll want to pick yourself up one of the Physcian's Formula Mineral Glow Powder Palettes. This product is absolutely beautiful, and will give you that perfect Kim K glow.
If you're worried about your makeup creasing or melting this summer, you need to invest in this pressed powder ASAP. Dedivanovic uses this product to get rid of unwanted shine, and keep his work in place, all day long.
If you can't afford Kim's new 'Conceal, Bake, Brighten' Kit, don't worry; I can't either. What you totally can afford, though, is this NYX Concealer Wand. The formula is super long lasting and will cover any imperfections and brighten your complexion.
Good, affordable eyeshadow can be hard to come by, but these L'Oreal Infallible Shadows are not only long-lasting and super easy to blend, but they also come in an amazing range of colours! They're only $8.96 each, and can totally bring the perfect pop of colour to your eye look.
I personally love a good liquid lipstick, and Kim K's makeup artist does too! Many of the high end brands, like Anastasia Beverly Hills, or even Kylie's Lip Kits can get quite pricey. These Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipsticks are an amazing formula for an even better price! They come in a ton of gorgeous colours, perfect for all skin tones and hair colours.
This is one of Mario's favourite drugstore products, because it provides the extreme black colour and volume of high-end mascaras, but at a fraction of the price. This mascara has been my go-to for years when I'm not wearing falsies, and I personally love it because it never clumps and makes my lashes look amazing.
Once you start wearing fake lashes, it can be hard to stop. Many high-end brand lashes run for upwards of $30 a pair, and that's definitely not bank account friendly for most of us. What Mario recommends as a great alternative are the Ardell lashes! They run for less than $20 for a multi-pack, and are reusable!
Blush is an amazing tool to make you look more awake and refreshed, and if you don't want to spend too much on a high-end one, Milani makes some gorgeous ones for good prices. Most of the blushes have varied tones, meaning they suit multiple skin tones and blend perfectly!
If you prefer liquid to powder highlighter, Mario recommends the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow. The product comes in several tones, perfect for warm, cool, and neutral tones, much like the brand's foundation. The product will leave you looking dewy, fresh, and glowing all at a great price.
If liquid lipsticks don't interest you, the Maybelline Colour Sensational is always a safe bet. The formula is super creamy, and applies very smooth! They've also got an incredible shade range, as well as a variety of finishes.
