Kim Kardashian's wedding make-up artist reveals secrets behind star's look

Kim Kardashian looked absolutely flawless for her wedding to Kanye West last weekend.

Her make-up was picture perfect – thanks to her old friend and celebrity make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic, who Kim hired to transform her for her big day.

Now Mario, who just jetted back from Florence after the nuptials, has spoken about doing Kim's make-up for the wedding of the year during an interview with Channel Nine's Mornings.

"It was amazing," said Mario, who Kim first met on a shoot over five years ago. "We worked together for so long that I'm so comfortable with her face.

"It was actually not nerve-wracking. It was a great experience. She looked stunning."

He is under a gagging order that prevents him from revealing any secrets about Kim's lavish ceremony, but he did describe the event as "magical".

"It was a magical weekend," he said. "I can't really speak of any details. To put it in one word, it was magical. It was amazing. I am very happy for her."

Mario also revealed his secrets for perfecting the contouring look that Kim has made famous.

"Contouring frames the face and chisels the cheeks," he said. "So basically it's putting a little bit of bronzer on the hairline and jawline and on the hollows of the cheeks and the bridges of the nose.

"It thins out the face and gives warmth to the face."

It does, however, require patience and you need to have a bit of time on your hands.

"Sometimes it takes 20 minutes, sometimes an hour," he said. "The most important thing is to blend, blend, blend."

Before applying her make-up, Mario discusses with Kim what outfit she will be wearing and what event she will be attending.

"Usually we look at what she's going to be wearing or the event she will be attending," he said. "I take inspiration from her outfit and her hair."
