If you’ve been keeping up to date with this year’s Met Gala looks, you’ve surely seen Kim Kardashian’s. Her head-to-toe black Balenciaga ensemble has spread all over social media.
It was only natural that fans of Mario Dedivanovic (Kim’s longtime makeup artist) should be disappointed, after all, he’s served up some very iconic Met Gala makeup looks in previous years (including the iconic look inspired by the ” sexy blingy robot “. at the 2016 Met Gala). Why should this year’s Gala be an exception? Why hasn’t her makeup prowess been allowed to shine on the pink carpet again?
Well, it turns out that he was still part of Kim’s glam team that day, even though his work has been kept under wraps. Did he soften things up? Did you remember? Of course not. It’s Mario Dedivanovic: a full glam look – mask or no mask – was inevitable. Here’s a glimpse of what was hiding below …
Mario opted for an unfolded smoky feline eye for Kim (with an inky black winged liner). Her cheeks – and we expect no less from the Contour Queen herself – have also been contoured with expert precision.
From the look of his Instagram feed, he was using his own Makeup By Mario Master Mattes eyeshadow palette. The palette features a rainbow of 12 warm shades, ranging from a milky latte to deep mahogany. The texture is buttery, the finish mat and opaque.

If you just can’t figure out Kim wearing full face makeup under an opaque mask, you’re not alone. Memes came out in force. Luckily, Mario took them all in a good mood (and even joined in by reposting a few of his favorites).
We’re just happy to have gotten a glimpse of Mario’s work that night. Already addicted to the Make-Up By Mario range? Shop a few of our favorite purchases below:
