It was the wedding of the year.
And with eyes from every corner of the globe on her, Kim Kardashian made sure she was picture perfect for her and Kanye West’s nuptials over the weekend by hiring old friend and celebrity makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic.
Fresh off the plane from Florence, where the celebrity couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony on Saturday, Dedivanovic was interviewed on Channel Nine’s Mornings on Wednesday, explaining how contouring with foundation is key to perfect Kim’s flawless look.

‘I did her make-up for her wedding and it was amazing,’ he said.
Mario, who met Kim on a make-up shoot in New York over five years ago, said despite the global audience he wasn’t nervous about the very important role he played in her wedding.
‘We worked together for so long so I’m so comfortable with her face. It was actually not nerve wracking. It was a great experience. She looked stunning,’ he said of the new Mrs Kardashian West.
Despite a gagging order preventing him from revealing any secrets about her third trip up the aisle, he did reveal by video link from New York how wonderful the experience was.
‘It was a magical weekend. 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.’

No nerves: ‘I’m so comfortable with Kim’s face,’ Mario told presenters Sonia Kruger and David Campbell.
To get chiseled cheeks and a flawless face like Kim on her wedding day, Mario divulged his secrets.
‘Contouring frames the face and chisels the cheeks. So basically it’s putting a little bit of bronzer on the hairline and jawline and on the hollows of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. It thins out the face and gives warmth to the face,’ he explained.
‘Sometimes it takes 20 minutes, sometimes an hour. The most important is to blend, blend, blend,’ he added.

The colour and style of Kim’s ensemble and her hairstyle are major factors when Mario makes up North’s mother.
‘Usually we look at what she’s going to be wearing or the event she will be attending. I take inspiration from her outfit and her hair,’ he revealed to presenters Sonia Kruger and David Campbell.
It’s unknown whether Kim’s best friend and the other half of her glam squad, make-up artist Joyce Bonelli played any party in her wedding makeup.
Bonelli did attend Kimye’s wedding on Saturday, but she embarrassed the reality star just a few days earlier when she flashed her breasts at Kim’s bachelorette party outside the historic Louvre.
