Mario Dedivanovic is the man responsible for 95% of Kim Kardashian West's make-up looks. Her number one go-to guy for glam, Mario has found fame in his own right thanks to his deft hand in all things contour (and non-tour), launching his own series of make-up masterclasses across the world which regularly sell out.
Now, the 33-year-old has landed a major gig with beauty powerhouse Laura Mercier. Overnight the MUA was named as the latest member of the Laura Mercier Makeup Artist Collective and he is the first make-up artist in the brand's 20-year history to be asked by Laura to create looks for a campaign. That campaign is for autumn/winter 2017 with Suki Waterhouse, the brand's first muse.
With icon Laura Mercier on set of her fall 2017 campaign. For the first time in 20 years, Laura has invited another artist to create the look for her brands campaign. I'm honored that she personally asked me to do this and I'm so thrilled to be partnering with @lauramercier. Since the beginning of my career, Laura has been an inspiration to me as an artist. Her incredible talent and taste is truly reflected in her products. It’s exciting for me to partner with a brand that was created by an artist who values my passion for education and teaching.

According to WWD, Laura Mercier is hoping to attract a whole new set of devotees through Mario's social following (which is currently at 3.4 million) with the inevitable additional sales a bonus side effect.
The brand declined to elaborate on how long the partnership would last, but did confirm that Mario will also work on the 2018 spring campaign.
Mario has previously spoken of his love for the brand's Translucent Setting Powder at his masterclasses - "It's universal, it works on all skin tones," he told WWD most recently - so it seems like this is a match made in make-up heaven.
