Kim Kardashian can now add “Makeup Master” to her never-ending list of achievements. The reality star and her longtime makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, staged a makeup seminar Saturday titled “The Master Class” at the Pasadena Civic Conference Center.
Hundreds of fans of all shapes and sizes showed up to witness Dedivanovic work his magic on Kardashian’s face. The Los Angeles Times reported fans lined up outside the venue as they waited to get inside to learn Kardashia’s secrets. Some people came from as far away as Sweden, Ecuador and Abu Dhabi.
Tickets for the event ranged from $300 to $1,000. Apart from the four-hour seminar, attendees were also given gift bags filled with the pair’s favorite beauty products, along with a certificate of completion. The fans who opted for premium tickets were able to have their pictures taken with the reality star and the celebrity makeup artist.
The Mirror reported “High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale was among the hundreds of people who attended the event. The actress is readying a fashion blog called The Haute Mess to be launched Wednesday. She admitted on an Instagram post she learned a lot from Kardashian and Dedivanovic.
Apart from sharing their beauty secrets, Kardashian also spoke about her professional relationship with Dedivanovic. The pair have worked together for more than eight years, and she told the attendees about the secret of the longevity of their artist-client partnership.
“You have to know, if you’re gonna be in someone’s face and keep the job, you have to definitely be more on the quiet side,” she said. “He’s always given me my space. He’s helped me through so many things, but still never stepped over that boundary,” she said.
For those who missed the seminar, Dedivanovic went to Entertainment Tonight last week to do a contouring demo. Kardashian is known for using the makeup technique to define her features. Dedivanovic showed off how to do what he calls a “diet for the face” in just a couple of minutes.
