Kim Kardashian and make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic (Instagram)
If you’ve already checked out our rather awesome Kimye wedding infographic, you’ll be well aware of the fact that absolutely no expense was spared when Kim Kardashian wed Kanye West - except, it seems, for the bride’s make-up bag. At a wedding where guests ate handmade pasta, the bride wore a custom Givenchy couture gown and it took 3 people to carry the 7-tiered wedding cake, it might come as a surprise that the contents of Kim’s make-up bag were just one-sixteenth of the whopping 6 million dollar budget. Yep, you read that right- Kim Kardashian’s bridal make-up bag cost a total of just $180.
Mario Dedivanovic, Kim’s long-time make-up artist and close pal was on hand on the big day to work his make-up magic on the bride, although he recently revealed the budget status of the products he used. Dedivanovic, who first met Kim 6 years ago at a cover shoot in New York said, “I wanted to keep her look very classic and soft. I went with radiant, dewy skin, a classic black line on the lids, lots of lashes and a nude lip.” Kim had just one make-up look for the wedding, upping the ante for the evening with the addition of a glossy nude lip.
