Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist reveals his eyeliner hack

Could lip pencils be the new eyeliner?

Could Kim Kardashian West be taking a break from her trademark smoky eyeliner and dramatic fake lashes look? According to her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, he’s been changing up Kim’s look over the past three weeks, ditching false lashes and black liner altogether.

Dedivanovic revealed on his Instagram that to create Kim’s Harper's Bazaar Icons party makeup look, he used a dark brown concealer as a base on her lids, followed by a combination of eyeshadow shades from his recent palette collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills.

His biggest trick however, was that instead of the stock standard black liner, he used a reddish lip pencil to line the upper lid and his signature bronze pencil on the waterline. “No lashes or dark liners used to keep the look fresh,” he commented on his Instagram snap of Kim’s look.

And while he hasn’t revealed any lash lengthening secrets, we highly suspect that lash extensions and liberally applied mascara are responsible for Kim’s gorgeous, defined lashes.
