What Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist) Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic — who works with our current cover star Kim Kardashian (he did her makeup for said cover) and has a partnership with OLLY vitamins — about the wet wipes, deodorant, and razor he can’t live without.

My brother got me a Braun electric razor for Christmas two or three years ago. I didn’t use it for a while because I was so used to my traditional razor — I have very sensitive skin, and I do break out from razors quite a bit. But when I started using it, I noticed how fast it gets rid of your facial hair. This is a new one I bought, which I’ve been using for travel, and love. There’s absolutely no pain, no in-growns, no scraping. It has made my life a lot easier. I also love that I can flip this over, and on the other side there’s a flat trimmer that I can use to clean up my mustache. I’m really anal — I have to trim my mustache every single day so it’s clean and straight. A lot of people don’t do that; I notice when people have hairs crawling into their mouth.

I wish that Wet Ones would just sponsor me — these wipes are probably my most heavily used product. I have them all over my house, my office, and about ten packs in my makeup kit at all times. Obviously, working with makeup all day, I’m constantly wiping my hands. I feel that the wipes themselves don’t dry out my hands. There’s also something about the smell that I really love, that’s nostalgic to me. Most importantly, the wipes don’t leave a residue. I hate residues, I hate oiliness, and these don’t leave any of that. And ever since I can remember, I’ve used the actual package itself to dry the face: After I spray it [with setting spray], I grab a pack of Wet Ones and I use the whole thing as a fan.

Years ago, my friend Chris McMillan told me on set one day, “Oh, Jen Aniston loves this deodorant, it works amazing, it lasts forever.” So I bought it on Amazon right there on the spot. I almost wish I hadn’t, because it is pretty pricey for a deodorant and it sells out quickly and you can only really get it online. But when I put this on, I feel so secure that I will never have any type of sweating, or any type of smell — I’m crazy about smells. I don’t know what is in it exactly (which is a little scary), but I love it. It has a powdery smell that’s very subtle.

When it comes to business, I’m a geek. My friend sent me this book as a gift when I got my new office. I do a lot of research, and marketing is one of those areas that I’m very interested in. The book is quite old, but I agree with so many of the things in it.

I love all of Tom Ford’s fragrances — except for the Fucking Fabulous one. That I’m not a big fan of, but all the other ones I like. I’ve collected fragrances since I was a teenager, so I have a ton — a ton — of them. But if I had to pick only one, it would be Tobacco Vanille. It’s masculine and it’s sexy. I like to spray it on my arm early in the morning, so by the time I get to work it has sort of faded. My arms are constantly in people’s faces, so I just want to have something that smells pleasant and not feminine. I don’t like feminine or soapy smells.

A great everyday cream. I love everything that Tatcha does, but I have an attachment to this particular product because Vicky Tsai, the founder of Tatcha, made it inspired by me, in the sense that she knows how I’ve always loved very emollient moisturizers. It works really nice with makeup, too.
