Twenty years after he began his beauty career as a sales associate at Sephora, Mario Dedivanovic launched his own makeup brand, Makeup by Mario, at the mega-beauty retailer in 2020. Between the two milestones, he discovered a passion for makeup artistry, built a portfolio assisting makeup artists on editorial and celebrity work, rose through the ranks, found fame as the man behind Kim Kardashian’s sculpted look, launched his globally renowned MasterClass, and garnered a devoted fan base in the millions. All that time, he had a clear plan.
“For the past 20 years of my career, it was always a dream to create my own line,” Dedivanovic shares. “I always felt there was room in the market for an artistry brand with tried-and-true techniques and a strong pillar of education — that was always my vision.”
And he achieved that vision. Makeup by Mario is a true artistry brand — it shows in the tiny details, the thoughtful touches, and ground-breaking innovation baked into each product he launches. His products are purposeful, his formulations smart, and his approach unmatched. Dedivanovic and his brand are both staples in the modern day makeup landscape, and if you haven’t tried anything from the line you’re truly missing out.
