Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic knows a thing or two about staying ahead of the trends. After all, with celebrity clientele including the Kardashian clan and a portfolio brimming with editorial, advertising and fashion shoots for prestigious publications, Dedivanovic himself sets the tone for the latest cosmetic looks.
After returning from a whirlwind trip featuring an editorial shoot for L’uomo Vogue (men’s Italian Vogue) and a stop in Dubai where Dedivanovic worked with royalty(!), we finally caught up with the busy makeup artist. In an exclusive BeautyXpose interview, Dedivanovic reveals the latest trends in makeup for spring 2010 and explains why sometimes, it’s the classic looks that work best.
BX: What do you think are the hottest new makeup trends?
MD: Lashes! I’m a big fan of lashes and I think we’ll be seeing longer, thicker and fuller lashes in 2010. Tanned/bronzed skin will be big also. (The fake kind, hopefully.)
BX: Will bright bold lips last through spring or fizzle out?
MD: Bright bold lips will certainly last through the spring. In fact, they will last forever for many women. A bold lip is gorgeous with no other color on the face and a nice, full lash.
BX: What about cat eyes? Will the winged liner look hold out this year?
MD: For sure. The winged liner is another look that will always be in style to many woman. I think we’ll see cat eyes all over the place and maybe done in metallic and different shades of liner.
BX: Do you think mineral foundations will continue to be just as popular with the everyday woman? What about at home airbrush systems?
MD: Mineral Foundations will be even more popular with women. I think companies will be coming out with more advanced, anti-aging formulas as well. Home airbrush systems are very cool; however I think it’s a very hard sell and not the most user friendly.
BX: If there’s one item a woman should add to her beauty arsenal right now, what is it and why?
MD: A foundation that matches her skin. The skin should look flawless always. Everything else is just “extra.” Try NARS Sheer Glow Foundation.
