Makeup with Mario- Kim Kardashian... and extras (info overload!)

Here you'll find Kim Kardashian's Official Site, Celebrity Makeup Artist- Mario Dedivanovic's Official Site, direct links to the 3-Part Makeup with Mario series, a list of all the products used from the video AND links to two YouTube Guru Makeup tutorials that achieved the Kim Kardashian inspired look. When I said info overload, I meant it! ( a good way)

Well, we've got to start somewhere, so since it was indeed socialite, Kim Kardashian that inspired me to hunt for her makeup products when I first discovered her, it is with she that I will begin this 'beauty' journey.

Since Kim K. has an official site of her own, and over time many requests for her fashion sense and makeup tips have been requested, she and celebrity makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic created a 3-part series of How-Tos on her site to compliment Kim's photoshoot for Vegas magazine (which Mario did an intesified version of the look for that project.)

Since I became so familiar with this 3-part series, I took notes for you. =) Here's a Shopping List of the Products (w/Color):
