Kim Kardashian West

• To prep the skin, Dedivanovic used Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Cream to give Kim’s skin a soft, moisturized base.

• To give Kim a natural look, Dedivanovic applied Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Maple ($65) to even out her complexion and give her a “lit from within” glow.
• To ensure her flawless look lasted all night, he dusted Laura Mercer Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($62) all over her t-zone.
• Dedivanovic contoured Kim’s hairline, nose and cheekbones using Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-03 ($50) to give her skin a sun-kissed, radiant glow.
• To give the cheeks a summery, peach flush, Dedivanovic lightly dusted Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper ($40). This added a pop of color to Kim’s face, without distracting from her lustrous skin.
• Dedivanovic applied Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Addiction ($50) to the inner corners of Kim’s eyes and on her cupid’s bow to brighten her complexion. He then dusted Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Devotion ($50) along her cheeks to highlight her striking cheekbones.
• He then gave Kim’s skin a warm glow using Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in both Addiction and Devotion on her chest, collarbone and legs.
• Finally, Dedivanovic lightly spritzed Kim’s complexion with Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, giving her skin a fresh gleam.

• To make Kim’s eyes look sultry and bronzed, Dedivanovic lightly swept Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow ($45) across the lid. He then applied the Copper shade from the Laura Mercier Eye Art Caviar Colour-Inspired Palette on the outer corners of the eye and across the lower lash line to make her eyes pop.
• In creating Kim’s signature bold brows, Dedivanovic applied Laura Mercier Brow Dimension Fiber Infused Colour Gel in Brunette to the outer corners of her brows, using a mascara wand to create more drama and apply a thicker layer of product. He then colored the middle of the brows with gel, using light strokes to create a softer look.

• Dedivanovic lined the lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Hazelnut Tea ($35) to keep Kim’s lips looking soft and natural.
• Finally, he applied Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual ($40) to give her a perfect nude pout.
