Kim Kardashian West and Mario Dedivanovic are Back With a Second Collaboration
We are ready for round two.
It has been quite the year for KKW Beauty. From hitting the shelves at Ulta stores to releasing a makeup palette with model Winnie Harlow, Kim Kardashian West has been offering her fans a lot. And to end the year on a high note, Kardashian West and her makeup artist of over 11 years Mario Dedivanovic are teaming up on a second collaboration. The reality star confirmed via Instagram that KKW x MARIO: The Artist & Muse makeup collection is launching on November 22 at 3pm EST.
The pair has been teasing the launch for a few months now. Back in July, Dedivanovic captioned an Instagram photo of him doing Kardashian West’s makeup: “Are we ready for a #KKWxMARIO 2.0 collection??” Other sneak peeks include photos of them building a palette, edited with a black and white filter in an effort to keep the shades hush.
Considering their first KKW x MARIO line from March 2018 sold out immediately, we can only assume the same will happen for this one.
Dedivanovic says that as he nears his 19th year in the makeup industry, he “made a decision to solely devote [his] time & energy to projects that are 100% meaningful to [him].” To the artist, that means continuing to work with his “muse” and source for inspiration, Kardashian West, on bigger projects like this one.

Can’t believe the time has come to finally announce this passion project I’ve been working on for the past year. #KKWxMARIO : The Artist & Muse. This collection means the world to me. As I approached my 19th year as a makeup artist, I made a decision to solely devote my time & energy to projects that are 100% meaningful to me. For the past 11+ years, Kim has not only been a muse to me, she’s been a source of inspiration to an entire generation of beauty lovers around the world. She’s opened doors and provided opportunities for me and for makeup artists in general that I know have changed this industry forever. With this collection and campaign (which consists of some of my all time favorite shades and textures) I wanted to personally honor her and to thank her on behalf of every boy and girl out there who’s life she’s touched in some way. She is my muse and she is our muse. ♥️ stay tuned for all of the amazing campaign images. I hope I make you all proud ??? #MakeupByMario @kimkardashian @donnatrope @kkwbeauty. Launching 11/22 on kkwbeauty.com
Kardashian West also shared a sweet sentiment to Dedivanovic saying, “I’ve watched him grow from a talented young artist who slowly and respectfully worked his way up through the years in the old fashioned way, never expecting shortcuts and always putting his work and others first. He values hard work and is loyal to the core. Never one to follow trends, he’s become a trailblazer, pioneer, educator and an inspiration to artists around the world.”

For over 11 years, Mario and I have worked together and created some incredible glam moments. I’ve watched him grow from a talented young artist who slowly and respectfully worked his way up through the years in the the old fashioned way, never expecting short cuts and always putting his work and others first. He values hard work and is loyal to the core. Never one to follow trends, he’s become a trailblazer, pioneer, educator and an inspiration to artists around the world. I’m so excited I can finally announce our 2nd collaboration together. I’ve watched him work passionately for the past year on this collection and campaign (and he’s also driven us all crazy!) in his quest for perfection. Stay tuned for round 2 of KKW x MARIO: The Artist And Muse ♥️ You guys are going to love this collection!!!
From a relationship this pure, only good can come.
