“My aesthetic is about subtle transformations. When I work with a client, I won’t change her into a different person. She has to look like herself. When she looks in the mirror, she feels one hundred percent herself — just the most beautiful version.”
— Mario Dedivanovic

“Still on cloud 9 from attending the @theMasterClass with @MakeupbyMario this past Sunday in Michigan. I’ve wanted to go to his class for years and have prayed he would come to Michigan. I highly encourage anyone who is a makeup artist or just anyone who loves makeup and would like to learn new techniques to go to this class. Yes it is pricey but do I feel it was worth it? WORTH EVERY PENNY! The class was from 12-6 and Mario is so detailed and he goes over everything with such precision and explains why he is doing each step. He is so humble and so hilarious. I love it when people don’t let fame change them and they never forget where they came from and Mario truly appreciates his humble beginnings. I took away so many wonderful things from this class and it’s definitely a day I’ll never forget and I thank God for giving me this opportunity to attend. Oh and the swag bag was AMAZING. I am like a kid at Christmas over here. Thanks again Mario and all of the masterclass crew. All of your hard work and dedication is noticed. Best of luck to you Mario and I can’t wait to see what your future holds and what you have in store for us! “ -Nicole Popham

“Yesterday I went to the Chicago Masterclass with @MakeupbyMario and it was nothing short of magical. I have been more to myself and posting less lately, because I have been transitioning with moving to metro Detroit and starting my new job. I have been stuck in a creative funk and instead of making time to create and enjoy my love of makeup, I had let my life control me. When I saw Mario was coming to Chicago I knew I HAD to go. What I didn’t know, was that this experience would absolutely refresh my perspective. The Masterclass gave me so much insight into the true artistry of makeup. Beyond technique and his signature expensive soft and sexy look, Mario reminded me the power held by a makeup artist to transform uplift and women. I am absolutely refreshed, reenergized, and inspired. I realized that passion is something you have to cultivate for yourself every day. Thank you Mario, for sharing your genuine energy, life and makeup advice with me. I have so much respect for you, and you are truly an icon. I’m honored to have the opportunity and so grateful to be inspired by you. You have touched my life in the very best way— reminding me to work harder than anyone else, and go and achieve my dreams. I cannot wait until we meet again.“ -Sheridan Leatherberry

“What a truly amazing experience. @MakeupbyMario is an inspiration. Not only did he teach a flawless look but I admired how he didn’t neglect how he achieved his success today. He reminded us that with hard work, determination, and love you will flourish. In a world where hard work “should” result in immediate success it was refreshing to see the results of good ole determination and heart. I went to Chicago looking to get makeup tips and I came home with even more wisdom that expected. I am so very grateful!” -Kadrian Shelton

“The knowledge & wisdom I took away from this class was truly a life changing experience. If I could be HALF the makeup artist he is, I would be one happy and talented Individual.

Thank you thank you thank you @makeupbymario for serving your students & being the best teacher to learn from.” -Ona Linton
