Kim Kardashian really shook things up in Paris in 2016 when she attended the Balenciaga show wearing absolutely no makeup. This wasn’t a “no-makeup makeup look.” She was literally not wearing a drop of makeup. Artist Mario Dedivanovic told People how her aesthetic had been changing. “We’ve been doing cleaner looks in the past month,” Mario explained. “I’m not sure why the switch happened, it’s just refreshing and something different. I thought it was time.”
Mario explained how that particular day went. “She got dressed, and we thought she looked so beautiful the way she was, just like that,” he said. “She had a spray tan done, and her skin just looked so beautiful, and so we just decided, ‘Let’s go for it! No makeup.'”
For any doubters, Mario stressed: “We said, if we’re gonna go for it, let’s really go for it.” While the spray tan was key, Mario added that he used Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream, Glossier’s ‘Balm.com’ lip balm, and he curled her lashes.
Kim had been of that mindset for a while, breaking away from the glamorous look fans came to expect. At the Vogue Festival in 2016, Kim spoke about this and made reference to Kanye West. “I think right now it’s more about nontouring, like real skin with less make-up on it,” she said. “I’m trying to wear less… and my husband loves me without make-up.” At the festival, Kim mentioned the early days of her reality show with her “crazy hair and bad make-up.” Hey girl, everyone questions some of their decisions.
