Inside Kim Kardashian’s $150,000 Wedding Beauty Prep

The price of beauty!

Kim Kardashian looked flawless at her Saturday nuptials to Kris Humphries, but getting that glammed up didn’t come cheap. The reality star indulged in $150,000 worth of grooming services, albeit free, to get ready for her big day.

The 30-year-old bride got VIP treatment with a late-night brow touch-up hours before she walked down the aisle. Kardashian tweeted a pic of brow pro Anastasia cleaning up her arches in her hotel room at 11:30 p.m.

“She has such beautiful eyes and lashes so I used high arch from my kit, brunette powder to fill in certain areas, and caramel tinted brow gel to make her eyes stand out,” Anastasia told Us Weekly.

As for her wedding-day makeup, the E! megstar enlisted celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic to recreate her signature look: smoky eyes, full brows, pink blush and glossy pink lips. The only over-the-top touch: what appeared to be several sets of false lashes.

“I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a part of such an important and special day in Kim’s life,” Dedivanovic wrote on his blog August 4. “I’ve envisioned what she would look like as a bride ever since I began working with her and I finally get to bring that vision of beauty to life!

And although she had lightened up her brunette locks in July, Kardashian returned to L.A.’s Goodform Salon weeks before her big day to go back to her darker roots. A source tells Us that she opted for a glossy, semi-permanent glaze that was close to her natural color: a minky brown.

Get the Look: Marisa Tomei 2011 Oscars

CELEBRITY MAKE-UP ARTIST MATTHEW VANLEEUWEN
CREATED PRESENTER MARISA TOMEI’S RED CARPET LOOK
FOR THE 83rd ANNUAL OSCAR AWARDS
USING EXCLUSIVELY ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS PRODUCT

For Marisa Tomei’s gorgeous red carpet look, makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen worked exclusively with Anastasia Beverly Hills product.

Matthew took the Anastasia Highlighting Crème Duo in St Tropezdipped into the crème blush and applied it in gentle back and forth sweeps across Marisa’s smiling cheeks. (Pro tip: smiling makes the job mistake proof, because it helps the blush go where it’s supposed to). Using the same brush, Matthew dipped into the highlighting crème and brushed the tops of the lips and nose with the illuminating fluid. The skin was “so translucent and smooth looking!”

Turning to brows, Matthew filled and shaped Marisa’s with Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette  and created a few feathery strokes in the brow and to define the bottom edge of the brow. Matthew then took Anastasia Brow Duality Penc and placed a bit of the matte highlighter just at the arch of the brow. The total effect is ultra defined and crisp brows that perfectly frame the face.

Moving to the eyes, Matthew took Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette 1  and dusted the soft pink sorbet shadow all over the eye to brighten and tone the skin. Matthew raved that “the shadow is so smoothing and imparts a modern velvety texture.” Then Matthew took Illumin8 palette 3  and blended the mauve shade into the crease “to create the perfect shade of orchid.” Next, Matthew lined the eye with a thin line of black pencil and smudged the sparkly blue/black shadow from Illumin8 palette #3 into the lashline to create a softer, smokey eyeline.

The eye makeup was finished by curling the lashes and applying two coats of Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara, which Matthew says “has reached cult status with many of my clients…it’s incredible.”

Finally to finish Marisa’s stunning look, Matthew applied Anastasia Hydrafull Lip Gloss in Sangria , a gorgeous soft amethyst berry shade.
