Kim Kardashian and makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic held a four-hour master class over the weekend, showing hundreds of people how they, too, could look like a bronzed Kardashian. Some guests traveled from other countries to attend, and some paid $1,000 for the class.

You may have Kardashian fatigue, but this weekend showed that there are many who do not. Fans paid between $299.99 and $999.99 to learn how Kardashian achieves her dewy glow at the Pasadena Civic Conference Center this Saturday, the L.A. Times reports. The tickets came with gift bags and a "certificate of completion," suitable for hanging up next to your diploma. Those who shelled out the big bucks got loaded gift bags, plus the chance to take a photo with Kardashian and Dedivanovic themselves.

Guests were said to be dressed to the nines (and included actress Ashley Tisdale), and they were apparently riveted from the moment a makeup-free Kardashian took the stage and throughout her transformation.

Dedivanovic began with moisturizer, then did Kardashian's brows, foundation, eye makeup, false lashes, contouring and finally, lips. This took kind of a while because it was a class, but Kardashian usually only books two hours to do her hair and makeup.


Some of Dedivanovic's glam tips included putting foundation on your ears, and applying a cream shadow underneath a powder shadow so that the makeup lasts longer. Kardashian said that if she must sleep in her makeup, she can do so on a pillow encased in black satin.

Kardashian praised Dedivanovic for being quiet while he does her makeup. "That's my time to wind down or check emails or I've just woken up. He's always given me my space."

Sure, okay. Sounds like a normal person's life, I suppose. She finished the session by taking a photo of herself with a camera that's been discontinued. She said it makes all her pictures "so flawless," and she may ask the manufacturer to make it again, because that's what you do when you're American royalty.
