Kim Kardashian's Makeup Artist Tells Us About Oiling Her Butt for 'Paper'

Just another day in the life.

Kim Kardashian is very loyal to her beauty gurus, so it's no surprise that her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic was on-set to prep her for that now-infamous, almost-internet-breaking Paper shoot. While Kim's brows and face contouring are legendary, no one was really looking at her face in this shoot — let's be honest. 

After her bare butt, the next most noticeable thing in that editorial spread is how oily she is. I mean, distractingly oily. I had to know more. What is this shiny, shiny product? How was it applied?

Dedivanovic shared some details with me via email. "The oil was a product from Europe. I do not have the name of it but it's similar to baby oil," he said.  He simply put it in a spritz bottle and "I sprayed it all over her body." No rubbing involved. 

Okay, so at least we can rule out all the American products. But just think how popular that oil could have become if only someone had looked at the label — it's a missed opportunity, mystery European baby oil brand! HOW CAN NO ONE KNOW THE NAME OF THE OIL? Sigh. It will go down as one of the great Kardashian mysteries, sort of like what Kanye did with all of Kim's old Herve Leger bandage dresses

Oh, and in case you were curious about her makeup: "For the face, we went with a simple peachy nude lip and a black liquid line on the eyes. I filled in her brows with Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in dark brown," Dedivanovic said. "I did not use any powder so the skin was more dewy." 

Not as dewy as the rest of her though, obviously.
