The secret to Kim Kardashian's glowing Emmys look? This 'powerhouse' cult-favourite beauty product

Although Kim Kardashian’s black velvet gown didn’t score any major points in the fashion department last night at the Emmy Awards (it was basically a repeat look from the week before), as always, the reality TV star pulled out all the stops in the beauty department.

While it's no surprise Kardashian’s longtime makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic (@MakeupByMario), used KKW Beauty to create her signature ‘90s-inspired smokey look, he also revealed to use an award-winning skincare line to prep her skin.

Taking his excitement to work the Emmy Awards to Instagram, Dedivanovic shares a photo captioned, “Prepping skin with @tatcha.”


Inspired by ancient Japanese geisha beauty secrets, Tatcha’s formulations are perfected by science to enhance the skin’s natural appearance involving the very best green teas, Okinawa red algae, and rice bran. The brand’s best-sellers include The Luminus Dewy Skin mist and The Dewy Skin Cream — both were which Dedivanovic used on Kim last night.

To get the 411 on the products Dedivanovic used to get Kim award-season ready, scroll below to learn why they’re worth the hype.
