First and foremost, to ease any worries, the makeup artist relies on three gummy vitamin supplements that do more than just cure a sweet tooth. 

“My days can get very hectic and it’s so crucial to have the OLLY Ultimate Beauty Kit with me while constantly on the go. … Particularly during the busy holiday season, it’s important to take a moment to relax and de-stress. I love the Goodbye Stress gummies because they work fast to keep my mind and body calm,” the beauty guru added.

Other than starting on your skin from within, Dedivanovic also spilled how you can master a done-up look in a matter of minutes that are perfect for those nights you’re rushing from work to a fancy fete.

“Right now I’m loving a natural glam look and I love to draw out the best version of a woman’s natural complexion and features;” he said.

“During the holiday season, lips should be the main focus,” the makeup artist told Stylish. “Lipstick adds that immediate boost of confidence and a pop of color and the added drama goes a long way. If you’re short on time, apply a bit of color on the middle of your lips and blend it well into your natural lips.”

If you want to take it up a notch and experiment with some shimmer or glitter, but are faced with the dreaded makeup removal process at the end of the night, Dedivanovic has a simple solution for that too.

“Like all stubborn makeup, shimmer and glitter is best removed with oil and a cotton pad,” he dished. “Soak the cotton pad with baby oil and gently glide and sweep over your skin. It always does the trick.”
