Mario Dedivanovic has been the main makeup artist behind Kim Kardashian's famous face for years, along with her sisters' and an impressive roster of other A-list celebrity clients. 

As the frontman of Kim's glam squad, Dedivanovic is a regular feature on her app/website, breaking down the reality star's favorite looks in step-by-step tutorials. Plus, he shared a slew of life-changing tips and tricks during a Master Class in Los Angeles earlier this year, including a crazy-long list of products and tools used in Kim Kardashian's 50-step beauty routine. The price tag on this fully-loaded Kim-worthy makeup bag? An eye-watering  $1,700. And when you're the Kween of the Kardashian empire, why not splurge? Fortunately for the rest of us, that doesn't mean Dedivanovic can't appreciate a good drug

The beauty pro made a CVS run recently and snapped the whole thing for our viewing/note-taking pleasure. (Follow him on Snapchat: @makeupbymario) From false lashes to mascara to hairspray, here are the drugstore essentials that Dedivanovic stocks up on:
