It鈥檚 been a cautious (and totally eyebrow-raising) return to public life for Kim Kardashian 鈥 stepping out with Kanye for this first time just this week (without her engagement ring) 鈥 and we can鈥檛 really blame her. After the terrifying robbery she endured and her hubby鈥檚 hospitalization, Kim decided to take some time off. Though now, slowly but surely, she鈥檚 started to re-emerge, continuing with new pics from the reality celeb that show her prepping, primping and getting silly behind-the-scenes.

Though Kim herself hasn鈥檛 jumped back onto social media with her past vigor, her friend and makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, shared some never-before-seen pics of the famous Kardashian via her app.

鈥淭hey were always so fun and had great energy. Nick is the nicest guy,鈥 Mario added. 鈥淲e would glam, listen to music and shoot all day. Nick loved that signature look of ours. His lighting captured it so well.鈥 No doubt.

But there鈥檚 also a cheeky side to Kim. 鈥淲henever I need a good laugh I go back and look at these,鈥 he admitted. 鈥淚 always try to make her laugh when I take pics but my favorites are when she鈥檚 yawning or dancing.鈥 We would love to see ALL of that!
