If it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert, then Kim Kardashian West has reached that status for getting glam. In a new post on her app, she shares, “Sometimes it feels like I’ve been sitting in the makeup chair every day for 10 years.” And all of that time has not gone to waste. “Along the way, I’ve picked up some great beauty hacks,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reveals. Time to take notes, people.
As the unofficial queen of contour, Kardashian West is no stranger to the woes of foundation stains on your clothes… and lucky for us, she’s got the *perfect* at-home fix for those oops moments. “There’s nothing worse than being fully ready and realizing you have foundation on your clothes,” she writes.
But she has a genius, at-home hack to eliminate cosmetics-induced discoloration. “To get rid of makeup stains, shaving cream often does the trick,” she advises. “Just apply to the stain and then lightly wet or wash. If the stain still won’t come out, you can also use a drop of rubbing alcohol mixed with the shaving cream. The stain should lift out easily.”
When you’re dealing with the, ahem, pesky pitfalls of deodorant marks on your clothes, Kardashian West says, “It’s really unexpected, but nylon stockings can get deodorant stains out of clothes. Rubbing a clean pair of nylon stockings on a white deodorant stain will help it disappear. I’ve also heard that a sponge, beauty blender or even a dryer sheet will work.”
The mom of two also shared a getting-ready must-have: the recently-viral Ta-Ta Towel.
“It’s such a smart product. It’s a towel you wear around your boobs while you’re getting ready,” she says. “It prevents sweating and keeps your hands free. Such a good idea, when you’re getting glam for a night out —especially if you’re bigger on top.”
