Kim Kardashian Will Inspire You to Update Your Go-To Makeup Look
The Kardashian-Jenners are big patrons of the arts — the makeup arts! After making contouring makeup mainstream this year, Kim Kardashian + fam have been working on adding makeup + beauty to their mogul credentials, Kim hosting makeup workshops with her guru Mario Dedivanovic and Kylie launching her own beauty blog. Yup, the KUWTK stars have no problem revealing their beauty secrets to their legions of fans. Seems like each time they post a selfie from the makeup chair, our Pinterest beauty board and Sephora wish list grows. Kim’s latest selfie is no different.
The newly-minted soccer mom posted this pic of her makeup progress along with the caption, “#TricksOfTheTrade Shot an amazing make up tutorial today with none other than my boo thang make up King @makeupbymario for KimKardashianWest.com #Contour #Lips #BlueSmokeyEye #DarkLip”
It looks like Kim’s MUA Mario has taken highlighting to the next level with gradient patches of light colored concealer winging out from her lips and eyes, giving her whole face a lifted look. Shading to make you appear like you’re smiling even with your RBF on? That’s definitely a #trickofthetrade.
But honestly, we’re most captivated by those blue-rimmed eyes. Talk about show-stopping eye makeup! It’s perfect for a birthday dinner, girl’s night out or maybe even for an evening wedding. With the tools you need to achieve a similar look, you’ll never go gray again.
1. Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Pearlescent Cobalt ($21): This shade of cobalt blue is the perfect match for Kim’s smokey blue eyes. Use some eyeshadow primer beforehand to really bring out the pigment.
2. Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner in Noir ($25): Use a soft, ultra black kohl pencil just on your waterline (if you don’t have sensitive eyes!) to get a super intense look. The black liner adds dimension to your eyes.
3. MAC Extended Play Gigalash Lash Mascara ($17): For this, you’ll need a mascara formula that is great for building up up your lashes without getting too bulky or clumpy. This MAC Extended Play is great for that. Remember, the key is wispy.
4. Ardell False Lashes ($4): Go va-va-voom with the same glam, fake lash brand that Kaitlyn Bristowe uses. Kim K is always sporting super long lashes, so these are perfect for giving your eyes the extra boost.
