Kim Kardashian West’s Makeup Drawer Might Surprise You
While we’ve been privy to plenty of celebs’ makeup go-tos, including Drew Barrymore‘s and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne, it’s rare to catch an actual glimpse at their vanities, storage methods and all. We just caught a peek at the Holy Grail of makeup drawers, however, as Kim Kardashian West took to Instagram stories to show off her beauty wares, and WOW.
“When did I become this person?” she wrote. Perhaps she’s referring to the massive amount of products, brushes, and sponges that’s crammed into the drawer, but personally we’re a little jelly of all the fun stuff in there.
Sure, it’s a far cry from sister Khloé Kardashian’s extremely tidy makeup setup (but then again, Khloé is the queen of organization), which largely consists of little sis Kylie Jenner’s lip line. Still, it’s a covetable collection, with brands such as Tarte, Benefit, and La Mer sandwiched between all the Kylie and KKW Beauty products you could ever pine for.
Now, let’s see what we can actually spy in North and Saint’s mommy’s makeup drawer, shall we?
Wedged up in the top corner is a travel-sized Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer ($15). Could this be one of the products she uses to get that signature KKW glow?
Naturally, Kardashian West’s stash wouldn’t be complete without a couple of items from her baby sister’s line. Kylie Cosmetics Take Me on Vacation Kyshadow Palette ($52) is a 16-piece eyeshadow palette that’s front and center in Kardashian West’s drawer.
We spot another cult favorite hiding in the array. And the reality star has not one, but THREE Tarte Shape Tape Concealers ($25) stashed in there, so you know it’s gotta be good.
Kardashian West is known for always looking flawless, but the secret to a perfect face is actually good skin. Sisley Paris Double Tenseur Instant + Long-Term Primer ($192) reportedly came recommended by the makeup maven’s new collaborator-in-crime, Jaclyn Hill.
But that’s not all we see in the behind-the-scenes look at the 36-year-old’s vanity. The snap also features a sneak peek at a brand new, not-yet-release KKW Beauty product!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
