Steal Kim Kardashian's Make up look. The best make up picks

Thursday Evening- Hello everyone just finished doing my make up as i'm going round to my boyfriends house soon to cook for him and I thought, I havent told any of you about the new make up that I purchased in Paris. eeee it's amazing but i'm gutted because i'm pretty sure it isn't available in the UK. I absolutely love Kim Kardashian, I always have, I don't ever really watch her TV show but I love her make up style so I youtube searched her and found an amazing video with her make up artist actually telling you what make up she wears! (Will post the video in a second)

If you're unfamiliar with who the lady herself is, then I have posted some pictures of her below. Her make up is always immaculate, okay so A LOT of air brushing goes on in the media, we are all aware of this and I am ridiculously aware of it because my media coursework was a 2,000 word essay about the tricks of the media in beauty campaigns, but she does have a natural beauty and her make up does always look immaculate.
As you can see here, the most perfect matte foundation with just a subtle but gorgeous rose tint to her cheeks (I can never get my cheeks to go this way they always go grey.) Her eyes look amazing with a medium to thick line drawn on with a feline flick, but not one of those flicks that is too flicky and actually makes the person look like a cat! I'm guessing she has false lashes on because her lashes look unreal. I love the gold eye shadow that she has on, i've read in a lot of magazines that gold eye shadows brighten your pupils and make your eyes stand out more.

Once again her skin is immaculate here, and she pulls off ever so effortlessly the perrfect smokey eye. I could copy her eye make up because I have dark brown eyes too, but I don't have dark hair so it could look weird on me.

Here she is again with that perfect base and her incredible smokey eyes. It's obvious here that she has different eye lashes on, my guess is that these are eye lash extensions as they look more like the extensions I get rather than actual strip lashes.

Here her face is still the same but she has gone for the silver feline eye look, she can pull it off because she is tanned.

 I think this has to be my favourite. She looks like JLO here. Her eye lashes look really long and I love her eye make up, so simple.

So I just had to find out what make up she wears because she looks so incredible! I've done the hard work for you all and will tell you her secrets!

This is part one. He tells us that they use HD make up forever and mixes moisturiser on his hand with this foundation. They then use a kabuki brush from Mac with it.
The foundation is full coverage but it sheer. Yes, i bought it!

The girls in Paris told me that it is the 'best foundation in Europe' I said well it must be if Kim uses it!
What they say; 


Invisible Cover Foundation

The MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of make up which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye. The HD Foundation is an oil-free medium-to-full coverage liquid foundation which covers skin imperfections, while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life. Its extremely fine texture is supple and easy to apply. Enriched with moisturizing agents, it leaves the skin soft and radiant. It is available in a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones. '''
On these photographs I am wearing the foundation. it is darker than this but the light was bad so it looks very pale. I assure you i'm not this pale. But as you can see, it's good coverage and very imamculate.

He says that they use Make up Forever concealer and I didn't realise this until i've watched it back, if I did i'd have bought that too! They also discuss a Mac concealer, I've used most of them and they're really good. One thing he doesn't mention which I thought he would is a primer or a highlighter. I want to try the touch éclat highlighter from YSL and I use Shu Uemura's primer which is immense. They also discuss a brand I haven't heard of called 'cledepeau' when it comes to concealers.

The beautiful cream colour that she uses is 'fabulush' by Mac, she uses this on her cheeks.
I already have this so bought a new bronzer/powder which was reccomended to me by the Make up Forever ladies in paris. I got it in quite a dark shade and I love it! 
A bit about this; '


Ultra-matte and non-pearly, Mat Bronze is different from standard bronzers, as it gives a natural tanned glow suitable for all skin types (women, men and mature skin) and can be worn throughout the year. 

Thanks to its non-drying formula, it completely evens the complexion, toning down imperfections without drying out the skin. 
With a long-lasting matte, tanned and powdered finish, it sets make-up and ensures a transparent, perfect result. 
Its silky, comfortable texture is pleasant and easy to apply and provides an even finish. 
Mat Bronze protects the skin and fights sun-induced ageing thanks to its anti-free radical vitamin E formula. 
Its glamorous metallic bronze case is easy to distinguish from other powders. 
Mirror and puff included.'''

I personally use MAC mineralise in medium to dark as my powder, she also uses mac in colour NC30, i'm NC35 so we're not far off! Any MAC powder is amazing, it gives you a matte feel.
Even though I have most of the Mac brushes, they discuss the 150 powder brush by MAC, he uses that all over her face, I may have to treat myself to this.

Something I have noticed is that he puts the powder on AFTER he has put her blusher on, I always put my blusher on after wards, maybe that's why it always goes blotchy and grey.

So, if this isn't enough for you and you want to read even more about Kim Kardashian's make up and what make up Kim wears, there is a better and more updated guide for you here.

The above video is part 2 and is teaching you how to do her smokey eyes.

This part is about her eye lashes and her lips.

I hope you all find this useful, after watching these I am going to go shopping and buy pretty much every make up item that she mentions. She is definitely my 'makeup idol' whos yours?

My make up shopping list;
Mac Concealer
A new primer
MAC 150 brush
MAC Kabuki brush
Touch Eclat, YSL
A nice lipgloss
