How to do make up like Kim Kardashian, How to contour like Kim Kardashian


Hello lovelies... i'm pleased to tell you that I have piles of products waiting to be reviewed in the next few weeks, but I just had to alert you to this...
Okay, so if you know me or if you're a regular reader you'll know that I think that Kim Kardashian is just perfect. Okay, no one is perfect but shes pretty close right? Her olive skin and her perfectly long locks, I'd love to look like this girl. Well, wasn't I excited the other day when she shared her biggest beauty secret with the world. Of course, I had to document it. So here it is. I've always wondered how to contour, and I think that's what I like best about Kim Kardashian, the way her make up is contoured. Is it just me who is new to this whole contouring thing and doesn't have a clue how to do it? I think every woman asks the question 'How do I do my make up like Kim Kardashian?' or at least, I am dying to know anyway. Well thanks to Kim, I now know one of her secrets. I am actually going to try this in the morning, I might even be really keen and print the photograph of her out and copy. Would that be weird? Slighty... Everytime I see Kim i'm like 'I wanna be a Kardashian!'...

Here it is, what we've all been waiting for, how to look like Ms Kardashian. Paint your face like a bird. She pretty much puts concealer, ALL over her face. I'd love to know what concealer it is, but what's interesting is that it is extremely light in comparison to her skin tone, but also, it looks as though she uses the same concealer under her eyes, as she does on the rest of her face. This is interesting because I use a thick concealer on my imperfections and a highlighting concealer under my eyes. I'm guessing that she uses a very light concealer, because she looks to me like she has perfect skin so doesn't really need a thick concealer (she has NOTHING to conceal). Therefore, this is probably more like YSL's touch eclat, an illuminating and light reflecting creamy concealer, I don't understand why she has done that on her forehead, but I am going to try it. It's interesting that she hasn't left too much room at the sides of her cheeks, i'm guessing she contours that with a brush, or her make up artist does. When I read about the Victoria's secret models make up, they all said that contouring is key, and that foundation actually takes away the shape of your face, so you have to contour to recreate the shape of your face.

Kardash looked immaculate afterwards, surely by anyones standards. It's odd, but you can actually see that her blusher followers the exact line of where her concealer was. I cannot wait to try this look. I'm not sure why she does that shape on her forehead but I am going to try it out and see how I feel. I also have noticed that she puts s lot underneath her eyes and right up to her bottom lashes, I wonder if she then puts foundation over this - surely? She has just one thin line right down the centre of her nose, I think this is so the light can bounce off it. When she uploaded these photos to twitter, she put the caption as 'try this at home.' Oh how I wish she would bring out a make up book, her make up artist has brought one out called 'FACE TO FACE' which is available on Amazon, but I reckon it isn't actually about her, she is just on the cover of it. I want a 'Kim Kardashian make up book'. Please. I do absolutely adore Kim's make up, the only time I don't like it is when it's too pale. I have written a post before with some really good video tutorials of how to get make up like Kim's so if you haven't read that already you can read it here; (it was one of my first posts!)  But I think it's always been a bit of an obsession, even though I don't even watch her on tv, I always see photos of her and just want to look like her. I guess it's all down to the contouring and the fact that she has a professional make up artist but I do think her look is a great look to aim for. So, tomorrow morning is concealer application time for me, good bye to my contour-less face, hello Miss Kardashian. 




My Concealer wish list to create Kim's look;
- Laura Mercier's secret camouflage followed by a liquid concealer on top. 
'I love the new liquid high definition concealer from Smashbox cosmetics' (as said by her make up artist)
-Giella Cosmetics, Eye M Glam. 'It gives a sheer golden glow to the skin and you can use it anywhere on the face or body. I always apply some to the cheekbones, bridge of nose, inner corner of eyes and on the collarbones.'
-Makeup Forever concealer pallete
-I'd reccommend Loreal's lumi magique highlighter pen, just like touch eclat, but cheaper.

Yep, I am going to hunt down all of the above in the hope that it makes me look like KK.
How do you feel about Kim Kardashian?
Are you good at 'contouring?!'

P.S, I did a new Youtube Video; 'Empties'

  16. I'm a makeup artist and agree that contouring is soooo important. A lot of people mistakenly think you need a nice even skin tone but that actually gives your face no shape and you get a bit of a moonface look.

    Even if you just start with a little blush and highlighter over the cheekbones that's a good start but it's even better when you shade in the hollows of your cheeks and under the jawbone as KK has done.

    Saying this I do find it hard to contour my own skin without it being too noticeably because I am sooo pale, so it often takes me a stupidly long time until I am happy with it.

  29. This is such a good post! Thank you for posting this, I am so awful with contouring, but this looks really simple. Plus, using concealer sounds much easier than using different tones of foundation etc. For this excellent post, I will definitely be following your blog.

  30. I love the Kardashians too! I follow KK, and her sisters on instagram! I saw the post about her contouring and it made me want to try it too! I loved your post btw, said everything I was thinking when I saw it! I want to know the next step though, like what she puts on top of the concealer... I think you're right, surely it is foundation. I also wonder whether she uses and illuminator at all, like the one benefit sell? Her makeup is immaculate. Thanks for following my blog by the way love, I hope you like it!
    Btw girl... you are tanned! What do you use? :)

    2. They all do. Kendall and Kylie Jenner have great instas! What is your instagram? Follow me at Frankie Franks. Such a great app! I will definitely research this makeup technique. Although you have to be SO careful, Ive seen facey pics of people who have obviously tried to contour and in pictures they literally look like they havent put the foundation over the top. I guess you have to be careful with the coverage of your concealer. I think the YSL one you mentioned would be perfect though. Not too thick. haha nice to meet you long lost twin!! xxx
