WHAT MAKE UP DOES KIM KARDASHIAN WEAR, STEAL KIM KARDASHIANS MAKE UP LOOKS


Hello lovelies, so if you follow me on twitter (@emshelx) you’ll be aware that I am currently on my way to Belgium! I really hope that I get the chance to grab some items so that I can do a Belgium Haul post including lots of new products. If you read my blog you’ll have probably guessed that I am quite obsessed with Kim kardashian’s make up. But, to be honest, who isn’t. She always looks immaculate and this is my 3rd post about her make up, this time though, it is more indepth with more research as to what products she actually uses.

 
For Kim Kardashian, it really is all about skin. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her face looking bad. Okay, yes the media does edit everyone, I’ve written numerous essays about how the media makes beauty unattainable, because everyone is airbrushed. However, I genuinely do just think that Kim has a crazily perfect face, whether you like Kim or not, I think her make up is something to aspire to. I am going to talk you through what I think she does to achieve this/what I would do to achieve the same look.


PREP AND PRIME. Of course, every make up artists secret. I always used to be like, waah primers are so expensive, what even is the point of them. But recently, since using primers every single day, I’ve noticed such a difference in my complexion. A primer is essential for perfect make up application, don’t let anyone tell you any different. It evens your skin tone and just makes your make up sit nicer, on a smoother base and it prevents it sliding off. My favorite primers are Shu Uemura’s UV underbase, it’s around £35.00 which is so steep, but it’s their best selling product, it really is worth getting your hands on this if you can because it’s probably the best primer I’ve ever used. I’d also recommend Mac Cosmetics prep and prime, this is also gorgeous and it has a light shimmer to it, so it gives you a hint of Kim Kardashian’s glowing complexion, this is only £18.00 which is quite cheap for MAC. Recently, I’ve being using Wild About Beauty’s botanical skin prep primer and Urban Decay’s primer – these are both quite similar to Macs, but they contain better ingredients, so no nasty things are going on your skin. Basically, just make sure that you use a primer for perfect make up application. I’ve read that Kim’s make up artist uses La Mer: The Radiant Serum – unfortunately, for us normal people over £200 is a little bit too much to spend on your face.


HIGHLIGHTING – Aaah ever really looked at Kims cheeks and thought wow, they look so much more defined than mine. Yep, me too. I’ve read numerous times that Kim Kardashian’s make up artist swears by using highlighters. The highlighters that I would recommend to create the same look would have to be Benefit’s High Beam, if you haven’t ever used this product, I promise it will give you that wide-eyed-bushy-tailed look that Kim Always seems to have. It’s perfect for accentuating the cheek bones and adding a healthy glow to the skin. This is around £25 from what I can remember, but my pot literally lasted me years, it’s only just run out. I have seen dupes of this in cheap make up shops such as Bodycare in the UK, pretty much the exact same highlighter for under £5.00. Something which I would highly recommend though is Nourish’s Body Souffle – This has become one of my favorite products lately, however, it was only when I read a review the other day on someone elses blog that I learnt that this product can be used as a face primer or a face highlighter. Much like Benefit’s sunbeam, which is something that I’ve wanted to try for ages. This primer, come highlighter come body soufflé can literally be used for everything. It reflects the particles in your skin for a flawless finish, I absolutely love what it does to my legs, it coats them with a beautiful colour and almost makes it look like you have skin tights on (that’s how perfect this product makes your skin look). This is just over £25 from what I remember, but the pot is huge and can be used in a number of ways. Put this on your cheek bones before foundation application and I promise that you will soon have Kim Kardashian’s Golden glow.



CONTOURING and CONCEALING – L’oreal Lumi Maqigue – Yes, I rave about this product on a daily basis, although it runs out really quickly, I think it’s the perfect pen for doing the contouring that Kim Kardashian does on her face. Or, if you fancy spending a bit more money, try YSL’s touché éclat, I personally think that Loreal’s Lumi Magique is exactly the same product at half the price but I will let you decide that. I literally layer this product under my eyes and again, on my cheek bones. It’s so easy to apply, and if you apply it the sameway that Kim does to contour, it should perfectly define your best features. This pen can be used as a highlighter as well. I’ve read that Kim uses Make Up Forever’s camouflage palette, which I need to get my hands on, but unfortunately it is only used in the UK. I’ve also read on Kim’s personal blog that she uses Cle De Peau’s concealer stick (which I don’t think is available in the UK) but similar concealers can be found at Bobbi Brown or Mac Cosmetics. Not that Kim has any spots to conceal. Pft!



FOUNDATION - I’ve read before that Kim uses MAKE UP FOREVER’s HD foundation – I actually wore this last night for the first time in ages and now I remember why I love it so much. At first, it seems really sticky and oily when it’s on your face, but, once you let it dry, it goes really nice and matte. I bought this when I was in Paris and only bought it after watching a Youtube video with Kim’s make up artist who said that he uses this foundation on her. It really does give you a HD finish. Similar foundations which I would recommend for the heavy matte look are Mac cosmetics studio fix, I wear shade NC35 as it has yellow undertones, rather than the NW colours which are pink undertones. Estee Lauders double wear is quite similar to both of the foundations, but it is a bit too heavy for me. I like Mac because it is buildable coverage.


POWDER – In order to get a real matte finish, powder is a necessity. It’s my pet hate when people don’t wear powder, it just means that your foundation will go sticky and look oily. I personally use Mac’s mineralize skin finish in colour medium to dark. Kim said on her personal blog that she uses MAC cosmetics Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC30 and then brushes MAC’s powder in NW45 over the top for a tan.


BRONZER/BLUSHER– Kim always seems to have really bronzed cheeks, I have read that once again, her make up artist uses Make up Forever. However, on Kim’s own blog she said that she uses Smashbox bronzer; ‘Bronze lights’ in the suntan matte shade. I want to buy this now I’ve seen that she apparently wears it. I’ve read that she uses cream blush in a pink colour called ‘Cheek’ for a rosey look. MAC sell cream blushes which are really good to recreate Kim Kardashian’s luminious cheek looks.


EYES - On Kim’s personal blog she discusses her favorite colours for a smokey look, she said she uses ‘carbon’ by MAC if it’s a black smokey look, but ‘Knight Divine’ or ‘Print’ if it’s a grey smokey eye. If it’s a brown smokey eye she will use ‘Embark’ by MAC. I think these colours are pretty easy to get from most places, I’d recommend Urban Decays naked palette for all of the colours in one palette, or for a cheaper alternative try MUA. Kim Kardashian apparently uses Mac’s Zoom Lash mascara for long eye lashes, which I can believe, as I also use this because it is incredible. I’ve also read that she uses Lancome’s Hypnose, which is easily just as good – but more expaensive. She said that she puts MAC’s Zoom Lash on first and then Lancome on top. I’m guessing that she wears lashes though, I’d recommend ‘Girls with Attitude; who do incredible lashes or Shu Uemera for a more expensive pair (Cheryl Cole wears these eye lashes apparently!).


LIPS: Kim’s lips are usually neutral, I’d recommend mac’s lipstick in ‘myth’ their best seller as it is perfectly nude. I’ve read that she actually wears Nars ‘belle de jour’ but lines her lips first with MAC Subculture lipliner.

If that wasn't enough for you, read here for more tips on how to do your make up like Kim Kardashian, including videos!

Also, I made my own Kim Kardashian make up video which you can see here!

Lots of love, Em x x x
