Kim Kardashian Inspired Make-up Tutorial
Posted on October 30 2014
Kim Kardashian is well known for a strong contour, golden smokey eye, black liner, full lashes and nude lips. I went a bit crazy with the liner in the inner corner to change the shape of my eyes and I love the final result. Here’s how I achieved this look:
Where to start
1. Create your base by applying the Crownbrush Liquid Foundation (I am using FK115) mixed with Crownbrush Illuminating Liquid Highlighter in shade FK140 allover your face. I love mixing these two together for a glowy finish.
2. To add definition, use the Crownbrush Concealer Palette. There is a shade for everyone. I used shades 2 (to highlight) and 5 (to contour), both from the bottom row. Use the darker shade under the cheekbones, on the sides of your nose, along your jawline and temples. Highlight the centre of your nose, forehead and most importantly – you under eye area with the light shade. Kim K always goes for a lot of concealer under her eyes. Blend everything with a makeup sponge or a buffing brush and set with a powder. I used my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette to set my makeup and add a gorgeous glow to the skin.
3. Apply a peachy pink blush to your cheeks. I used shade 3 from the bottom row of the Crownbrush Lip Palette. You can use a powder blush as well.
4. To add the most beautiful golden highlight to the tops of your cheekbones, use the Crownbrush Illuminating Liquid Highlighter in shade Rose Gold (FK165). It is simply stunning! I apply it with my fingers and it is a dream to blend.
5. For the lips, I used the Crownbrush Lip Palette again and opted for the light nude shade (last in the bottom row). I love the way it looks paired with the smokey eye.
Now for the eyes
6. To create the eye makeup look, I used my UD Naked Palette, but Crownbrush do a cheaper option called Under Exposed. Use a gold shade allover the lid and along the bottom lashline, a tiny bit of the black to define the crease and the outer corners. I also used the lightest shade in the inner corners and under the brow bone.
7. To achieve the cat eye, I went all out and used black gel liner along the top and bottom lashline and on my waterline, focusing on making the inner corners appear sharper and elongated. Adding a long winged line in the outer corner will help to make your eyes appear bigger as well.
8. Kim is all about the lashes, so I had to make sure they are really long. I used Primark Sultry Lashes on the top lash line and a couple of bunches of Duralash individual lashes along the bottom lash line.
9. Add lashings of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the falsies and fill in your brows. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Brunette.
