Kim Kardashian’s look is probably the most requested and duplicated out there–a little too much if you ask me. Don’t get me wrong, she always looks flawless, but just because your petite with dark hair doesn’t mean you can look like Kim..some end up looking like Snooki. Jusy sayin’.
But for all you Kim Kardashian stans, Joyce Bonelli (Kim’s makeup artist) reveals how she gave Kim her latest Golden Globe look on Kim’s blog:
REMEMBER!! It’s Very Important to keep up on your skincare regimen to keep its glamour & to help you have a clean smooth look. On Kim I apply PerfectSkin, LaMer lifting serum, & PerfectSkin eye cream. To condition lips I used Clarks Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm. *Don’t be lazy, this also goes for washing your face at night! Use makeup remover wipes if you are too tired.
I use Makeup Forever’s HD Microperfecting Primer. *This is one of my favs because it comes in 6 shades for color correction on all skin types, including one in clear.
First I lined her lips with a Dark Brown liner by M.A.C. and filled in the corners of her lips *sounds cray cray but this is my fav way to make contrast in a red lip shade! Then I applied and blended lipstick in Ruby by Dolce & Gabbana. To add the pop of red I applied lipstick in Fire by Dolce & Gabbana. AND THEN get the sheen from FUSIONBEAUTY’s Lip Fusion Clear Gloss.
I like to keep Kim’s overall skin to appear matte so I use Sheer Matte by NARS. Blend into the skin with a foundation brush for a flawless touch.
I use Lift Concealor by Make Up For Ever
To bronze & add warmth to her skin I used Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine in Amber Matte. On the hollow of her cheeks I applied Bronzing Powder in Casino by NARS. *For blush I brushed onto the apples of the cheeks Lovejoy by NARS.
I applied Lust Dust by benefit right above the hollows of her cheeks & bridge of her nose.
First I applied the golden shade of NARS Duo eyeshadow in Mediteranee similar to how I did it for her Birthday at TAO. Next on the outer corners of the eyes, crease, & along the lower lash line apply Rose Gold Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow by Bobbi Brown. Apply & blend in over the lid Champagne Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow by Bobbi Brown. To line the lower inside rim I used Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Lionfish. *this eyeliner is perfect for this look because of the light shimmer it gives off to help the look flow. Remember, to finish off the eye, I curl her lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I used Hypnose Drama by Lancome to give the a big bold lash. *As you know, red lips can be risky, so to get away with this look with out appearing too retro I had to use gold tone shimmer for the eye rather than ivory tones. It was also super important that I kept the eye liner thin and purposely didn’t wing the liner out in a ‘cat eye’ shape.
I tweezed them using Tweezerman tweezers. Then filled them in with Benefit’s Brow Zing. *Use an angled brush and apply soft strokes of the pigmented wax to shape and define the brow, then take your small blending brush to apply and set the brow zing’s powder to fill in sparse areas and lock the brows into place.
Finally I set Kim’s entire face with translucent powder by Laura Mercier. *REMEMBER Don’t get all cray cray & over do it, just dust your brush with a touch & then gently apply powder.
