Get the Kim Kardashian Look

Let’s Face it Kim’s Make up is Flawless

Most people have an opinion about Kim Kardashian, but one thing’s for sure: Whether you love her or hate her, you can’t help but admire how she puts herself together. Good genetics aside, there are a few things us mere mortals can do to get Kim’s look, and here’s the kicker – you don’t have a celebrity income to make it work!

Foundation Phase

Apply foundation everywhere. Yes, everywhere. That means your entire face (forehead, nose, chin cheeks, and eyelids) as well as your exposed bits – ears, chest, arms, legs, and even your feet. This will give you an incredibly smooth, polished look from top to toe. While a little OTT for work or a regular day, this trick is the best way to be 100% photo-ready for a big night out. Check out L.O.V 12 Hour Moisturizing Foundation or essence Foundation Mousse for a slightly more low-key look, for a face that won’t budge use L.O.V contouring palette.

Cover Up

Cover-up dark circles to add to a bright, fresh-looking face. The tried and tested trick, recommended by Kim’s very own makeup artist: Apply a thick layer of concealer under the eyes, but in the shape of an upside-down triangle, brushing out with a concealer brush along the sides of your nose and towards your temples. Finally, blend the edges into your foundation and finish off with a little loose face powder to set. CATRICE Full Coverage Concealer will sort you right out.

Nude, Nude and more Nudes

Contour using a bronzer that isn’t too shockingly different to your natural skin tone, and then go to town with your essence Strobing Highlighter: Apply to the cupid’s bow, chin, and just above the cheekbones. If your skin-type can handle it, add a little dash of golden highlighter (yes, two layers of highlighter) to give your face a warm, Kardashian glow. Here you can use a little essence Pure Nude or Metal Glam Highlighter. Finally, dab a little peach blush (check out essence Silky Touch Blush in Autumn Peach) directly to the apples and blend out to your temples.

Mega lash

Mega eyelash mania is a classic part of Kim’s look. While she does get a little help in the form of individual lash extensions, the good news is that there are other ways to achieve the faux-false lash effect. Use essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara, apply at least 2 coats for extra pop. Separate with a lash brush to nail the fanned-out effect.

Be Bold

Bold brows – the feature that ties Kim’s entire look together. Fill your brows in with essence Browttitude Eyebrow Contouring Palette and set it with a gel or give it a little extra definition with an eyebrow pencil. Boom.

Final Touch

Nude, dewy lips with just a hint of pink or peach are a Kim staple. essence Shine Shine Shine and Matt Matt Matt Lipgloss are the perfect blends of gloss and colour; the perfect final touch before you step out and reveal your inner celebrity diva.
