Kimkardishan Makeup Break Down


Get That Look- Kim Kardashian’s makeup

We have known her as the most popular celebrity in the past few months. She has always managed to be in the eyes of Paparazzi for various reasons. One thing we can’t ignore about her is the flawlessness in her makeup every time she steps outside. Many of us admire her for the looks she sports. Here are a few tips to get the look inspired by Kim Kardashian which she actually shares on her personal blog too from time to time.

Primer-Kim Kardishan:-

The first step in achieving Kim Kardashian’s look is to start with one simple step of applying primer before anything else. Primers have been more popular in recent times still not everyone is aware of its numerous benefits. Primers tend to minimize fine line, reduce large pores and prevent the foundation from appearing as cakey. This evens skin tone and makes the makeup last for a longer time than usual. It also acts as a protective barrier for the skin and provides a smooth surface to apply makeup.

Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist uses La Mer: The Radiant Serum as a primer.

Highlighting- Kim Kardishan:-


Another step in achieving Kim Kardashian’s look is the use of highlighters. It is one of the basics of her look. Just a hint of highlighter on the cheekbones, cupids bow, corners of the eyes and bridge of the nose is just perfect to create a youthful and dewy complexion and gives the skin an instant gorgeous glow.

Kim Kardashian’s look can be achieved with the use of Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo. All you need to do is to apply this highlighter just before the foundation and you just get the glow like Kim Kardashian.

Contouring- Kim Kardishan:-

A skillfully sculpted and a slimmer face is a makeup must and most importantly a great requirement on the red carpet too. Anyone can use the techniques to get that flawless and sculpted look but what matters most is the area where contouring needs to be done to get that look otherwise it will just look like out of place.

Contouring is done to enhance the feature of the face. It creates an illusion of a stronger and sharp jaw line, more chiseled cheeks and a slimmer face.

Kim Kardashian is known to use Makeup Forever’s Camouflage palette.

Concealing- Kim Kardishan:-


Concealers are the most effective makeup items which are able to hide any scar or blemishes on the face. Although Kim Kardashian’s face is devoid of any spots for which she needs the use of concealer, still she is known to use Cle De Peau’s concealer stick for surviving a bad skin day.

Foundation- Kim Kardishan:-

Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist uses Makeup Forever’s HD foundation on her. It is actually capable of giving a HD finish. Upon application it is a little oily & sticky but as it settles down it really gives a matte look and nice heavy coverage.

Powder-Kim Kardishan:-

Powder is must to get a real matte finish and I believe every single women, who is aware of know-how’s of makeup, agrees with it. Kim writes 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.

Blusher & Bronzer- Kim Kardishan:-

If you happen to be a fan of Kim Kardashian’s bronzed cheeks then you may want to buy Smashbox bronzer ‘Bronze lights’ in the sun tan matte shade as she swears to use this one on her personal blog.

And about the rosy cheeks Kim is known to wear quite often, it is a cream blush called ‘Cheek’ which gives her a natural pink blush…:)

Eyes- Kim Kardishan:-

She is a great lover of eye makeup and wears different looks and likes to play with shades. The list of her favorite eye shadows is a long one…!! She uses MAC ‘Carbon’ if it’s a black Smokey look, MAC ‘Knight Divine’ or MAC ‘Print’ if it’s a grey smokey eye. If it’s a brown Smokey eye she uses MAC ‘Embark’.

Kim Kardashian swears to use Mac’s Zoom Lash mascara for long eye lashes along with Lancôme’s Hypnose. She said that she wears MAC’s Zoom Lash first and then tops it with Lancome Hypnose.
