This Kim Kardashian Makeup Look Only Takes Four Products to Achieve
Kim Kardashian may love a good smoky eye and bold lip, but the reality star tends to keep things natural for her everyday duties. When she’s running errands and dropping off North West at her dance lesson, Kardashian admittedly keeps things simple in the beauty department.
For her latest makeup tutorial with Ariel Tejada, Kardashian shows fans how she likes to look on an average day. In very un-Kardashian fashion, the whole look only takes four products to achieve. (Okay, five if you’re feeling a little feisty.)
“As much as I love a major glam, softer makeup is more my go-to everyday look. You just need a little bit of bronzer, some highlighter, a nude lip and you’re done!” Kardashian writes on her app. “I like to feel more like myself for everyday meetings and errands.”
Here’s how to get to her her “no-makeup makeup,” according to her makeup artist.
Step 1: Bronzer
For a light contour, Tejada recommends using Smashbox Matte Bronzer in Suntan and evenly dispersing the product from the hairline to the temples.
“She definitely wants a darker forehead because that brings symmetry to the face,” he explains. “It brings more attention to the center which illuminates and makes her look like she’s glowing.”
Softly dust off some product under the cheekbones and jawline, and blend the bronzer through the neckline. With a small blending brush, bring some of the product down the side of the nose.
Step 2: Highlighter
Softly apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in So Hollywood to the cheekbones and chin. Using a small blending brush, dust some product down the bridge of the nose for a “cinched” look.
Tejada also applies a bit of product to Kardashian’s upper lip to define her pout. He recommends gently sweeping on a peachy blush during this step for a bit of color.
Step 3: Liner
For the perfect nude lip, line your mouth with MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown.
Step 4: Lipstick
To finish of the look, fill in the lips with a pinky peachy shade. Though Dose of Colors Lipstick in Soft Touch — which is currently sold out everywhere — is what Tejada uses, Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick in Ipanema Beach is a good substitute.
