The reality star is breaking down all the makeup and hair products her glam squad used for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. In a tutorial shared on her app, Kardashian says she didn’t want to get too dolled up because she was still so inspired by her recent super chill Mexican vacation.

“I’ve had a lot of amazing looks at the MTV Video Music Awards over the years, but my glam at the 2016 VMAs was probably one of my favorites. My makeup was by Mario Dedivanovic and hair by Michael Silva,” she writes. “We were so inspired by my recent trip to Mexico and its vibes of light makeup and wet beach hair.”

Here’s the step-by-step guide on achieving her look:

Makeup

Dedivanovic applied Laura Mercier Soft Foundation in Maple to Kardashian’s face for a “glowy skin.”

Mixing a golden highlighter with a rosy one, he layered on Laura Mercier Face Illumination in Addiction and Laura Mercier Face Illumination in Devotion to make the skin appear sun-kissed.

Dedivanovic then used Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Sand Glow on the inner corners of Kardashian’s eyes to make them pop.

For the lips, Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Color in Sensual was blended in with a finger for a softer look.

Lastly, Dedivanovic set everything with a spray of Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist.

Hair

To get “wet” beach waves, Kenra Platinum CC Snail Creme was applied to Kardashian’s damp hair, coating the tresses from mid-length all the way down to the ends.

Next, Silva worked Kenra Platinum Revive Oil into the hair with his fingers before spraying on Kenra Platinum Texturizing Mist.

Using a diffuser like the ghd Air Professional Performance Hairdryer, Silva dried the hair while keeping its shape. He then created a “natural wavy texture” by taking sections of the hair and applying heat using the ghd Platinum Styler.

To hold everything together, a fine mist of Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray was spritzed on.
