My amazzzinggg makeup artist, Joyce Bonelli, has put together a step-by-step guide to creating the look I wore on the cover of Cosmopolitan Middle East! We went for a very natural look, with light-colored lips and a natural looking eye makeup.
Here are Joyce’s tips and tricks:
STEP 1: KOURTNEY’S SKIN
I always start Kourtney off by preping her skin with Perfect Skin.
STEP 2: PRIMER
I used Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier to prep Kourtney’s skin.
STEP 3: FOUNDATION
For this look I used Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation by Bobbi Brown.
STEP 4: UNDER EYES
I use Secret Concealer by Laura Mercier. *Try blending from the outer corners in to keep concealer from settling in fine lines under the eyes for flawless coverage. The stick form makes it easy to use!
STEP 5: SET
I like to set Kourtney’s gorgeous skin with Super Matte Loose Powder by Make Up For Ever. *A fair powder that gives the skin a soft focus on and off camera.
STEP 6: BROWS
I filled Kourtney’s brows in with Brow Tech by SMASHBOX. *I always use the lightest shade in brow products for a more natural look.
STEP 7: KOURTNEY’S EYES
I first applied Multi- Acton Concealer by YSL to the Kourtney’s eye lids. I first applied Eyeshadow in Blunt by Urban Decay to the entire lid. I then applied Eye Shadow in Chopper by Urban Decay to Kourtney’s upper & lower lash lines and smudged it up from either corner of the lid. I finished the shadow off by blending Eyeshadow in Smog by Urban Decay just above the crease blended it down. Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx by SMASHBOX, is what I used to line the inside of the upper lash line. For this look I applied individual lashes to Kourtney’s upper lash lines and finished them off with Doll Lash by Lancome to make them pop. Remember, to finish off the eye, I curl her lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler.
STEP 8: KOURTNEY’S CHEEKS
To give Kourtney’s cheeks a touch of color I first applied Blush in Sex Appeal by NARS to the apples of her cheeks. Just under the apples of her cheeks I applied Terracotta Mosaic Tan Enhancing Bronzer by Guerlain to the hallows of her cheeks.
STEP 9: KOURTNEY’S LUMINOUS GLOW
Right above the apples of Kourtney’s cheeks I applied Urbanglow Cream Highlight in Moonshine by Urban Decay to highlight her cheekbones.
STEP 10: KOURTNEY’S LIPS
To define Kourtney’s gorgeous lip shape I used The Nude Lip Liner by SMASHBOX. Lipstick in Dusty Rose by NARS is what I used to fill in the lip. I finished her lips with Lip Gloss in Nude by Bobbi Brown to give a glossy coat.
