Kim Kardashian Inspired FOTD

Hey everyone! There's been a marathon on E! today of Khloe & Lamar and Keeping Up with the Kardashains... so inevitably, I was inspired to throw together a Kardashian makeup look. It's characterized by carefully highlighted skin, smokey eyes, long lashes, and peachy nude lips. I did use quite a few high-end items that I just haven't messed with in awhile. I was really happy with the way it turned out, so I thought I'd share the products I used! :)

FACE:
  • Revlon Colorstay & Rimmel Match Perfection foundations - my Colorstay shade is a bit light right now, so I used it in the center of the face & on top of cheekbones, and used Match Perfection everywhere else. I'm so please with the finish!
  • Mally Cancellation Concealer System- it's a cream that you set with a powder- very brightening for the under-eye area, and really anywhere.
  • MAC Studio Fix powder- lightly over T-zone
  • IT Cosmetics "My Sculpted Face" palette- used it the same way as the demo in my face contouring video.
  • MAC Cream blush in Posey- patted into the apples of the cheeks and upward.
  • Milani Minerals blush in Mai Tai- very lightly, to set cream blush.
  • LORAC Perfectly Lit Powder in Spotlight- on cheekbones, down the nose, and center of forehead.
EYES:
  • NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer - smeared all over the lids, into the crease, and onto the brow bone.
  • MAC Shroom- shimmery white, patted on all over the lid, and lightly under the brow.
  • MAC Handwritten- matte brown, patted on the outer half of the lid, and smudged on lower lashline.
  • MAC Cork- warm light to medium brown, all over the crease- and to blend out any harsh edges at the end. Definitely a key shade in warming up the deep colors in this look.
  • MAC Carbon- matte black, used to deepen up the outer corner area.
  • Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Black- all across upper lashline and winged out at the ends. Also blended onto the outer third of lower lashline.
  • NYX Slide On pencil liner in Black- on the waterline.
  • Rimmel Extra Wow Lash Mascara- upper lashes
  • Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara- lower lashes
  • Select Lash S42 False Eyelashes- These are $1.25 from Dollar General! I LOVE them. Mentioned them in my latest video- Dollar Store Beauty Adventure!
LIPS:
  • MAC Creme d'Nude- all over lips
  • Hard Candy Automatic lip liner in Natural- blended on the outsides of top & bottom lip to create some dimension, as opposed to one flat color all over.
  • Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss in Endless Summer- light shimmery neutral- all over lips.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog, and have a great week!!

  24. I just LOVE this look - KIM K always has fab make up!

  25. I am definitely going to try this look this weekend! I just thought I'd mention for everyone else that dupes for cork, shroom and handwritten can be found in the WNW Vanity palette. Supposedly the dark brown is a dead ringer for handwritten and the other two are close enough to recreate this look IMO! Thank you Emily!

  26. A tutorial would be great, this look is super sexy and sultry!

  33. Love this look! I have a question, Do you have oily lids? The reason being I'm thinking of trying maybelline gel liner and I have very grease lids so the only thing that last super long on me is Mac's fuildline. So I'm trying to figure out if it's worth try.

    ReplyDelete
  34. wow! well done, you look so pretty beautyful. i'll have to try it also.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Emily, you're prettier than Kim K. And you're talented, so lovable, real and from your videos, have amazing an heart and passion. I look forward to watching your videos and reading your blog. You can't do no wrong. You're so amazing!

    ReplyDelete
