Kim Kardashian Style Guide

Kim Kardashian, Makeup Icon

Kim Kardashian is the reality show queen who has achieved a tremendous amount of success by allowing viewers to get a glimpse of her busy lifestyle, as she conquers her world as a young business woman. She is well known for many reasons, but the most words everyone thinks of when she’s seen at red carpet events are "unbelievably beautiful".

Yes, Kim is gorgeous, with her unique facial features that make her a classic natural beauty. But this woman has the skill of enhancing her natural features to an overwhelmingly obvious beautiful perfection. Credit is always given to her stylists, makeup artists and fitness trainers, but the vision has to be shared with the woman and expert. Kim has the natural talent of knowing what looks fantastic on her and how to amplify her stunning looks .
The bombshell has been candid about her life with all her challenges and successes. Kim, you’re one of a kind and your makeup deserves recognition. You inspire many women, you help women see how makeup is not about covering up flaws, but really playing up your most beautiful features that are unique to you. Your makeup deserves an award for inspiring so many women.

Kim Kardashian's Signature Makeup Looks

She has many makeup looks that stand out, but the one she’s known most for is her amazing smoky eyes that accentuate her seductively almond shaped eyes. This is achieved with a black eye-liner on the top and bottom of her eyes. The eye shadow is smoked out around the eyes and the crease usually has a darker brown or black to enhance the shape of the eye. Her brow bones are highlighted with a light shimmer.
  • Tip: Kim Kardashian’s makeup is always perfectly blended together to create that smooth and flawless look. If you want her look, you must use proper brushes to blend all eye shadow colours together.

Queen of Lashes for Best Results

Kim has amazingly long natural lashes, but the key to getting striking makeup is that she always makes sure she has full lashes on the top and bottom of her eyes. If you look closely at her photos, her eyes are brought out even more because she really enhances her lashes on the upper and lower lids. This creates a sultry look that is unmatched by many women. Her lashes look super natural because she is confident. She does this with ease, because she wears extra lashes for most of her red carpet appearances.

Contoured Cheekbones that Pop out

Kim loves contouring techniques so her best facial features come out. She is also a fan of various cosmetic lines such as Fushion Makeup, NARS, M.A.C. Cosmetics, and much more that help her to create flawless makeup. She isn’t afraid of trying something new. She rocks out various products that work perfectly to her skin type and complexion. Kim’s cheekbones are always high and pronounced. To achieve this amazing look, you’ll need to follow a few basic steps.
  1. Use a matte bronzer that is three shades lighter than your face complexion. Contour right underneath the cheekbones.
  2. Use a light highlighter, right above the cheekbones for maximum results. This will make your cheekbones look tremendously higher.
  3. Use a nice peach or pink blush, depending on your undertones, use a medium size brush and apply on the apples of your cheeks. This will blend all three colours to create those natural looking high chisled cheekbones.

Lipstick Perfection for Full Lips

To get Kim Kardashian’s luscious and high-shine lips, you must use a neutral lip liner, lipstick, lip gloss and clear lip gloss (all in that order) to fully bring out your lips in the best way possible. The combination of layering your lips with the right lip products will help to create the illusion of larger and fuller lips. She makes it look so effortless, but really you can get the same look that you desire.

Kim’s Signature Makeup Looks

Kim Kardashian is sexy, confident and independent. She really knows what looks best on her and she sticks with those amazing Makeup looks. The key to her Makeup success is that she keeps evolving and trying new Makeup techniques and products. She does the all natural nude look, super sexy smoky eyes and the gold goddess that oozes appeal—And all of these looks wouldn’t look half as good, if she didn’t have the love for herself and vision of her own beauty. She is undeniably a makeup icon that isn’t afraid of trying new looks and experimenting.
  • Tips: Always use face primer, a great eye concealer, fill in sparse eyebrows and even better, be confident with yourself!

  1. I'd love to see her make-upless. :D
    Following and supporting!

  2. wow this was really helpful, thanks for sharing!

  3. Man, girls really go through a lot to look good? I like it when girls don't wear makeup :)

  4. She is GORGEOUS!

    Any makeup tips for those organically inclined?

  5. It must be hard having to deal with all that...

  6. she does seem to have good makeup regularly.

  7. I want to wake up, look in the mirror, and see that I have magically been transformed into this chick's stunt double :) She always looks amazing!

  8. @Hart: As far as quality, available everywhere organic wear goes, I am a fan of Natural Origins by Physician's Formula. It's mostly mineral makeup, and it's not tested on animals, so that is always a plus. Their bronzer is probably my favorite. If you're looking for something a little higher end, many salons, such as Aveda, have their own line of organic makeup. Again, their products are not tested on animals. Physician's Formula you can find in most drug stores and department stores, and Aveda products you can get online and from Aveda salons. Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

  9. Kim is super hot but without all that makeup i dont think she would look that good :P

  10. Did you mean matte bronzer 3 shades "darker"? not "lighter"?

    Anyway, I think Kim has nice features whether it's with or without makeup.
