The ever-beautiful Kim Kardashian has her own makeup line, an astounding number of Instagram followers, and manages to chase around three children all while looking lovely. The woman is enviable.
Some of her glam exterior is a product of good genes, of course, she has killer cheekbones! She and her sisters have all graced the covers of magazines due to their fame and beauty. But, some of it also comes from her stellar makeup choices, and a few tips and tricks she shares to have low-maintenance beauty at your fingertips.
Kim’s cosmetic line
She wears a lot of cosmetics from her own makeup line, KKW Beauty. Kim first launched the line in 2017 with a simple crème contour and highlighting kit. Contouring her own face is one of her signature looks so it only makes sense the star would feature a kit to do the same in her own makeup line.
Now, several years later, KKW beauty features many contouring kits. But, Kim tells ENews that she certainly has a few favorite products.
“Even when I do a natural look,” she says, “I always contour. I love a good glow. I like to highlight on my cheekbone, down the center of my nose, on my cupid’s bow and under the brow bone. When I use the KKW Beauty Contour and Highlighter Kit, I switch between using the Medium and the Dark kits.”
The KKW Beauty Powder Contour Kit retails for $52.00 and can be purchased directly off the website.
She loves her own products
Kim donned her own line of cosmetics at the Met Gala to garner up interest for her unreleased line of lip products. She notes, “I always line my lips! If I don’t, I feel like my upper lip just totally disappears, lol. I normally stick with a nude lip.”
Her newest shades come out on May 10th and will likely sell out quickly as they have in the past. If you’re interested in grabbing a set, you’d better hurry. They can be picked up on KKW’s beauty website.
Kim’s 5-minute favorites
She uses her own color kits to contour her face and recommends using a brush to blend first before using a damp sponge to blend highlights in well. The girl knows her stuff, because she always looks flawless.
Based on these stunning before and after photos of what Kim looks like before her makeup routine, we definitely want what is in her makeup bag!
Glam and pricey
Of course, we don’t all have the pockets deep enough to afford the holiday beauty routine Kim shared with Vogue. After watching her apply more products than would fit in a standard bathroom vanity, we know we can’t have all of Kim’s favorite items in our own makeup bags. Her list of favorites retails at more than $600.
If we had to choose just a few we’d definitely pick up Kim’s favorite foundation. She recommends La Mer foundation which you can pick up at Sephora for a measly $120. It includes the promise of long wearability and an SPF 20 protection for your face.
She uses her own liquid concealer from KKW Beauty and we like it because it comes in so many shade combinations you’re bound to be able to find one to suit your skin tone.
Although she chooses to use a lot of products from her own line, whether she prefers them or it is just shameless self-promotion we are unsure, she still uses some tried and true products from other companies. She uses this shimmery blush from Nars Cosmeticsthat has just enough sheen to make her cheeks pop.
