Kim Kardashian makeup guide

Get Kim's flawless and pretty look

Kim Kardashian is always looking fresh and well put together, and although it's not obvious, I think credit is partly due to her makeup. I know a lot of people are interested in the products she uses and how she creates her look, so here is a mini-guide for those interested. Kim uses mainly MAC, one of the cheaper higher-end brands, but if that's too expensive, there are dupes for pretty much every MAC product, so just use what you have and what you like!

Kim uses the Intuit Photo Shoot face primer after having moisturized her face and then uses the Cle De Peau concealer stick in the colour Ocher. Alternatively she uses MAC's Studio Sculpt concealer in NW25. For foundation, she uses the Make Up Forever liquid foundation, mixing colours No. 5 and No. 4 with the MAC 180 buffer brush. In the winter, she uses colour No. 3. She uses MAC's Select Moisturecover in shade NW30. To set the foundation, she uses a powder brush to lightly brush on MAC's Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC30 and then uses NW45 for a more tanned look.

Kim uses MAC's Sheertone blush in Gingerly and then MAC's Cheek blush. She also likes using cream blushes.

First she primes her eye using the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and her choice of eyeshadow depends on the look she's going for. For black smoky, Carbon, for grey smoky, Knight Divine, for brown smoky, Embark and for a fresh shimmery look, Tan pigment (all by MAC). She also enjoys playing with colour, using her Make Up Forever pigments. For eyeliner she uses the Stila black pencil. For mascara, she coats on the MAC Zoom mascara and then uses Lancome Hypnose on top, using a separator brush to separate her lashes.

She normally uses MAC Lipliner in Stripdown and then a MAC lipstick in Angel and NARS Turkish Delight lipgloss on top. For a nude look, she uses MAC Subculture lipliner first, and then wears NARS Belle De Jour lipstick.
