Here’s exactly how Kim Kardashian does her own make-up
Step 1: Use a make-up wipe
Kim Kardashian gets frequent requests from fans to post her make-up routine, apparently, and she ‘finally did it!’ while in Toronto for Kanye West’s ‘Saint Pablo’ tour.
In a nine-minute video that she posted to her site and on YouTube, Kim goes through the ‘quick’ version of the make-up routine she does when she’s on the road. From her hotel bathroom, with cameos from Kanye and BFF Jonathan Cheban, Kim goes from bare-faced to everyday glam.
Kim first takes a Neutrogena make-up wipe to her almost-bare face. ‘I forgot my face wash but I already started my eye make-up so I’m going to be super sloppy and just use a Neutrogena…make-up wipe,’ Kim says. (Real.)
She hydrates her skin with a $240 jar of La Mer Perfecting Treatment and follows with ‘Giorgio Armani sheer shimmer stuff,’ or Giorgio Armani Shimmer Sheer. ‘This just adds shimmer under the foundation,’ she says. ‘Cause I just love a little extra glow.’
Kim puts up her hair to get it out of her face and spends a second debating which foundation to put on—’Do I use a Chanel foundation or an Armani?’ She ultimately settles on the Armani. Here are some of our favourite lines from her monologue:
- ‘Does anyone else put foundation all over their lips?’
- ‘Always make sure to get the back of your neck.’
- ‘Do you guys listen to music when you get ready?’
- ‘I love putting my brushes away as we go.’
Even when she only has a few minutes, Kim contours. ‘You gotta go in the hairline a little bit,’ she says. ‘Makes your forehead look smaller too.’
She bakes her make-up using yellow and pink powders.
Kim does her eyes, applying layers of mascara, contouring her lids, filling in her brows, and cleaning up her shadow. She also says she can’t ever do her make-up right in front of a guy because it’s too stressful.
Kim moves on to her lips and uses little sister Kylie’s Lip Kit in ‘Candy K’ along with a few other products. Kanye comes by the bathroom and she asks him how he likes it. ‘It looks so pretty! I love that!’ So supportive.
She shows off her finished look in selfie mode and finds some flaws with her make-up. ‘Shit, I shoulda winged that liner a little bit more,’ she says. ‘Oh well.’
