"It just makes such a difference in curling your lashes and opening up that eye and giving your eye that brighter look," she told Glamour. Plus, if you curl first, you might find yourself able to leave the house without mascara—a super minimally curled lash with a subtle highlight in your inner corner is a gorgeous take on no-makeup makeup.
2. The Art of the Contour
When Kim gave a YouTube makeup makeover to Laura Brown, she sort of flawlessly executed the art of the contour. Drawing a three along the sides of Brown's face, she defined the cheekbones, temples, and jawline in one expert sweep, and then shortened and enhanced the bridge of her nose. All with bronzer.
3. The Importance of Moisturizing
Kim's gorgeous, poreless skin is the product of hard work, including a hot towel after she cleanses and a majorly healthy application of moisturizer. And all that makeup comes right off every single night. No falling asleep after a couple of cocktails for Kim Kardashian! You don't get a flawless makeup application without a well-cared for canvas.
4. Concealing Seals the Deal
Makeup artist Scott Barnes uses concealer to illuminate the high planes of Kim's face, which she posted on her Instagram.
She also told Glamour she sets her concealer immediately with finishing powder—one of the oldest tricks in the book for a long-lasting, luminous finish. You can find out more about how to contour using concealer here.
5. Hair Care is Key
When longtime Kardashian stylist Philip Wolff took to YouTube to document how he gets that gorgeous wavy hair, he extolled the virtues of using Leave-In Conditioner to keep the hair healthy. Kim's also an advocate of the intensely hydrating Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Mask. With the amount of heat styling she goes through, it's a wonder her hair stays so gorgeous.
