Kim Kardashian is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world. With her dark, sultry beauty, she definitely knows how to wear a face of makeup, a high fashion outfit and a trendy hairstyle in a way to looks super chic, but completely confident all at the same time. While you may never get to marry a rapper and have your own mega mansion, that doesn’t mean that you can’t follow these steps to doing your make up like the woman herself.


When you’re trying to set up your routine like a Kardashian you need to remember – do your make up, then your hair. Keeping your hair out of your face during your make up routine is important, and you also won’t have to worry about finishing your hair, only to have to retouch it when your hair gets messed up after your make up routine. This may seem like a really small step, but it’s actually very important if you want that overall look.


A lot of women use a primer underneath their makeup, but when you’re goal is to look like Kim, you should actually opt for an emollient moisturizer instead. This then needs to be applied to your chest, neck and face area. This will moisturize your skin and put it in a great place to wear your makeup evenly, but it also has the added benefit of not creating a slick layer between your makeup and your skin, which can make it wipe off more easily when you’re using a primer first.


Do you generally only apply foundation to your face? Get ready to put it pretty much everywhere. This includes your ears, legs and feet! One thing about Kim is that her skin tone is really even, and in order to ensure that, her makeup artists will often put foundation in some of these uncommon places. Not interested in putting it absolutely everywhere? Then at least make sure you put it on your ears, otherwise they’ll be red in photos.


Many women don’t think about their eyebrows when it comes to their make up routine, but this is a huge mistake for those that want to look like Kim Kardashian. Her makeup artists spend a lot of time perfecting her brows and giving them an ombre effect – meaning that they fade in color over the length of her eyebrows. In order to do your own, take an eyebrow pencil and fill the outside corners, then switch to a lighter pencil and then move inwards, which will give you that particular effect.


Don’t worry too much about being 100% perfect with Kim’s entire routine. Her makeup artists – that’s right multiple! – spend hours upon hours working on her face. So unless you’ve got the time and the budget, just follow these tips and do the best you can!
