If we had to guess one woman who would have their makeup artist on standby every single day, Kim Kardashian would be the most likely choice. And why wouldn’t she? If we had access to some of the world’s best makeup artists too, there’s a good chance we’d call upon our glam squad every single day, even if we were only heading out for a quick trip to the shops.
However it turns out that the reality star does actually take time out of her day to blend her own foundation. Proving she knows a thing or two about applying her own makeup, Kim shared a video on her app detailing her 10(ish)-step daily makeup routine.
Side note: you have to pay to access her website but one user posted Kim’s video on YouTube, which you can watch below.
The look certainly isn’t low-key and includes a whole array of products (she names 11 in the video) but the best thing? Quite a few of her favourite products are pharmacy available!
Here are six of the superstar products she can’t live without, which we can actually get our hands on here in Australia.
#1 / Neutrogena Night Calming Cleansing Towelettes
Kim has professed her love for these Neutrogena face wipes before and it seems as though she’s still a fan. She started off her makeup routine by saying, “I always wash my face the night before and in the morning, but sometimes I will also use these Neutrogena Face Wipes right before I apply my makeup. These are my favourite.”
#2 / Benefit High Beam Liquid Highlighter
Before applying her foundation, Kim dabbed Benefit High Beam Liquid Highlighter across the high points of her face. She suggests blending the product in your hand before applying it to your face to ensure you achieve an even glow.
#3 / Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda Tinted Cream
To start off her makeup base, Kim applied a shimmery base all over for some serious glow before applying a layer of the Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda Tinted Cream. “I still use Giorgio Armani’s Shaping Cream Foundation. I’m seriously obsessed and was so sad when they discontinued it. Instead, you guys can try this one – it’s still amazing!” she said. After her base was applied, Kim said, “I will usually blend it over my lips too.”
#4 / Make Up For Ever Full Coverage Concealer
To achieve a flawless and perfected base, Kim likes to layer this creamy Make Up For Ever concealer on top of the Kryolan Dermacolor Concealer, which is a dry formula, for a full coverage and dewy look.
#5 / Beautyblender
The Beautyblender has become a staple makeup sponge in recent years and it appears as though Kim has also jumped on the bandwagon. She uses the sponge to blend out her base products and suggests wetting it before use for the best results.
#6 / Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
Because one highlighter clearly isn’t enough for the queen of makeup, Kim finished off her look by applying Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector on top of her concealer for a radiant and glowing result.
