The unexpected makeup step that gives Kim Kardashian glowing skin


The best thing? It’s incredibly simple

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / August 02 2017

Kim Kardashian’s makeup looks inspire thousands of online tutorials, and the recent launch of her own makeup line, KKW Beauty sold out in under 20 minutes. It’s fair to say she knows a thing or two about makeup.

That’s why when Kim took to her Snapchat to share the extra makeup step she credits for her glowing skin, we (along with the rest of the beauty world) took note.

In the Snapchat video, Kim talks through her everyday makeup steps, using her own KKW Beauty Créme Contour and Highlight Kit. And while the use of her own product isn’t surprising, the product she reached for to add a boost of radiance to her look was.

The product in question was Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, a cult-favourite spray that works to instantly hydrate the skin while adding a hit of radiance.

Instead of opting to spray the mist all over her face, Kim spritzed it onto the sponge and brush end of her Contour and Highlight Kit to make the process of blending the cream products easier.

If, like us, you suddenly feel the urge to buy a face mist, in addition to the Tatcha one Kim used, we also recommend Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Mario Badescu Facial Spray.
