Kim Kardashian Inspired Makeup Look

Whenever I feel stressed or panicked I always find myself sitting in front of my mirror, makeup sprawled out all around me, practicing different looks. I simply find a picture on google that I think looks interesting or challenging and attempt (attempt being the key word here) to imitate the look as best I can.

I found an image on google that uses mainly the technique of smudging eyeliner (I used gel eyeliner) in the crease and also in the outer corner of the eye, and to achieve the sharp and clear line on the outer corner of my eyes I did the classic sticky tape trick. I didn't actually take step by step pictures because my expectations of it being successful weren't high, however I wish I did after seeing the outcome!

I'm really happy with how this turned out. My sister said, 'it looks a lot like Kim Kardashian!' and I think she's quite right.

What's on my face: 

- Loreal True Match foundation in "N2 Vanilla" 
- Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in "Ivory"
- MAC transparent powder 
- Benefit hoola bronzer 
- MAC powder blush in "Pinch Me"
- MAC eyeshadow in "Mystery" to fill in my eyebrows 
- MAC clear brow gel 
- MAC prep+prime eye base in "light" 
- Using my Nude 'tude palette by theBalm I used: Sassy, Snobby, Sleek and Serious 
- Maybelline gel eyeliner in "Blackest Black" 
- theBalm liquid black eyeliner 
- Bourjois waterproof black clubbing eyeliner pencil 
- Maybelline the falsies mascara in "Black"
- MAC matte lipstick in "Please Me" 

What do you guys think of this look? I reckon it'd be totally wearable for a night out or even a formal event. I might also do a tutorial on YouTube if any of you are interested? Let me know :)

  1. You look gorgeous! I love the eyeshadow- what did you use to keep the line so neat?!


    1. Thankyou love! I used a piece of sticky tape along the side of my eye and then removed it once I was finished, creating a crisp line. I might actually do a tutorial because it's easier to explain in a video! x

  2. So beautiful! Perfect liner and smudging! X

  3. Love the eyeshadow - Definitely going to have to go out and purchase that eye palette now! xxxx

  4. This is a really well done look! Such a nice clean line (sticky tape really does work every time! Hah)
    The makeup really suits you, it really goes with your colouring! This is the kind of look that i always love and want to wear.. but if i wore that it would be pretty full on as i am very fair and blonde haha. Anyway i'm glad someone gets to wear it!

    1. Thankyou dear! Sneakily I have fake tan and a darker shade of foundation on in these pictures so I understand your struggle! I'm not sure I'd be able to pull it off in my natural skin tone but knowing me, I'd probably give it a go anyway haha. xx
