I love this look that Kim is sporting. Her lips are so perfect and untouchable. They’re so shiny, red and well lush. I love a red lip and I typically wear a full coverage, super pigmented matte finish. But, when I want something a little more lively, I recreate this drop dead gorgeous look.

First, apply foundation and concealer where needed. I suggest Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation and Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge. Lightly dust face with a large fluffy brush with loose powder such as Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil. Fill in brows with a brow pencil such as Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette for the color of Kim’s. Brush brows into place with the spoolie on the end of the pencil. If your brows are really unruly and won’t stay in place use a brow taming gel such as Anastasia Brow Gel in Clear. Apply concealer to lid area to use as a base. Dust a nude, skintone shadow over the lid such as the lightest shade in Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Buttered Bronze. Next, blend the darker shade from the lashline to the crease. Take a small brush and lightly “line” the bottom lashes with the darker shade from the duo, creating a ring around the eye. Line the top lashline with Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Brown Sugar which is a basic warm brown. Curl lashes for lift. Coat lashes with a black mascara such as Lancome Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara. Layer mascara until you get your achieved look. Apply a nude pink blush to the apples of cheeks with something like Clinique Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Cupid. This look is all about the lips. Since you’ll be using a glossy shade, line lips with a red lipliner such as NARS Lip Liner in Jungle Red. Line around the natural contours of your lips. Coat lips with a glossy, full coverage lipstick such as Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Lipstick in Ondine which is the most perfect full coverage, super glossy blood red. I like to finish with a Q-Tip ran around the lip line for a perfectly chiseled look just like Kim’s. I’d top off with a spritz of the ultra sensual fragrance of Guerlain Samsara EDT. Now your ready to turn some heads. What I love about this look is that it looks amazing on both blondes and brunettes.
