FOTD: Kim Kardashian Inspired

I know, there's no need to tell me, Kim K and I look nothing whatsoever alike etc etc :) I wish though... Anyways, this look is purely inspired by the beautiful Mizz Kardashian. I saw a make-up tutorial where she used MAC Contrast eyeshadow and MAC Naked pigment. I don't have Naked but, I do have Contrast which I have never used and felt really encouraged to have a play around with it! Apologies for the wet hair/ballerina bun!

Face: Neutrogena Multi-Defense Daily Moisturiser, MAC Prep+Prime Skin, MAC Studio Sculpt in NC15, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light.

Cheeks: MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze as contour, MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle as highlight and MAC Blush in Dame.

Eyes:  MAC Prep+Prime Eye, MAC Brule mixed with MAC Gesso and MAC Mylar on lid and as highlight, MAC Contrast in crease, outer corner and smoked along lower lashes, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack on upper lashline, MAC Eye Kohl in Fascinating on waterline and MAC False Lashes Mascara.

Eyeshadows (L-R): Gesso, Mylar, Brule, Contrast.
Painterly Paint Pot.
Blacktrack Fluidline.
Dame Blush.
Eyebrows: MAC Brow Pencil in Fling, Essence Brow Gel.

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Honeylove (Matte), MAC Dazzleglass in Girl's Delight.

The eyes are pretty simple to do; you pack the light colours on the lid and the dark in the crease, adding more to the outer corner. Then, taking what's left on your brush, bring the dark colour down lower that you usually would at the lower lashline for a really dramatic smokey eye. You can see the colours and this technique better in the pictures with no flash, even though they are grainy.

No Flash


This technique is also really excellent for glasses-wearers like myself as it's a lot bolder and thus stands out under and above frames.
