Beauty Expert Tries Kim Kardashian's $357 Everyday Makeup Tutorial | Allure

hey everyone its Michelle Lee editor-in-chief of the Laura today I’m gonna be doing a really good everyday makeup look that I saw on Kim Kardashian that Mario did on her and they called the shimmer and shine look so let’s go as I’ve started I’ve actually got Foundation and a little bit of powder and I’ve done a brow already what I’m gonna do that I saw Mario do first was if you don’t want to go ahead and start with an eyeshadow primer what he did was he took some Laura Mercier translucent powder and I’ve already put some foundation on my eyelids but I’m just gonna go ahead and powder those as well just to kind of prime those for some shadow going on just a light dusting okay so let’s just start with a brown eyeliner just on the top here and I’m just going to wiggle this into my lashline I’m gonna go ahead and do both of these these are pretty messy right now but I’m gonna go ahead and smudge them out with a brush okay grab a brush here just to smudge that okay so I just want to create like a really nice diffused look so I’m just going to smudge that really nicely okay then I’m gonna go over this with some color and I’m gonna grab my tartlet toasted palette so the one that Mario used in their video was actually has sold out palette which we of course can’t get our hands on anymore so I’m just gonna go ahead and go in with some of these colors from Tarte I’m gonna mix them together and just go over that color just to set it and add a little bit more color to it here’s another one just to smudge that out a bit more and then in Mario and Kim’s video they actually used a highlighter a gold highlighter but since the start palette is so good anyway I honestly I’m just going to take one of these bronzy shades and mix it with a little bit of the gold and just go over that which is going to add that nice shimmer and shine that they were talking about so if you look at Kim’s eyes Kim has very a very very defined crease as you notice on my eyes I have no crease so when Mario was doing Kamen’s eyes they talked about defining the crease with a darker color I am NOT gonna do that though I think the unmonitored eyes like mine what looks a little bit better is someone was just telling me yesterday your eyes should be a sunset and not a parfait so I think with mine what I like to do is create sort of like a an ombre look so I’m gonna go in with these slightly darker shades and just go in to create a little bit more of an ombre and especially defining that outer corner

and don’t worry about building it up if you want to take a step back take a look at yourself in different light sometimes it’s good just to see have I gotten too much do I want to build up remember it’s always easier to build up than to take away okay I may be doing these a little bit out of order but Mario did he also use some different products but I’m going to choose a couple of different things let’s see so on the under eye I think he did another brown pencil that I’m gonna smudge out so go ahead and just define that whole lower lashline and then repeat I’m gonna go ahead and take a brush and just smudge that so it’s not so defined we don’t necessarily want that 90s heavily lined look I’m smudge that okay and then let’s see we’ve got this Becca Lite shifter brightening concealer this is a great one I love this little spongy on the end which makes it really easy to apply I’m just gonna go ahead and put that under my eyes to brighten so I take a Beauty Blender which has been dampened already just to blend that in that’s gonna help just open up your eyes and then also like Mario did he and Kim have been notorious for starting and really popularizing a lot of contouring trends they obviously didn’t create it but they really did make the Instagram look really popular he also took this concealer highlighter and put it onto the bridge of her nose as well just to add a little bit more definition there okay so like I said I think Mario and Kim have been very known for doing a lot of contour I am not typically a big contour person every single day so I’m gonna try this I’m a little bit nervous about it because I’m definitely not Mario but so this is the Tom Ford shade and illuminate palette and this has a highlighter and also a contour on it so like Mario did on Kim what he did was he just sort of tapped a brush into the contour and then defined the jawline and tapping in as opposed to swiping it or rubbing because you don’t want to take your foundation off and this is just going to give you a nice defined jaw and eye right now as you can see I’m nine months pregnant so I can use a nice defined jaw right now just a little bit more I tend to go pretty light on these things even though I probably should go a little bit heavier but I’m always like I said a little bit nervous about it looking too severe so again you can always add rather than take away and then putting it up on to the hairline as well because it’s going to help to define the shape of your face I’m just patting it in with this brush and so what we want to do because this is a cream contour is we want to take a little bit more of that powder and just

set it because we’re going to do another bronzer over the top just fluffy brush I’m just gonna lightly powder that and so the finished look of this is going to be really dewy we don’t want to matte out the entire face we just want to make sure that we’re setting some of that cream so that we don’t take it off in our next steps okay so like Mario did I’m gonna be doing a bronzer next so I’ve got this great Sigma soft angled contour brush and I am going to take let’s see I’ve got this fancy one what you want to do with bronzer is they have some that have some shimmer I like to use one that is just matte I think it adds something kind of nice I’m just gonna go over some of those areas that I did with the cream to define a little bit more in the Mario and Kim video they used I think probably up three or four different bronzers and contours which I’m not doing today just cuz I like to simplify a little bit but I think it’s a really interesting technique which obviously has worked for them and so a lot of times with bronzers you think about where the Sun would hit your face if you use it as a contour though you can also think about doing a shape of a three like this that you go along the forehead along the contour of your cheekbone and then under the jaw which is kind of the thing that I’m doing today okay and then I am going to take a peachy blush just to could mess up a little bit of color this is bare minerals Jen nude and peachy keen it’s actually one of my blushes from home which I really like so I didn’t tap that out and just on your cheeks right here add a little bit of color I find that blush is one of those things where it’s really easy to leave the house with a little too much on so I liked it before I leave check myself in a different mirror just to make sure I don’t look completely crazy and I feel like I went a little bit too severe on this one side so it’s really easy also just take a Beauty Blender again damp and just kind of pad that out a little bit I am going to powder my t-zone again just to make sure that when you are adding highlight you want to make sure that you are matted out in certain places where you get oily during the day and that typically is around the node it’s also a little bit on the forehead that way when you do highlight you make sure that those parts are standing out while the rest of it looks a bit more matte okay so the other thing that Mario did was he took another bronzer contour and he started to softly contour kim’s nose I will readily admit I am not good at contouring my nose I like to go very light on this type of thing which is totally fine because honestly the whole like really harsh contour of the nose is kind of not so cute anymore so I take a fluffy brush and I’m gonna take this bronzer by lawless and I’m just gonna very lightly kind of contour here but again I’m not going for anything too stripey just making sure that you’re really blending that out too because you don’t want people seeing the makeup here okay and then one of the most fun parts for me is really about the highlighter so I’ve got two here I’ve got this becca one and also this revlon i’m actually

going to use the revlon on my cheekbones brush i use use this brush and just on the tops of my cheeks here i’m just gonna go ahead and this is like a really beautiful gold color tap that out and you just want to put that on the tops of your cheekbones i do usually do a little bit right here as well cuz when the light hits its really pretty a little bit more here on the side I love watching tutorials because I feel like I always pick up something but it’s always just about like not following it exactly that you really need to adapt it to your own face like I said my face is totally not like Kim’s my coloring is different my eyes are different so I can pick up a lot of different tips and the overall look without necessarily copying it exactly and I think it’s also important to look at your own makeup kit too it’s totally not necessary to use the exact same products that we have here you have to remember that especially as beauty editors we get everything sent to us for free which I completely understand not everybody has a situation I could certainly pick drugstore options for everything there are great dupes for a lot of different things nowadays okay so I’m going to do that and then I’m gonna use this other Becca one which I also love this is another one of my favorites from home I’m gonna use that on a couple of different places on my face and I’m actually gonna take this eyeshadow brush and I’m gonna put that and I use that to define the bridge of my nose I’m also gonna put it right here on my Cupid’s bow again keeping in mind where the light would hit you a little bit on my chin I’m very extra when it comes to highlighter I typically will layer a couple ones every single day usually what I’ll do is I’ll use a cream highlighter first and then a powder over because I like a very extreme highlight look the reason that I’m using two today is I have them and also the Revlon one is a little bit more bronzy while the Becca one is a little bit more light golden I like the light gold on my cheeks sometimes is a little too extreme a little bit too light so which is why I went for the Revlon one on cheeks so I’m also going to take that and it’s really nice to define your brow bone right here I’m just gonna put a little tiny bit right there and then as a final step for eyes with eye shadow it’s also very very pretty to do a little bit of a highlight in the inner corners so I’m gonna find a color here this one called candle looks perfect I’m just gonna dip my brush on there and do a little bit into the inner corner which makes your eyes look like they I really lit up so I’ve got some balm already but I’m gonna use this beauty counter lip conditioner which I really love you can take a q-tip or I used my nail which whatever and that’s gonna just help plump up your lips and prepare them I love this one cuz it tastes sort of minty and also it’s nice and slippery and then I am going to use this Charlotte Tilbury lip sheet the shade of this one is pillow talk and then the lip stick is also a pillow top and just push that around a little bit and I’m gonna start to line my lips so this is sort of a nice rosy pink nude shade which really looks somewhat similar to my natural lip shade and on a more natural look like this it’s really nice to go for something that matches your lip there’s a little bit more pumped up so I know a lot of people like to over line their lips I like to go a little tiny bit over but not too much nicely lined and then I’m gonna go in with the lipstick it could use a lip brush but I probably will just do it straight from the tube and as you can see it’s a really pretty shade

okay so the other thing that Mario worked on was he had this lipgloss that had little blue flecks in it we do not have that one but I have this great Mac what is the Sun this was mac lipglass and so when you put that over anything it’s gonna make it really nice and glossy a big trend right now is vinyl lips so this kind of helps to create a similar look okay finally lashes so in the video with Mario he used a shadow stick it was a shadow cream stick I actually have a bunch of these and they’re fantastic I didn’t use one today because I went for smudging the eyeliner instead which is perfectly acceptable whatever works for you guys okay next up I’m going to curl my lashes and so even though Kim and Mario didn’t do a fake lash Kim’s got either naturally long lashes or she has lash extensions because her lashes are crazy long so I am going to do fake lashes today I’ve got this adhesive and also these are I think these are Del one tens these lashes I’ve actually cut these already so that they fit my eyes and I’m going to take a strip of these I haven’t done mascara yet because I’m going to do mascara at the end I find that because my natural lashes are so itsy-bitsy and straight and short I like these one tens because they don’t look too too extreme on me so I’m using a black glue because it dries nicely and doesn’t leave any kind of white residue on my eyes I also want to make sure that when I’m doing the glue that I get enough on the ends because especially on the inner corner that’s where it tends to fall off of me first okay so always what you want to do when you’ve put on some lash glue is let it set for about 30 seconds first if you try and do it when it’s too wet you’re gonna have problems because it’s just gonna fall straight off so if you let it rest for a little bit first then it gets a little bit tacky and you’ll have a better chance of making this work okay I’m nervous about doing this I just hope you know as many times as I’ve done a last trip I’m not great at doing it myself it does take a lot of practice and especially when you are kind of looking in a new mirror it’s trying to figure out how do I get this on the right way so bear with me hopefully this works out sometimes it’s easier also without the tweezers just to come on yourself it’s your fingers success okay and I’m just gonna hold in there a little bit and make sure that they’re on you don’t want to necessarily open your eyes too quickly because it’s gonna get all sticky and then stick to your eyelid and nobody wants that so once those are in I’ll do mascara so that I really set my other lashes into these so you don’t really see too much of a difference and just make sure that those are really in there sometimes it’s easy to kind of make a mistake and your lashes are stuck it’s not actually stuck on your skin it’s stuck more on your lashes you want to make sure that you’re kind of pushing the strip in there so you’ve got the strip stuck to your skin okay I’m gonna take the other side and do those and do the glue and then again let this get a little bit tacky if I could wear fake lashes every single day I would totally do it I like I said I’m just not super fantastic at doing it every day so I think it would be a bit of a chore I know plenty of other people who have gotten lash extensions – and you look fantastic I’m

just too nervous about doing it though a little bit longer I feel like always everyone has an one eye that’s easier than the other my right eye is always easier my left eye is the tricky one so we’ll see how this one goes okay let’s do this you know what it is it’s that when you’re looking in the mirror it’s a little bit harder to get that view right down where it belongs and then make sure this one is stuck to the eyelid properly don’t stick yourself in the eye with the tweezers okay proud of myself okay so you’re gonna let those dry a little bit and then when we’re done we’re gonna do some mascara just again to make sure that your actual eyelashes and the fake lashes look like one you don’t want to see two layers of them because it’s not cute and so today I’m using one of my absolute favorite mascaras this is Maybelline total temptation waterproof for anyone like me who’s got short straight lashes that need to hold a curl waterproof mascara for whatever reason works so much better than other mascara Maybelline also makes such great formulas I’m crazy about a ton of theirs okay so I’m gonna go ahead and do this mascara right now and I don’t need a lot because these lashes are gonna look pretty extreme on me it’s again more so I get the bottom lashes or not the bottom lashes like my actual lashes that are underneath the fake ones to look like they are blended in and that they hold a curl as well that by the end of the day they my real lashes have not fallen and so one thing that I was really upset about was in the video Mario uses this really cool tweezer ‘men tool for your lower lashes that’s sort of like a lash guide or lash guard they don’t sell that anymore what it does is it helps you protect the skin under here so whenever we’ve done these lower lashes it’s really easy to get the mascara onto your skin so because I don’t have that I’m just gonna be real careful just do a little bit of mascara on the bottom lashes here if you do get any on your skin on your under eye usually if you just wipe it really quickly it’ll go away or you can also just take a makeup wipe wrap it around your finger and just sort of catch any of the fallout there okay let’s see and then my final final step yes to really complete this dewy look I want to take this top judge dewy skin mist just again one of my absolute favorites I’m just going to do a final mist take out my clips oh I’m very doing I’m very very dewy and then I’m done I’m ready for the day all right and that is it that is my complete look I’m extremely do II right now I think also the lashes make a huge difference I feel like when you’re dealing with any professional makeup artist they have so many different tricks in their toolkit and a lot of times they use way more complexion products that I would probably use on the daily basis again I am NOT a professional makeup artist so I’m not great at doing contour and tons of bronzer and everything else in my own personal life if I were to do maybe a little bit of bronzer and a little bit of blush that’s probably it but because I’m trying to really recreate this look I used a lot more complexion products than I probably normally would which is fun especially if you are going out for a night or something just to sort of play with your look and try something different I hope you guys enjoyed it see you next time you
