First things first, you’ll need to prep the skin with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer. Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream ($35.99) helps lock in moisture since it’s formulated with 30 percent hyaluronic acid, which keeps skin supple and plump for 72 hours. You can choose to wear a primer on top or skip it completely like Kim does.

When it comes to foundation, use one that gives a radiant finish like Glo Skin Beauty’s Luminous Liquid Foundation ($47.99). This lightweight mineral foundation is infused with both diamond powder and green tea extract to make it look like you’re glowing from within. Apply some of the foundation on your neck as well so there’s no harsh line. Dab the product into the skin with a KKW-approved BeautyBlender ($15.99) sponge that’s been dampened for the most flawless streak-free finish.

Complete the base by applying Jane Iredale’s Active Light Under Eye Concealer ($24.99) under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose and the cupid’s bow to brighten up your face. The concealer also works as a highlighter so it creates a soft-focused effect that will amp up the glow.

Lightly dust Karin Herzog’s Egyptian Earth Finishing Powder ($35.99) over the t-zone to set the base. The powder evens and illuminates the skin, providing it with a long-lasting radiant finish. Now time to bake in true Kardashian fashion with BareMinerals Barepro Contour Face Shaping Trio ($30.99). Apply the lightest color in the areas you want to be highlighted—so under the eyes and on the middle of the nose, chin, and forehead. Let it sit on your face for a few minutes, then dust it off. Use the medium color to bronze the skin and the darkest color to contour.

Once you’re done, bring some color back into your face with
Jane Iredale’s In Touch Cream Blush ($17.99). Use your fingers to apply the product onto your cheek and then blend it in with the BeautyBlender. The creamy formula blends effortlessly into your skin—not to mention it also smells like chocolate.

 
Then glide BareMinerals Highlighter Stick ($18.99) on the highest part of your cheekbones. This oil-free highlighter is infused with Mineral Moonbeam Essence that mimics how light reflects off crystals, which gives your cheeks an ethereal, multidimensional look. Feel free to also dab some on your cupid’s bow and tip of the nose if you love the shine. To make your eyes look bigger and brighter, apply Jane Iredale’s Eye Highlighter Pencil ($11.99) along the inner corner, waterline, and brow bone. And voilà, you’re ready to keep up with the Kardashians all summer long.

Tutorial Tuesday – Contouring 101

Contouring is a beautiful thing. Contouring & highlighting can make a face with hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and an uneven canvas appear picture-perfect. Below is a highlighting & contouring map.

Starting with a clean canvas, apply your regular foundation as a base. Next, bronze the spots in the first image below. These include your temples, the outer edges of your nose, and beneath your cheekbones down to your jaw line. In order to find the right spot, suck your cheeks into the perfect duck face and start at the indentation. Next, use a highlighter to swipe down the center of your nose, apply in a triangle underneath each eye, and in a triangle between the eyebrows on the forehead. See the picture below for exact placement. The third image shows the combined highlighted & contoured face. Finish with a clean, fluffy blender brush with bronzer to blend it all in. You will be amazed at the transformation!
