Well, we’ve done our research and found the few key products you’ll need to create a fresh, luminous glow that would even impress the highlight and contour queen herself, Kim Kardashian West.

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.

The Skincare Products Celebrities Swear By

It’s no secret that one of the perks of being a celebrity is receiving a ton of free products. From skin creams to masks, celebrities probably have a huge array of luxury items to choose from. But have you ever wondered what they actually use in their routine? We’ve discovered five celebrity favorites you can incorporate into your own skincare regimen that surprisingly won’t break the bank. Getting red-carpet skin is easier than you might think!

1.Cleanser

Everyone needs a good cleanser on hand, especially actresses who have makeup caked on their face all day long for filming. Lea Michele already knows this quite well, which is why she uses iS Clinical Cleansing Complex ($31.89). This gentle, yet clarifying cleanser works double duty as it gets rid of pore-clogging gunk with salicylic acid while also healing skin damage with three types of vitamins. Michele told InStyle she uses this cleanser because it “takes off everything without being too harsh.” It’s no wonder her skin is so Glee-fully clear.

2.Cleansing Brush

If you feel like you’re not getting a deep enough clean, it’s time to bring in a face brush. The Clarisonic Mia Fit Sonic cleansing device ($146.99) is a game-changer: It removes up to six times more makeup and debris than cleansing with your hands alone. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley said in an interview with Byrdie that one of her favorite things to use is the Clarisonic since “it’s great for really, really cleaning the skin of any makeup, impurities, or any dirt that has built up throughout the day.” The former Victoria Secret bombshell pairs the brush with the iS Clinical Cleansing Complex.

3.Face Mask

You don’t need a $200 face mask to give yourself the Hollywood treatment—and apparently neither does Khloé Kardashian. The reality star revealed to Us Weekly that she turned to Bliss Multi-’Face’-Eted All-In-One Anti-Aging Clay Mask ($30.99) once a week to detoxify her skin, claiming that “just seven minutes a week in this mask will do your face years of good.” Packed with skin-renewing ingredients such as glycolic acid and quartz, this mask definitely has us agreeing with her! 

4.Serum

Once your skin is squeaky clean, it’s time to move on to a serum. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($159.99) is Brooke Shields’ obsession and key to making her skin look as youthful as it did back in her Blue Lagoon days. “It’s packed with antioxidants and really brightens my skin, and since I began using it, I’ve noticed a difference in my fine lines,” she told Redbook. No surprise there—this award-winning serum contains 15% pure vitamin C and ferulic acid, which effectively protects the skin from skin damage and builds up collagen

5.Sunscreen

Last, but certainly not least, every star knows how important it is to defend against the aging effects of the sun. There’s one sunscreen that keeps popping up in our celebrity radar, and that’s Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 ($25.49). Ideal for acne-prone skin, this sunscreen reduces hyperpigmentation while relieving irritation and redness caused from blemishes. A few celebrities who use this SPF include Mindy Kaling, Kourtney Kardashian, and even Zac Efron. If nothing else convinces you to wear sunscreen…do it for the love of Efron. “Wear sunscreen every day, please. No amount of sun is safe, in my opinion,” he advised Refinery29. Can’t say no to that.

Let’s Go Halvsies

It is no secret that our blow dryers and flat irons dry out our gorgeous locks! That’s why here at The Beauty Place we live and die for our hair masques, heat primers, and shine sprays. But lately we’ve come up with an even better technique. We like to call this “halvsies”. You save part of your hair from intense heat by only straightening half of it at a time!

Option 1: For pretty waves just iron halfway down from your roots. This will straighten the pieces around your face and head, but leave you with a natural look. The best part? Your hair iron will never touch your sensitive tips, therefore lessening the likelihood of breakage, and dry, split-ends.

Option 2: For lots of body only straighten the bottom half of your hair starting about 3 inches away from your scalp, depending on your length. The best part? You’ll get tons of body up top while rocking silky, straight hair on the bottom!
