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.

FULLER LIPS

Kylie Jenner’s lips have been a popular topic in the Instagram world and beauty world. Plastic surgery or not, there is a makeup trick that allows your lips to look fuller and unlike the rule in kindergarten where you’re supposed to color inside the lines, this one requires coloring outside the lines.

The Essentials:

  • Concealer
  • Lip liner
  • Lipstick
  • Gloss (if desired)

Begin by using the concealer. Apply it to the center of your lips to brighten the area. This helps to make it look fuller. Apply it to the edge of your lip line and blend the top edges up onto your skin.

Use a freshly sharpened lip liner (your color of choice) and apply it right on top of your natural lip line but leave the center of the bottom lip without liner. Exaggerate the liner slightly by feathering the color in a bit.

Blend it all together using the preferred lipstick color. For better blending, it’s suggested to use a lip brush.

If you would like to use lip gloss, add a light-colored gloss that has hints of shimmer to the center of of your top and bottom lips.

All done! We suggest picking mauve colors like the color Kylie Jenner is wearing in the picture or mauve-like nudes. These shades help give the appearance of fuller lips with this concealer and lip liner tip.
