I normally don’t flip out over celebrity makeup, to be honest, it’s quite unchallenging most of the time and basic. I do like fun new lip shades and bright blushes, like the stunning coral blush used on Kim Kardashian at the recent Cosmetic Executive Women Awards. Not only does this coral blush match her dress perfectly, but it plays well with the neutral lip color and out-of-this-world lashes she’s got going on!
Have I ever mentioned how much I adore coral? I guess that is why this post by Glamour.com caught my eye. I love the dress, the lashes, the everything. I am SO glad that Glamour actually posted the products that were used and not the old ” this looks like they used ” trick. I read through some of the comments about the look and a lot of ladies were saying they thought this look was overly made-up and too much for something they would wear everyday.. maybe THAT is why I love it so much! =) Some of these product names will surprise you!
Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic created this look:
Mario used the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($58, available in 14 shades), blended with a bit of moisturizer, and used La Mer Radiant concealer ($65, avail. in 3 shades) under her eyes. He then set her face with Shu Uemura loose powder ($39).
Mario swept Giella Eye M Glam highlighter ($36) (Mario’s own product!) on Kim’s lids and on the inner corners of her eyes to brighten and open them up, then used a touch on the brow bone. He filled in her brows with MAC Eye Brows pencil in Lingering and lined her top lids with Lancome Artliner ($29), extending it out and up. He then applied Sephora Collection Flashy Liner in Flashy Brown ($8 each, these seem just like Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils) on the inner rim of her eyes and smudged a bit along the lash line. Mario then finished the look by curling her lashes and applying two coats of black Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara on top and bottom.
He applied JK Jemma Kidd Sheer Vanity Gloss and Glaze in Belle de Jour ($16 at Target).
Completely gorgeous, right? I have none of the products listed above.. and I am curious to try the Armani foundation and La Mer concealer. Will you try this look for yourself?
