A Kim Kardashian-esque look

I don't know if it's just me, but as much as I love makeup, I always prefer doing it on other people rather than on myself. Unfortunately for my 13 year old sister she has become my little model. But I have to say, her face takes makeup so beautifully. I don't know if its because of her young skin or what, but when i do the exact same look on myself afterwards, it never photographs the same and I get so jealous!

We did nothing with her hair its naturally very curly, and was tied up so she took her bobble out. 

After doing makeup like this its once I look back at the pictures that I see where I went wrong. Kim Kardashian never seems to wear very heavy fake lashes, but tends to opt for thin naturally long lashes as she doesnt need to put too much emphasis on her eyes as they are already very striking. From pictures I could see that she uses alot of concealer under her eyes and her trademark brown and black smokey eye look. For her lips I actually went over them with white eyeliner, followed by pink eyeshadow followed by the Benefit Lip Gloss which I posted yesterday. I absolutely love the colour on her.

Overall, I will be the first to admit that this is not one of the best looks I have done and I do not feel like I achieved the image I had in my head, but, I was still happy with the overall look and decided to share it.

I would have to say that Kim Kardashian is an Idol of mine, I do love everything about her. She does like to switch it up sometimes and goes for a 40's look and still pulls it off beautifully.

Who would you say was your makeup idol?


  1. Lovely makeup! :) Your sister is very pretty too :).. obviously gets it from her sister :) xxx

  2. kim is my make up idol too although i always love the simplicity of blake lively make up even tho its always very repetitive

    i love the lip colour, that was quite an out of the box idea with the liner and the shadow. i like this look.
