Kim looked the cat that got the gleam

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS -

It’s not like Kim Kar­dashian to send the in­ter­net in melt­down ... much!

As usual Ms K whipped so­cial me­dia into a frenzy when she stepped out at this year’s Met Gala.

Her shim­mer­ing, fig­ure hug­ging golden gown cer­tainly grabbed the at­ten­tion at the Heav­enly Bod­ies themed event.

I loved the dress and the high pony tail and her makeup look was ev­ery­where the fol­low­ing day, with girls all over the world des­per­ate to recre­ate it.

Shhh .. say it qui­etly. It wasn’t my favourite makeup look of Kim’s –I liked it, but didn’t love it. I found it heavy but there’s no deny­ing it was very strik­ing.

So with that in mind I have de­cided to walk you through a more sum­mery, softer ver­sion of what was a bold look.

In­stead of full cov­er­age, I’m go­ing for a beau­ti­ful, dewy tinted mois­turiser in­stead.

For the base use Les Beiges sheer healthy glow tinted mois­turiser by Chanel.

It’s got just enough cov­er­age to even out your com­plex­ion, but your own skin will shine through.

Buff this on us­ing a chunky rounded foun­da­tion brush.

For un­der eyes, try a new prod­uct from Ben­e­fit –Boi-ing bright­en­ing con­cealer. A lit­tle goes a long way and it gives amaz­ing cov­er­age with­out dry­ing the un­der eye area.

Get your sum­mery glow us­ing a bronzer. I love Bobbi Brown as their range of shades and tex­ture is per­fect. You can also ap­ply this to lightly con­tour the cheeks.

De­fine the brows, but not too much, keep them nat­u­ral but en­hance the arch.

Once you’ve primed the eye area, use a warm toned shadow in the crease and outer cor­ners of the eyes. There is so much choice out there right now when it comes to eye shadow pal­ettes so it re­ally de­pends on your bud­get.

The Ur­ban De­cay Naked Heat Pal­ette is amaz­ing for this look!

Use a large blend­ing brush to get a re­ally soft blended look.

Liner was the main fo­cal point of Kim’s look – it’s a real cat eye look.

Us­ing a black gel liner and a thin liner brush, trace the en­tire eye area with the gel right into the in­ner cor­ners of the eye to meet in a point.

Don’t try to keep a straight line, in­stead do lit­tle strokes to build up the line as it’s so much eas­ier.

I thought Kim’s lashes were just too much. In­stead I love Ardell’s demi wispies to com­plete the look.

Last, but not least, is her fa­mous pout and her sig­na­ture nude lip. MAC Vel­vet Teddy or Kinda Sexy are per­fect for the job.

So there you have it, a slightly toned down ver­sion rocked by Ms K her­self ... now go try break the in­ter­net!
