In the same tutorial from above, Kim recommended this eyeliner as an excellent way to blend the lashes in. This eyeliner sells for $7.
Kim Kardashian skin routine
Kim Kardashian is known for using some really expensive products for her face, but she often says she loves the drugstore versions too.
She keeps to a routine but changes her products all the time because she likes to try out new things.
In her most recent interview, Kim shared that she uses Dr. Lancer Cleanser, followed by a hyaluronic acid and La Mer serum. She then applies thick moisturizer – either a Guerlain or Dr. Lancer one. After that, she starts with her makeup routine.
While that used to involve 4 hours of putting the makeup on and thousands of dollars in product, she is now officially over contouring, even though she was one of the people leading the beauty charge with this trend.
Now she prefers a gentle blend between contouring and highlighting where she applies only the highlighters to certain places on the face and contours her nose.
The mentioned products are just some of the examples of what she uses, though her makeup artist said that he does use a lot of affordable products when he does her makeup.
What skin products does Kim Kardashian use?
Kim Kardashian loves trying out new products but the most essential ones she is using – and says will never give up – are in her makeup cabinet all the time.
She has a routine that she follows through no matter what. As a bonus, she sees multiple great results.
Her routine includes many serums – Dr. Barbara Hyaluronic Serum, Anti Aging Serum, La Mer Serum Essence with seaweed extract and almond oil and Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Longevity Concentrate.
She also uses many facial oils like La Mer Renewal Oil and Anastasia Hydrating oil.
She prefers products which provide long-term effect and are meant to be used for longer. However, she also says that she is not stuck up and that she loves using drugstore products equally – like those mentioned above.
Her complete makeup routine can cost up to $4500 sometimes. But, since she gave up the famous contouring, her routine costs a lot less.
Which mascara does Kim Kardashian use?
While you might think that Kardashians would use some ridiculously overpriced mascara, they actually use regular, drugstore mascara which costs $6.
In her app she recently posted that she loves the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in the color of Carbon Black. Kim said that she has been using the mascara for years and that the color is perfect for her. She also praised how it really provides a proper lash lift, no spider effect and separates each lash nicely.
Kim likes that it’s versatile – one coat for a perfect everyday look or more coats for some night time drama.
It has a thin wand which makes it easy to apply – you can even apply it without a mirror.
Kim Kardashian may not be everyone’s favorite star but she definitely knows all about beauty and what’s good for your skin – just look at her. However, until now, we thought that the products she uses are unaffordable. Now we know better and we know that the products that Kim uses we can use too – not all of them, of course, but some, surely.
