GET THE FACE – Kim Kardashian’s sexy, smokey eye.

 

I did this smokey-eyed look on Kim recently here in NYC for the Three Olive’s Bubble Flavored Vodka party.  Beleive it or not but this was actually the first time that I’ve done an all-black smokey eye on her, so for us, it was a different look.  When I saw the cool outfit she was going to wear, I thought it was the right time to finally do the really dark eye’s I’d been wanting to try on her.  Here’s how you can “get the face:”

Skin – I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer first.  I let her skin absorb that for a couple of minutes before applying Mat Velvet + Matyfying Foundation by Make Up For Ever.  I use this foundation from time to time.  It gives a very velvety and pore-less look to the skin.  For powder, I used very little of Subliminal Purity Mineral Based Loose Powder by Calvin Klein to set the foundation with a powder puff.

I used Dior’s DiorSkin Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer under the eyes after all of the eye makeup was complete.  (When working with black eye shadow, it will almost always fall down a bit and make a mess so clean the under eye area with a makeup wipe, then apply concealer.)

Her eyebrow’s are filled in softly with MAC’s Cork eyeshadow – with more of the focus on the outter corners of the brow.

Eyes – Apply Shu Uemuras Painting Liner Eye Liner in MBlack all over the eye lids and on the lower lash line as well. This is a long-lasting and highly pigmented black cream liner.  To set that eyeliner and blend it up and out towards the crease, I used Lorac’s Eye Shadow in Black.  The inner rim of the eye is lined with MAC’s white eye pencil in Fascinating.  Using all black on the eyes can sometimes make them appear smaller so the white pencil on the inner rim is a great trick for opening your eyes.  Finish off with two or three coats of L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

Cheeks – Apply Desire by NARS ( the perfect pink) on the apples of cheeks and blend well.  The face is framed in Casino Bronzer by NARS.

Lips – I lined her lips with MAC’s lip pencil in Subculutre and used Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Pink Protege.

GET THE FACE: Kim Kardashian, NYC to LA.

 

This look is actually very simple to recreate and doesn’t require so many products.  I did this makeup on Kim in the morning for the Pepsi Max Bullrun rally in NYC and she was able to use it later that evening in LA for the Aces and Angels Celebrity Poker Party that she hosted at the Playboy Mansion.  All it takes for your makeup to last all day and night is some powder and gloss touch ups.  Here’s how to “get the face” –

 

Skin – I started out with a primer (Smashbox photo finish primer) all over her skin.  This primer helps the makeup to last longer on the skin.  After, I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup all over the skin.  I set the foundation with Laura Mercier loose setting powder.  For concealer, I used diorskin sculp lifting smoothing concealer under the eyes and set that with Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

 

Brows –  I filled her brows with MAC’s brow pencil in Lingering, followed by a little bit of MAC’s eyeshadow in cork on the outter corners of the brows.

 

Eyes – Apply b-dazzle by GIELLA custom blend cosmetics on the brow bone and on the tear ducts (inner corner of eyes).  Use Antiqued eyeshadow by MAC all over the lid.  Blend it up to the crease and out a bit past the outter corners of the eyes.  Use antiqued shadow again along the lower lash line and blend.  On the inner rim of the eye, I used MAC’s eyeliner in fascinating.  Try Lancome’s Hypnose mascara on top and bottom lashes to finish the eyes.

 

Cheeks – To warm up the skin, I used Smashbox bronzer in Suntan Matte around the frame of the face and on the hollows of the cheeks.  For a subtle glow, I applied the Copacabana multiple by NARS on the bridge of the nose and on the cheek bones followed by Peaches blush by MAC on the apples of the cheeks. 

 

Lips are lined and filled in with the #50 lip pencil by Make Up For Ever followed by MAC lipglass in Queen Bee.

Get the Face! Kim K – Maxim Hot 100.

 

Hey guys… For the Maxim Hot 100 event, Kim wore an all while dress and the hair was pulled back so I definitely wanted to use alittle bit of color on her eyes and green is my favorite color.  I really like how this look came out on her and it photographed beautifully.  When using a color on the eyes, keep the cheeks and lips soft and pretty.  Here’s how to get the face…

Skin – Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation by Make Up For Ever in Neutral Beige.  GIELLA concealer in #2.  Set the face and under the eyes with Make Up For Ever HD translucent powder.

Eyes – Golden Olive pigment by MAC on lids.  Humid eyeshadow by MAC in the crease and blended on the lower lashine.  Electric Edge Liquid Eyeliner Marker Pen by Calvin Klein in Electric Black on the upper lid and winged out alittle on the outter corner.  GIELLA B-dazzle eyepencil on the inner corners (tear ducts) and on the inner rim of the eye.  Two coats of L’oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black, top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks – Rock and Republic contrived pressed blush in Call Me on the apples of the cheeks.  Apply Summer Affair Bronzing Powder by Calvin Klein framing the face lightly.

Lips – No lip liner.  Just a clear gloss 😉   Let me know how it comes out if you try it!

Pretty in Purple – GET THE FACE!

This was a really fun shoot with a mermaid theme.  I don’t use bright colors that often so I was excited to do so this day.  I really pushed for the smokey purple eyes instead of the usual black and I love it! LOL.  So girls and guys, GET THE FACE –

On Kim – I used Giorgio Armani Silk Luminous foundation to get a more glowy look.  I mixed a couple of the colors to get the exact match.  It’s set lightly with Laura Mercier translucent powder.  The brows are filled in with CORK by MAC.  On the lids I used Stars N’ Rockets by MAC.  In the crease, outter corners and under the eye, i used Deep Truth – also by MAC.   Right below the Deep Truth shadow, I blended Creme de Violet shadow (a lighter shimmery purple, MAC) all the way down to the cheek bones.  I also swept a bit of it on the brow bone.  The liner on the top is a very pigmented black liquid that I blended myself from GIELLA cosmetics.  In the inner rim of the eye, I used the black power point pencil from MAC and ALOT mascara – Bad Gal mascara by Benefit.  For this shoot, my assistant and I cut up a bunch of different lashes and I placed them in peices all over the lash line so I wouldn’t be able to tell you the brand or style type.

For blush, I used Angelika by NARS and the bronzing powder by LORAC ( framing the whole face and on the hollows of the cheeks).  To get that glow all over the skin and on the bridge of the nose, I blended my own color with different pigments and shimmers but you can get a very similiar effect by using Shroom shadow by MAC, or if your skin is darker, try Trace Gold blush by MAC. 

For Kim’s lips, I used alittle bit of the foundation on them, followed by a clear gloss.  So easy 😉

 

On Kourtney – I used the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Fawn all over her face, followed by Laura Mercier loose powder in Beige. 

On the lids – Creme de violet.  On the outer crease is vibrant grape and also on the lower lash line.  I used Smolder by MAC on the inner rim of the eyes and blended into the vibrant grape (with more on the outter corner).  I filled in her brows with Espresso shadow by MAC and brushed them with the MAX FACTOR clear brow gel.  Her eyes are lined with Feline, also MAC.  For eyelashes, I used L’oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black.

On the apples of the cheeks, I used NARS blush in Desire and I framed her face and the hollows of the cheeks with the new Tantalizer baked bronzer by LORAC. 

Lips are lined with Spice by MAC, blended towards the center.  Lipstick is called Mario Pinched My Lips by GIELLA cosmetics, followed by a clear gloss.

On Khloe – For skin, I used the Matte Velvet foundation by Make Up For Ever and set it with the HD translucent powder, also by MUFE.  Khloes eye makeup is almost identical to Kourtney’s, except on her lids, I used red violet by MAC – so refer to her eye makeup above.  I used a few coats of the Lancome definicils mascara on top and bottom lashes.  Her lashes are filled in with Lingering pencil by MAC.

The apples of cheeks are brushed with Orgasm by NARS and the cheekbones with Good as Gold by MAC.  Framing her face is the Guerlain Terracotta bronzer.

For lips, I used Lingering lip liner by GIELLA cosmetics blended all the way in and followed by the Lip Enhancing Gloss in Expose by Smashbox.

On Kris – Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation followed by Make Up For Ever HD powder.

Brows are filled in with MAC shadow in Cork.  I used creme de violet by MAC all over her lid and vibrant grape on the outter lids and on the crease.  I then used Carbon by MAC on the outter crease for more intensity.  The inner rim is lined with Smolder pencil by MAC.  Lancome definicils mascara on top and bottom lashes.

NARS blush in Desire on the apples of her cheeks and Smashbox bronzer all over in Suntan Matte.  I used Artificial Light Luminizing lotion by Smashbox on the cheek bones for a glow and on the center of the lip.  Lips are lined with subculture by MAC and turkish delight gloss by NARS.

ps.  I know you’re going to ask about the concealer, LOL but I can’t say because I was testing out and blending some formulas (with no names or colors yet).  😉  Hope you guys GET THE FACE!!

XO Mario
