GET THE FACE! Kim K at Leather & Laces, continued…

As promised, here is the complete “Get The Face” breakdown of products that I used on Kim for the Leather & Laces event in Miami.  I hope you try out the look and send me images.  I would love to feature photos of you girls that do your makeup inspired by my “get the face” posts.

On skin-  Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream all over skin first.  NARS sheer glow foundation in Barcelona applied with a sponge.  Under eyes, use Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer in Meduim Vanilla.  Set the face with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder in #2 using very little.

Brows are filled in with Brow Sculpting Pencil by Sephora, in Medium.  Brush them through with the opposite end of the pencil once filled in.

Eyes –  Sweep Josie Maran EyeShadow in Vintage all over the lid.  On the crease and also smoked along the lower lashine, use Cacao EyeShadow, also by Josie Maran.  Line the upper lash line with Sephoras Doe Eyed Felt eyeliner in Black.  L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on top and bottom lashes.  For some added drama, use the long individual false lashes by Ardell on the outter upper corners.

Warm up and frame the face with Smashbox bronzer in Suntanne Matte.  Also brush some on the hollows of the cheeks.  Sweep NYC New York Color Color Wheel in Peach Glow on the apples of the cheeks and a bit across the forehead and chin.

To get that gorgeous, glowing skin, use EYE M GLAM highlighter.  Brush it on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and right on the cupids bow of upper lip.  I also used it on her brow bones and inner corner of her eyes.

Line lips with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Heavy (shimmery nude shade).  Use Captivating Coral lipstick by Motives and follow with Covergirl Wetslicks gloss in Fig.
