While a good primer is an essential step for Kim’s makeup team, nothing means anything without the photo-ready-finish her team creates with Naked Foundation fromUrban Decay. The Naked Foundation settles beautifully on top of any primer and allows Kim’s makeup team to layer all of the next steps to create Kim’s flawless look.
From Urban Decay: Whoever said ‘you can’t have the best of both worlds’ never tried Naked Skin. Not only does our new light-as-air foundation give you the buildable coverage you desire – it also looks and feels like you’re wearing absolutely nothing.
Naked Skin uses light-diffusing spheres to ‘blur’ imperfections for a luminous, demi-matte finish that feels invisible but looks professionally retouched. Naked Skin is oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and loaded with nourishing ingredients

It’s not just that Kim has these alluring almond eyes – she also knows how to frame them. The key to any signature-eye-look is actually in a strong brow. Kim isn’t afraid to use her lush-full-dark-brow to accentuate her dynamic shadows and huge-hollywood-lashes.
From Urban Decay: Match your brow to your box! We packed all the tools you need for amazing brows into one palm-size kit: two shades of brow color, wax, tweezers and two brushes. Maintaining your brows shouldn’t involve a small army of products and a sizeable amount of real estate in your bag. That’s why we created our all-in-one Brow Box.

When you really look closely at what makes Kim’s eyes pop, you can see that her eyeshadow has crazy amounts of layers!!! Sometimes up to five or six colors of shadow surround her gorgeous brown eyes. Layering warm-nude to dark-brown colors from the outside of the lash line and into the corner of the eye creates intense depth. Then once the eye is contoured with a multi-dimensional shadow combination Kim’s makeup team brushes a soft-sparkly-cream-colored shadow just on the inside of the lid to give her eyes that glowing essence that makes us unable to take our eyes off of her!!!
It is no secret that all of the Kardashian women love their false lashes!!! Honestly I think the Kardashian women are the reason any of us even wear falsies now in our regular lives. Kim’s eyes are already so gorgeous, but when she applies her sky-high falsies – there is just no stopping them. For Kim the bigger the lash the better!!
Once Kim’s signature eye look and perfect brow are in place, her team contours her chiseled face with a blush and bronzer combination. The bronzer goes on first from the ear and down under the cheekbone. Then the bronzer is lightly brushed at her temples and the bridge of her nose. Her team then uses a warm-sweet-shade of blush just at her cheekbone to bring out her bone structure. Layering the bronzer and then the blush allows Kim’s team to create a slimmer and perfectly chiseled look on Kim’s oval face.
All of Kim’s features are impeccable including her perfectly full lips. Although her lips are full and luscious she doesn’t always slather on a deep or bright color to show them off. Kim’s makeup team is smart and very strategic – they know that if her eye makeup is bangin’ they want us to focus on that so they always apply a perfect nude lips gloss to take our attention straight to Kim’s mesmerizing eyes. When Kim has on her signature nude lip, her lips sparkle and shine but are not distracting or make her look overdone.
From Urban Decay: The soft, cushiony texture goes on smoothly and stays put longer than other glosses. You also get a great color payout (sometimes hard to find in a gloss) and a range of amazing shades, including sheer, pretty neutrals, knockout brights, and a glimmering nearly black. The range of textures and shades will hook even the most jaded junkie.
