Kim Kardashian Inspired Look


A few weeks ago I saw this pic online of gorgeous Kim Kardashian, and what was so striking to me were the hot pink lips and of course the sexy sultry cat eyes, but mainly the lips, LOL! Even though her pic is a bit washed out so it's hard to tell the true colors, you can still sorta get an idea of how it probably looks like up close. I am a lipstick kind of a gal, so I was excited to play around with a similar look and do a hot pink lip.

It was just an inspired look, meaning I just wanted to do something similar but with my own little twist just for fun. I am in no way saying it looks like KK's version, or that I am KK, lol. I thought i'd add some false lower lashes for a more dramatic effect, but the bottom two pics were taking from my cell phone and are without the lower lashes since it wasn't the 'finished' product yet. 

I kept the lid simple and basic, just applied MAC e/s in "Bisque" and "Bamboo" all over the lid, then applied Revlon's liquid eyeliner in "Blackest Black" to mimic a cat eye and winged it out as well as on the inner corner of my eyes (if you look closely her eyeliner is also pointed on the inner corners of her lids), the upper & lower lashes are from, and lined the bottom with a no-name black eyeliner and smudged it out.

My camera made my blush look way darker than it was in person for some reason, but it was a lot lighter than shown! I used my Verhoeven Bronzer, and a mix of Tarte "Tipsy" blush and MAC "True Romantic". I applied a dab of MAC MSF in "Petticoat" on the apples of my cheeks for a little shimmer. And lastly, for the lips I used NYX lipliner in "Bloom" and Covergirl Lipstick in "Spellbound".
 [What I used]:

Lancome Teinte Idol Ultra Foundation in Bisque 0 (W)
Graftobian HD Powder in "Soft Ivory"
Mary Kay Concealer in "Yellow" 

MAC e/s in "Bisque" and "Bamboo" all over the lid
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black
No-name black eyeliner on lower lashline
KKcenterHK lashes on top and bottom (forgot the style)
Eyebrows (MAC e/s in "Espresso)

Mix of MAC "True Romantic" and Tarte "Tipsy" Blush
A dab of MAC MSF in "Petticoat" for shimmer
Verhoeven Bronzer for contouring

- NYX Lipliner in "Bloom"
- Covergirl Lipstick in "Spellbound"

When I was starting the wasn't yet finished:

Thanks ladies!

Katrina- Yeah I just mixed "Bisque" and "Bamboo" together, bisque alone gives a whiteish cast on me, but I like that it's matte and sorta neutralizes my lid, so I mixed a little bit of that with Bamboo which is closer to my natural skin color and just applied it on my entire lid.
