Kim attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this past Monday, September 12th and needed a look that was a little more done up than her everyday makeup but also soft. She wanted the eyes to be a little smokey in neutral tones paired with a lighter lip.
Before creating a look, I always like to take into consideration the actual outfit for the event. In the photos above, she is wearing a robe but Kim shared with me the outfit prior to me doing the makeup. Kim showed me a beautiful floral top with burgundy leather pants.
I opted for warmer eye shadows with a slight burgundy undertone. The lips were nude with a pop of lip liner to add definition and not allow for the lips to blend in too much with her natural skin tone. For the complexion, airbrush makeup was the way to go to ensure it would outlast the humidity and also give a flawless finish without the feeling of wearing makeup.
Complexion: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Cinema Secrets Ultimate Foundation Palette (used a little bit as under eye concealer), Dinair Glamour Airbrush Foundation in Light Golden Beige, Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder (to set the entire foundation), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Deep (for cheek contour), NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross (cheek highlight), MAC Powder Blush in Melba (just a light dusting)
Eyes: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, MAC eyeshadows: Sable (lid), Nylon (brow highlight), All That Glitters (inner corners of eyes), Amber Lights (crease), Shadowy Lady and Embark (outer crease blended together), MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline in Blacktrack (top liner, thin and slight wing upwards), NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Appia (lined on the bottom first), Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner pencil in black (very softly lined over the Via Appia), Kiss false lashes in the style Shy (these fit perfectly, no trimming needed), Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara in black (I put a thin coat on the bottom lashes along with the top to blend in the natural lashes with false lashes), MAC eyeshadow in Cork (lightly to fill in the brows)
