Have you ever found yourself getting sucked into YouTube beauty or makeup tutorials? The other weekend when I was browsing online, I some how came across this Kim Kardashian video tutorial on strobing with her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. First off, do you think strobing is the new contouring?
Anywho, one thing lead to another and soon enough I had watched more Kim Kardashian make up tutorials than I’d like to admit. So given I did so much research on her make up/beauty routine, I thought it was only fair to share the wealth with you guys.
I’m a big, big fan of achieving a natural “glow” during summer so I actually thought some of the products that Mario Dedivanovic recommended during the various tutorials we’re great. I was also pleasantly surprised that I already had a good amount of these products in my make up bag (celebs, their just like us!). Here’s what I already own and what I’ll be purchasing (most likely during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!).
What I Own
Benefit’s ‘Watt’s up!’ highlighter – hello, strobing! The video tutorial I linked above actually gave me some good tips on some new ways to use this highlighter.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder. This is a great powder to help set your make up for the day. I also love the little shimmer.
Peach blush is one of my favorites way to give my cheeks a little color during the summer. I’ve had this Nars hot sand/laguna blush and bronzer duo for years.
On My Radar
The number one product I want to add to my make up bag is this Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye Stick (in Honey Bunny). Of course the shade that is shared in the video tutorial is sold out on Sephora, but there are plenty of other color options to choose from.
Tom Ford nude lipsticks. Throughout numerous articles and videos, Kim shares how her and Mario like to stick to a “nude’ shade when it comes to lipsticks and more often than not, they actually mix different colors.
I think it’s well known by now that the Kardashian’s love Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation. I typically don’t love heavy foundations but definitely willing to try this for special occasions.
Charlotte Tillbury’s ‘Luxury Palette’ is right up my alley. I love mixing various shades of brown for nights out on the town.
Also from Charlotte Tillbury’s line, the ‘Lip Cheat’ Re-size and re-shape lip liner was also used in the video tutorial with Mario. I have to be honest, I never ever use lip liner but because this is so nude I’d be willing to test it out.
