Get Lashes like Kim K. and Kylie J.
Posted on March 04 2015
It's undeniable, the Kardashian and Jenner sisters are the ultimate beauty trend setters, and now even Kim has admitted to taking advice from her little sister Kylie. Kylie loves over-lined lips and big soft eyes. It's obvious, you can't achieve a Kim K. or Kylie J. look without big beautiful eyes, and dramatic lashes!
The sisters always start with flawless, airbrushed looking skin by using foundation that perfectly matches their skin tones. Think of this first step as prepping the canvas. Eye-makeup applied straight to the skin won't blend properly, and will end up looking unnatural. After the foundation has been evenly applied and blended, fill in your brows.
Beauty expert, Farah Dhukai suggests, in her Kylie Jenner makeup tutorial blog and videos, to use a base on the lids like MAC Soft Ocre Paint Pot. You want the base to be lighter than your skin tone to make the shades show up more true to color; especially for neutral colors on tan skin tones. Then apply another neutral layer to wash out the eyelid and make for easy blending of the other shadows. After the base and the two neutral steps are complete, apply a nude shimmer on the eyelid and in the inner corners of the eyes. Then use a matte nude shade to highlight the brows. Finish the shadow with a crease color. Farah uses a warm leather color by NYX, then blends the shadows for a rounded look. She then uses that same leather color to smoke-out the lower lash line, and finally connects the lower line upwards to the crease color.
Use a small amount of black eyeliner on the outer two-thirds of the eye. Loreal Paris makes a versatile black or blackest black eye-liner pencil called Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner. For a Kylie specific look start the line of black eyeliner a third of the way across the eye, extend the line past the lash line to create a small wing-tip look. Kylie doesn't exaggerate her eyeliner, so keep the wing off of the eye short. Use a nude eyeliner to the water line (the inside lower line) to get that big, bright-eyed look. Farah also suggests that Kylie wears false eyelashes, then applies mascara. Opt for a medium or high volume mink lash for a beautiful, bold Kardashian/Jenner look. Once you've completed your lashes, your look will be complete, and totally Kim K. worthy!
