No matter your makeup skills – cloud skin like Kim’s is super easy to achieve. The key here is to use a few soft-focus and luminous products in conjunction with your skin-perfecting routine. We recommend using this luminescent moisturiser on your skin that gives it a hefty dose of hydration and a radiant glow. Then follow it up with a primer to diffuse the appearance of skin texture and fine lines giving a blurred finish. Wait for at least 5 to 10 minutes to ensure the products really sink into your skin. Then, with a damp sponge, apply a medium to full coverage foundation on the face, blended down to your neck. Pat and blend a creamy concealer under the eyes and on any scars and blemishes.
Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and brush them in place with a spoolie. You can also use a clear brow product to set the stray hairs in place. To make your brow more defined, use a lighter shade of concealer on the brow bone and above the brow.
Apply an eye primer all over the eyelids to ensure your makeup stays put all night long. With a dense angled brush, apply a nude brown shade along the eye socket, resembling a soft cut crease. Then, take a flat shader brush to apply some creamy white eyeshadow to the center of your eyelids. Then, take a brown shadow and use it to smoke out the lower lash line.
Curl your lashes and coat them with a voluminising mascara. If you want more oomph, stick on a pair of voluminous falsies.
Take a darker shade of concealer and use it to sculpt your face. Apply it across the temples, hairline, and jawline, and along the hollows of your cheeks. Then, pop a powder blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Ready to take a time machine back to the ‘90s? Just prep your lips, and grab a liner that’s 2 to 3 shades darker than your lipstick colour. Focus it on the outer corner of your lips before lightly feathering it around the rest of the mouth. Fill it in with a nude brown hue. All you need is a great liner-lipstick duo to master this old-school lip look.
It’s time to turn up the heat!
