Kim Kardashian Makeup Look!

Many of us, while not approving of Kim Kardashian’s personal behavior, are grudgingly admiring of the woman’s flawless and dramatic makeup, as showcased in the picture below:

The cornerstones of her striking makeup include highlighting and contouring (which I discussed in the following blog post from several months back: Contouring 101), a glossy nude pout, and dramatic smokey eyes.

Since my skin tone is so different from Kim’s olive complexion, I invited my dear friend Christina, who is of beautiful Mediterranean coloring, to pose as my makeup model for a Kim Kardashian inspired look!
