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!
