It’s only natural we want to look our most beautiful on our wedding day, and many of us look at Kim Kardashian and her flawless beauty and wonder how we can achieve that ourselves. Well, fortunately, there is an easy way to walk down the aisle with the perfect, flawless look like Kim.
One of Kim’s trademarks is her dark, exotic eyes. Outline the eye with a glide on pencil, try the 24/7 glide on pencil “Perverson” by Urban Decay, and blend it out with a pencil brush, this will create a dark base on which the eye shadow will be built up on. Next, you want to add further definition with some long, sexy lashes. You don’t need to go for fake lashes, just pick a mascara that’ll create the effect, like the Voluminous False Fiber Lashes from L’Oreal, however, if you go all out, then just add some good quality fake lashes on top after you’ve applied the eye shadow. Then apply eye shadow of dark brown shades, but only up to the crease. Make sure to blend it with a good taper brush.
Lighten up the features with a concealer brush under the eyebrows, and then blend this in with a light shadow. Then add a generous amount of concealer under the eyes. Perhaps this might seem excessive, but remember, this is a key part to the Kardashian look.
Make sure you pick out a good quality foundation, that’ll give you good coverage and matches you skin tone. There are plenty out there to choose from, so pick the best for you. Apply this over your face, and you’ll notice it’ll definitely warm up your skin tone.
To set your cheekbones off Kardashian style, you need a good quality blush palette. One great on is the Powder/Blush Brush F1O Sigma. You can use this to create definition. One neat trick is to use a business card to mark the line for contouring.
For the lips, keep it simple. Strong colors are definitely not part of the Kardashian look, so choose a nude gloss or a light pink shade for the lips. What you really want to focus on is flawless skin and strong eyes. You can even go crazy and build up with lashes and set them together by gently using eyelash curlers.
This is a great looks for blondes or brunettes with dark eyes.

Kim Kardashian is definitely no stranger to having her life documented on film, I mean, isn’t that why she’s famous in the first place? It looks like ever since Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West have been expecting their baby; the couple has received publicity no matter where you look.
The reality TV star and her rapper boyfriend are expecting their first baby in July, and it looks like the whole Kardashian family are giddy with excitement about the new arrival. In the baby’s honor, it looks like Kim Kardashian’s family is hiring a professional videographer to tape her baby shower. Kim’s family are so excited about the new arrival they’ve decided to plan a party to celebrate Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. Does kim Kardashian have any wedding plans in the near future? We will have to wait and see if Kim and Kanye West Tie the Knot.
While Kim Kardashian has decided she doesn’t want to record the whole party on her famous TV show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” so her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, and mom Kris Jenner, have concocted a new plan of action.
“They’ve asked for some of Kim’s oldest friends and family to record a message to be played at the shower,” said an insider to the National Enquirer, “They are even bringing in a professional videographer and editor to create it.”
It looks like Kanye is also involved in the project; since he’s due to bring in some of his own family to attend the celebrations, which will take place in the spring.
“The shower is going to happen in the spring, outdoors, under a tent in Kris’s backyard,” continued the insider, “The colors have already been chosen: silver, white, cream and pale yellow.”
This won’t be the first baby shower hosted by the Kardashians, since Kourtney has already had two of her own prior to the birth of her children Mason and Penelope. Kourtney Kardashian found them very special and unique experiences, so she’s hoping she can host a baby shower to remember for her sister Kim.
“Her sisters are planning a touching tribute to her at the shower,” another source revealed, “not unlike what was done for Kourtney, who was presented with a life-size-cut-out of herself as a child.”
It looks like there is no getting out of this for Kim, and until the birth, the media will keep a close eye on Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. The Kardashians like to do things big, so why should Kim’s own baby shower be any different?

It’s only natural that you want to look fabulous for your wedding day, so how can you create a drop-dead-gorgeous look without overdoing it? The best starting block for any tricks to bridal beauty is to find your best features and to maximize them. Part of your own brand is your coloring, and here we’re going to look at some tips and tricks to make brunettes become unforgettable beauties on their trip down the aisle.
First of all, if you’re a brunette – throw out the pink lipstick. This is great on blue-eyed blondes, but if your coloring is darker it’ll make you look washed out. Pick rich colors like cinnamon, a spicy red or terracotta.
This look is absolutely stunning and really goes with dark hair. You can even dare to try darker colors to draw attention to your lips. If you can’t give up a dark pink lipstick, then put emphasis on the eyes and opt for the chic nude look that’s all the rage on bridal catwalks these days.
Brunettes are in danger of looking pasty, so give yourself a healthy look by applying a little bit of bronzer on the cheeks. This will not only highlight your cheekbones but it’s a natural look that really pops out the contours on your face. Just avoid overdoing it, otherwise you’ll have an unflattering and cheapening sheen.
The best way to bring out your features is to go for dramatic eyes, this is a great look for brunettes. This way you can keep the rest of the face looking natural, and you’ll look stunning! If you have brown eyes, then you can experiment with colors like blue or pale lilac. These will help enrich the brown in your eyes. But if you have lighter skin tone, then try to avoid a hard look by opting for dark brown mascara instead of black, where are darker tones and brown eyes look great with black.
Picking the right foundation is vitally important. The wrong color for your skin tone and you’ll either look unhealthy or artificial. Any good department store will give you a consultation for the right look, but do make sure you try out any foundation in natural light to assure that the color has blended in effectively with your skin tone.
With the right make up, brunettes can look natural and polished at the same time by using warm and rich make up tones to really bring out the features and draw attention to the complex brown shades of your hair.

She’s got Kim Kardashian Eyes…..
There may not be a song about Kim Kardashian eyes, but there are plenty of girls out there that want to copy her smoky, wide-eyed look. And why not? Kim may not be one to talk about in the marriage department, but she knows what she’s doing when it comes to putting on her face.
While Kim has reportedly been crazy for MAC products, that doesn’t mean you can’t get ‘the look’ if you use something else. The key is the selection of color.
The key to great makeup begins with the basics-concealer and primer. Concealer applied under the eye area to get rid of any dark circles and primer applied to the entire eyelid is essential for a flawless look. This should be followed by a lightweight foundation that precisely matches your skin tone.
Kim uses cream blush (as we all should)-usually in a peach or coral color. If you have the dark hair and eyes like she does, you can go with peach if you want a monochromatic look or go a bit deeper if you want something with a bit more glam.
Now for those eyes…. The brows need to be neatly groomed and naturally shaped and full. No thin lines here. The next step for ‘Kim eyes’ is to apply a light shade of tan or khaki shadow over the nude primer you’ve already applied. Follow this with deep, dark brown, charcoal, purple or bronze. NOTE: If you go bronze, make it a shade or two darker or lighter than your eyes to make them appear bigger and wider instead of ‘normal’. NOTE: If you use purple, you might want to layer it on top of a deep gray. The color should be deep, dark and go from lash line to just above the crease. Oh, and don’t forget to blend.
Next is the eyeliner. Having dark eyes, you have the option to use black, brown or even purple. A thin line on both the top and bottom lashes. You can smudge the bottom line a bit for a sultry, dreamy look.
Mascara-Kim goes for multiple layers. And even though some might think it a bit much, it sure does work for her-and you, too, if done correctly. On your top lashes…start with lengthening mascara in dark black. Using a flat brush, apply a layer of translucent powder to your lashes and then apply another coat of the lengthening mascara. If you want, you can do this a third time before applying either one or two coats of thickening mascara. As for the bottom lashes, a coat or two of lengthening mascara is sufficient.
Finish the look with a dusting of translucent powder, a shiny but neutral lip color (the emphasis is the eyes) and you’re good to go. If your coloring is compatible, the Kim Kardashian look is a great one for your wedding day. Your radiance will be obvious-but to add a little oomph to your eyes, this might be just the look you are looking for.
