For a recent promo shoot to promote Kim Kardashian's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashian's, makeup artist Troy Jensen used Yves Saint Laurent makeup to create this smoky, sexy look.
Step 1: Use a light moisturizer and eye cream to prepare the skin.
Step 2: Dab a touch of concealer under the eyes, around the mouth, and anywhere to conceal skin imperfections. Blend with a foundation brush. On Kim: Anti-Cernes Multi-Action Concealer in 2 Nude Beige.
Step 3: Dab a touch of pale beige liquid shimmer at the top of the cheek bones, above the lip, and down the center of the nose. Blend well with the same foundation brush you used with the concealer. Then apply the liquid foundation across the forehead, down the jawline, and into the neck, blending with your foundation brush and making sure you blend well into the skin. On Kim: Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation in 6 Gold Beige.
Step 4: Set with pressed powder. On Kim: Matt and Radiant Pressed Powder in 4 Golden Beige.
Step 5: Apply powder cheek color, starting with the apples of the cheek and blending upward toward the hairline. Blend well. On Kim: Touche Blush in 6 Sienna.
Step 6: Start eyes with a well-groomed brow and using your powder eye-shadow duo, dust the light shade just below the brow and the darker shade over the entire eye lid and below the lower lash line, creating a smokey effect. Blending upward but not too cat-like. Then line entire eye with black eyeliner and blend with a sponge applicator or q-tip. Curl and coat your lashes. On Kim: Eye Shadow Duo in 1 Heavenly Beige-Astral Brown, Long Lasting Eye Pencil in 1 Intense Black, and Luxurious Mascara in 1 High Density Black.
Step 7: Line your lips with a neutral lip-liner, if needed, for added definition or just simply apply the pale pink lipstick to the entire lips and top off with the shimmering lip gloss. On Kim: Sheer Lipstick in 11 Pink Diamond, Shimmering Lip Gloss in 11 Golden Whisper.
Step 8: Nails should be black with a touch of top coat for added shine.
