Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover Makeup

Regardless of what you might think of Kim Kardashian's career, her antics, her looks...one thing can't be refuted: Her makeup on her recent controversial Vogue Covershoot was the bomb.com!!

  • What do you think of Kim and Kanye appearing on the cover of Vogue?? Do you think she "deserved" it? Did you like the cover, or will you be cancelling your subscription like Sarah Michelle Gellar?
    • My Thoughts: I honestly don't really care! It's completely irrelevant to my life who is on the cover of a fashion magazine. As long as people are interested in Kim and her life, she will be famous and probably gracing more magazine covers. 

Above I've taken a screenshot of the accompanying video from the photoshoot that Vogue posted on their Youtube channel. I changed my eye color to match Kim's, so you can see how similar the look is. When I first saw pictures of Kim's look, I thought it was actually really, really dark. In truth it's more of a medium brown and bronzey smokey eye, with some gold highlighting.

This would be a really perfect bridal makeup if you're looking for something a bit more dramatic than just natural tones. I tried on my own wedding dress after filming this look, with my hair up like this and the jewelry, and I loved it! I might wear something like this on my own wedding day next February.

  1. Great makeup and great post! You nailed it! <3 Emily


  2. Gefällt mir sehr gut, ich schaue deine Videos jetzt schon eine ganze Weile und finde es toll wie du die Looks immer elegant und modern zugleich wirken lässt! :)

  3. You always create such beautiful tutorials. Love this!

  4. Beautiful! Can you make a post or video about finding the right lash shape for your eye shape?? I find that some look weird on my almond eyes.

  5. I believe she did deserve to be on the cover of Vogue. No matter what people think of her, she's absolutely beautiful! No one would even know any of her family if it wasn't for her. She is the star of the family. You did an awesome reproduction of the look!!

    I'm confused! Did you buy contact lenses just for the shoot or was it a photoshop work? If so, well done!
