Kim Kardashian gets frequent requests from fans to post her makeup routine, apparently, and she 'finally did it!' while in Toronto for Kanye West's 'Saint Pablo' tour.
In a nine-minute video that she posted to her site and on YouTube, Kim goes through the 'quick' version of the makeup routine she does when she's on the road. From her hotel bathroom, with cameos from Kanye and BFF Jonathan Cheban, Kim goes from bare-faced to everyday glam.
Kim first takes a Neutrogena makeup wipe to her almost-bare face. 'I forgot my face wash but I already started my eye makeup so I'm going to be super sloppy and just use a Neutrogena...makeup wipe,' Kim says. (Real.)
She hydrates her skin with a $240 jar of La Mer Perfecting Treatment and follows with 'Giorgio Armani sheer shimmer stuff,' or Giorgio Armani Shimmer Sheer. 'This just adds shimmer under the foundation,' she says. 'Cause I just love a little extra glow.'
Kim puts up her hair to get it out of her face and spends a second debating which foundation to put on—"Do I use a Chanel foundation or an Armani?" She ultimately settles on the Armani. Here are some of my favorite lines from her monologue:
- 'Does anyone else put foundation all over their lips?'
- 'Always make sure to get the back of your neck.'
- 'Do you guys listen to music when you get ready?'
- 'I love putting my brushes away as we go.'
Even when she only has a few minutes, Kim contours. 'You gotta go in the hairline a little bit,' she says. 'Makes your forehead look smaller too.'
She bakes her makeup using yellow and pink powders. (If you're not baking your makeup, you need to know about the technique. Read more about it here.)
Kim does her eyes, applying layers of mascara, contouring her lids, filling in her brows, and cleaning up her shadow. She also says she can't ever do her makeup right in front of a guy because it's too stressful.
Kim moves on to her lips and uses little sister Kylie's Lip Kit in 'Candy K' along with a few other products. Kanye comes by the bathroom and she asks him how he likes it. 'It looks so pretty! I love that!' So supportive.
She shows off her finished look in selfie mode and finds some flaws with her makeup. 'Shit, I shoulda winged that liner a little bit more,' she says. 'Oh well.'
