I can’t speak for everyone, but I’d gladly take style and beauty tips from this woman. Any. Day. Of. The. Week. Kim Kardashian detailed 35 things she learned before turning 35 on her website, so, of course, I view this list as gospel. If Kim K lives by these rules, fashion and otherwise, then so can I. Quite honestly, so can anyone. I think that you’ll find — no matter how much of an icon she may or may not be to you — that there is some solid advice on this list.
Of the 35 things that made her list, 11 of them have to do with fashion and beauty, because with age comes wisdom and style. At the age of 35, I’d say that Kardashian has really come into her own as far as personal taste is concerned, in part thanks to Kanye, but also just because, well, you live and you learn. You wear things that you think are great and then you see a picture of yourself later and think “Why did I ever go out in public like that?” It’s trial and error, but Kim K’s got the process down pat by now.
Here are all of the things she’s learned about style, and see if you don’t learn a thing or two from her along the way.
1. Don't Be Afraid To Change Up Your Look
You can describe Kim K as a lot of things, but I don't think "safe" is one of them. She's not afraid to wear daring things or try out different looks.
2. Always Take Off Your Makeup Before Bed
Some things you learn the hard way.
3. All White Always Works, No Matter What Time Of Year It Is
She's right, you know. Don't let a silly "fashion faux-pas" keep you from rocking white year-round.
4. Sometimes, You Just Have To Let North Wear Her Minnie Mouse Outfit To Bed
Choose your battles.
5. Always Wear Sunscreen
Protecting your skin is crucial.
6. A Perfectly Centered Part Takes Time, But It's Worth It
She would know. She owns a middle-part like no other.
7. Always Use Body Oil To Keep Your Skin Moist
She's got this skincare routine on lock.
8. When In Doubt, Wear Black
Black is always a good idea.
9. Airplane Bathrooms Have Great Lighting For Selfies
Because the perfect selfie is hard to come by.
10. You Can't Go Wrong With A Nude Nail
Nude nails are simple and sophisticated. Plus, they go with everything.
11. Be Comfortable In Your Own Skin
Above all else, Kim K is happy with who she is and where she's at in her life. And that's really the most beautiful thing of all.
