Kim K Is The "Face Of A Generation" Apparently

When the makeup artist of the year compliments your look, you’ve pretty much arrived, am I right? Charlotte Tilbury called Kim Kardashian the “face of a generation,” when speaking to InStyle, as if the star needed anymore prestige. You have to admit that Tilbury's onto something — Kardashian does kill it when it comes to contouring, smoky eyes, and so much more.

Tilbury went on to say, “I think that she is such a beauty icon. You know what I mean? I think that the way that she looks, her beauty, the way that she does her makeup, the different styles that she does. She’s such an empowerment for all women in terms of beauty. People really look up to her and her beauty. She kind of settles the whole contouring trend. She sets trends in makeup.”

The artist clearly knows what she’s talking about, so if she thinks this highly of Kardashian's look, then the reality star is doing something right. So much so that she's setting the standards in the beauty world. All I know is, wherever Kim K leads, I'll gladly follow.

In order to celebrate the face of our generation, let’s take a look at nine of Kim K’s best makeup looks. From minimalism to a bold lip, this lady has worn a variety of beauty styles. Worn them, and worn them well, in fact.

Her gold eyeshadow and long lashes add a glam-factor to this minimal, slicked-back look.

Just look at how her cheeks shimmer.

3. Red Lip Classic

Kim K rarely slicks a bright color on her lips, but when she does — it's amazing.

4. Barely There

I love when she works a "barely there" kind of look. She's so gorge when her makeup is natural looking.

5. Contour Queen

But, then again, she contours like no other.

6. So Dramatic

She can definitely pull off dramatic eye makeup, too.

7. Nude Lip

When your makeup matches your clothing.

8. Feeling The Blues

A little blue liner really adds something special.

9. No Filter

Although, I personally love when she goes makeup-free the best of all.

For someone who loves her beauty routine so much, it definitely pays off.
