One of the many things the Kardashian-Jenners are known for is their unfailingly ***flawless makeup game. Sure, they've probably got their glam squads on speed dial, but their beauty consistency is still pretty impressive. One of their most distinctive facial features is their lips, and even though Kylie's got the plump on lock, Kim's pout is pretty alluring, too. The secret's out, though: Here's how to line your lips like Kim Kardashian for her full look.
In a video posted on her app, Mario Dedivanovic, one of her trusty makeup artists, demonstrates how he does her lips so they're perfectly plush but not over-the-top. "Kim loves a very creamy, peachy, nude lip, so we'll show you how to achieve that look," says Dedivanovic.
Sure, you've got to subscribe on the app to watch the whole thing, but the liner is where it all begins, literally.
And I've got to say, it's really bizarre watching the one and only Kim Kardashian act as a beauty demonstration model. We don't get one word from her in the clip, just a single sly smile. Classic Kim, so coy.
Here's the 35-second tutorial:
To start, grab your favorite peachy pink lipliner and start at the outer corner of your bottom lip, tracing it downwards and stopping at the center of the lip. Try for short strokes to make the look more natural, as shown by Dedivanovic.
Go back to the outer corner of the upper lip and bring the liner to the cupid's bow, stopping at the center again.
Repeat on the other side. The benefit of doing one side at a time, BTW, is that you'll be able to achieve a more even look.
While we don't get to see the whole tutorial, her distinctive lip liner is a good starting point.
Here's your quick Kim-inspired routine for a full nude lip:
Whether you're going for a bold red or just a simple nude swipe, priming your lips can work wonders on your lip color's staying power.
This actually is Kim's go-to pencil, as shown in the video. And tracing justttt outside your actual lip makes 'em appear fuller, according to PopSugar.
Kim is one of Charlotte Tilbury's many celebrity devotees, so I'm willing to bet she's a CT lipstick lover. Swipe this shiny nude hue on after applying your liner Kim-style.
For the finishing touch, dot a little gloss on the center of your lips for a full illusion.
