7 Kim Kardashian Quotes About Makeup That Proves She's A Beauty Maven — PHOTOS
When it comes to makeup, Kim Kardashian may just be the queen of it all. From contouring, to bold lip colors, to dramatic eye makeup, Kim has probably seen and done it all. So if you're looking for cosmetic advice, or are just curious about the reality star's daily routine, I've pulled together some of Kim Kardashian's makeup quotes that prove she knows what she's talking about. Given that her makeup is so buzzed about that she had a master class to teach fans how to do it, you might want to pay attention to her free tips.
The 35-year-old star's makeup is one of the most talked about in Hollywood, mostly due to her contouring wizardry. But whether you love it or think it's a bit over-the-top, you have to admit — Kim definitely knows a thing or two about cosmetics. Being in the business and having professionals do your makeup all the time would definitely impart some serious insider knowledge that most of us don't have, so Kardashian-West offering up makeup advice is something that might perk your ears up a little. Luckily, she seems more than willing to talk about it on the regs, both in interviews and on her newly launched app.
So you don't have to scour the internet for her tidbits, here are seven of Kim's best quotes about makeup.
1. On Her Relationship With Makeup
While I think Kim looks fan-freaking-tastic without makeup, she prefers being made up. "I do rely on having a full face on," Kim said.
2. On Foundation
If you want a Kim K. approved complexion, choose your foundation wisely. “I hate when women wear the wrong foundation color. It might be the worst thing on the planet when they wear their makeup too light," she said.
3. On Trying New Products
Kim's always trying to expand her beauty routine. "I have so many friends who don’t wear makeup and hardly ever do their hair. I feel really blessed because I genuinely love the process of getting my hair and makeup done. Even beyond that, I just love to take care of my skin. I’m always researching different products, and I always try so many different things. I don’t just stick to one face wash or moisturizer," she said.
4. On Her Brows
Though she was reluctant to shape her brows, Kim admits having them professionally done is game-changing. "I look so different when I have my eyebrows done. Anastasia Soare does my brows. For two years she was asking me if she could do them, and I was like, ‘No, I don’t need it,’ because I would just do it myself. But then I let her, and it changed my life—my whole face looked different," Kim said.
5. On Her Lashes

6. On Taking Off Her Makeup

For blemish-free skin, you should never go to bed with makeup on. "My most essential product has got to be Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Night Calming," Kim said. "I need a makeup wipe at all times. That's the only way I take my makeup off."
7. On Contouring
You can't talk about Kim's makeup without mentioning contouring. "I put on all my foundation first," Kim said. "I powder my face, then I put on concealer, and blend it with a pink egg-like sponge. Then I contour all here (she draws an invisible number three on the side off her face)— think of a three. I go cheekbones, under chin, then the top."
