Say what you will about Kim Kardashian West, but her business acumen is something that shouldn't be doubted. From her reality television show, beauty products, and appearances, she knows how to use her image to her advantage, and that's part of the reason she landed her latest cover. Kim Kardashian's Forbes cover is chic and showcases the mogul as the stunning business woman she is. While fans are accustomed to Kardashians' more provocative or artistic images, this gorgeous photo seems to showcase another side of the reality television star that we don't always get to see.
The basis for Kardashian's Forbes cover? Her insanely successful mobile game and incredible social media following. Written on the cover is "Kim Kardashian: She made $45 million from one game." While many may be quick to dismiss Kardashian for what they see as her meteoric and — to some — nonsensical rise to fame, Forbes gives credit where credit is due, and it's reflected in the cover image. Instead of using Kardashian's often risque or avant garde styles, they showcase the more business oriented side of the star and allow that side of her to shine through — because no woman is only one thing.
On the Forbes cover, Kardashian rocks a long-sleeve, scoop neck blouse that's paired with what appears to be a hound's tooth skirt. Accenting the ensemble is a thick black choker that looks perfect on the star.
My personal favorite element of the cover, though? Her beauty look. With a smoked out lower lash line, voluminous lashes, defined brows, and a nude lip, it's signature Kim Kardashian, and it looks fab. So, if you wanted to get Kim Kardashian's Forbes cover makeup look, what would you need?
1. Kohl Liner
Makeup For Ever Kohl Pencil in Deep Black, $18, Sephora
Kardashian's lower waterline is undeniably smoked out, and a kohl pencil is the perfect product that'll allow you to both rim your waterline and create a smoky effect.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, $23, Too Faced
While Kardashian is more than likely wearing false lashes on the cover, if you're wanting a more everyday look, the Better Than Sex mascara is a perfect volumizing product.
3. Anastasia Brow Wiz
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, $21, Anastasia Beverly Hills
Kardashian's brows are gorgeously defined, and a great way to achieve that look is through this Kardashian and Jenner approved product.
4. Nude Gloss
Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake, $22, Too Faced
Leave it to Kardashian to always rock a nude lip. It wouldn't be a signature look without this feature.
