It's hard to believe that a woman with a full-time glam squad would ever have to do her own makeup, but apparently even Kim Kardashian West sometimes has to take time out of her busy day of being a mom/mogul to blend her own foundation. On Tuesday, KKW shared a video on her app detailing the entire 90-million (ok, 10ish)-step process that she uses when she does her own makeup, and shared her secrets about what she keeps in her makeup bag when she's on the road. So what makeup products does Kim Kardashian use?
According to Kardashian, it only takes five to ten minutes for her to achieve her everyday look (unless BFF Jonathan Cheban is distracting her....). Clearly, she has her routine down pat, which is probably why she's known to be the most on-time of the Kardashian/Jenner siblings and still manages to always looks #flawless.
Admittedly (and kind of unsurprisingly) Kim needs a lot of products to achieve her over-the-top perfect look — she named 11 in the video, to be exact — but a lot of them are actually surprisingly affordable (some even come from drugstores!).
Check out some of the least bank-breaking items below, and for a complete list of what she uses and a link to the video explaining how she does her makeup, visit KimKardashianWest.com.
1. Neutrogena Night Calming Face Wipes
Kardashian makes sure to always wash her face in the morning and at night, but uses these makeup removing pads right before applying her moisturizer and foundation to make sure she's working with a smooth, clean surface.
2. Benefit Cosmetics High Beam
Before Kardashian puts on her foundation (Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda - $200) she often likes to put on this highlighter from Benefit to add a little extra shimmer. She suggests blending the product on your hand before applying it to your face to achieve an even glow.
3. Make Up Forever Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Cream
Kardashian likes to layer this creamy concealer from Make Up Forever on top of a drier one for full coverage and a dewy look.
4. Beauty Blender
See, I told you — stars really are just like us! Kardashian swears by her beautyblender (don't we all?!) to blend concealer, but suggests wetting it before use for the best results.
5. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
Because one highlighter isn't enough for the queen of the perfect complexion, Kardashian finishes off her look with Becca's shimmering skin perfector on top of her concealer.
