How to Get Illuminated Skin like Kim KardashianJul 11, 2012 @ 2:10 pm
The trick to Kim Kardashian‘s flawless finish? Reversing your beauty routine! While many opt to smooth on foundation before applying concealer, switching up the order ensures that the concealed area won’t jump out at you, and hides any hint of dark undereye circles. Be sure to choose a concealer that is half a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, as anything too fair will look chalky. Try Benefit’s Boi-ing ($20; benefitcosmetics.com), a super-blendable cream which comes in five versatile colors. Dab the product right under your eyes and blend downward in a v-formation that lines up with the sides of your nose. Then, fill in the rest of your face with a lightweight foundation to blend any harsh edges and even out the rest of your skin. Our favorite? YSL’s Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation ($55; barneys.com), which is airy enough for summertime wear.
