Kim Kardashian loves makeup, and it shows! Kim said her beauty secrets and makeup must-haves include both high-end and drugstore lotions and products.
“I’m always researching different products, and I always try so many different things,” Kardashian told the Gloss Feb. 24. “I don’t just stick to one face wash or moisturizer.”
Kim said her makeup bag contains the following items:
Kardashian added: “I love Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and Joe Blasco Ultrabase Foundation—it’s a really old school, heavy foundation. My dad got me makeup classes for Christmas when I was like 14 at some Joe Blasco makeup school, and I’ve worn that foundation ever since.”
Kardashian is also a pro at contouring, preferring to rely on bronzers to accentuate her cheekbones and slim her face.
“I always contour my nose, and I love to contour my cheeks—the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit is great for that. For mascara, I think Lancôme makes the best mascaras. Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara is my favorite.”
Unlike some celebrities who complain about getting dolled up, Kardashian loves the whole process of beautifying herself.
“I genuinely love the process of getting my hair and makeup done,” said Kim.“I just love to take care of my skin. I use the Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They take off everything but really gently — even mascara!”
Kardashian, 34, goes more upscale for her face wash. “I use the By Terry Purete de Rose Cleansing Gel because it smells like rose,” she said.
Kim, who has dry skin, opts for thick, hydrating creams. “I love Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale The Rich Cream because I love the scene and the rich creaminess,” said Kim.
“There’s also one that’s from Natura Bisse — the C+C Vitamine Cream. It smells really strongly of orange, and I think it’s nice every once in a while.”
Kim said she treats her psoriasis with at-home laser treatments. They’re not cheap, but they work, she said.
“I have this at-home LED light therapy machine called Quasar MD Plus that I got for my psoriasis because I’ll try anything out,” said Kardashian.
