The Khardashian Phenomenon
By Heather Polyi Owner/Lead Artist Glam Spot NJ
Kim Khardashian seems to always look flawless in every photo!
Is she human???
I have uncovered evidence, she is in fact... HUMAN!
This is Kim, without makeup!
(P.s you are still beautiful Kim)
However like all of us, with makeup, your natural beauty is enhanced!
Do not get confused, a natural look, isn't even close to looking natural, as in... not made up!
This is Kim in mid contour!
She TWEETED These pics herself, and CoCo Perez shared them on the web!
So, What on earth does she use??????

Powder: Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder to set the foundation.
Bronzer: MAC bronzer in Refined Golden around the hairline and hollows of cheeks to add warmth and contour.
Highlighter: Giella's EYE M GLAM highlighter at giella.com. To get the dewy and radiant glow, apply to brow bone and inner corners of eyes and on the bridge of your nose, across cheek bones, cupids bow and on decolletage.
Blush: Josie Maran Blush in Blossom on apples of cheeks.
Eyeshadows: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blaze on the eyelid
MAC Eyeshadow in Malt in the crease
EYE M GLAM highlighter on the brow bones.
Eyeliners: Dior liquid style liner in Noir Black on the upper lash line

Other options... NARS sheer glow foundation in Barcelona applied with a sponge.
Under eyes, use Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer in Medium Vanilla.
Set the face with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder in #2 using very little.
Brows are filled in with Brow Sculpting Pencil by Sephora, in Medium. Brush them through with the opposite end of the pencil once filled in.
Eyes – Sweep Josie Maran Eyeshadow in Vintage all over the lid. On the crease and also smoked along the lower lashline, use Cacao Eyeshadow, also by Josie Maran. Line the upper lash line with Sephora's Doe Eyed Felt eyeliner in Black. L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on top and bottom lashes. For some added drama, use the long individual false lashes by Ardell on the outer upper corners.
Warm up and frame the face with Smashbox bronzer in Suntan Matte.
Also brush some on the hollows of the cheeks.
Sweep NYC New York Color Color Wheel in Peach Glow on the apples of the cheeks and a bit across the forehead and chin.
To get that gorgeous, glowing skin, use Giella's EYE M GLAM highlighter.
Brush it on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and right on the cupids bow of upper lip. I also used it on her brow bones and inner corner of her eyes.
Line lips with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Heavy (shimmery nude shade). Use Captivating Coral lipstick by Motives and follow with Covergirl Wetslicks gloss in Fig.
Kim has been seen wearing looks by Scott Barnes and many other sought after Make up artists.
Let me just say that this is not a fail safe list... your color selections require them to match YOUR skin....
And P.S they don't always look AMAZING even on Kim!
She is often over contoured!!!!!!!!!!!!
It should come with a warning label... Do Not Try This At Home!
But, if you dare....
Let us know...
With Love and Glamour,
