Makeup artist Joyce Bonelli is best friends with the Kardashians– and she talks with us about working with Kim and her whole family!
Joyce Bonelli helps the Kardashian family get gorgeously camera-ready! We told you about her favorite products to use on Kim; now, we get the scoop on Joyce about what it’s like to work with this famous family!
Kim hasn’t changed a bit!
“I met Kim on a photo shoot. It was before the show came out, so I was like, “Who’s Kim Kardashian?”" You might think that fame would have changed Kim, but Joyce says it’s not so: “Some people get crazy, but Kim is the exact same person she was then: so sweet and caring and polite.”
She convinces Kim to mix up her look!
Joyce loved the look she created for Kim for the 2011 Oscars: “It was navy, which was so different, because it’s more on the funky side of what she likes. She was totally freaked out by it, but she ended up loving it when she saw pictures later. I always do a smoky eye, so I wanted to change it up a little bit. It’s a navy shadow by Burberry, mixed with black.”
She’s so close to the whole family!
Joyce loves the whole family, and since she works on all of them she’s become close to each family member. “I do everybody, even Kendall and Kylie. They’re the most amazing family of individuals, and all of them are really good friends of mine. They’re all so different, but I like to do a lot of different things, so we each have our own thing in common. Kourtney and I go shopping for house stuff because we’re both really into that right now. I’m so close to them– they’re like family.”
She shares the family’s biggest beauty secret!
What’s the best part of the Kardashian clan? Their eyelashes! Joyce says, “The whole family, they all have the most amazing lashes. We do put false lashes on for camera reasons, but they actually don’t even need them. Even Mason has them! I want to cut his lashes and make a strip lash. They all get them from their mom, and now grandma [Kris Jenner]– just crazy long and full lashes.”
