Kylie is giving off some serious rock star vibes here, and we’re totally digging it! To get her exact look, Hrush started by mixing Ko Gen Do Aqua Foundation with Cover FX Custom Cover Drops for all-over even coverage. Next, to highlight and sculpt her cheekbones, Hrush mixed together two complimentary shades from the Dermacolor Camouflage Make-Up Palette, and applied it along the sides of Kylie’s nose and under her eyes, making sure to gently blend it with a slightly damp BeautyBlender for a flawless, airbrush effect. She then repeated those same steps along her brow bones, upper lip and chin.
To create Kylie’s signature contoured look, Hrush then used Chanel Tan De Soleil Bronzing Makeup Base along the bridge of her nose, along the bottom of her cheekbones and across the jawline, making sure to apply it in light, downward strokes that she then gently blended in with the rest of the foundation. To finish her skin, she then dusted Kylie’s face with Laura Mercier Setting Powder to help lock in her look.
To create her exact smokey eye, Hrush used the MAC Feline Eye Pencil to line the upper lash line before softly tracing it with a black eyeshadow. She then suggests that you use a brown eyeshadow to lightly smudge out any perfect lines in order to create a slightly softer, rock star look. Next, using a light pink eyeshadow, Hrush carefully blended out the edges of the brown eyeshadow along the corners of the eye, before applying Tom Ford Bronzer along the bottom lash line. Next, blend the edges of the eyeshadow from top to bottom using Cinnamon from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit, making sure that everything is well blended throughout.
On the cheeks, Hrush applied NARS Orgasm Blush using a large, soft makeup brush. She then applied a strip of fake lashes, making sure to get them as close to Kylie’s upper lash line as possible in order to create a more natural look. Next, Hrush used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish to brighten the inner corners of Kylie’s eyes. To amp up her lashes, she then applied Marc Jacobs Mascara, making sure to focus on the center of the lashes. She then applied NYX Slide On Pencil in Golden Bronze along the waterline to complete the soft, smokey eye look.
