Happy Birthday, Kim Kardashian! The reality TV star is celebrating her 36th birthday today, and we decided to have our own celebration by taking a look back at some of our favorite beauty looks from Kim. Ahead, check out Kim’s best hair and makeup combos over the years, and let us know which look gets your pick in the comments.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Kim Kardashian, 36, on her birthday than by breaking down some of our favorite beauty looks she’s sported. The social media star and queen of selfies may gravitate towards chiseled cheekbones and a glossy nude lip, but she’s certainly been switching things up over the past few years.
Focusing on her more recent looks, we have to include when Kim shocked us all by dyeing her hair blonde ahead of Paris Fashion Week in 2015. Though the platinum shade didn’t last long, Kim sported her blonde lob in tousled undone waves and slicked back looks that were a fun switch from her usual dark brunette hue.
Another look we love on Kim are her braided updos. Though she tends to sport braided ponytails and boxer braid styles when she’s relaxing at home or away on vacation, every so often she’ll sport a braid for a red carpet event like she did at the 2015 LACMA Gala. One of our favorite looks, a then-pregnant Kim wore her hair slicked back in a low pony that was braided into a fishtail style, and she finished the look off with a dark berry lip that we rarely see her wear.
More recently, Kim had everyone talking when she debuted a blunt lob cut just a few months back. The asymmetrical style turned out to be a wig courtesy of hairstylist Chris Appleton, but we loved the sleek and modern look.
And, of course, we can’t finish out our list without mentioning Kim’s signature long, dark locks and golden glow. Whether wearing her hair in tousled waves or poker straight, Kim’s bronzed makeup is instantly recognizable. Her contoured cheekbones with highlighted and bronzed skin is so popular in fact, that her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic recently did a whole breakdown of the look on her app. To complete her go-to beauty look, Mario tends to keep the eyes neutral, focusing on lengthened and volumized lashes and a glossy nude lip to finish.
