Kim Kardashian was absolutely glowing at the Met Gala in NYC on May 1, and we know the exact skincare routine that she did before hitting the red carpet. Find out to get her gorgeous skin below!
In an interview provided by Kiehl’s, her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic explained Kim Kardashian‘s Met Ball makeup look and the inspiration behind it:
“[Kim]’s been feeling a very clean and relaxed vibe lately, and I have, as well. She wore a really clean dress, simple and white and beautiful, and she wanted to feel and look like herself. I added a little white matte color to her eyes to pop the dress a bit. Nothing too edgy. Rei Kawakubo does a lot of clean skin on the runway, and I was inspired by that. We created a really nice base with the complexion, using more tan colors, and kept the eyes really simple and lash-y.”
There is no great makeup without great skin underneath. Mario used Kiehl’s Skincare, which he has been using for years. Here’s how to copy Kim Kardashian’s skincare routine for a gorgeous summer glow!
“I applied Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask beforehand and used Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate on her cheekbones for extra glow,” Mario said. “I prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30 and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25 in Untinted, which is a favorite of mine.”
Along with her glowing skin, he wanted to emphasize her eyes, so he said he “used CHANEL Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in Undertone all over her lids as a base of color. Then, to create a thicker texture, I layered CHANEL Ombre Première Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Visone in the crease and a little along lower lashline. I applied CHANEL Ombre Première Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Sable, but not too close to the inner corner. I kept it more on the outside, with very little on the lower lashline.”
“I added some CHANEL Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Noir from the center of her eyelids out, slightly winging at the ends. Then, tons of CHANEL Le Volume Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.”
For extra flawless skin, Mario says: “I applied CHANEL Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation in 50 Beige with my fingertips, then blended with a brush. It was pretty simple. We did a little bronzer on her cheeks and along the hairline and forehead….I love the foundation: It went on really beautifully.”
Mario also shared an application tip if you wear foundation: “At home, most people tend to apply foundation with their fingers. Try buffing it in with a round foundation brush in circles. It tends to have a great finish.”
