Video Quick Tip #60 - October 26, 2010

Is there anyone out there that doesn't want to look hot n' sexy this Halloween?? We didn't think so!

In this week's Quick Tip, Brett takes blond-haired, fair-skinned Aynsley Bubbico from Greek
and turns her into exotic Hollywood siren Kim Kardashian.

The key steps to the Kim K. look are smokey eyes, a bold brow and nude lips. Here's the breakdown:
  • Bronze up! Bronze your body and decollete with a body bronzing spray like Vanitymark Summerskin. For your face, use a tan foundation like Lorac Natural Performance in #7.
  • Highlight the eyes and lift the cheekbones! Lighten the whole eye area with a concealer like Cle de Peau Concealer in Beige. Use a brush and place under the eye and out towards the temple, and above the brow area to pop out the cheekbone.
  • Add contours to the cheeks with a darker foundation - try MAC NC45 Full Coverage and brush on a straight line from the temple under the cheekbone towards the apple and blend down. Exaggerate it - it'll be nighttime!
  • Add contours to the eyes - apply MAC Cork into the crease of the eye and towards the inner eyebrow. Take a thin, tight brush and apply MAC Print directly into the crease of the lid and extend out to mimic an almond eye shape. Also apply close to the upper and lower lashline. Build out the Paint shade to give a nice, dark contour to the lid.
  • Fake a strong brow with a dark brown brow pencil like Vanitymark's Dark Choco and move your arch up and back by drawing on top of the natural brow line and extending out to copy Miz Kardashian's arches. Square off the inside edge of the brow for a strong and clean look.
  • Warm up with pink! Kim loves pink - use any sherbert pink shade of blush and go over the Cork shadow and along the cheek contours. Add interest to the eye area by placing a card or straight-edge next to the eye and patting on the pink blush from the outer corner of the eye to the temple.
  • Line the eyes with a soft and dark black pencil like MAC Smolder. Sculpt out the eye shape by rimming the inside and outside of the lashline. Stick super close to the lashline and trace the line from the inner corner all the way out. Keep the line on the upper and lower lashes really tight and crisp.
  • Add a shimmery shadow like MAC Idol Eyes to the lower lid with a wet brush across from the tear duct to the outer edge. Dries to a great finish!
  • Add lash falsies - it's Halloween so go big or go home! Buy spikey picket fence-style lashes to really stand out. After applying, add lots of mascara, like L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon.
  • Highlight cheeks with an irridescent shade like Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. Just dab on the apples of the cheeks for a beautiful glow.
  • Kim loves a nude lip like MAC Brew. Use the shade all over the lip and then top with gloss.
Finish with a dark haired wig and a curve-hugging dress - now you're good to go! Happy Halloween!
