International celebrity makeup artist Dimitri James of Skinn Cosmetics speaks what we are all thinking: Kim Kardashian has truly redefined sexy for her generation. With her fierce curves and signature smokey eyes, she is an undeniable fashion and beauty icon. As her nuptials are fast approaching, James predicts Kim will keep to her smokey eye for the big-day, but surprise us with an elegant edge.
The date is set, the plans are made and the wedding bells are soon to chime. Kim Kardashian has had a whirlwind romance with fiancé Kris Humphries and their wedding is already the talk of the town. Predictions are flooding the news about her gown and her location, but not much has been said about her marriage day makeup. Dimitri James’ lady-like, smokey eye prediction comes with a step-to-step guide to its recreation.
Step 1: Add the Smoke
Cover the lid fully in a smoky grey-brown shadow to lay the foundation. Then add a darker carbon shade to contour the crease and corners of the lid. Take your time to blend in the colors for a fabulous and effortless look.
Step 2: Outline the Eye
Use a shiny black smudgestick liner to outline the eye rim and tear line to make the eye truly pop. Making sure to smudge the black liner creates a dramatic, but not over done look.
Step 3: Emphasize the Brow
Highlight the brow bone with an Ivory tone shadow for insured intensity in your eye look.
Step 4: Long Lashes
Add a full band of lashes to fringe the upper lashes as well as single lash extensions to fill in the lower lash line to achieve full eyelashes you won’t be able to help but bat.
Step 5: Flawless Skin
Copy Kim’s always-flawless coverage with a plasma foundation and cotton & mineral powder. You’ll feel as beautiful as you should on your big day, night out or laidback brunch.
Step 6: Blush & Kiss
Add a soft beige pink blush to give subtle coloring to the cheeks and use a creamy, glossy lip tone to create undeniably kissable lips. When creating an intense eye look, be sure to play down the lips with light pinks or nude colors.
Without a doubt we will all be glued to our TVs to see what angle Kim will take with her wedding day look, but it is safe to say that the smokey eye will be present when the vows are passed.
