First I applied the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin all over the lid and into the crease. Using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette, I applied Stark all over the lid, and Skimp on the center of my lid. I took Frisk, Cover, + Primal and gradually deepened the crease. I also used a combination of Stark and Cover on the lower lashline, and Skimp on the browbone. Next, I used MAC Soft Brown to help blend the crease out, and to warm up the colors a bit. Then, taking MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, I created a winged liner. Last, I used the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara to amp up my lashes. Really pile on that mascara for the quintessential Kardashian look. Feel free to add false lashes, too!
After you apply your ~flawless~ base (because the Kardashians are all about flawless skin!), use a matte contour powder or bronzer to contour your face and add some warmth to the skin. I used the Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Natural. Then use a rose-mauve blush on your cheekbones (I used Le Metier de Beaute's Traviata Blushing Bronze Duet). You may also choose to use a highlighter here, but my skin is already pretty oily so I skipped this step.
Now for the gorgeous plummy mauve lip! Kylie clearly overdraws her lips so they look fuller, but I don't like my lips looking like that so I skipped that. First I used MAC Soar Lip Liner to line my lips and fill them in. Then I took my Too Faced Melted Nude Lipstick and applied it lightly over the liner. To top it off, I used the La Bella Figura Hydrating Lip Color in Lissette La Coquette to achieve the perfect color for this look.
And that's it! Pretty easy for event makeup, if you ask me. Check out what the other ladies of The Beauty Council did for their VMAs inspired look!
