Confession: I Am A Kardashian-aholic

Kardashian Mashup. I also enjoy shows with sisters. People always pick on Khloe when she's the voice of reason.

One day, I was having brunch with my good friend C and I was telling her that I had stayed up all night watching episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.  She told me that I reminded her of Kim Kardashian, to which I was utterly flattered (“Really?! OMG, not like Vanessa Hudgens?”) because those girls are gorgeous (even though Kim’s initial claim to fame is a sex tape).  As far as guilty pleasures go, there is nothing like laying like a deadbeat on my mother’s sofa and watching a Kardashian marathon on the E! network.  I find socialites highly entertaining.   

The Kardashians also have a covetable high-fashion style – monochromatic black with pops of glitz (think sequins), heavy black eye makeup, smooth dark hair and those sky high platforms.  Let’s break it down shall we?

Black Dramatic Sexy Eyes – Reserve your black sexy eyes for evenings that begin after 11pm.  I know Kris Jenner loves hers for lunch but TRUST.  A camera crew and bright lights wash you out.  You are not on a reality show. 

  1. Cover both your lids with a few dabs of concealer followed by a light dust of powder.  This helps to keep colour in place.
  2. Using an eyeshadow brush cover the entire lid with a chocolate brown eye shadow.
  3. Line the top of the lashline and under the eye using a black eye pencil.
  4. Using an eyeshadow brush layer black eyeshadow all over the lid.  Using the black eyeshadow, apply more in the crease and outer eyelid creating an ombre effect.
  5. Take a finer shadow brush, dab in the chocolate shadow to blend and smudge the eyeliner.
  6. Finish with faux eyelashes or with two generous coats of black mascara.  Ta-da! Who can resist?

How pretty? Sooo pretty. A toned down version of the heavy smokey eye.

Some Kardashian styling cues to emulate:

A Kardashian would love the structured details of this LBD: Alice + Olivia 'Tatum' Sheath

Better than a disco-ball: Velvet Ombre Sequin Blazer breaks up all black.

Are those jewels on your booties or are you just happy to see me? Report Signature.
