Kim K Makeup: Halloween 2015

It's no secret that Kim K is probably the face of the highlighting and contouring movement going on right now. I call it a movement because you literally see everyone attempting this technique and quite frankly has COMPLETELY changed the look of some people's face. 

Highlighting and Contouring only looks scary but it doesn't have to be.

The idea is to brighten up the under eye are in an effort to bring more light you want accentuated and contour the areas you don't. Typically you will highlight under your eyes to make them brighter and hide dark circles, the chin and forehead. You would contour the cheeks and under the chin.....especially if your like me with a little face chub to hide. 
So for my Halloween party Saturday night I mustered up all my fabulousness,  got as naked as possible and beat the heck out of my face to give you all this Kim K realness! I purchased this dress a while ago, last worn HERE, and never truly had any intentions of leaving the house in it without some serious laying and styling. Then here comes Halloween in all it's non judgemental splendor and took the opportunity to wear it out the house as Kim K herself. It was black and flattering while allowing me to wear spanx and a jacket to hide my insecurities. Score and Score!
To ensure my makeup was on point I used a mixture of products old and new to me. Thanks to my friends over at Ulta for sending me the Amazing Cosmetics face primer, concealers and setting powder to try. 

I used the caramel concealer under my eyes, Bobby Brown foundation stick in walnut to contour and a mixture of the Amazing Cosmetics translucent power and Ben Nye Banana power to set. This makeup did not budge all night long and I think it turned out perfect. Oh and the 20 minutes it took to apply these wispy false individual lashes was totally worth it for the perfect Kim K flirty eye.
 It was seriously hard to NOT smile all night long. It's totally not my personality, I STAY smiling in pics. :-D
