Illuminated Skin

Sometimes a slight change in your beauty routine makes all the difference. While many opt to smooth on foundation before applying concealer, the trick to achieving Kim Kardashian’s illuminated skin is to reverse the formula. We love how her complexion has no hint of dark undereye circles, but the concealed area doesn’t jump out at you. Be sure to choose a concealer that is half a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, as anything too fair will look chalky. Dab the product right under your eyes and blend downward in a v-formation that lines up with the sides of your nose. You can also swipe a touch of the concealer along the bridge of your nose to give it a more contoured appearance. Then, fill in the rest of your face with a tinted moisturizer or lightweight foundation to blend any harsh edges and even out the rest of your skin.
