It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from infamous divorcée Kim Kardashian, but here she is on the cover of another women’s magazine. Kim has always been one of those celebrities who, annoyingly, still looks gorge without the heavy makeup we usually see her in. So, it comes as no surprise that a magazine would get her to forgo the made-up look for a “natural” cover spread.
There are no “makeup-free” claims here, but Kim Kardashian, whose makeup artists are usually pretty heavy-handed with the eyelashes and lipstick, is looking uncharacteristically natural and a little dirty in this cover shoot for Allure.
In case you were wondering, here’s what they did and didn’t do to her face, from Allure:
To achieve this, the makeup artist skipped both mascara and eye shadow, and instead simply drew a red-brown pencil on the upper and lower lids. She then swirled a bronzy cream foundation on Kardashian’s cheekbones and dabbed on a pink-beige lipstick. To give her a dewy look, Farolfi misted water and Rodin Olio Lusso onto Kardashian’s skin.
While we wouldn’t necessarily call this shoot “natural”–rolling around in the sand in a wet t-shirt and a rope doesn’t quite qualify as such and the oiliness might be a little excessive–it’s nice to see someone’s natural beauty highlighted instead of made up and photoshopped.
