Kim Kardashian isn't shy about wearing makeup -- and a lot of it! So of course the question on everyone's minds is: What type of look will she go for on her wedding day? Vampy vixen? Old-Hollywood glamour girl? Natural beauty (not so likely)?
Obviously, this is one decision that won't be revealed until the wedding day, but we can certainly weigh in while we wait, mostly to amuse ourselves. Here are some of our favorite makeup looks she's worn, along with commentary and tips from Stila celebrity makeup artist Sarah Lucero. Take a look and tell us which wedding makeup style you think Kim Kardashian should try.
Pretty in Pinks
"Soft pinks and a subtle glow bring out the best version of Kim in a natural way," says Lucero. "It's a timeless look that'll never go out of style." The key here is her dewy skin. It's created with a liquid foundation and a touch of luminizer on the tops of her cheekbones, which highlights her amazing bone structure, says Lucero. A golden shimmer shadow brightens her eyes without overpowering them. Pink blush on the apples of her cheeks and a kiss of natural pink gloss pull everything together. To get the look, use these essentials:
Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer, $22
This little bit of liquid bling gives your skin just enough glow to look naturally radiant. Use a dab above your cheekbones to make them stand out.
Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink, $22
For a flush that's flirty, sweep this soft petal pink on the apples of your cheeks.
Bold and Sultry
This is all about eye drama, says Lucero. Buffing and blending smoky shadows in shades of pewter, espresso and gunmetal close to the lash line, make her come-hither stare even sexier. Kim's cheeks are contoured with bronzer and her glossy nude lips don't compete with the intensity of her eyes. To get the look, try these essentials:
Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio in Dark Room, $14
Three sultry shades, opal, granite and black, have all the impact to create high drama. The more shadow you apply, the bolder the look.
Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss in Natural Boost, $4
Moisture-enhancing benefits keep your lips hydrated with a hint of color that takes their natural shade up a notch.
Lashes, lashes and more lashes are the defining moment here. Obviously, these are falsies and likely the glue-on variety (lash extensions look more natural). Since Kim's flutter is so full, the rest of her face is subdued in petal pinks so all the attention is drawn to her eyes, says Lucero. To get the look, try these essentials:
Shu Uemura Soft Cross False Eyelashes, $23
The unique crisscross design makes these falsies look like real fringe only thicker, longer and more glamorous.
MAC Lipstick in Please Me, $14
If ever there was a perfect shade of pink, this muted rosy-petal tone is the ideal hue. Plus, you can count on color that lasts.
Red lips, bold brows and winged eyeliner bring visions of Old-Hollywood to mind. Liquid black liner, drawn thickly along the upper lash line and winged slightly, creates a cat-like eye. But the real focus here is on Kim's bright red lip, says Lucero. "If she does go with this look, hopefully she'll choose a matte formula lipstick so it won't end up all over her groom!" she says. To get the look, try these essentials:
Lipstick Queen Red Sinner Matte Lipstick, $22
The pigment in this formula is incredibly saturated, and even though it's a matte, the finish is creamy enough to make your pucker silky smooth.
Lancome Artliner Precision Point EyeLiner in Black, $29
The goof-proof go to for defining your eyes, this liquid liner has a felt tip to make precision lining a cinch with a formula that won't budge.
"Shimmery, gray-blue shadow worn on the lid and in the outer corners makes Kim's eyes truly shine," says Lucero. "She'll literally glow by candlelight at an evening reception." A nude lip and natural flush let her eyes have all the glory. To get the look, try these essentials:
NARS Eyeshadow in Heart of Glass, $23
This true icy blue shimmer shadow already imparts rich color, but for more intensity, wet your eye shadow brush before applying.
Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude, $6
Rich matte color glides effortlessly across your lips, leaving your pout nude and improved.
So tell me, which look is your favorite for Kim? Would you wear any of these faces on your wedding day?
