World-renowned reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian has quickly become a modern day beauty icon. Naomi Mahmud and I caught up with Kim to get the inside scoop on her coveted beauty regime and latest fragrance, True Reflection.
In the morning, I like to keep it simple. I use PerfectSkin, a three step skincare regime with a cleanser, toner, and repair and protect which I do everyday. Next, I style my hair then pin it back while I do my makeup. If it is a big red carpet event, it usually takes 2 ½ hours. We really make getting ready fun!
My everyday makeup bag items consists of my current favourites: A Tinted Moisturiser by Laura Mercier, it’s great for getting flawless skin. My favourite bronzer, Smashbox Bronze Lights, it is a great matte bronzer that doesn’t have a shimmer in it which I think is important because sometimes shimmer can make you look oily. I use Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara to create really big lashes. I love Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray, it makes your legs look flawless and is great for covering my psoriasis. I also carry my new fragrance True Reflection around with me – it is sultry, mysterious and rich, perfect for night-time.
As for my hair, I love Moroccan Oil, it keeps it really smooth. I also like to use Biosilk hair products. I try not to wash my hair everyday and keep it tied back in a ponytail. I have a great team who often travel with me and help me with my hair and make-up. When I was in London for my fragrance launch, Rob Sheppy did my make-up. He’s great!
When it comes to my health, I really love QuickTrim supplements and make sure I eat healthily, and exercise regularly. I try to work out everyday in LA and then do push-ups and sit-ups in my hotel rooms when abroad.
I’m really excited about my new fragrance. I wanted True Reflection to have a bit of a twist compared to my previous scents. I designed the bottle before I designed the fragrance. My other fragrance bottles were very circular so I wanted this to be different and more angular. I love the shape. Gardenia is a constant ingredient in all my fragrances, but I wanted this one to be a little more rich and layered and to reflect experiences I’ve been through and all the different dimensions of my personality. The scent is sultry, mysterious and long lasting. You can purchase it exclusively at Debenhams.
