Kim Kardashian Smokey Eye Tutorial
Take a loose powder, like Mac Mineralize Loose Powder (which Kim Kardashian wears herself) and apply it underneath the eye, make sure to avoid concealer line. This is done so when the darker eye makeup is placed on the eye; you can dust it off with the power and prevent dark spots underneath.
Next step is to start applying eye makeup in the form of a light eyeshadow, using the Mac brush 217, all over the eye and slightly above the crease. Do not apply all the way up to the brow bone.
Use Contrast by Mac, or a blue flame shadow. Apply by starting on the outside corner and work around, but focus on the outside corner.
The first shadow you will use is your darkest. Blend into the crease.
Use a Stila black eyeliner to line all around the eye. Line under the eye, with a little bit of eyeshadow, and blend it out. Use a q tip to blend further.
The final step for getting Kim Kardashian eye makeup is to smear and blend the shadow into the crease.
