Kim Kardashian: The Star’s 5-Minute Glam Routine Revealed

Just like most of us, there are times when Kim Kardashian doesn’t even have time for a lengthy glam-up routine. It’s always fantastic to learn of new shortcuts to achieving a flawless and red-carpet-ready appearance with only a fraction of time needed.

Kim Kardashian has got a great beauty hack to get you out the door while looking fab, in 5 minutes flat. Us Weekly shares the secret that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has revealed.

Kim K recently posted a video to her social media platform that involves her go-to makeup artist detailing his tricks to having Kim prepped for paparazzi in no time at all. In the video, Mario Dedivanovic says that the way to shave off time is to get more out products that you’re already using.

“Sometimes you only have a few minutes … and there are a few shortcuts you can do to get ready and still look put-together and polished. You’re just going to take that same product that you contoured your skin with and you just use it as an eyeshadow.”

While chatting, Kim’s makeup guru begins to apply the bronzer which he contoured the star’s cheekbones with to her eyelids and jawline as well as temples. The product used for the multipurpose application is Rodial’s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder.

Dedivanovic continued to describe the benefits to this trick and his shared techniques used on Kardashian.

“When you don’t have that much time, and you have to skip a lot of steps, this is the perfect way to do that,” the L.A.-based makeup artist noted, adding that it’s also a space-saving tactic. “[It’s great] if you don’t want to lug around shadows, or lots of [other] products, and you want to do a monochromatic look.”

To finish off the complementary look, Kim’s artist then adds a bit of highlighter to her cheeks for a shimmery effect, as well as to her brow bones. Kardashian then gets an application of peach-colored blush for a pop of color, mascara for a dramatic eye and berry-shaded lip color.

The final moments of the shared clip involve Kim K sharing her opinion about how her makeup artist did with the quick transformation.

“It is really pretty.”

And Kim is always sure to bring the pretty and the glam when she heads out to flaunt her post-baby bod. The star has lost a ton of weight since giving birth to Saint West late last year, so is all about getting primped and fashionable for her nights out, when she can show off her frame in her latest couture clothing, courtesy of Balmain.

Most recently Kardashian stepped out looking gorgeous in New York City. The Daily Mail recalls Kim’s fashion selection for the evening.

“Kim, 35, squeezed her ample curves into the bodycon number which was sleeveless in style and featured a clasp trim running down the full length. She lifted her petite frame with a pair of nude heeled sandals while she slipper her arms into an oversized silk bomber jacket and wore it off her shoulders. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was as impeccably done up as always, favouring professional contouring and a pink lip while her hair looked super-glossy and was lightly tousled to give it some extra volume.”

Kim Kardashian was out on the town with good friend Jonathan Cheban who she met with for dinner at Nobu. The pair left the upscale restaurant separately so to not draw too much attention to themselves. Since giving birth to her second child, Kim has been putting in more effort to stay out of the spotlight. When she’s in it, she always looks impeccable.
