Oh, to be Kim K. for a day! Celeb makeup artist Patrick Ta, who works with Kim Kardashian, did just that when he gave model Sarah Stage a makeover for a new video on Kardashian’s site and app.
The pro, who also works with Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen, gave Stage, the fit model who posed in her bikini just five weeks after giving birth, Kardashian’s “everyday glam” look. While half-sister Kylie Jenner’s everyday look takes 13 products, Kardashian needs 22 separate items.
Starting with the eyes, Ta applies MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot on her lids. “It prevents the eyeshadow from creasing. You want this makeup to be able to wear all day long,” he says. He tops that with Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation applied with a Beautyblender, then sets it with a loose powder.
Now that the eyes are prepped, Ta begins to create Kardashian’s signature smoky eye with no fewer than three different shades of brown shadow smudged into the creases and along the lash lines. For a touch of shine, he layers on MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Global Glow. “This is actually meant to be a highlighter,” he explains. “I think it’s so pretty that I can just put it on the eyelids.”
Because no Kim Kardashian–inspired makeup is complete without contouring and strobing, Ta applies Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Summer in the hollows of Stage’s cheek, along her hairline and the jawlines. He then brushes Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop on the highest part of her cheekbone.
