Steal the Look: Kim Kardashian's Makeup for her 27th Birthday

One of our readers, Princess052091, requested that we do a makeup breakdown for Kim Kardashian on her 27th birthday...the look is from 2007 but in my personal opinion, its a beautiful look to ring in 2009 due to the warm, shimmery metallics on the eyes. Luckily, from her blog, we already know some the favorite products that Kim uses so its not difficult to replicate this look.

To get Kim's look:

Eyes: Even out the eyelids with a cream eyeshadow that matches the natural color of your eyelids. Kim uses MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, a nude beige color. If your skin is more tan, try MAC Paint Pot in Indianwood, a metallic bronze or MAC Paint in Bamboom, a beige brown color.
Line both top and bottom lashlines, including the bottom waterline, with a smudgy black eyeliner - Kim likes Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx. Apply a shimmery gold eyeshadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Goldmine all over the lid up until the crease. Apply a champagne colored eyeshadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Nylon to the browbone. Apply a chocolate brown shadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Tempting in the crease. Drag down the brown eyeshadow to lightly shade underneath the lower lashes and to define and elongate the outer "v" of your eyes. For a little more drama, wet your brush with MAC Mixing Medium and apply a gold pigment like MAC Pigment in Old Gold to the middle of the eyelids.
Outline the eyes again with black eye pencil for definition. Finish with black mascara - Kim likes layering MAC Zoom Mascara in Zoomblack and Lancome Hypnose Mascara in Deep Black. Kim is definitely wearing false eyelashes in these photos so if you're up for it, stack some on!! I like Ardell's false lashes. I also just like using Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara for fake looking lashes without actually using false lashes.

Cheeks: MAC Blush in Gingerly, which Kim uses, is perfect for the peachy tan look that she has in the photos. For a little more definition or for darker skin tones that need a little more color, apply a bronzer in the hollows of the cheeks and MAC Blush in Gingerly to the apples. Blend the blush and bronzer together.

Lips: For a very soft pink lip like the one in the photos, Kim uses MAC Lipliner in Stripdown, MAC Lipstick in Angel, a light frosty pink, and NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight, a candy pink, on top. For darker skin tones, try MAC Lipstick in Sweetie, a rosy pink, topped with MAC Lip Glass in Pinkarat, soft-toned pink with gold.
