Khloe Kardashian Beauty Tips

70-10108-01-1452797512

In celebration of tonight’s Kocktails with Khloe premiere, I’m devoting this post to the best beauty advice straight from everyone’s fav Kardashian. Read on for some awesome tips from Khloe that I can totally vouch for:

Tip 1: Protect your investment.


Going blonde is expensive and requires maintenance to keep it looking beautiful, not brassy. Khloe’s secret to brightening her blonde? Shimmer Lights by Clairol Professional! I can def vouch for this toning shampoo first hand as I discovered Shimmer Lights in hair school (a million years ago) and washed out many heads of highlights with this magic purple potion. And while it’s perfect for my bottle blonde friends, you don’t have to be a blonde to use it. I like to use it to refresh my red color and enhance the cool tones when it fades into Carrot Top territory. 

Tip 2: Shine on.

Khloe (and her flock of sisters) are big fans of the strobe. Khloe has many favs in the highlighter department, including the amazing, tried-and-true Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder. “Kevyn was and still is the king,” Khloe said. Amen, girl.

Tip 3: Expensive doesn’t always equal best.

Khloe loves the Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush – and so do I! Use it for powder, blush, bronzer, you name it. The best part is you can pick this beauty up at Target for a fraction of the price of luxury brushes. I’ll drink to that! 😉

Kim and Khloe Kardashian Celebrate Kardashian Beauty Launch in NYC

Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian

Whoa. So much has happened this week!

On Tuesday night, I was among an exclusive group of beauty editors, industry influencers, bloggers, and other personalities who gathered to celebrate the launch of the Kardashian sisters’ new Kardashian Beauty haircare collection.


Confession: I was silently fangirling over my many of my fellow attendees just as much as I was over Kiki and Koko. Major beauty royalty at this event.

Speaking of royalty, the regal princesses of reality tv were everything I thought they would be. Also, Kim can seriously pull off that lob and Khloe must do at least 14,000 squats a day. (Anyone who has Kim Kardashian ass envy has probably never seen Khloe in person. Bible.)

The best part of the event though? I actually really love these new products.

I am the first to admit that I’m always extremely skeptical of the quality of celeb products, but rest assured, the Kardashians hooked up with the right people to formulate these goodies. The famous sisters partnered with Farouk Systems (best known for CHI and BioSilk) to create the new collection. The elegant branding of the line is paired with packaging that has a prestige feel.

Kardashian Beauty Hair

The hero ingredient of the collection is Black Seed Oil, a nutrient rich treatment and styling aid that rejuvenates and nourishes hair so it appears strong, thick, and shiny. I styled my hair with literally every product today and am happy to report that my favorite products of the bunch are the Take 2 Dry Shampoo, Black Seed Dry Oil, and the Smooth Styler Blow Dry Cream.

I cocktailed the blow dry cream and the oil together and ran it through damp ends before heat styling. I also applied a little extra dry oil to my ends after drying. (Technically you aren’t supposed to do that with thick oils like this, but I’ve never really been a fan of rules. It’ll help tame your split ends if they’re really stubborn.)

The dry shampoo is not as heavy as most others on the market. It absorbs oil effectively and provides a light refresh, adding just enough oomph without all the buildup. It also leaves a lingering fresh scent in the hair that I can still smell as I type this.

All in all,  I think Keeks and Kooks launched a fabulous bunch of products on Tuesday. Order online or check them out in person at your local Ulta!

#INeedSparkle: My Must-Have Products for Ultimate Sparkling

Hello beautiful readers! I’m a firm believer that you should never let anyone dull your sparkle. To help punch up your inner sparkle, I’ve selected my absolute favorite products to help you shimmer, sparkle, and shine on the outside, too!


 

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown I actually have this stuff in every shade, but Ballet Pink and Silver Moon are my favorites. The buildable shadow is super versatile because you can control the level of sparkle! Use just a touch for a subtle hint of shimmer or really pack it on for a glittery night out.

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER Glitters

MUFE Glitter

Sparkle alert! This loose glitter means business. Use an adhesive or bonding agent like Too Faced Glitter Glue Glitter Bonding Eyeshadow Primer and pack this stuff on to get the disco ball effect on your lids.

 

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Not comfortable decking your entire eye out in glitter? Make a statement with a swift stroke of sparkle instead. I adore the Urban Decay glitter eyeliners. You will love them too, promise!
