So, what does it take to look like Kim Kardashian? A couple thousand, for starters. Into the Gloss recently interviewed Kim for an in-depth look at the star's beauty routine, and scored a full list of the products she uses regularly—which we added up to a whopping $2,000. Sure, there are $2 Neutrogena makeup remover towelettes. But then there's a $455 Guerlain moisturizer.
Despite the many pricey products—like an $85 SPF from La Mer and a $53 MAC brush—Kim's overall high-low routine is surprisingly low-key in many ways. She cleanses with wipes and a gel face wash and follows up with moisturizer; rich creams at night, products with SPF by day. Of course, there are plenty of face-perfecting products, including the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit ($40) to create those famous Kardashian cheekbones. Oh, and for a while at least, she did her own brows.
"Anastasia Soare [of Anastasia Beverly Hills] does my brows," Kim told Into the Gloss. "For two years she was asking me if she could do them, and I was like, ‘No, I don’t need it,’ because I would just do it myself. But then I let her, and it changed my life—my whole face looked different. I used to make them really square in the middle, and she rounded them a little bit."
As for her hair, it turns out Kim might be a lot more like us than we thought—avoiding shampoo for days at a time? Check. Of course, her reasoning behind that schedule might be a little different from ours.
"For my hair, I don’t wash it every day," she says. "We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flat iron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair. Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail, and on the fifth day is when you wash it."
