"I feel pretty--oh so pretty. I feel pretty and witty and bright, and I pity any girl who isn't me tonight."
She didn't exactly say it that way, but Kim Kardashian came--ahem--pretty close. She recently revealed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that she's a true girly-girl who loves dressing up, and experimenting with her makeup and hair. "I'm so critical [about my looks], but I do feel pretty," she confessed.
She wouldn't admit to being beautiful, but her legions of fans would probably disagree. Kardashian, who has more than 15 million followers on Twitter, is known for her heart-shaped face, flawless complexion and voluptuous body. Plus, don't forget about her glossy cascading locks.
However, beautynistas praise the reality TV star most for her pout and peeps. Those almond-shaped eyes and pleasingly plump lips have almost single-handedly redefined Hollywood glamour as we know it.
Kardashian knows exactly how to emphasize her best facial features. She favors flirty, spider lashes, and soft--almost colorless--super shiny lip shades. To mimic this look, we've assembled products that help awaken the inner Kim Kardashian in you. Bible!
