Ready For Her Close-Up: Kim Kardashian
As the ever beautiful Kim Kardashian and her sisters prepare to launch their own make-up range, we wonder what's in store...
It was announced last month that the Kardashian sisters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe are to launch their own make-up line in the US.
Khroma Beauty - a not so sophisticated attempt to hammer home the fact that they really do like the letter K - will launch in the US in December.
It will provide legions of Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans with the tools to, well, keep up with the Kardashians. The range will include something called a 'Kardazzle Compact', which I quite frankly hope is a face powder and not a frightening take on the Vajazzle.
I can't wait to see pictures of the make-up collection, but let's hope it's tastefully done. Like with anything, in cosmetics there can be too much of a good thing. The highly made-up Kim Kardashian, the most famous of the sisters, has established herself as a make-up loving mega-brand in her own right, and with this she sometimes gets it right and other times not so much. Too much of a smoky eye, too much nude lipstick and too much self tan are cosmetic crimes committed quite frequently, however if there's only one thing I can say, it's that this lady knows how to use a highlighter.
For decades highlighters have been a mainstay of make-up artists' kits and over the last few years have slowly trickled down into the mainstream make-up market. Their uses are multiple; a quick touch of one on the tops of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose can very quickly transform your skin from flat to 3D. You could even mix little with your foundation and apply all over, a glow-inducing effect that looks like Kim has taken full advantage of. So with her obvious love for these radiant liquids and creams, I'm going to take a punt at it and say the Kardazzle Compact is a highlighter. And yes, I know it's called a Kardazzle Compact, but if it gives you a glowing complexion like hers, who cares?
