Kim Kardashian 'Natural/Peachy' Makeup - Drugstore Recommendations xx

I absolutely love Kim's makeup in this picture - soft and natural, perfect for school or work. The slightly winged eyeliner gives it a more elegant feel. I love how both the cheeks and lips are done with a similar peachy shade. I know that's supposed to be a big trend this autumn, using one shade all over the face in different textures. Keep reading for a few drugstore recommendations on how to create Kim's natural, peachy look. 

Starting with foundation, my favorite drugstore foundation of all time has to be the Revlon Colorstay foundation. It comes in two different formulas, one for dry skin and one for oily skin, and the shade range is excellent. This foundation has pretty good longevity, and the price isn't bad at about $14-16. 
For setting powder, Revlon does two that I really recommend. There is either the Photoready Translucent Finisher or the Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral finishing powder, which comes in several sheer shades. 

For blush you want to go for a true peach color, something that will really give your face a healthy glow. L'oreal does an amazing peach blush called "True Match - Innocent Flush" 

Rimmel does several peach toned blushes as well. 

A slightly different option would be the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in "Peach Satin," which is absolutely gorgeous and a little goes a long way. 

For lipstick, again staying in the peach toned family, Nostalgia (top) or Soft Coral (bottom), both by Rimmel, would be perfect for this look. Nostalgia is more of a pinkish-coral, while Soft Coral is a true peachy-orangey coral. I own both of these, they are stunning ! 

For lipgloss I would highly recommend Revlon's Coral Reef or Peach Petal lip glosses. Choose Peach Petal (top) if your going for a more nude look, and Coral Reef (bottom) if your opting for a brighter look. 

It wouldn't be a Kim Kardashian makeup look without a touch of bronzer, and Bourjois' chocolate bronzer would be perfect to give the face a bit of warmth. 

A great little dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette is this Neutral Tones Palette by Avon. It's a quarter of the price of the Naked Palette and you get some really great, wearable neutral shades, perfect for school, work, interviews, etc. 

For mascara and eyeliner I'd recommend the Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara and the L'oreal Lineur Intense liquid eyeliner. These are great products, super affordable and very dependable. The mascara is great at giving you really dramatic long lashes and the eyeliner lets you get a very precise, elegant line. 

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I had fun creating it. I love Kim Kardashian, and I always feel so inspired when I see her makeup. Please comment and follow for more Kim Kardashian recommendations, and of course so much more xxx
