Say what you will about Kim Kardashian, but I’ll forever back her on one thing: the girl’s makeup is always on point. Whether she’s rocking the family trademark super-smoky eye and nude gloss, or keeping it low-key with just mascara and flawless skin, Kim’s beauty routine has inarguably got it going on. Check out our top seven picks of her many makeup looks in the gallery above!

Petal Pink Lips
We love Kim’s trademark in-your-face sultry sensibilities, but it’s always refreshing to see her pared down and calling attention to her perfect skin (seriously, she always looks so smooth). A clean topknot puts the focus on her wide, almond-shaped eyes, high cheekbones, and baby pink lips.
The Kardashian family calling card is tons and tons of expertly smoked-out black shadow, and we daresay Kim does it best. Her clean, impeccably arched brows are the perfect frame for a heavy liner look that could be overwhelming otherwise, and the slicked-back crown of her loose hair looks flawlessly pulled together without too much effort.
When Kim goes glam, she goes glam. Case in point: there isn’t a detail spared, from her darkened, perfectly groomed brows and deep side-part to the gorgeous shade of cherry red lipstick. It’s only slightly different from her everyday look, but it makes all the difference.
Glossy Red Lips
We’ve all been told never to pair heavy eyes with bold lips, but doesn’t brave Kim make it look oh so easy? The glossy tomato shade is especially flattering on her tan complexion when paired with a mustard yellow dress, and that wavy, side-swept hair is to die for.
Kim is a jack of all beauty trades, but this is one look that takes our breath away. A voluminous bouffant with flowing tendrils is the ultimate complement to an overall very ’60s-inspired look, complete with black liquid liner, defined lower lashes, and the requisite semi-matte pinky nude lipstick. We love.
Kim is usually all glammed up, so we think she looks especially gorgeous when she dials down the eyeshadow and accentuates her naturally exotic features. All she really needs is some caramel gloss, loads of falsies, and a bit of volume at the roots to take her look from hanging around the house to ready to sign her autograph.
Elizabeth Taylor, is that you? Kim is not one to shy away from the spotlight in any capacity, so it’s only natural that all eyes are on her when she brings it in a look like this. She went the full makeup monty, but still manages to look put-together thanks to a high, slicked-back bun.
