Kim Kardashian’s Wedding

I’m not ashamed to say that I was waiting for this day for a very, very long time. Though Kim K comes across annoyingly narcissistic in her show, I still am obsessed with her clothes and hair and make up and shoes and jewellery and all of the other things I’ll never have.

I was always going to blog about her day, and it was always going to be the longest post I’ve ever done. So take a deep breath and keep reading.

The photos and info have been taken from Who magazine (September 5th 2011).

Her three dresses:

1. Her actual wedding dress

(Vera Wang)

I definitely wasn’t a fan of this. It looked like a mix of paper mache and a dress from ‘My big fat Gypsy wedding’. It’s quite hard to see in the photos, but the bottom of the corset was in a V shape with the tulle billowing out from underneath. However, her hair and make up were kept simple which looked so beautiful (Her make up artist’s break down of the look is below). The jewelled piece on her forehead (worth $2.5m) is traditionally Armenian – really nice touch.

Her bridesmaids’ dresses were much more elegant. They were all ivory, A-line gowns, also from Vera Wang.

2. Reception dress #1

(Vera Wang)

MY FAVOURITE. This dress was so much more demure. At least she’ll be able to look back at photos of this dress and not slap herself for looking OTT. I think the fit is stunning and her hair is gorg.

3. Reception dress #2

(Vera Wang)

Completely unnecessary. It was old Hollywood glamour… blah blah blah. WHY DID SHE HAVE 3 DRESSES?

Make up:

More than Kim Kardashian herself, I am so in love with her make up artist, Mario Dedivanovic. He is a superstar. He has blogged about how he did her make up on that day:

Skin –

To prep Kims skin, I used The Moisturizing Lotion by La Mer all over the face and neck.
I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup by Dior to even out the skin tone.
To cover and highlight under the eyes, I used By Terry’s Touche Veloutee concealer.I set her makeup using Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder.

Eyes –

I brushed Kim’s brows then filled them in using L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Custom Brow Shaping Pencil in Light Brown.
To define and play up Kim’e eyes, I used Lancôme 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Frenzy. I swept the light golden shade all over the lids and I applied the darker shade along her crease with a small liner brush. I used the lightest shadow on the brow bone to highlight.
Along the lower lash line, I swept a touch of the golden/bronze shades, focusing more towards the outer corners.
I lined her eyes (top lid only) using Cover Girl Line Exact Liquid Liner in Very Black. Start out with a thin line at the inner corner and gradually thicken the line as you go towards the outer corners. Wing the liner up and out.
To give her lashes (both top and bottom) more length and volume, I applied two coats of Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara in So Black!

Cheeks –

On the apples of cheeks, I applied Lancôme Blush Subtil in Rose Romantique. (A sheer peachy tone) Smile and sweep right on the apple blending out and up.
To warm up Kims skin and contour her cheeks, I used Guerlain Teracotta bronzing powder. I brushed a bit all along the hairline and jawline. I also applied some along the hollows of her cheeks to contour.
I gave Kim radiant, glowing skin with Giella’s Eye M Glam highlighter. I applied some along her cheek bones to give a dewey effect, on the bridge of her nose, cupids bow (right above the center of upper lip) and I also swept it along her decolletage, shoulders and arms. Lastly, I applied it to the inner corners of her eyes using a small liner brush to brighten and open the eyes.


I defined her lips using YSL Dessin Des Levres lipliner in Nude Beige followed by Lancôme’s L’Absolu Nu lipstick in Coral Sand. (A sheer peachy lipstick.)
I finished off her lips by adding a touch of shine with Lancôme La Laque Fever lipgloss in Ravishing Coral. (Very pretty color for any skin tone)
To keep Kim looking fresh from the day and into the evening, I used TATCHA Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers. (They’re all natural and powder free.)


Overall, the wedding looked gorgeous. Let’s hope it lasts!
