When your social calendar is as packed as Kim Kardashian's, having one makeup artist would hardly be enough. Instead, Kardashian has a squad of beauty gurus at her disposal, including smoky eye pro Stephen Moleski. Here, the A-list makeup artist takes us through Kardashian's prettiest looks, and shares his how-to tips.
Red Alert2 of 7
To balance Kardashian's orange-y red lips (which flatter her skin's warm undertones), Moleski notes her soft smoky eyes done in subtle earth tones. He recommends using a shadow brush to apply a brown powder along the lower lashes. Look for one with soft, short bristles to help with control and precision.

"It's all about the lashes," says Moleski of Kardashian's red carpet look earlier this summer. According to him, the star's natural fringe has some serious length, but for added flutter, he created the Smoke and Mirrors Beauty Vegas Lash especially for her.

What's My Line?4 of 7
Although Kardashian often works the smoky eye, here she opts for the sleek look of black liquid liner on her upper lid. On the inner rim of her lower lid, white liner helps brighten eyes. "Use a white kohl pencil which is soft and goes on smoothly," says Moleski.

For a tone-on-tone look like Kim's, Moleski suggests using a lip liner that matches your natural lip shade. "Cover lips entirely with the liner so lipstick goes on evenly and lasts longer," he says.

"Kim's skin is made for makeup," says Moleski, of the beauty chameleon who opts for a fresh, youthful look at the recent Teen Choice Awards. To get her flawless complexion, Moleski often blends together two matte bronzers to create the perfect tone.
