Joyce has put together a step-by-step guide to creating my People’s Choice Awards look. Read her guide here.

Joyce also has a fab blog you can check out!

STEP 1: KOURTNEY’S SKIN

DON’T FORGET GIRLS!! It’s very Important to keep up on your skincare regimen to keep its glamour & to help you have a clean smooth look. On Kourt I apply PerfectSkin & PerfectSkin eye cream. To condition lips I used Clarks Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm. *Don’t be lazy, this also goes for using a cleanser on your pretty little face at night as well! If ONE night you happen to be too tired, use makeup remover wipes.

STEP 2: PRIMER

I used Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox. *On warm summer days try cooling your Foundation Primer in the refrigerator for refreshing the skin and reduce puffiness.

STEP 3: FOUNDATION

I used Photo ‘Perfexion by Givenchy. When blended into the skin with a foundation brush for a flawless touch, this foundation gives a smoothing concealer effect with a weightless wear and a radiance “projector.”

STEP 4: UNDER EYES

I use Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier.  *this product is the perfect trick for completely camouflaging dark circles, minor imperfections, and discoloration.

STEP 5: SET

Finally I set Kourt’s entire face with Smashbox’s Photo Set Finishing Powder with SPF 15. *this is perfect to keep makeup from melting away under the hot lights of a photoshoot or on the red carpet.  REMEMBER don’t use too much of this, just a little touch is all you need.

STEP 6: BROWS

I tweezed them using Tweezerman tweezers. Then filled them in with Benefit’s Brow Zing. *use an angled brush and apply soft strokes of the pigmented wax to shape and define the brow, then take your small blending brush to apply and set the brow zing’s powder to fill in sparse areas and lock the brows into place.

STEP 7: KOURTNEY’S EYES

To prime the lid I used Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Tawny Matte Finish by Urban Decay topped with Eyeshadow in Chopper by Urban Decay. *this is the perfect color for giving off a smokey dark golden pinkish glam look. M.A.C. has the perfect Eye Kohl in Smolder that I used to line Kourt’s upper inner eye line.  I also give a thick line on top of the lid close to the lash line. Remember, to finish off the eye, I curl her lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler.  I gave Kourtney her lush lashes with Plush Lash by M.A.C..

STEP 8: KOURTNEY’S CHEEKS

On the hollow of her cheeks I applied Bronzing Powder in Laguna by NARS. To give give that pinkish glow, I used a touch of CORALista Blush by Benefit to give a sheer natural hint of color.

STEP 9: KOURTNEY’S LUMINOUS GLOW

I applied Lust Dust by benefit right above the hollows of her cheeks & bridge of her nose.

STEP 10: KOURTNEY’S LIPS
First I lined her lips with a The Essential Pencil in Nude by Trish McEvoy. *Although this is a matte finish it helps to extend the wear of your favorite gloss or lip color. Next, I applied and blended lipstick in Pink Innocent by Trish McEvoy. I finished her lips with FUSION BEAUTY’s Lip Fusion inFATuation in La Lip Jolie to give the glossy coat.
