The Kardashian clan live to be pampered and prepped for photo shoots, red-carpet appearances and even a casual trip to the mall. Luckily for those of us who don’t have a personal glam squad on call, the three gorgeous sisters dish out their favorite beauty products and secrets.

Kim is known for her gorgeous olive-hued skin and flawless complexion, but she doesn’t owe her year-long tan to harsh, cancerous UV rays.
“SPF is everything,” she says. “I always use moisturizers and creams with SPF in them because they don’t just help prevent skin cancer, but they also help reduce blotchiness and prevent dark spots and skin discoloration. I think for a lot of young people, sun damage isn’t a huge concern, but it’s so important to take precautions. I have naturally pale, olive skin, but I prefer my look when I have a tan, so I use our Kardashian Sun Kissed sunless tanning products.”
The Kardashian girls love dry shampoo and conditioner for days when their locks are looking limp and lifeless.
“Dry shampoo is amazing, but dry conditioner is even better! Khloé and I are both totally addicted to dry shampoo, but we found that while our roots were refreshed after using it, we were getting really dry ends. So when we were creating our Kardashian Beauty hair line, we wanted to include a dry conditioner too, to fix that problem. Now I wouldn’t use one without the other!” reveals Kim.
Kim knows her makeup look is never complete without bold, beautiful brows that make a statement. Celebrity makeup artist and Kim’s personal friend, Mario Dedivanovic, has perfected Kim’s brows over the years with the use of his personal beauty trick.
He uses not one, but two brow pencils in a darker and lighter shade to sculpt her brows. “One trick I learned from Mario is to use two different shades on my brows,” says Kim. “Start at the edges with a darker pencil, because this is the area that needs the most definition, and then switch to a slightly lighter shade for the inner brow to make it look softer and more natural.”Image: Instagram/KimKardashian
If there’s one beauty rule all the sisters know, it’s to embrace change and try trends. Khloé recently ditched her iconic long locks for a new fresh and flirty golden blond bob.
“I’ll admit I was nervous to cut my hair,” our cover star reveals. “I’ve had long hair for as long as I can remember, but it felt like time for a change. Now that it’s shorter it’s a lot more manageable and has more volume. I’ve been using our ceramic iron and wearing it super straight recently.”
The Kardashian’s love splurging on a few expensive beauty items, but they also admire simple and inexpensive beauty products. “I’m a big fan of cheap, yet effective products like Vaseline,” admits Khloé. “I put it on my lips, eyes, hands, even feet. I’ll apply my favorite moisturizer first and then a layer of vaseline over the top. It locks in moisture while you sleep so you’ll wake up with soft skin.”
Kourtney agrees. “Check the ingredients of your products. Good skin care comes down to good ingredients. Natural antioxidants like green tea extract and vitamin C work wonders. To me, what I put on my skin, hair and body is just as important as what I eat,” she says.

Want Kardashian-caliber cheekbones? Khloé reveals a simple, but effective way to make your cheekbones glow underneath your foundation.
“My makeup artist told me she always applies highlighter to the cheeks before applying foundation,” she says. This step may seem backwards, but it leaves skin with a gorgeous dewy finish.
“Get what you need for your skin, hair, nails and body from within,” says Kourtney. “Taking the right vitamins and eating the right foods are really important. I eat as cleanly and organically as possible and love learning about different ingredients and how they can help benefit from the inside out.”
