Beauty expert and celebrity makeup artist to the stars Kandee Johnson shares her best tips and tricks on how to get the perfect sultry smoky eye in this Kim Kardashian makeup tutorial. This video is one in a series of videos Kandee is taking part of in collaboration with Glamour Magazine for the Beauty ReCovered series, which highlights looks from stars who have previously graced the cover of the magazine.

For this tutorial, Kandee travels back in time to channel the makeup look Kim wore on the 2011 Glamour Magazine cover. Some of the quintessential parts of a Kim K. makeup look include lots of highlighting under the eyes and on the sides of the nose and plenty of contouring. A thick set of brows help to define the eyes, but if you don’t have a particularly thick pair, they’re easy enough to fake with makeup. When it comes to the eyes, in the tutorial Kandee shows that it’s all about masterful layering and blending to achieve photo-ready perfection.
