If anyone has dabbled in the early seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, they will know that the Kardashian ladies didn’t always look as put together as they do today.

While some celebs would credit their own makeup skills, the Kardashian-Jenner’s have made no secret of the work their trusty glam squad do (#dreamjob).

Etienne Ortega has been a part of this squad ever since Kim found his Instagram and gave him a try. He is a celebrity hair and makeup artist who has also worked with Christina Aguilera, Kate Beckinsale and Eva Longoria.

Now, Etienne has spilled some tips on how to make your eye makeup last. Maybe if we follow his guidance, we too could contour like the Kardashians…

1. Primer

Napoleon Perdis has taught us all that ‘it’s a crime not to prime’ but Etienne has stressed the importance of primer for our eyes. It will make eyes pop AND the shadow will last. He recommends Laura Mercier primer.

2. Cream eyeshadows

Excess eyeshadow landing on your perfected foundation and concealer can be a nightmare. It’s messy and time-consuming to fix. That’s why Etienne recommends a cream-based eye shadow.

Our members love: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow and Lush Cream Eye Shadow.

3. Powder

When dusting your face with setting powder, it can be easy to forget the eyes. But you shouldn’t. Etienne suggests adding little powder to make sure you’re eyeshadow lasts.

4. Bronze

Believe it or not, Etienne says that bronzer is a safe bet. It’s also an easy way to build upon your daytime makeup for an evening look and can add dimension if dusted under the eye.

Our members love: The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder, Maybelline New York Bricks Bronzer and MAC Bronzing Powder.

5. Lashes

If all has gone wrong, Etienne relies on some heavy false lashes. It’s a quick way to transition into a night look. You can add extra drama with liner and darker shadow.

Our members love: MAC 1 Lash false lashes, Designer Brands Lashes and Glam by Manicare Gisele Lashes.
