This Is How Much Kim Kardashian Actually Spends on Makeup

Kim Kardashian beauty fashion contouring

Last fall, writer Arabelle Sicardi attended a contouring class hosted by reality TV star/app guru/selfie queen/Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist in Pasadena, California, and wrote about the experience for Racked. “I went to learn her beauty tricks and see into her celebrity, and I learned this one truth: it is perfect, absurd in intricacy, unachievable, and slightly incomprehensible,” Sicardi said after completing the class. Emphasis on the unachievable part, we'd say: Here’s the product-by-product breakdown of how much Kim spends on brushes, contouring products, lipstick, and more for her daily makeup routine. Scroll down to the bottom for the shocking grand total — it may not break the internet, it but sure would break your wallet! (Granted, many of these products can be used more than once, but DANG, that’s still a lot of money for makeup!)
