Nicole Scherzinger. Kim Kardashian. Both women are beautiful, and many people think they look alike. And yes, both were on Dancing with the Stars
What these two exotic celebrities share is a signature smokey eye look. And it's all about their eyes! It is indeed the focus of Nicole and Kim's daily makeup palette.
Throughout the entire Dancing with the Stars series, Nicole always wore her smokey eye look. And it served her well, along with her incredible dancing talent in the Argentine tango, as she and Derek Hough brought home the much-sought-after mirrorball trophy in Monday night's television finale.
So, let's take a look at Nicole and Kim's smokey eye makeup tips:
It's not too hard to copy. Just arm yourself with tons of black mascara, black eyeliner, and dark eyeshadow, and you, too, can achieve this sexy, signature look.
We found this beauty how-to from Kim K's own website quite a while ago:
"If it's black smokey (eyes), I use Carbon by M.A.C.(shadow); if its grey smokey, I use Knight Divine or Print; if it's brown smokey, I use Embark by M.A.C.
I always use black pencil eyeliner. My favorite is Stilla black pencil.
Now its mascara time! Putting on mascara completes the look. I recently started to use M.A.C. Zoom mascara -- which is amazing! I take my time and put coat after coat. I love to layer mascaras so I will probably start with the M.A.C. Zoom and then put Lancome Hypnose on top.
I always use a separater brush to separate my lashes. I am completely clueless on how to put false lashes on, so I only wear them for photo shoots sometimes."
Finish off with a nude lip color like Nars Belle de Jour, and you're good to go!
By the way, Nicole Scherzinger's brand new single, "Nobody Can Change Me," drops next Tuesday. We're excited for her, and if you cannot wait, it's already available for download on iTunes.
