Lil Kim, BIG Problem

lil+kim Lil Kim, BIG Problem
Allow me to digress for a second…

Lil Kim walked the pink carpet at the NYC premiere of Sex And The City: The Movie.

More shocking than the fact that she was fully clothed was the condition of her face. Look at Lil Kim’s face, people! She looks like the lost member of The Chipettes.

Let this be a lesson to us all. Makeup is for a moment. This hot mess is forever.

Sex And The City Beauty: Carrie

Makeup artist Judy Chin, who worked with Sarah Jessica Parker on the last four seasons of SATC and on several films, is responsible for SJP’s big-screen beauty.

“Sarah had many looks for this film but one thing that I always wanted to be present for her was a natural beauty that didn’t look like makeup,” Judy says.

“I tried to keep her eyes the focus by creating a strong yet natural lash line and I always framed her eyes with beautiful lashes. Also important: a healthy rosy flush to her cheeks, a soft mouth, and clean, healthy skin that had a natural glow and shine to it. I used blot film to remove excess shine and powdered only if I needed to.”

carrie3 Sex And The City Beauty: CarrieTo give SJP’s skin a light, dewy finish, Judy applied tinted moisturizer with a brush, which gives a more even blend than fingers. Then she smoothed it out with a cosmetic sponge to work the color into the skin, making it more natural. She used concealer only where necessary, and gave SJP a slight rosy cheek using cream blush. By layering and blending it into the skin, it more closely mimics a natural flush.

“I worked the eye pencil into her lashline by applying it in between her lashes and smudged it very softly to blend it,” Judy says. “I was careful to coat her lashes from the root and brushed them out – and we always curled them.”

Sex And The City Beauty: Samantha

If you’re a fan of the series, you remember a time when Samantha Jones played for both teams. When we rejoin our favorite minx on the big screen, we learn that she’s bi again. Bi-coastal, that is. She’s traded the meatpacking district for Malibu.

Kyra mixed St. Tropez Self-Tanner and Aircraft Body Makeup, then topped it off with Scott Barnes Body Bling. “Kim went through loads of wipes to remove her body make-up each day and loved how gentle they were on her skin,” she says.

Kyra also used MAC Blot Powder in Medium, MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy, and MAC Cleansing Tips to clean up under the eyes.
