The kost of Kardashian style
In the last few years Kim Kardashian West has made a name for herself in the world of fashion. Whilst her husband designs his own fashion collections under Yeezy and with Adidas, Kim is dressed by top designers in fashion forward outfits. Her style is emulated by lots of girls around the world, from the high fashion outfits to her perfectly contoured and highlighted make-up. The designer dresses may be out of reach for many of us, but what about her make-up and beauty regime?
