Kardashian's Favorite Make Up Artist Shares Secrets

Make up artist, Ariel Tejada(20) is the man behind Instagram's most liked selfies. Who do Kylie, Kim, Kourtney and Kendall turn to when they want to look flawless?! @makeupbyariel, that's who.


Ariel says that his impressive self- belief and confidence has got him where he is today. Having not had much experience in the industry he applied the 'fake it 'til you make it' theory to his career and wound up being flown to LA to do Kylie J's make up only weeks later. From that moment on his career has completely skyrocketed, shooting him to international fame. He was even responsible for this look on Kim in the photo with Amber Rose below that went insanelyyy viral.


Ariel Tejada's Top Make Up Tips


Use an emolliant moisturiser. He favours Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturiser.

Invest in good quality eye cream, he likes Tatcha Revitalising Eye Cream, and says to use a really thick one throughout the night.

Contouring can be easy! He recommends using Tom Ford cream foundation, in two shades darker than your skin tone for contouring. For highlighting the face, he suggests using a concealer that is two shades lighter than your skin tone to be used in the centre of the face to pick up light.

Illuminate, Illuminate, Illuminate. Fresh, glam and glowy is his motto. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal is the highlighter he favours. This goes on the highest point of the cheek, bridge of the nose, centre of chin and cupid's bow.

Eyeshadow is Everything. A good eyeshadow can reshape your eyes he says, Bronzey, warm toned brown shadows are favorites of his.

Add lashes for drama and definition.Wispy lashes are his number one choice, topped with a coat of mascara.


Fake fuller lips with lip liner, go outside the lip ever so slightly and fill in the lip with liner to give longevity to your lip colour.

Gloss is good, Kylie's new range is naturally a firm favorite of Ariel's.

Finish off your make up look with a good finishing spray such as Tacha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist at the very end of your make up routine to set and give a nice glow to your skin.
