‘Natural’ is a relative term. We’ve learned to eye such a label with discerning suspicion when we see it on food packaging or when its describing the look of fillers and other injectables, and the same goes for its use in relation to Kardashian beauty. Case in point: Kim Kardashian‘s “Natural Daytime Look.” The reality star shared a tutorial video on her website this week, in which makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic shows you how to get her “pretty, natural look.” Needless to say, it’s not your simple swipe of mascara and lip balm routine.

After filling in Kardashian’s brows to frame her face and perfecting their shape with a bit of concealer, Dedivanovic applies a few shades of brown eyeshadow to her lids, a couple coats of mascara, and—get this—THREE different eyeliners. First a kohl pencil, followed by a liquid liner to get that subtle cat flick, then a shimmery copper pencil on her lower lashline to “bring out the gold in her eyes.” And that’s just the eyes.

Moving onto the rest of Kim’s glam, the product list continues with bronzer for some light contouring, highlighter for glow, and finishing mist to set the look in all its effortless simplicity.

“So natural!” Kim says with a laugh as the finishing touches are applied, suggesting just maaaybe she’s aware of the humour here.

“It’s Instagram natural,” Dedivanovic specifies.

What else could we expect from the Selfie Queen herself?
