Why Does Kim Kardashian Look So Different?

Slicked-back hair, smoky eyes and nude lips are staples in the reality star’s beauty look, so it took us a minute to hit on which part of the formula had been tweaked just enough to make Kim Kardashian look a little different than usual at the Met Gala. Then—aha!—we noticed the brows. Her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic confirmed that they’d been bleached for the big event to give her Balmain a futuristic edge to fit the Manus x Machina theme. “We dyed them completely white, then I filled them in with blonde pencil. She’s done it for photoshoots, but I’d say we were both a little nervous.” To keep the brows from being “too editorial for the red carpet,” he offset them with heavy bronze smoky eyes using every shade in Sephora Colorful 5 Eyeshadow in No. 10, then finished with Sephora Color Lip Last in Cinnamon Crush.
