I think it depends on your hair color and skin tone.  That’s a lot of makeup, but she pulls it off with her dark complexion and hair.  If you’re fair with light hair, yes!

i agree with the pp…. if you look like Kim in hair color/skin tone then you can probably pull it off. If you look more like Reese Witherspoon, then you should stick to her best looks.

I think the eyes are a tad bit much.

@deetroitwhat:  Agreed.

Although, I am considering doing this look

Which is makeupgeek’s version of the Kim Kardashian “smokey eye”. There is a tutorial on her website. Her skin is a little more fair, and I think it’s a good alternative.

I also like this one (“Dramatic bridal look”):

Had my trial last Saturday and wanted really dark smokey eyes. I’m really used to make-up, don’t leave the house without it. So I wanted something dramatic for my wedding. On one eye he showed me how the smokey eyes would look, on the other one how he would recommend it. It was also great but not that deep black dramatic touch. More smooth and elegant. I decided for the elegant one:-) He said the dark eyes look great for a party, but for a wedding it could easily be too much. and when I compare both kinds on a picture he has taken of me I really have to confess that the smokey eye will be too much for a wedding. Nothing to say against false eyelashes, but not as long as the once of Kim. K.;-)
