Get Kyle Richards' Warm Glow
The Richards sisters' makeup artist spills the family secrets.
Sure, Kyle Richards was blessed with fabulous genes (and an equally easy on the eyes husband), but she's hiding a secret behind that pretty face -- Beverly Hills makeup artist Thierry Pourtoy.
"Kyle is stunning without makeup," he raves to ABeautyLoft.com about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. "So light on foundation. Make Up Forever HD base and only powder on the T-Zone. I like to play with her eyes -- shimmery lid and inner corner, eyeliner that could be dark brown, eggplant or black and lots of individual lashes."
But to give Mauricio's beauty queen her year-round glow, Thierry uses "cream blush, highlighter, and contour. I use my own cream blush, Palette maquillage, in Flatter, Privilege and Lullaby -- and on her eyes, Bare Escentuals eye kit in Top Shelf with rose gold or bronzed highshine eyecolor."
Like a good sister, Kyle shares with her sibs, so Thierry's been known to sprinkle his magic on Kathy Hilton and Kim Richards as well. "Kim's look is very different -- she is blonde and has tanner skin, so her makeup needs to be in neutrals and nude tones, but I still play with the eyes," he explains. "Lots of lashes and bronze and pink colors look the best on Kim for a fresh and youthful look."
Making the BH Housewives rounds, the French artist uses a similar approach on Lisa Vanderpump. "Lisa's makeup look is soft and feminine because we use palettes in pink, plum, purple and eggplant–lots of blending and eyelashes."
