The Kardashian’s personal make-up artist & BFF Rob Scheppy shares his insider secrets on how to get Kim, Khloé and Kourtney’s signature beauty looks. And he reveals how working with the girls is anything but boring...

Interview by Alice Manning

Rob Scheppy and the Kardashian Sisters

Rob on... Kim

“Kim is known for her glowing skin and flawless complexion,” says Rob. “She has really set a trend for it, along with nude lips and dramatic eyes. She’s refined her look as she’s learnt what works from experimenting over the years.”

Kim Kardashian

The Essentials

Kardashian 24K Prime , Intimate Spotlight , and Au Naturel Lip Kit

3 steps to Kim’s look


“Start by prepping your skin with the Kardashian 24K Prime Mask , it leaves skin moisturised and helps to close pores.”


“Apply foundation in your natural skin tone with a brush to create flawless, even skin. Then take another shade, this time one shade darker, and use it to contour and define your features. Suck in your cheeks to help locate your cheekbones, then blend the foundation just below and up towards your ears.”


“Using Intimate Spotlight , highlight and define your cheek and brow bones, the bridge of your nose and Cupid’s bow.”

Secrets from the make-up chair...

“Kim and I are both romantics at heart. When I’m doing her make-up, we love to talk about love, relationships and we always watch Sex and the City.”

“Kim loves make-up more than anyone I know, it’s a real passion of hers.”

Rob on... Khloé

“Khloé’s signature look is definitely glamorous. She likes to play up her green eyes with different eye colours. She also loves to experiment, especially with face jewellery to create an exotic vibe.”

Khloé Kardashian

The Essentials

Stroke of Midnight Mascara , Double-Up Smoky Eye and High Eye Q Liner

3 steps to Khloé’s look


“Once you’ve applied your foundation, take a Double-Up in your preferred colour – I love Fawn Shimmer – and smudge the creamy colours over your eye lids, always finishing with the darkest colour. Use the lightest colour to highlight the brow bones.”


“You then need to line the upper and lower lash lines, as well as inside the inner waterline.”


“Finish with two coats of Stroke of Midnight Mascara for incredible volume and length. Khloé loves how it gives her a faux-lash look.”

Secrets from the make-up chair...

“Khloé loves noise, so we usually listen to music when we work together. We laugh a lot and we have a funny way of speaking to each other.”

“Khloé isn’t in to following beauty trends – she just loves having fun with it and experimenting.”

Rob on... Kourtney

“Kourtney can go from natural and bohemian to sophisticated and vampy depending on how she’s feeling and what she’s wearing, but her signature look is definitely all about bright, vivid lips. Being a mother, her day-to-day look is super-simple and she can do it in no time.”

Kourtney Kardashian

The Essentials

Joystick in Retro Red , Joystick in Sea Coral , and Cabana Bronzer

3 steps to Kourtney’s look


“Although her day look is pretty natural, Kourtney is obsessed with bronzer. She gets through so much! It is her go-to product from the collection and gives her instant glow. She dusts it all over, including her body.”


“In the past I would have always prepped and lined Kourtney’s lips but now I don’t need to thanks to the Joysticks which have everything I need in one. The colours are really highly pigmented and they glide on effortlessly. Her favourite current shades are Sea Coral and Retro Red.”


“Kourtney loves Whip Lash Mascara which combs, lengthens and curls lashes – all at once. Big lashes definitely complete her signature look.”

Secrets from the make-up chair...

“Let’s just say that having Kourtney in the make-up chair is the ultimate party. You never know what’s going to happen and there’s never a dull moment – music, TV, books, laptops, iPads, toys, kids, food, Twitter, Instagram and Keek – there’s always something fun going on.”

“Kourtney and I definitely get inspired by fashion and she loves referencing the 60’s, 70’s, Audrey Hepburn and Kate Moss.”
