Kim Kardashian West is very open when it comes to her beauty routine. We know this because she didn’t hold anything back as PEOPLE’s guest beauty editor in this week’s issue. For example, her candor about laser hair removal on her hairline is not only refreshing, but a story you probably haven’t heard. So let’s have her tell you.

“I have the hairiest forehead you could ever imagine, and I would always break out and get all cracky on my forehead just from all the hair that I had,” she tells PEOPLE. “So in high school, I would wax it off because there was just so much hair, and then I would laser it off a little bit. If you Google 2008 or 2007, I had the craziest, hairiest hairline, so I did laser it. Everyone would just Photoshop it every time I did a photo shoot [anyway]. I didn’t really change the shape, I just got rid of all the baby hairs.”

Another major beauty focus for the star is her eyebrows. The only person she lets near her arches? Brow master Anastasia Soare.

“Eyebrows for me are always really important,” she shares. “I didn’t know how much they shape your face and how different they make your face look. I met Anastasia and she was just begging to do my brows and I was like ‘Eh, I don’t know,’ and after she did it changed my life. It literally looked so different. Generally I think that they have a good shape. I love where my eyebrows are going right now.”

Kim is currently at Paris Fashion Week with her family, and she just shared a photo of her on-trend manicure, switching up the length of her tips. (We know, it’s hard to focus on her nails when her gigantic Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring is staring you in the face.)

And Kim tells PEOPLE that when she goes for her manis, she always gravitates toward pale shades: “My go-to nail color is always nude. I like gels, so I like this OPI ‘Samoan Sand‘.”
