Kim Kardashian West is everywhere we look, but we still have unlimited questions about her beauty routine. So when it came time to pick a guest editor for this week’s beauty pages in PEOPLE, she was a natural choice — after all, she recently got a killer new haircut and her haircare line just hit stores. You’ll have to pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE for all the scoop (trust us: You want to hear her opinion on the current state of her eyebrows), but here’s a sneak peek of all the excitement in store.

She’ll splurge on beauty products, but she loves affordable finds too: While her favorite moisturizer is $455, she’s also got a fair number of drugstore finds in her arsenal as well. (Her favorite shampoo and conditioner? No spoilers, but they retail for $3.49 at

Her favorite red-carpet look is an oldie but a goodie: “Maybe because I was 20 pounds skinnier and I loved how I looked then, but I posted a photo of Kourtney and me at the Emmys [in 2009, above left] and I was wearing some white dress and my hair was pulled back. We had no hair extensions, we just put my hair in a bun and it was a really simple look, and I just thought it was really clean.”

Her favorite accessories are pretty glam: “Always my ring, and I’m really into chokers right now [like the one above, top right!]. I would say this big Cartier choker is really my favorite thing. I love chokers and a hint of fur.”

She’s not sure about bangs on herself: “There are pictures from when I was, like, eight years old, and I swear Kourtney cut my bangs and it looked pretty bad. I will say, I did cut my bangs when I was pregnant, and you should never make a drastic hair change when you’re pregnant!”

She loves nude makeup, but sometimes she’ll surprise herself: “It’s not a huge beauty risk, but I remember Mario [Dedivanovic] was doing my makeup in N.Y.C. recently for the John Legend release-slash-birthday party [above, bottom right], and he was like ‘Let me give you blue eyeshadow,’ and I was like ‘No, you cannot give me blue eyeshadow.’ I wasn’t paying attention and he did my eye all blue and he was like ‘Okay, you’re all done! You’re all blue!’ and I ended up loving it. It was like this really dark smokey eye, but it was a blue color, and I wouldn’t have had let him do it if I were paying attention, so it was good, but he wishes that I would do more things like that.”
