Get a sneak preview at all the scoop she gave us in our upcoming issue
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 Drugstore.com.)
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.”
