Tejada doesn't just work with Kim either. In fact, he actually started with Kylie Jenner (who direct messaged him on Instagram) and has been working with the Kardashian-Jenner clan ever since.
In the video, Tejada demonstrates how he gives Kim that natural-looking glow she's so known for. "I'm going to teach you how to sculpt the skin in a soft way that doesn't look too dramatic, Tejada starts off saying.
Here are a few of his tips to help you replicate Kim's no-makeup, makeup look:
Step 1: He begins with Smashbox Matte Bronzer in Sun Tan ($30), evenly applying it from the edge of Kim's forehead going down to her temples, in efforts to contour her face. You can also try Smashbox Bronze Lights in Warm Matte ($34). Then softly applies it underneath her cheekbones and down the bridge of her nose.
Step 2: To add that shimmery glow, Tejada then applies Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in So Hollywood ($28) softly on Kim's chin, on her cheeks, down the bridge of her nose and on her cupid's bow. You can also try Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in Apricot Gold ($28). Then he adds a little bit of a peach blush to the apples of her cheeks.
Step 3: "To finish off her look we're going to softly line her lips with MAC Lip Liner in Stripdown ($17)," says Tejada. This helps define the edges. Then he fills in her lips with Dose of Colors Lipstick in Soft Touch ($16). He then applies a light layer of gloss and Kim's all good to go.
There you have it, a softer makeup look that's pretty easy to replicate at home and super wearable for every day. It's no wonder all the Kardashian-Jenner girls work with Tejada now. He has some serious skills!
