How to build a Kjaer Weis Palette

kjaer weis palette

Yesterday, I posted a tutorial on Instagram using my Kjaer Weis Makeup Palette (LOVE!!). It’s saved in my Instagram Stories under ‘Kjaer Weis.’ So many readers were interested in learning more about the Palette, so I created this Guide to show you everything you need to personalize your own!

I also had the opportunity to learn from the creator of the Kjaer Weis line, Kirsten. She did an event at Aillea in Atlanta and she is just the best. This line is truly intentional - created to act as skincare with color (heart eyes) and the packaging is just absolutely drop dead gorgeous!

See below for everything you need for your very own palette!

1. This is the palette that you will need, so you can fill it with all of the makeup goodness!

2. Foundation Refill

3. Blush Refill

4. Highlighter Refill

5. I apply Foundation, blush and highlighter with a Beautyblender (currently 15% off at Sephora).  The key is to wet the sponge a little first with either water or toner!

6. Eyeshadow Refill

7. Eyeshadow Refill

8. Lip Tint Refill 

That's everything you need to fill your palette!  Here are some other KW products, to complete your look!

Lipliner

Eyeliner

Mascara is Ilia Limitless Lash or KW Mascara

KW Beautiful Oil This oil and the foundation were formulated to work together.  The oil adds to the beautiful coverage of the foundation.  You want to make sure you skin is hydrated before applying the KW Foundation!

For reference, the colors in my palette are the following: Foundation in Paper Thin, Blush in Desire Glow, Highlighter in Ravishing, Lip Tint in Dream State, Eyeshadows in Magnetic and Wisdom.

** Fuller lip trick:  I almost always apply my lip color with my finger tip.  I smudge it into my lip because I don't like for my lip color to look like it's sitting on top of my lips.  If I want bolder color, I will first smudge the color into my lip as a base.  Then, I will swipe the color directly onto my lips...but I still smudge it with my finger after.  I do this as many times as I need to, in order to achieve the desired amount of pigment.  I then use a coordinating lipliner to outline the very outer edge of my lips (almost a tiny bit outside of my lips). A nude lipliner like this one is actually very versatile and can be used for many of your more neutral lip colors.  For bolder shades, it's best to find a coordinating lipliner!
