Khloe Kardashian has hit back at online critics who have “mom-shamed” her over her long nails.
In a new beauty tutorial for Vogue.com, the reality TV personality takes fans through her daily skincare and make-up routine, detailing the products she uses.
But at one point during the video, Khloe stopped to explain that she loves her long fingernails and never once considered getting a shorter manicure following the birth of her daughter True Thompson in April 2018.
“I’ve always had long nails. I’ve had long nails for 100 years. I’m a long nail type of girl. Everyone told me, when you have a baby you have to have short nails. This is gross. You can’t take care of your child,” she commented, before adding that she has never had any issues with her nails. “If I can wipe my own a*s, I can wipe my child’s a*s! I mean I’m actually looking at hers. So, it’s a lot easier.”
Elsewhere in the tutorial, Khloe noted that she starts her beauty regime by applying Quinn’s Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Rose Petal and Aloe Vera Natural Toner to her T-zone, and then adds a layer of EltaMD’s UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46, and some of Drunk Elephant’s Lala Retro Whipped Cream for hydration. She will often mix the moisturiser with some of Tom Ford’s Traceless Foundation Stick to make her own BB cream too.
“Since becoming a mom, this is what I do,” the 35-year-old laughed. “I had to learn how to do make-up really quickly, and not do too many wet things. Because if it’s wet and I have to run after her, it’s going to set really weird and then I’m going to look super blotchy.”
Khloe also named Kylie Cosmetics’ Translucent Loose Setting Powder, MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette in Light/Medium, KKW Beauty Liquid Concealer, Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara, and the KKW Beauty Peach Creme Lip Liner as some of her favourite products.
And not only does she use formulas from her older sister Kim Kardashian and younger half-sister Kylie Jenner’s lines, she marvels at their techniques as well.
“I’m just in awe of all their techniques,” she smiled. “Whenever Kylie does a make-up tutorial… I’m so captivated.”
