A Toned-Down Kim Kardashian Stuns On The Cover Of Vogue Australia

Wow. Just wow.

The Kardashians aren't usually touted for their natural appearances. So when queen bee Kim strips down to a less made-up look, especially for something like a Vogue cover, it's always a beautiful surprise.

Mrs. West is the glossy's June cover star in Australia. Her typically well-coiffed hair was perfectly undone and she kicked contour to the curb for the stunning shot, for which she wore a white boxy top and corset by Yeezy.

Celebrity makeup artist Romy Soleimani, whose work can be spotted on beauties like Kate Hudson and Brie Larson and on the runways of Kate Spade and Lela Rose, gave Kardashian her signature "Romy glow," layering rosy and taupe highlighters and concealers by By Terry, Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown. Kardashian also went sans mascara or fake eyelashes for this shoot. Shocker, we know.

"She was so happy with it," Soleimani told The Huffington Post. "At the end she was like, 'Maybe I should do more of a natural look.'"

It took the professional approximately one hour to make Karadashian appear as though "she was wearing nothing at all." Soleimani started with great skincare using a cream cleanser. Then, she applied a Colbert MD Illumino Anti-Aging Brightening Mask, working the serum into the skin.

We're having major deja vu to Kardashian's spread in Vogue España back in July 2015, where the reality mogul appeared mostly makeup-free and looked so, so beautiful.

Is this a sign that Kardashian is fully embracing the barely-there makeup trend? Only time will tell.
