We feel it’s a little crazy to even have to ask this question, but we’re relieved to hear that baby North West was completely makeup-free in her photos for the April 2014 issue of Vogue. Although her mom, Kim Kardashian, rarely goes anywhere without a heavy application of cosmetics, Nori posed au naturel in the spread (in more ways than one)!
Aaron de Mey, the makeup artist for the shoot, tells Cosmopolitan, “She didn’t need it. She is such a little cutie.”
Tell us something we don’t know. With absolutely perfect eyebrows, buttery skin, and a quizzical expression, North made her Vogue debut in the buff, cradled by a bare-chested Kanye West, whose head rests in Kim’s lap.
Though the reality star did not go makeup-free herself, she did agree to a more minimal look than we’re used to seeing on her. Aaron reveals that Vogue creative director Grace Coddington “wanted to simplify her look because Kim is naturally gorgeous.”
For that reason, Aaron says they stayed away from the contouring techniques Kim’s beauty team so frequently uses in her makeup routine. “She has such a beautiful complexion and I really wanted that to show through,” he explains. However, they did apply a smoky look to her eyes to accentuate her “amazing lashes.”
Are you as relieved as we are to hear North isn’t being subjected to your typical Kardashian beauty routine just yet?
