Kim Kardashian

While we often wonder if the Kardashian sisters could single-handedly keep the cosmetics industry in business with their heavily-painted faces, Kim Kardashian pared down for the 2011 SAG Awards with a softer, nude look and we're totally digging it.

The reality TV star tweeted early in the day that she was ditching her trademark hair extensions and false eyelashes for the red carpet evening.

Opting for an elegant updo, her raven locks were swept to one side in a loose chignon that allowed a pair of dangly Lorraine Schwartz earrings to truly sparkle and the style also complemented her Grecian-inspired Marchesa gown.

For her face, Kardashian kept things simple with a creamy foundation and matte cheeks. Eyes
were left fairly clean, with a thin swipe of black eyeliner to frame them and a touch of shimmer on the inner corners for brightness. The length and volume of her feathery lashes make us wonder if the mogul-in-the-making fibbed about eliminating the falsies for the evening, and if she's telling the truth, shame on her for hiding these natural beauties all this time.

Kardashian's pout was filled in with a nude hue and gives off just a hint of gloss.
