Kim Kardashian’s shortcuts to looking like a million bucks – star spends $170k on surgery, $78k on a tan, & $10k on hair

KIM Kardashian is one of the world’s most photographed women, not least because of her toned physique, long silky hair, glowing skin, and perfect makeup.

The American influencer’s money-spinning brands also rely on her showing off her face and body, meaning time is of the essence when it comes to the reality star’s upkeep.

Kim, 43, shared an image on Instagram on Tuesday showing her posing next to a luxury electric car.

The mom of four’s face was made up to perfection. Her thick, long blonde hair cascaded down her back.

Dressed in a white crop top and figure-hugging pants, Kim showed off her tanned washboard abs.

“Okay, flawless. Love you,” one follower reacted.

“Breathtaking photos and video with your extremely long beautiful and breathtaking long blonde hair!!! Simply stunning!!!!” added another.

“I must say that Kim K is in the best shape ever!!!” said one follower.

While the reality star has no doubt benefitted from good genes, she also has a few shortcuts up her sleeve for looking like a million bucks — and they cost a pretty penny.

BODY IN A BIT

Kim is famed for her incredible physique, not least for her snatched waistline and rounded butt.

Rumors of plastic surgery continue to dominate despite the Hulu star posting proof on Instagram that she goes to the gym.

Her trainer is Senada Greca, who claims she puts Kim through the paces using weights and resistance training.

New York plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Westreich begs to differ.

Kim has worked to create that famous hourglass shape.

“It is certainly possible that she would’ve had some form of breast implantation already done then,” he told The U.S. Sun.

“Kim likely had some augmentations, and so has worked to create that famous hourglass shape,” he added.

Many have also wondered whether Kim got butt implants.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett told The U.S. Sun he thinks Kim may have spent up to $170,000 on various surgeries and procedures.

“She appears to have had liposuction with fat transfer. At one point, her results were overdone and very exaggerated,” he said, suggesting a BBL.

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery – in which excess fat is removed from other parts of the body and injected into the buttocks – can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000.

Later, she was rumored to have reversed her BBL.

SKIN IN SECONDS

Kim’s forever youthful skin suggests cosmetic products like Botox and filler are at play.

“I’m absolutely not against cosmetic surgery,” she told ABC in 2018.

“I’ve previously tried Botox. That’s the only thing that I’ve done,” Kim admitted.

It can be exhausting, trying to keep up with all the various areas of the face.

“From what I can see, Kim may have had Botox, a Botox lip flip, and threads,” added Dr. Barrett, who estimated that she spends between $500 and $25,000 on lasers, peels, and skin tightening.

Botox costs $500 to $1,500 every three months.

“Regarding aging and changing cosmetic treatments, Kim would have to keep her age in mind.

“It can be exhausting, trying to keep up with all the various areas of the face,” he said.

MAKEUP IN MINUTES

Kim’s chiseled features might be thanks to her makeup brand’s Contour and Highlight Kit.

She previously shared her five-minute routine online.

Kim used a KKW highlighting stick to slim her nose using a lighter shade.

“I never had my nose done,” the TV star also said during a 2019 Masterclass by her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, who charges up to $30,000 a session.

But Dr. Barrett isn’t so sure that’s true.

“Kim previously had a bump in her nose, which she’s claimed has been resolved through contouring. This is not, unfortunately, possible with makeup contouring,” he said.

“I would say she’s undergone a very tasteful minimal rhinoplasty.”

TANNED IN TEN

Kim’s everlasting glowing skin is likely due to her use of tanning products.

Kim is said to be a fan of a Los Angeles tanning salon, Isabel Alya.

While favored by celebrities Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz, Kim opts for Alysa’s mousses and mists.

I really genuinely care about looking good.

Her favorite product is the Dolce Glow, $51, which takes up to 15 minutes to apply and can be used on the go.

“I really genuinely care about looking good,” Kim told Allure in 2022.

“I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet,” she added.

Kim also showed off a home tanning bed in 2023, which sparked an online backlash.

“I’m Kim Kardashian — of course I have a tanning bed and a red light bed in my office,” she said in a TikTok video.

Kim later said that the $78,000 bed was used to treat her psoriasis, though that’s not a psoriasis treatment recommended by the National Psoriasis Foundation.

CUTTING IT FINE

Kim’s luscious hair has seen many color changes from black to deep brown and blonde.

Her natural hair, without extensions, reaches just below her shoulder blades.

Kim’s hair stylist, Chris Appleton, has been transforming her mane for years.

For the 2022 Met Gala, he claimed he changed the color in a few hours to match her Marilyn dress.

Kim’s most significant hair shortcut is Keratin bond extensions from Priscilla Valles.

“Oh my god you guys, I just got Priscilla’s new hair extensions. I’ve been using Priscilla for the last, like, six months? And I’m obsessed,” she captioned a 2021 Instagram post.

The extensions Chris uses on Kim don’t come cheap. Her Met Gala ponytail alone cost $10,000, he said.

WIGS IN A WHILE

Kim shared a photo on Instagram in 2020, posing in her walk-in wardrobe.

Her natural hair was pulled back into a neat pony. Days before, she had sported blonde hair.

“My blonde hair was just a wig. Cleaning out my closet and doing @skims fittings today,” she captioned the post.

While Kim continued to rock extensions and wigs and dye her hair, Kylie Jenner first introduced her to wigs.

“I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs,” Kim’s sister told Marie Claire in 2016.

“Kim just used my wig guy last night…I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow,” she added.
