Kyle richards fashion style
Since I’ve already done Lisa Vanderpump (twice for LVP actually) and Erika Jayne aka Erika Girardi I figured the next Real Housewife of Beverly Hills whose beauty secrets we all want to know is obviously Kyle Richards aka Kyle Richards Umansky. I have scoured the internet for any and all interviews with Kyle about her favorite beauty products, makeup, hair care, skin care, etc. and have put them all together for your enjoyment here!
What’s your beauty mantra in five words or less?
“When in doubt, do without!” (source)
Kyle Richards’ Makeup
When asked what Kyle has changed since being on TV she said “I don’t even wear that much for the show. I usually just wear a little mascara and a little liner. When people tell me I look good in a scene, I realize, Oh, that’s when I didn’t have that much makeup on, so maybe I’ll wear a little less of that. And I work out more, because I don’t like seeing myself gain weight on TV.” [source]Kyle Richards’ Glow up!
Kyle is a huge makeup lover and recently converted her home gym into a closet/dressing room/vanity. [source]Kyle Richards in her home closet/vanity.
Kyle Richards Lip Gloss and Lipstick
DC: Name the one item of makeup you always wear.
KR: Lip gloss. I am not a big makeup person but when I put on some lip gloss I feel put together. [source]
Just like Erika Jayne and Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards loves a lipgloss and one of her favorites is Trish McEvoy Lip Gloss in Irresistible () [source] Cameran Eubanks from Southern Charm is also a big Trish McEvoy fan.Trish McEvoy lip gloss in Irresistible is a favorite of Kyle Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Kyle says “I use Buxom – it really makes your lips look fuller!” [source] She loves all the colors including Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Tonya (). She says they tingle which plumps your lips. [source]Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Tonya
I would bet Kyle uses Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Alexis () for her go-to peachy-pink nude lips.Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Alexis Kyle Richards looking gorgeous in a nude lip gloss
I also spotted on her vanity a Dior lip gloss that looks like it might be Dior ‘Addict’ Ultra-Gloss in 363 Nude (). Her co-star Erika Jayne loves Dior lip gloss as does Tinsley Mortimer of Real Housewives of New York City.
Kyle says Makeup Forever is one of her favorite brands and she loves Make Up For Ever Lip Blush (). [source]

Who could forget when Kyle Richards wore MAC’s Fashion Revival lipstick on Watch What Happens Live and everyone called in to find out what the color was? [source]Kyle Richards on WWHL wearing MAC Fashion Revival Lipstick
Unfortunately it was limited edition, but a close dupe to this gorgeous deep berry purple would be MAC Lipstick in Rebel ().MAC Lipstick in Rebel is a dupe for the Limited Edition MAC Lipstick in Fashion Revival. Kyle Richards wearing MAC lipstick in Russian Red on Watch What Happens Live
Another bold and beautiful MAC lipstick Kyle Richards has worn is the classic MAC Lipstick in Russian Red (). [source]MAC lipstick in Russian Red.
Kyle Richards has also rocked MAC’s Lipstick in Ruby Woo (). I have and love both Russian Red and Ruby Woo they’re so beautiful! Russian Red is more of a True Red while Ruby Woo has slightly orange undertones for more of a bold look! Kyle is also wearing MAC All That Glitters eyeshadow () in this photo.

Kyle Richards Blush Bronzer and Highlighter
Kyle Richard’s blush favorite: The Balm Hot Mama! Blush () – Kyle says every makeup artist she shows this to ends up buying it and I can see why- this looks like a super flattering peachy shade that would look great on just about any skin color [source]. Check out more of my recommendations from theBalm here.
Kyle’s makeup artist Pamela has also used Cle de Peau Beaute Cream blush in #1 Cranberry () to give her a more intense flush for a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills interview look.Cle de Peau Beaute Cream Blush in #1 Cranberry gave Kyle Richards a more intense flush for a RHOBH interview look.

Another beautiful highlight Kyle’s makeup artist has used on her is from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit which is now sold out, but a similar option is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit ().Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Sun Dipped Glow
Kyle Richards Concealer and Foundation
Kyle says it took her a while to come around and finally use a beautyblender () for applying foundation, but now she can’t live without it. She even carries it in her makeup bag for touch ups. [source] Plus her co-star Erika Jayne is a spokeswoman for beautyblender.Beauty Blender
Kyle loves the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit () to cover up dark under eye circles and brighten under the eyes. This kit has a creamy concealer and a powder which is great for touch-ups on the go. [source] The orange under tones are perfect for cancelling out blue and purple tones under the eyes.

One of Kyle Richard’s foundation favorites is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick () [source]. After remembering that Jessie James Decker loves this foundation too I’m wondering why I haven’t tried it yet!Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick
Thierry Pourtoy, one of Kyle’s makeup artists says that Kyle is beautiful without makeup and has great skin, so he goes light on the foundation. He uses Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover foundation on her which is known for high coverage and camera-ready skin, and powder only on the T-Zone [source]. Pamella Brogardi used shades 128+140 on Kyle Richards in the BTS photo above [source].Make Up Forever HD Foundation

For this smokey eye interview look on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills makeup artist Pamella Brogardi used MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Fathom’s Deep ()
and Lorac ‘Unzipped Gold’ eyeshadow palette (). This palette is so gorgeous. The colors would work great from everyday to special events and would be perfect to travel with.LORAC Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette. Photo from temptalia.com
Red Cherry Lashes in style 103Kyle says she wears MAC’s Satin Taupe eyeshadow in the opening titles of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The purple undertones are great for hazel and green eyes [source].
Pamella has used the Stila ‘Perfect Me, Perfect Hue” Palette in Medium/Tan () on Kyle’s interview look as well.Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Palette in Medium/Tan
Kyle’s lashes are Red Cherry in #103.
Kyle’s Lashes are Red Cherry in style 747 (). Check out my post on False Lashes for Beginners.Red Cherry Lashes in Style 747
Kyle wore Red Cherry False Eyelashes in Lottie (.95) to the Oscars this year.Red Cherry False Eyelashes in Lottie #28. Kyle Richards wore these fake lashes to the Oscars this year!
After noticing that strip lashes can make you look older, Kyle now prefers individuals at the end for a more natural, younger look [source]. I recommend the MAC 30 Lash individuals () which have short, medium, and long lash lengths. Lisa Vanderpump is also a fan of individual false eyelashes.
For mascara, Kyle is a fan of the cult classic and super affordable L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara ()[source]
She also like’s Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara () [source].
One surprising beauty product Kyle Richards uses is Vaseline on the tops of her lashes because they get dry from makeup or crying too much. [source] Cynthia Bailey from Real Housewives of Atlanta is a big Vaseline lover as well.
In her makeup bag Kyle has Urban Decay black eyeliner (). [source]
I love that Kyle’s mom told her long hair and eyebrows are her signature look so she shouldn’t mess with them. For her brows, Kyle says she used to go to Anastasia Beverly Hills religiously, but said they just stopped growing back. [source]Kyle Richards’ glow up is real! Photo from US Weekly
Kyle uses Benefit’s Gimme Brow + Volume Eyebrow Gel (). This is a tinted brow gel with microfibers that add volume to the brow and help it look defined and filled in. I love this stuff!Benefit Gimme Brow
“I am old school; I don’t look at makeup tutorials on You Tube. I prefer to look at books by Kevyn Aucoin.”[source]
Kyle Richards’ Skin Care
Kyle says she gets laser treatments to help with fine lines and brown spots. She regrets sun exposure when younger and always wears sunscreen now. [source]
Kyle admits to using Botox (which I just got in Beverly Hills at Alchemy43 and have been loving), but doesn’t believe in fillers. [source]Kyle Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills looking radiant
She also likes glycolic acid in her skin care (just like Sonja Morgan) which is an exfoliant that helps shed layers of dead skin to make it smoother [source]. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant () would be a great option to try to get Kyle Richards’ amazing skin.Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant
To prep Kyle’s skin for a full face of flawless makeup, Pamela uses Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment (). Thirstymud uses hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate for a dewy, glowing complexion.Glamglow THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment is a great mask to use before doing a full face of makeup.
“I also like to use a heavy moisturizer with vitamin C. I really love Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu (). It reduces fine lines and spots without having to layer on ten different products.” [source]Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Moisturizer
Kyle’s makeup artist Pamela also has used Vitamin C infused Sunday Riley CEO Protect + Repair Moisturizer () on Kyle. [source]Sunday Riley CEO CE Protect + Repair Moisturizer
Kyle Richards’ mom taught her to always remove her makeup before bed so she is fanatical about it. She uses wipes to remove makeup [source]. Kyle loves MAC so she may like the MAC Wipes ().MAC Makeup Removing Wipes
Kyle uses her Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System (9) to wash her face after a heavy makeup day to make sure she can get it all off. [source]Clairisonic Skin Cleansing Set
“I never ever use soap on my face,” Kyle said. “I use Dr. Paul Nassif’s exfoliating cleanser (). I just use a little bit. But it’s a great cleanser and not too rough. My daughter even steals it from me!” [source]Nassif MD Bio-Rhythmic Skincare Dawn to Dusk Exfoliating Cleanser
Kyle has dry skin and carries Nassif MD Peri-Orbital Complex () in her purse to keep her under eye area hydrated. [source]Nassif MD Peri-Orbital Complex Revitalizing Eye Creme
Kyle Richard’s Facialist
One not-so-standard beauty procedure Kyle Richards’ facialist Carina Tajinian gives her is electric facials. They use electrical current to lift and firm the muscles of the face. [source]Kyle Richards getting an electric facial.
She has also posted on Instagram about getting a 24 karat gold facial.
She also likes microdermabrasion which I’ve posted about before here. [source]Kyle Richards looking snatched in a high pony on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
One affordable mask Kyle uses at home that’s not made out of literal gold is the St. Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask. [source]
Kyle Richards’ Hair
Kyle’s secret to having the best hair in Beverly Hills is that she doesn’t use a lot of heat, won’t put tools on highest temperature, and she doesn’t like a lot of product because it dulls shine. She’s also fanatical about brushing her hair slowly from the bottom up and then brush through. She tells her daughters to stop brushing if you hear that snag sound because hair will break and not come back. [source] I would guess Kyle uses a fancy Mason Pearson hair brush.Mason Pearson Hairbrush
“‘I’m always tell my girls, ‘you have to baby your hair.’ I use a paddle brush, and not too much heat or product – that dulls the shine. I don’t blow dry it every day, and I’ll also leave a little bit of conditioner in it sometimes.” [source]Kyle Richards in a gorgeous curled ponytail at the premier of The Apprentice. Photo from @glambypamelab on Instagram.
Unlike Erika Jayne and Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards says “I’ve had no [hair] extensions ever,” she says. “They are bad for your hair and fortunately I’ve never needed any.”[source]
And when she says less is more she means it. “I don’t use hairspray,” she told us. “I don’t wash it every day. When I’m not filming I don’t use a blow dryer at all. I’ll just wash it, and let it dry naturally after I tie it in a knot.” [source]
Kyle Richards has said many times in the past that she uses
Pantene shampoo and conditioner, but recently she swears by sulfate-free shampoo [source] and I would imagine she would use something fancy like the Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo ().
Kyle has also said she uses Pantene for her hair and Nourage vitamins () to keep her hair long and strong. [source]
She uses a Brazilian blowout conditioner [source] like the Brazilian Blowout Acai Anti-Frizz Conditioner ().
For deep conditioning Kyle likes Macadamia hair masks () [source] like the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Masque.
Kyle uses Moroccan hair oil () to keep flyaways in place. [source]

Kyle Richards’ Diet and Exercise Secrets
You look phe-nom-en-al! What’s your key to staying fresh-faced and young? “Eating right and exercising — what you put in your body reflects what you look like on the outside.” [source]Kyle Richards doing her famous split
Kyle has a full-on fitness schedule with only one day off a week – Soul Cycle twice a week, hiking twice a week and a new rowing class twice a week. “It’s the new spinning,” she says. “I just discovered it. They dim the lights and you really get into it.” [source]
Kyle’s says “I eat almost no sugar,” and she also limits carbs. [source]Kyle Richards looking bronzed and beautiful
One of her super sneaky beauty tricks to looking thinner? A spray tan. When she wants to do it at home she uses L’Oreal Sublime Bronze (). [source]L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Mist
Kyle’s ultimate “fountain of youth” product? Good ol’ water. [source]
Kyle Richards’ Perfume
On Kyle’s perfume tray I see Chanel No 5, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, I also spotted on her vanity the beautiful gold bottle of Victor & Rolf Rose Explosion perfume. [source]Kyle Richards’ perfume tray in Parade
What’s your signature scent?”I swear by something called IF by Apothia.” () BTW I totally spotted this at Fred Segal at the international terminal in LAX! [source]IF by Apothia
And your favorite nonperfume smell? “I love the smell of Christmas.” [source]
