You may have never heard of it, but there is a chance that you have seen it already: It is used during the showdown of the third 'Mission: Impossible' movie with Tom Cruise. We went there on April the 8th and had a nice time. Even though it was cloudy, as you can see in the pictures I took of the town, the views of Zhouzhuang are gorgeous.

In an interview with People Magazine in 2009, Kim said she dated one of MJ's nephews in her teen years. One of the perks: celebrating her milestone at the singer's very own amusement park. "That was the most magical place on earth," she said. "When you drove up, there were baby elephants and chimpanzees in overalls, and there was all the rides. It was everything you can possibly imagine. The memories I have from that place will last for the rest of my life."

She-Queen-Closet-Organizing-Scene

There was a time when she could only dream about attending the Met Gala. Years before she made big bucks with endorsement deals, Kim earned her income by revamping closets for Hollywood's elite. "My closet business came about when I was at my godparents' house, Sugar Ray Leonard and his wife, Bernadette," she said in an interview with Player magazine in 2006. "Bernadette's closet was massive and had so much stuff in it. I said to her, 'You really need to clean out your closet.' Well, we spent the whole night doing that." After word about her skills spread, Cindy Crawford, Serena Williams, Nicky Hilton, and Nicole Richie sought her organizing services, and Brandy and Lindsay Lohan counted on her as their personal stylist.

In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim said that everything in her home "has to be immaculate" in order for her to accomplish everyday tasks. "I can't take a shower unless the bathroom is absolutely spotless; I think I'm totally OCD," she said. "I have a cleaner who comes three times a week, but I always do the cleaning on top of that."

Kim Kardashian has transformed herself from a closet organizer and stylist to a multimillion-dollar brand. If Google’s most recent list of the most searched people is any indication, she’s one of the most famous people in the world.

Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

Product

First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

Liquid
Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
