Kim Kardashian briefly ditched her extensive glam look to make a bare-faced and makeup-free appearance on her TikTok yesterday. The reality star showed herself applying a little skincare from her line, SKKN, and then having a coffee. She commented, “My first tik tok without North. I’m feeling myself!” Over five million people watched, so:
Kardashian made headlines earlier this week for launching a new SKIMS campaign with The White Lotus stars Beatrice Grannò and Simona Tabasco for its Valentine’s Day collection, which fans lauded as a particularly genius marketing move. “I watched The White Lotus and had to have my girls!” she captioned her Instagram unveiling the campaign imagery. “LAUNCHING JANUARY 26: [email protected] VALENTINE’S DAY SHOP. It’s back and sexier than ever, starring breakout stars and real-life best friends @SimonaTabasco and @BeaGranno together for SKIMS.”
She also just posted photos from her daughter Chicago’s elaborate Hello Kitty-themed fifth birthday party on her Instagram—which will surely generate some media coverage too. The decor and level of detail were of course very elaborate, as they usually are for any Kardashian-Jenner party.
Pink carpeting appeared to be brought in along with a “Chicago”-labeled slide and ball pit, Hello Kitty-adorned snacks, and many, many pink balloon arcs. Cherry blossom trees made out of balloons were among some of the party’s most impressive decorations. And “Hello Kitty” herself appeared to pose for photos with guests. “My little Chi Chi’s Hello Kitty Birthday party 💕,” Kardashian captioned the photo carousel.
