Kim says she was about 14 years old when their late dad, Robert Kardashian, hired a professional makeup artist to give them lessons.
"He said, 'My daughters are going to start to wear makeup and I want you guys to look at least presentable,' which I thought was really cool," she says in a new interview with Jane Pratt's website, xoJane.com. "And we've turned out to be the biggest trannies because of it."
"We had like publicists and people who would tell us, 'Girls, tone it down. Stop wearing all the makeup,'" Kim said. "But then we would read on our blogs—like in the comments and everything—and everyone was like, 'What lipstick is this, what mascara do you use?' We were like, 'We love makeup—so why try and be what we are not?'"
Khloé cracked, "We joke and say we are like trannies because we love hair and makeup."
But could they do without it? Probably. "I don't think we necessarily need it, but we love it," Khloé said. "But Kim definitely, if you take off what's on her face, her face is the exact same. She doesn't need it. It's just like a mind thing to her."
We have to agree. We've seen Kim's face up close and we gotta say her skin is flawless.
