Why I support Kim Kardashian and her dream of becoming a lawyer

Kim Kardashian West has made headlines lately, as she announced that she wants to become a lawyer. A lot of people are attacking her all over social media and I cannot understand why. Perhaps it is not my duty to understand those who I am nothing like nor is it my duty to celebrate their hateful comments. I cannot understand why no one is happy for this woman and her dream to become an attorney.

Kardashian wants to take the bar exam by 2022, as this has been a long term goal for the reality star. Her father was known as one of the greatest litigators ever in the state of California, so it is evident by her reasons for wanting to practice law stem from him as the source of inspiration. 

A lot of people are questioning how it is possible to become an attorney with barely any education let alone academic credentials, as most attorneys attend law school for years before ever practicing. Although the vast majority of status quo who want to become attorneys attend law school, there are quite a few who do not. Back in the 1700's, most lawyers started out as novitiates. They worked as apprentices and studied independently. 

So because this study still applies today, Kardashian would only be required to take less than two years of college, but she would need to take the CLEP (or College Level Examinations Program) tests and score a 50 or higher. These tests are administered by the college board and have quite a few requirements. 

Additionally, Kim would have to take two additional exams that are related to one of the following subjects: Business, Composition and Literature, History and Social Science, Foreign Language, Mathematics and Science. She would have to pass these exams with a grade of 50 or higher to practice law. 

The state of California supports this type of studying. Additional states which support this particular method include: Virginia, Vermont and Washington. These four states are the only states which allow this. This level of study is a little out of the box and if I am being honest, a little unorthodox; however, it is effective and shouldn't hinder one from being successful in this field. 

Although Kim Kardashian West should have no issues getting clients, there will be many that object to this simply because they don't support this level of studying. Some will not her credentials and will want someone with more experience, etc. I believe; however, Kim will do just fine. She wants to step into her father's shoes and has every right to do so. She is doing something great with her fame. She made a sex tape in her past. Why should she be judged for something that happened about 15 years ago?

I support anyone with a goal and I believe everyone has the right to achieve it, as I believe everyone deserves to be happy in whatever profession they choose. I think it would be fantastic to see her very successful with this, especially this field of study.

Kim Kardashian really blew up the spotlight this evening at the MTV Video Music Awards. Wearing a simple yet sultry sheer black dress courtesy of John Galliano. As her hair laid low, it still looked amazing; however, Kim's makeup really slayed bringing the entire look together. It is no surprise that celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic touched Kardashian's face tonight, as he consistently delivers some of the best looks for the reality star. For tonight, Dedivanovic wanted Kim to look like a Greek Goddess, with a dewy complexion and a natural glow.

So, is it possible recreate Kim's makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Dedivanovic prepped the beautiful Kardashian's skin with the Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Cream. This product was used to give Kim's skin a soft, moisturized base. As Dedivanovic continued, he applied the Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Maple to even out Kardashian's complexion and give her a “lit from within” glow.

As he continued, the celebrity makeup artist dusted the Laura Mercer Translucent Loose Setting Powder all over her t-zone. Then, Dedivanovic contoured Kim’s hairline, nose and cheekbones using the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-03 to give her skin a sun-kissed, radiant glow.

To give the cheeks a Summer-like, peach flush, the celebrity makeup artist lightly dusted the Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper. Dedivanovic, then, applied the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Addiction to the inner corners of Kim’s eyes and on her cupid’s bow to brighten her complexion. As he continued with Kardashian's makeup look, he dusted the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Devotion along her cheeks to highlight her striking cheekbones.

Moving right along, Dedivanovic, then gave Kardashian's skin a warm glow using the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in both Addiction and Devotion on her chest, collarbone and legs. To finish the face, he lightly spritzed the reality beauty's complexion with Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, giving her skin a fresh gleam.

The eyes are the mirror to the soul. To make Kardashian's eyes look sultry and bronzed, the celebrity makeup artist lightly swept the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow across the lid. He, then, applied the Copper shade from the Laura Mercier Eye Art Caviar Colour-Inspired Palette on the outer corners of the eye and across the lower lash line to make her eyes pop. As he continued with the makeup look, specially the eyes he applied the Laura Mercier Brow Dimension Fiber Infused Colour Gel in Brunette to the outer corners of her brows, using a mascara wand to create more drama and apply a thicker layer of product. He then colored the middle of the brows with gel, using light strokes to create a softer look.

To complete the look, Dedivanovic lined the lips with the Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Hazelnut Tea before applying the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual.


Congratulations! You have just recreated Kim Kardashian's makeup look for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. #VMAs

Get the hair look: Kim Kardashian's mile-high glam breakdown

Kim Kardashian is one of the most beautiful women alive and quite possibly the most popular socialite on the planet. What started as an idea, turned into reality for the television personality. In a recent retreat, Kardashian took her glam squad on a mile-high adventure to the Hamptons. The glam squad consists of a variety of gifted beauty enthusiasts including the talented hairstylist Justine Marjan. Just recently Marjan was able to create a haute hair look featuring a messy topknot to complement Kardashian's curve hugging dress.

So, is it possible to re-create this amazing hair look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, you want wash, condition and blow dry the hair. As part of the preparation, Marjan applied the Paul Mitchell Dry Wash and Spray Wax to Kardashian's hair to prep it. Now, taking the Paul Mitchell Marulaoil Detangling brush, Marjan started brushing the beautiful reality star's hair.

As Marjan continued she, split Kardashian's hair into two sections with the topmost section from ear to the crown of her head. Then, the celebrity hairstylist gathered the top section of the hair into an ultra high ponytail, leaving loose some strands around the hairline before securing Kardashian's hair with an elastic.

Then, taking the Paul Mitchell Marulaoil Classic Dressing brush, Marjan gathered the bottom half of Kardashian's hair and attached the top ponytail with a hair bungee. Next, she applied the Paul Mitchell Dry Wax throughout the length of the ponytail and rough up with fingers.

Once Marjan accomplished this, she started to twist and knot Kardashian's hair into a topknot, securing with bobby pins and french pins to hold the hair. Then, she pulled loose any stray strands around the nape of the next, before finishing the hair look with the Paul Mitchell Marulaoil Perfecting Hairspray.

Congratulations! You have just re-created Kim Kardashian's mile-high glam breakdown.
