Kim Kardashian may be renowned for her flawless complexion, but the 35-year-old has confessed she regularly breaks the ultimate skincare rule, and regularly goes to bed still wearing her make-up. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star revealed she was inspired by close friend and make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury, who helps her skin recover.
Kim Kardashian revealed she often breaks the golden rule of skincare
"Charlotte Tilbury is my hero because she has never let her husband see her without make-up on," Kim told The Cut. "She sleeps with her make-up on. She's my idol. She's inspired me when I am really lazy and I can't do my make-up the next day, so I'll sleep in my make-up."
She added: "I know that's probably the worst advice but she has all the magic creams to put on the next day to make up for it."
While she may not be following the cardinal rule of skincare, there's no doubt that Kim regularly turns heads on the red carpet with her striking beauty looks. Often hailed as the queen of contouring, the reality TV star – who is currently pregnant with her and husband Kanye West's second child – has always spoken about her passion for all things beauty. "If I wasn't doing what I'm doing now, I would be a make-up artist," she said.

While it may work for Kim, there's no doubt that it's always better to remove your make-up before going to bed. We take a look at the top three reasons why you should always stick to the rule and take your make-up off before bed…
1. Leaving make-up overnight can cause spots
The products can block the pores on your face which produce sebum, responsible for removing dead skin cells and pollutants from the skin. Blocked pores can become infected and inflamed, which can lead to blemishes and redness.
2. It can dry out your skin
When you keep your make-up on during the night, your pores get clogged with dirt and dry out the skin, making it lose its elasticity as it cannot produce collagen and repair itself. This can also lead to wrinkles or a dull-looking complexion.
3. Your eyes can get infected
Eye make-up can be rubbed by your pillow in your sleep and end up in your eyes, causing irritation. The skin around your eyelids can become clogged with bacteria, which can lead to inflammation.
