Khloe Kardashian's beauty essentials are powder and blotting papers.

The reality TV star always carries the items with her on nights out to ensure she stays shine free and also likes to have a pair of sunglasses with her during the day to add instant glamour.

Quizzed about her beauty must-haves, she said: ''I always carry powder and blotting papers for big nights out - they can be lifesavers. Always carry a huge pair of sunglasses.''

The 29-year-old brunette always opts for a more natural look in the summer and forgoes heavy make-up in favour of a natural, sun-kissed glow and a pop of colour on her lips.

Khloe explained to America's OK! magazine: ''There's no need to wear a full face of make-up and stilettos all day every day. I think if you are sporting a healthy summertime glow, you can definitely wear less make-up. I tend to go lighter on the foundation and eye make-up and just throw on a great lip shade.

''I'm usually a nude lipstick kind of girl but my sister Kourtney always does a pop of colour on her lips. When I tried it, I was instantly hooked.''
