The American reality TV star suffered a shocking case of sunburn last week after falling asleep in the Mexican sun.
With the help of a thick covering of foundation, artfully applied blusher and lashings of mascara, she was ready to face the camera.
On her twitter page Kim revealed the helping hand of her make-up artist, writing: 'I'm getting glammed up by makeupbymario and about to go live on the CW!
The 28-year-old, who with her sisters appears in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, teamed her carefully made-up face with glossy wavy hair and a patterned shift dress.
Last week she used her Twitter page to reveal her tanning mishap.
The curvy brunette - who claims she never usually burns - admitted she was subject to taunting from her boyfriend, NFL star Reggie Bush, and his friends, who couldn't help but poke fun at her two-toned hue.
She said: 'I am so sunburned and need help!
'I'm in Mexico and I was sunbathing when I fell asleep with my huge Prada butterfly sunglasses on and now look at me! I'm going to have to hide from cameras for days.
'My whole body is burned but my face looks the worst because of the glasses. I will never wear sunglasses when sunbathing again!'
'Everyone here is making fun of me! Look at Reggie's teammate and friend Bobby starting with the jokes.'
