In case you didn't already know, Kim Kardashian wears a lot of makeup. But recently on Snapchat, the cosmetics queen showed off what her contour looks like before it's blended — and, honestly, it's pretty freaky!
Captioning the post, "Let the transformation begin," Kim obviously realized this video would come as a bit of a shock to followers, as she's normally seen with absolutely flawless makeup. The mogul has previously broken down her routine, and we're not gonna lie, it's pretty intense. Scroll down for tips and tricks she's given to fans so that you can kontour like a Kardashian!
Step 1: Highlight
She applies highlighter to her nose, cupid’s bow, and under-eye. “This isn’t concealer,” she explains of the matte side of the highlighter. “But I use it like that sometimes.” She also highlights her “laugh lines” to blur them a bit.
Step 2: Contour
Kimmy takes the lighter end of the dark contour stick to outline her forehead and draw a “3” shape down into her cheekbone and along her jawline. She then subtly contours her nose with the lighter end of the medium contour stick.
Step 3: Blend
Mrs. West wets her blending brush and begins to buff out the harsh lines of the contour. “I like to blend into the hairline,” she explains. “Because I love it to be seamless.” Then, with the sponge, Kim blends out the light contour on her nose and the highlight under her eyes.
Step 4: Shimmer Highlight
Finally, Kim takes the shimmery end of the highlighter stick to enhance her cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and the bridge of her nose.
So, there you have it. A step-by-step breakdown of how you can look a little bit more like the pop culture princess.
