Contouring is quickly becoming the most popular makeup trend of 2015. If you haven't gotten on board yet, have no fear. Kim Kardashian posted a contouring selfie on her Instagram that shows us all how to get her signature makeup look, so you can now attempt the technique on your own (it's easier than it looks!).
Walking into Sephora the other day, I was so overwhelmed by the hundreds of flesh-colored creams on display, while being bombarded by salespeople asking if I wanna to "get contoured". Clearly, this has become a huge deal, and who better to show us the ropes than the queen of contouring herself?
Kim captioned the close-up photo, "Kontour!!!! Not finished with my make up yet but wanted to share a pic of some contouring make up tricks!" Thanks for looking out Kimmy! With a quick glance at the picture, you can easily tell that she has got a lot of makeup on, but that's because the product hasn't been properly blended yet. Even so, you can see the intricate and laborious work that goes into the look. Yes, doing Kim's makeup really is an art form.
Don't believe me? Just take a look at how her face is transformed below.
Wow. Her nose is visibly longer and narrower, her cheekbones look elevated, and her eyes just pop. Imagine how she'll look once this is all blended in? This is the secret to looking youthful forever, people, so I suggest we all hop on the bandwagon.
According to The Daily Mail, Kim's makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, is the mastermind behind her face. To achieve this look at home he told Mail, "Always use a beauty blender sponge to blend in the layers of the product. I apply some along her cheek bones to give a dewy effect, on the bridge of her nose and Cupid's bow and I also sweep it along her decolletage, shoulders and arms."
Well there you have it folks, the secret to getting Kim's gorgeous contoured cheekbones is out, and you can totally do it yourself at home.
