We’ve talked about Kim Kardashian’s makeup contouring trick before (most notably about the tips she gave in this funny video of her playing around with makeup on a magazine editor) but yesterday she tweeted out pictures that really show exactly how it all goes down.
Here’s the series.
First tweet: “Wanna see how @scottbarnes68 contours?!”
Second tweet: “Try this at home.”
Third tweet: “The finished product!!!”
4th Tweet: “During and after.”
As you can see, he uses a much lighter shade down her nose and across it (well before you hit the tip) and under her eyes, then a much darker shade underneath and down the sides of her nose and under her cheekbones. Then he puts foundation on overtop to hide all the magic. You can see a diagram of exactly what goes where here.
It’s an effective trick that makeup artists have been using for years to mold people’s faces without surgery. Have you ever tried it before?
