A few years ago, if you asked us what contouring was we’d stare blankly into space and probably give you an awkward smile. But thanks Kim Kardashian aka the OG of contouring, who is solely responsible for opening up a whole new beauty obsession with bronzers, concealers and highlighters, we are now acquainted with the airbrushed look.
However, according to Kim herself, we should wipe our makeup brushes clean from the trend we’ve so eagerly learned to love.
In a recent chat with Charlotte Tilbury at Vogue Festival, Kim’s admitted she’s no longer interested in the whole contouring sitch.
“I think right now it's more about nontouring, like real skin with less make-up on it,” Kim explains. So basically, she’s going for a more au naturel look. And just like that, with one sentence she changes up the beauty game.
And it’s a beauty theory her hubby supports. “I'm trying to wear less... and my husband loves me without make-up… Now when I travel I just bring a small make-up case, and I'm content with that.”
While Kim’s cutting back on intense-level contouring shiz she says she reckons she won’t give it up all at once, “I love contouring and I don't think I'd stop contouring my nose - I know people think I've had a nose job but it really is just make-up!"
Hmm, so we're a little confused RN.
Okay, so maybe we can just calm our farm when it comes to contouring then?
