Kim Kardashian Contouring

You’ve probably seen the Kim Kardashian contouring pictures allllllllllllllllll over the internet.

She claims that she applies her foundation, then applies an extremely light concealer to certain areas of her face, followed by a much darker concealer or bronzer to other areas and blends them to create a flawless contoured and sculpted face that gives you cheekbones like nothing else!

Last Sunday when we were feeling a little worse for wear after our night out (post here) we decided to give it a go and here are the results!

Firstly we applied our foundation as normal (I used Rimmel Wake Me Up and M used Revlon Colorstay)

Then we applied the lightest concealer we owned to our foreheads, under eyes, nose and chin:

As were both really pale, the concealer wasn’t as light as it could have been so maybe we’d be better off investing in an almost white one, if anyone’s got any ideas of a super light concealer let us know!

Next you apply a darker concealer or bronzer to under your jaw line, the sides of your nose, temples, and also in the hollow of your cheek bones:

At this point we were reeeeeeeeeeeeeally freaked out at how ridiculous we looked and weren’t really sure what it was going to turn out like!

We used my St Tropez bronzer as we didn’t have anything else dark enough and it actually worked quite well.

For future use though we both think a super dark concealer or liquid bronzer would work much easier and blend to give a better finish.

After applying both of these products to your face in this really quite hilarious way (we wondered if it was just a big joke on us….) you then take whatever brush you have to buff and blend the products into your foundation giving a look like below:

As you can see our faces look a lot more contoured and we have cheekbones to die for all because of this simple (if a little time consuming!) trick.

We carried on and applied our make up in a KK style, lots of eyeliner, super lashes and defined brows!

And don’t forget the nude lippie… (Creme Cup if you were wondering!)

So what do you think??? Here’s the final look:

It makes me laugh looking at the photos as we even have similar poses without even knowing it!

Also check out the difference between our skin colours just by using different phones, the iPhone definitely makes you look more orange!

We loved the look this contouring effect gave us and would definitely use it more often.

However it’s a little time consuming for every day and maybe not to wear to the labs…..

What do you think? Would you try this effect on your face for a Saturday night out?

I will definitely be using it more!!
