This Is How To Contour Like A Kardashian


Posted on

We all envy that Kim Kontour. I mean, let's be serious — those are cheekbones from the GODS. So three of us here at BuzzFeed decided to try our best at reaching that Kardashian perfection.

Step 1: Apply a base coat of foundation.

After moisturizing the skin, use a brush to apply liquid foundation and blend evenly all over the face. Then use a concealer to cover up dark circles, scars, and/or blemishes.

Step 2: Shape eyebrows.

Filling in and shaping brows can do wonders. Using an eyebrow pencil one shade lighter than your natural hair, fill in the eyebrows from the head to the tail. You can find more in-depth directions for how to shape your brows here.

After applying a base foundation, you're ready to start contouring!

Step 3: Apply highlighter to every spot on your face where the sun would naturally hit: the bridge of the nose, center of the forehead, the cheekbones, the chin, and the Cupid's bow.

Step 4: Apply the dark contour makeup to the places on the face where there is usually a shadow: the hollows of the cheekbones, around the hairline, the outside of the nose, and along the jawline.


Step 5: Using a brush or your fingers, blend the highlighter and bronzer.

Make sure that you don't completely blend the dark and light off of your face. There should be a gradual shadow happening once you're done.

Step 6: If you've blended a little too much, add a bit more bronzer to the hollows of your cheekbones to make them really pop.
