Women Are Posting Clown Contouring Selfies To Show The Power of Makeup

    It may have started as a joke, but these clowns mean business.

    YouTube user BellaDeLune recently posted a video tutorial on what she refers to as "clown contouring."

    She describes the technique as "extreme color correction, highlight, and contour."

    But what started out as a joke has quickly turned into a trending technique. Women have been posting their own ~clown~ selfies all over Instagram with the hashtag #ClownContouring.

    And it turns out the results are ridiculously amazing.

    Just take a look at that detail!

    What the...?
