Kim Kardashian may not be a makeup artist by trade, but she's definitely the celebrity friend I'd call to do my face. (You know, if she'd ever actually return those phone calls.)
While we may not have makeup pros at our fingertips like a Kardashian, Kim's routine makes the contouring process look, well...almost simple. In her new KKW Beauty Instagram tutorial, Kardashian — who starts the video totally barefaced — explains to viewers that it's fairly simple and quick to get the contoured look with minimal products and time. In fact, the video promises a five-minute beauty routine using just the KKW Beauty Contour Kit.
First, she starts with the matte side of the highlighter, then uses a darker shade to define her nose and cheekbones.
"My theory with contouring is that I always go in like a 'three,'" says Kardashian of the shape she paints from her forehead to chin.
Then, as with most makeup tutorials, it's all about getting a killer blend. Kardashian uses a kabuki brush to get even, all-over coverage. But don't just take our word for it — watch the full video below.
“I am older than Kylie. We definitely have a different audience," Kardashian told the outlet. "We do have a lot of similar things — but we aren’t doing the same products, so we won’t run into that overlap. We’re really cautious of that. We work together to make sure that we don’t overlap like that. Ultimately, I think once it launches and people see we are a really different brand, it will be able to co-exist, but be so separate."
Set your alarms to 12 p.m. EST in order to be there when KKW Beauty officially launches. Meanwhile, I'll be over here watching this tutorial over, and over, and over...
