When I think of contouring, I think of Kim Kardashian. Contouring sculpts and enhances the face. Using makeup, you can accentuate or minimize facial features. It’s makeup magic! Find out how to do it below.
Kim Kardashian’s Contour — Shares Makeup Tricks On Instagram
Kim posted this photo on her Instagram on March 30, writing “Kontour!!!! Not finished with my make up yet but wanted to share a pic of some contouring make up tricks!”
One of Kim’s favorite makeup artists Mario Dedivanovic uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in Medium on Kim. As seen in Kim’s photo, you’ll want to draw lines down either side of your nose with a shade 2-3 tones darker than your skin tone. This gives the illusion of a longer, slimmer nose. You can also apply the darker shade under your cheekbones to exaggerate them.
The key is to BLEND. Kim actually had a mini contouring malfunction while in Paris.
You can also apply the contour on your jawline to define and slim your face.
Dab a highlighter on the top of cheekbones, your cupid’s bow and down the center of the nose for a dewy finish. And voila!

Mario posted a photo of Kim with the perfect cat eye on his Instagram on March 29 and wrote: “Makeup tip 🎈🎉🎊 for a classic winged eyeliner look, try using a pencil or cream liner first to perfect your line, then follow with a liquid liner to intensify. I like @maccosmetics liner in boot black ✔️ #MakeupByMario.”
