It's Official: Kim Kardashian Is Done With Contouring

Updated 05/02/17

Brace yourselves, for we have important beauty news. As any makeup obsessive knows, Kim Kardashian is synonymous with the contouring trend. She was the face that launched (probably) a million defined cheekbones. But Kardashian is finally hanging up her multi-tonal palette. Speaking at the Vogue Festival in London this weekend, the reality star revealed that she's totally over contouring, and now favours the nontouring trend instead. 

"I think right now it's more about nontouring, like real skin with less makeup on it. I'm trying to wear less... and my husband loves me without makeup," Kardashian revealed.

As if the revelation that contouring's poster girl is giving up wasn't shocking enough, Kardashian also divulged that she's become better at packing her beauty products when she's travelling, putting all of us to shame with her now very streamlined makeup bag.

"When I travel I just bring a small makeup case, and I'm content with that. I'm really into strobing now, so just highlighting the skin without using bronzer."

So what else does one of the world's most photographed women pack in her travel makeup bag? "An eyelash curler, a mini Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the perfect nude that she created for me, mascara—Charlotte's Legendary Lashes is my favourite—my Joe Blasco foundation, a little MAC kabuki brush, a gold eye pencil by Kardashian Beauty, a small pot of powder, blush and my Smashbox bronzer."

So there you have it. Contouring is officially dead. The one saving grace? We got the inside scoop on the products Kim K does still use, so those die-hard kontourers (a word we just coined) can readjust their own beauty bags accordingly.
