I was watching GMA this morning and they were discussing the biggest trend in make up right now: contour make up. They did a tutorial and it got me thinking is this something that would look good out on the streets or is it really only something that Kim Kardashian can pull off?

I will admit I have always lusted over Kim Kardashian’s amazing make up looks but I also am not sure it would look good on me. Kim had loaded this picture on to Instagram back in March, showing what she looks like while getting her make up done. Contouring is Kim’s secret to her amazing cheek bones. As you can see her eyes, eyebrows and lips are done first. The contouring of her cheeks is saved for last.

To get this done Kim sucks in her cheeks making a fish face. This is how you find the natural hollow of your cheeks. Then they take a dark bronzer and contour her cheek bones. The most important step is the highlighting. They then highlight around the contoured area, hitting the upper cheek, under eye and bottom of her jaw bone. To do this you must use a matte while high lighter that is 2-3 shades lighter than your skin color. Highlighting around that area gives your cheekbones way more definition.  This make up trick is so hot right now, there are plenty of kits that you can buy out there that include the bronzers and highlighters together. Check out this CARGO Contour Palette. I just may give this a try myself! Have any of you tried out this make up trend?
