In today’s slightly odd, truly fascinating piece of beauty news, Kylie Jenner has revealed that she contours not only her cheeks, collarbones, neck and cleavage, but also her ears.
Yes, just when you thought those Kardashians had contoured every part of their bodies they could possibly contour, Kylie has spoken of the new-found virtues of ear makeup.
In her latest makeup tutorial video, posted on her website KylieJenner.com, Kylie works with makeup artist Hrush Achemyan and the pair explain why it is so important to polish up your ears, and how to do it.
‘I like when you do my ears,’ Kylie says as they start to work up from the cheekbones with a variety of chiselling tools.
‘Actually, it’s a really big tip a lot of people don’t do,’ Hrush explains. ‘Because it’s really not cute when you’re on the red carpet, or you get snapped, and your face is one colour, and your ears are different.’
‘It shows the tone is not really your skin tone, and you have on a lot of foundation. Just like your neck, your ears are a part of your face.’
So there is actually a valid reason, of sorts. We can totally appreciate that our ears do need to match our face, and if we’ve illuminated our front profile with all kinds of highlights, then we might want the side to bare the same style of light and shade.
She starts with a blend of Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation Luminator and Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, illuminated with strategically placed highlights from the Kryolan Dermacolor Mini Palette.
Chanel’s Tan du Soleil Bronzing Base is then used to deliver the darker contouring tones, and Hrush warns viewers to apply this lightly, as Kylie’s ‘not feeling the heavy contouring look anymore.’
Using a Japonesque brush, she then applies Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder to matte Kylie’s face.
Finally they brush on Tom Ford Bronzing Powder, Nars blush in Orgasm and the Cinnamon color from the Anastasia Contour Kit, to cheeks and up over the ears.
Conclusion? There really is nothing in this world that can’t be contoured.
