Kardashian is aware her nose contour ‘looks crazy’ sometimes

During a makeup tutorial for Vogue’s Beauty Secrets YouTube series, Kardashian gives fans an inside look at her beauty routine, beginning with her fresh makeup-free face.

Along the way, True adorably “helps” her mom as Kardashian applies products and shows her makeup techniques. One of those techniques is contouring her nose, which creates the illusion of a smaller nose — no plastic surgery required!

Kardashian shows how she contours her nose

During the video, Kardashian explains, “One of my favorite things is nose contour. But this does stress me out a little bit. In person and how cameras reflect and light, everything looks different, so sometimes I will contour my nose and in real life I think I look so good and then in some photos I look crazy!”

She also discussed how different people who do her makeup have “their own technique,” adding, “and I do know that some people make my face look different. I think that’s really cool. I just think it’s what makeup is supposed to do.”

Kardashian uses a small brush as part of what she calls her “nose contour for dummies” process, drawing lines along her nose from the eyebrow down and, just like that, she achieves a slimmer nose.

Another contouring trick is the use of her (admittedly very old) M.A.C. Cosmetics Contour Palette, which she uses a shade from and applies it along her jawline to make her face look smaller.

She explains: “Especially after baby, when you have had a baby [and] you’re working on losing weight, and you’re still not losing that much weight. [In] your face you just feel so big. This I swear is like a magic eraser. I sit here and I’m just like, ‘Please go away! Come again another day. Please! Or just don’t come!’”

Kardashian keeps it real

Fans are guessing that Kardashian’s demonstration of contouring addresses the rumors that she’s gotten a nose job, which she touched on last year on Instagram when a fan asked if she got her “nose done or just really fleeky contouring.”

Kardashian gave a very honest answer, explaining: “One day I think I’ll get one because I think about it every day. But I’m scared so for now it’s all about contour.”

She addressed another fan’s comment about her nose as well, sharing that it’s “Great contouring!! ”and explaining that “we go overboard but my nose spread during pregnancy so I’m just waiting for it to go back lol.”

Looking beautiful, Kardashian explained in the video, is basically a job requirement, as she shared: “Stuff breaks out in this family all the time, so you just always wanna be cute and prepared — even in trauma or tragedy you wanna look good.”
