In her weirdly touching letter to Bionic Future Kim Kardashian, 2015 Kim Kardashian says “I trust you’ll still be the queen of contouring.” This seems plausible but plausible in a different way now that—SHARP INHALE—we know Kimmy sometimes wears natural makeup.
While in London to attend a yacht party and descend on a muddy field via helicopter, KK went out with slightly less/different slap on her face than usual. Compare:
This is the work of makeup artist Karin Darnell, who seems to have successfully persuaded the Sultana of Shadow to, for once, use a lighter hand. What’s changed: the dewier-than-ever skin finish, the less-defined hollows of the cheeks, and the plummy-brown “drop shadow,” which is what Kim’s first-ever beauty sensei calls it. What’s stayed: the nude gloss, the tight-lining, and the separated, ultra-long bottom lashes.
You can’t win ’em all, eh, Karin? But you sure can try to get her to copy Kendall, the most well made-up Kardashian except for maybe Caitlyn, and that is enough.
