  • Kourtney Kardashian Narrated The Best Contouring Video Ever

    Kourtney Kardashian recently starred in a video for her personal website, just short of two minutes long, in which she shows her very special, and very slow, method of eating a Kit Kat. One minute and forty-six seconds: That is how long it takes for the eldest Kardashian to consume a single Kit Kat (not even the whole bar). “First of all, it makes you eat less, because you’re eating it so slow,” she says, which is an excellent mentality if your end goal is taking all the joy out of eating a Kit Kat.

  • Hair Contouring Is Officially a Thing

    No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you--the contouring phenomenon has officially branched out into hair color, using highlights, at that, to achieve a more defined face shape. At New York City's Julien Farel Restore Salon, senior colorist Abby Haliti has the technique down to an art form, with Olivia Palermo's enviable color serving as proof.

  • Issey Miyake Just Took Contouring to a Whole New Level

    Let’s face it: Contouring isn’t going anywhere. And just when we thought we’ve seen every iteration of the face-sculpting technique, we get introduced to a bewildering but beautiful form at Issey Miyake’s spring 2017 show during Paris Fashion Week. Alex Box, whose magical makeup looks have been featured in Vogue and W and on the runways of Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh, and Chanel, is the woman behind this artful take on contouring. She wrote in a series of Instagram posts on Friday, “The collection was inspired by the germination of the seed, the pathway of life’s growth and internal and external natural geometry. … Something that is so close to my heart.  … There were beautiful primitive prints offset against complex patterned inserts. … impactful yet delicate.” To achieve this look, Box dipped the flat end of a pencil into silver pigment and pressed it onto the models’ radiant skin, “accentuating and following the contours of the face.” The placement of blush on the cheeks and hint of gloss on the lips also help to draw attention to these perfect metallic dots. We won’t hold our breath waiting for the Kardashians to trade in their favorite bronzers and highlighters for silver paint, but this contouring technique does give us makeup inspo for Halloween.
