He may have become notorious for his curiously orange skin — with some publications coming up with theories, others launching “investigations,” and a great many social media users creating memes — but at Monday’s presidential debate, Donald Trump finally caught some positive reactions to his complexion. Particularly, for his makeup contouring.

“Is it just me or is Trump’s contour on point?” asked professional makeup artist Paulina Perez on Facebook, adding in the comments, “This makeup artist needs to be his permanent artist and needs a raise!” Perez has more than 30,000 followers on her official Facebook and focuses primarily on beautifying brides.

Twitter users were equally abuzz at the impressive Kardashian-esque cosmetics application.

The accolades were overwhelming (perhaps Trump learned a thing or two from all those years at the helm of beauty pageants?). They truly became a phenomenon — and a thread of lightheartedness — during the intense debate.

In case you were wondering, men noticed too.

Some users, fixated on Trump’s face, went beyond the contour and coveted everything from his eyeshadow to possible lipstick.

But, of course, the critics came out of the woodwork too.

Then the contour factor became a debate of its own, of course. Leave it to the never-ending fount of opinions that is Twitter.
