Kim Kardashian has changed a lot for her husband Kanye West — giving up smiling and wearing any color, for example — but the reality queen revealed during and event for the Vogue Festival in London this past weekend, that she is abandoning a trend that she helped bring to the mainstream in order to please her man.
Yup, we're talking about contouring. Kim, who credits the makeup technique for changing the appearance of her entire facial structure, is going au natural from now on. Well, almost.
"I think right now it's more about non-touring, like real skin with less make-up on it," she told the audience. "I'm trying to wear less...and my husband loves me without make-up. Now when I travel I just bring a small make-up case, and I'm content with that."
Kim mentioned some of her favorite non-touring techniques are used by the likes of supermodel Gigi Hadid and actress Blake Lively. Also, by all of the women in the world who don't have professional makeup artists and 2-3 hours a day to beat their faces.
Kim continued by going into greater detail of how she maintains a more natural look. "I'm really into strobing now, so just highlighting the skin without using bronzer. I love contouring and I don't think I'd stop contouring my nose - I know people think I've had a nose job but it really is just make-up!"
Kim illustrated her change of heart by telling the audience that while she gave birth to her daughter North in full glam, labor with her five-month-old son Saint was makeup-free.
It's sacrifices like these that have kept these two happily married for two years. Kimye celebrated their second wedding anniversary on Tuesday, and Kim took to Instagram to share some adorable pics for the occasion:
While Kanye has not posted anything about the anniversary his social media pages, we're sure that his famous gift-giving is in full effect.
