Contour 101 – “KUWTK” Edition … GOD Help Me!

So this is not the "full" post about contouring (there cannot be just one "full post" anyway!) but I'm STILL watching this stupid "KUWTK" because, yet again, I STILL DO NOT "GET IT" and I'm on the episode where Kim launches her "contour sticks" or whatever it is. And I have to say ... WRONG! … Continue reading Contour 101 – “KUWTK” Edition … GOD Help Me!
