Wait, Khloe Kardashian’s ‘bad nose job’ look was just makeup contouring?

Khloe Kardashian looks stunning in a leather dress as she exits an afterparty in Los Angeles!

In May, many of us realized that Khloe Kardashian had gotten a new nose job. It looks botched AF. Khloe has spent the past two months showing us angles of the nose job, which oddly resembles her mother’s too-small nose job, and so Khloe basically looks more like Kris Jenner now. I still maintain that Khloe has had a ton of face work, so much so that it’s difficult to even point out which procedures she had to make her look so different, but the latest nose job was super-obvious, wasn’t it? But… what about this Vogue video? Khloe did a video with Vogue where she shows off her makeup/beauty routine, and the routine includes lots of “contouring” for her nose and jawline. The video also includes Khloe’s nose from different angles, and in this video, her nose does NOT look as jacked as it has in the past two months?

Was this filmed pre-nose job, or shall I say, before her latest nose job? Or have I spent the last two months calling out Khloe’s botched nose job when really it was just “contouring”? I really don’t know. Khloe says to camera:

“So one of my favorite things is nose contour. But this does stress me out a little bit.” The reality star explained that it’s often hard for her to know whether the contour will look as good in a photograph as it does in person. “In person and how cameras reflect and light, everything looks different,” Kardashian said. “So sometimes I will contour my nose and in real life I think I look so good and then in some photos I look crazy!”

Besides her nose, the star also uses her M.A.C Cosmetics Contour Palette to contour her jawline, which she said makes her face look smaller.

“Especially after baby, when you have had a baby [and] you’re working on losing weight, and you’re still not losing that much weight. [In] your face you just feel so big. This I swear is like a magic eraser. I sit here and I’m just like, ‘Please go away! Come again another day. Please! Or just don’t come!’” Kardashian hilariously joked.

I… really don’t know what to think. I could have sworn that she had a botched nose job. Maybe this was filmed a while back, pre-nose job. I just don’t know. One thing I do know: watching Khloe try to apply all of her creams, lotions and makeup with those nails is kind of gross/funny.

    It was a result of contouring just like her diaper ass was a result of squats and Kylie’s breasts were because she was on her period.

    Jaysus-it’s not even a good lie. But these tricks are as addicted to that as they are to publicity, cultural appropriation and plastic surgery.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She definitely got a nose job, it’s just the contouring makes it look extra extreme. Her original was broad in the tip, and that’s gone in the “pre-makeup” part of the video.

    • Steph says:

      100% it’s a nose job AND bad contouring. Like drag queen levels of makeup is their natural look!!!

    • ByTheSea says:

      You said I was going to say.

  2. Sam says:

    Whatever she needs to make herself feel better I guess.

  3. Tushy says:

    Is it just me or does that long blonde wig look like some tattered party city business?

    Her nose is not an issue I have with her. I’m more upset about the crinkled, tattered, staticky pomeranian strapped to her head.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I still think she did something – contouring wouldn’t make THAT much of a difference, and she was bordering Kris Jenner/Michael Jackson nose in some of those.

    I can’t imagine looking in the mirror and having every single feature altered to the point where you are unrecognizable from even a few years ago.

  5. Erinn says:

    I keep saying that a lot of the celebs who’s nose/face changes is a LOT to do with makeup. I don’t think most people realize just how much they can create fake shadows and light on the face with makeup. Makeup has come a LONG way.

    I think she might have had a minor nose job, but she was probably contouring her nose like she did BEFORE the work, and it made it look wonky.

    • elimaeby says:

      I agree. I have a friend who has seen Kim in person and swears up and down she has the same nose as 2007, but it’s just caked in an obscene amount of makeup. Like, clown-level. Her body, on the other hand, is apparently so ludicrous there is no way it’s natural.

      • Erinn says:

        And that’s the thing – a lot of these makeup techniques are great for photos. But nobody really looks great like that in real life.

        Kim’s body just seems like it would be painful. I’m short like she is, I can’t imagine having her proportions though.

      • olive says:

        unless she’s applying some kind of invisibility makeup to the end of her nose, it is clearly much shorter than it was in 2007.

      • Arizona says:

        I’m as short as Kim too, and if I had her butt and boobs I would look absolutely hysterical.

        I think it’s sort of like how Kylie can look great in photos, but when you see her face moving and talking in video, the work she’s done on her face just looks weird.

    • Krakken says:

      Why all the lies? And the fervent need to defend those lies? Ugh. This family. Her nose is missing the meat that used to be at the tip.

      Perhaps the lies are a strategy to “grow back” some of the nose that her surgeon cut away in her second or third botched rhinoplasty.

      These ppl treat their fans like idiots.

  6. Lightpurple says:

    If she gets stressed out putting makeup on her nose how does she cope with reality?

  7. MariEmme says:

    I don’t see how anyone can function with nails that length. No insult intended, and if you can more power to you. Me? I’d poke an eye out.

  8. C says:

    The baby voice is so annoying (hers, not her daughter’s 😉)

  9. lily says:

    True is so beautiful!!

    • Some chick says:

      She is. What an adorable kid!

      Something else Nice: that middle pic with the bob looks really good. Perhaps the best pic of her that I’ve ever seen.

      (ohgodohgodohgod I’ve commented on a Kartrashian post! Send help!)

  10. Mel says:

    I watched it out of morbid curiosity and boredom the other day.
    That sh.t takes forever!!!
    I’ll give her that, her reno timeframe is shorter than anything the Property Brothers could achieve!
    That was EXHAUSTING!!!
    However, her little girl is ADORABLE.
    That’s all I chose to retain.

  11. Anne says:

    The two main thoughts I had watching the first couple minutes: 1) Her daughter is freaking adorable. 2) She must waste a lot of product getting it stuck under those talons.

  12. alix baradat says:

    Never noticed before as I never watch videos of her (aka moving, only pictures), but what really struck me on this video here is how different the space between her upper lip and her nose is. Looks like Britney Spears, Kim, pretty much everyone in Hollywood right now. Doesn’t look great

  13. stacey says:

    She should really go back to her natural hair and natural hair color and natural nails. Her look is so fake and overdone like an instagram influencer. The blonde is so awful for her complexion not to mention the texture looks like straw..

    Her long nails look very juvenile in my opinion.

    • Dark and Stormy says:

      If she lost all the fakery and went natural then she would be “the least interesting to look at” in her family and I’m sure that’s become a fate worse than death.

  14. so says:

    My thoughts : she had a 1st nose job and then a ‘correction’ (second surgery or just fillers) to make it a little less short. But her nose definitely changed compared to 6 months ago, it’s more narrow and the bump is gone.

  15. ds says:

    I’m such an amateur. My routine is a scrub, cream, bb cream, blush, lipstick. I’d look like a clown if I tried doing all of this.

  16. AB says:

    Her nose job is extreme, and it’s more obvious with her aggressive contour. Which is fine, but be honest about it. They have lots of young fans and need to own the message that they are sending to their young daughters and to young girls. She doesn’t even look like the same person, her surgeon did not even seek to retain her natural look at all. So what does that say?

  17. BANANIE says:

    I had assumed she had a team of makeup artists doing it for her legit every day, and figured she would look as ungainly doing it at Kylie did with her skin products.

  18. jennifer says:

    these poor kids, they don’t stand a chance being brought up in this vapid family

    • ME says:

      Those poor kids are going to have nightmares about those long f*cking claws their moms all wear. How the f*ck do you do anything with those nails and aren’t you afraid of scratching your baby with those???????????

      The Vogue video is using a filter to soften Khloe’s features (they also use video filters on KUWTK ). You can easily google make-up free pap pics of Khloe and can see she looks different than in this video.

  19. AnneC says:

    The first time I saw that bottom pic of her (the one with the crazy light long crimped blond hair) I thought I was looking at a pic of Lindsay Lohan. Anyone else see it?

  20. Paisley says:

    I don’t believe her. I looked at old pics of her…no way.

  21. styla says:

    I think she’s gorgeous. Shoot me.

  22. Sharonk says:

    Too much time, too much money. Do something productive w your life instead on focusing solely on appearance.
    This family may be rich but they’re dick, sick sick!!

  23. Annie says:

    Pretty sure she fixed it. It really was that jacked. But nose jobs can be fixed rather quickly. Everyone was talking about how bad it looked. She did something about it. I’m glad. I’m also done with Khloe picking on her face when a man betrays her. It’s like she feels ugly every time she gets cheated on. It hurts to see, not gonna lie. My mom has a friend like that.

  24. MrsPanda says:

    Khloe looks much prettier and more natural in this clip than in KUWK and other clips I’ve seen of her, she looks really great. I do think she had another nose job but maybe got it slightly corrected? it’s still a bit short but Kim corrected her (too short) nose, when it used to be so far from her mouth. Khloe can save her nose if she stops now. I notice Kylie has now got cheek implants and looks different (yet-again) again.

    • stacey says:

      Yeah I think Kylie’s face is look very cat-lady ish in her recent instagram trip to Turks & Caicos.

      Her cheek bones and lips are gross. I can’ t imagine what she is going to look like by the time she is 30, bet she will look like 70 year old Ivana Trump at this rate.

  25. Eeeeeeetrain says:

    I actually found her to be quite charming and beautiful in this video.

    • stacey says:

      I think she seems sweet. Getting screwed over for a long time in a series of toxic relationships would make anyone go crazy and act nutty.

      Hopefully she takes a break from men and focuses on herself. She needs to heal her soul.

    • brooksie says:

      I was just about to say the same thing! This is the most “normal” she’s ever come across, to me at least.

  26. blinkers says:

    Nah it’s the same botched nose job, just without the botch-enhancing contouring.

  27. Endless Circles says:

    I thought this was Lil Kim at first

  28. suharik26 says:

    makeup for new moms LOL!! My amazing mom friends don’t wear makeup. Mascara is an achievement. I find it quite funny that the baby disappeared somewhere and she was able to do all this elaborate makeup with so many brushes….hahahahah never in a million does this happen in real life.

  29. Seri says:

    How that much makeup on looks in person? Does it “sail” down into the cleavage at some point during the day? Just wondering…

    The only thing I’m here for are those diamond rings, wow !
