Did Kim Kardashian update her face for the Fall ’19 season, or is it just makeup?


Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez stroll in St. Tropez

Before I get into it about Kim Kardashian’s Nu Face, can I just ask y’all something? What’s up with Kim Kardashian’s makeup line, KKW Beauty? We’re always hearing about Kylie Cosmetics and how Kylie has a billion-dollar empire. We’re always hearing about how Rihanna has made Fenty Beauty into a company which has scared the bejesus out of major makeup companies. But KKW Beauty is never discussed in those terms, right? I feel like… Kim’s beauty line is lacking some hype, maybe because people aren’t super-interested in it?

Which brings me to this – Kim has been blatantly copying Kylie’s whole promotional deal for Kylie Cosmetics. Instead of traditional ad buys (commercials and print ads), Kim uses herself for the KKW Beauty promo, and then she just posts those photos on her social media. Her latest line is the “Matte Smoke and Matte Cocoa Collection… inspired by iconic 90’s supermodel glam.” The photos are pretty. Pretty because Kim has updated her face – the Late Summer/Fall Model – and because she’s wearing so much makeup.

I’ve mentioned this on the Gossip with Celebitchy podcast before, but I’m kind of terrible at figuring out exactly what people DID to their faces which makes them look so different. So I’m not even going to try with Kim – to me, it looks like her nose has been updated and maybe she got some eye work, or is that just makeup and Botox and Facetune and filters? I don’t know. But this shocked me:

Oh, and she looks WAY different in this IG too:

    She’s looks spectacular. Best she ever looked. However it was done haha

  2. CharliePenn says:

    If I had to guess, I’d say she’s already had SO MUCH work done and lately she has started going crazy with nose contour, plus things are settling on her face, and the combination results in what we see above. Her face has been looking like this for a while and she is doing the most with that makeup lately.

    I also don’t get why kim is focusing on makeup when Kylie has that kind of merchandise in the bag. If I were kim I’d go hard on shapewear. She’s all about that crazy bod, I think young woman would buy shapewear from her.

    Either way she’s not hurting for money. And she may well have had even more work done, for all I know! What a life lol.

    • Leriel says:

      She announced a shapewear line. It caused controversy because she named it “Kimono”.

      • CharliePenn says:

        Oooh you know, I didn’t even realize Kimono was shapewear. I think I just rolled my eyes that she would name ANY merchandise in that ridiculous way and didn’t even read what the merchandise was. Thanks for filling me in!

        Ok so… she should just stop with merch altogether hahahha.

  3. Oh No says:

    I think she saw the HBO show Euphoria and just wanted to emulate the things she saw, seeing as she mentally acts like those 20 yr olds on the regular…

  4. aurora says:

    Probably both – plus photoshop/filters.

  5. Rina says:

    That’s Kim who no longer has any semblance to herself.

  6. horseandhound says:

    omg. this is weird. she looks a lot younger. I don’t know why she does this, if it is more than make up. she was stunning already with all her surgeries and there was no need for a new one.

  7. Pixie says:

    Seriously, WHOSE FACE IS THIS? She looks almost unrecognizable! She updates her face like people upgrade their phones, and it’s a quite concerning. She looks like someone paid a lot of money to look like Kim K and failed. There are women on instagram that look more like her original self, than she does at this stage and I just feel bad for all the kids growing up in their household who think it’s normal to order a new face every promo tour.

    • AnnaKist says:

      “She looks like someone paid a lot of money to look like Kim K and failed.“

      I think that’s it, in a nutshell. I wonder what she’ll tell her children when they’re older and start asking questions after seeing old photos of her, and realise she once looked so different? But then, there’s also their granny and aunties and friends they won’t recognise… “Who ARE these strange people, Ma? Why do they have your name? Why does this lady have Granny’s house?” Oh, gosh. Just thinking about it is doing my head in.

      • Pixie says:

        hahaha honestly! And plus, the kids are going to have their old faces, so I imagine there are going to be some side eyes and eye rolls, when it comes time to teach them to love themselves and feel comfortable in their bodies :/

    • Tiffany :) says:

      The title asks if she updated her face, and the truth is she never stops updating her face!

  8. Taryn says:

    I LOVED her face before she started getting work done, she was so unique. She still looks beautiful, but this was definitely a nip tuck situation and none of her beauty feels authentic anymore, she looks like one of those influencers on instagram that are trying to look like her.

    • Arizona says:

      Yeah, she has LA face. I think it’s funny when she posts pictures of her with all her friends, because they literally all have the same face. Everyone seems to want to overly plumped lips with an itty bitty nose, which doesn’t work for most faces.

      • Taryn says:

        I cant wait for the over filled lips and collapsing nose trend to die. It looks painful and only photographs well. In person something literally looks wrong with their faces.

      • Arizona says:

        Yeah, I saw a video of Kylie and Khloe talking this weekend and said to my husband how it might photograph well, but their faces look awful when they’re actually moving. It’s kind of sad.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        Taryn and Arizona – I noticed the looks-weird-when-talking thing, too. Kylie first. though she looks very plastic, in some of her photos she looks beautiful and striking. then I saw video and was like…SCARED. it’s like a rubber-faced puppet where the material was made to look flesh-like but still looks like a rubber mask.

        Tori Spelling has that too; I’ve really only seen pics of her, on here and other gossip sites, since 90210 ended. when I saw her in the re-boot, I was like “her nose DOES NOT MOVE!” her whole face is freaky.

  9. Ronaldinhio says:

    I don’t think she resembles Beyonce anymore than I do…sob
    She might wish she did or we might believe she wishes she did.
    I think Kim looks great. Even with her facial evolution she looks good and not overly weird. I think she has had her lips reworked. Same quality of work as Sharon Osbourne

    • Yvette says:

      Those lips look overly weird to me. I don’t understand the need to plump up lips. It’s the one area of the body that people can always tell isn’t natural.

  10. RoyalBlue says:

    When the others were riding the reality tv high and Kendall was getting into modeling Kylie wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. I remember her talking about liking cooking and she wanted to do some stuff around that. Then one day her lip kit became a hit and she has been riding the money wave ever since I think when Kim saw that she was jealous and started her version. I think even kourtney may be coming out with a line sometime soon. Seeing Kylie’s skyrocketing wallet with less effort and fewer staff than it takes to film an episode she went for that. Kim should push her wig collection.

    • Molly says:

      She SHOULD push her wig collection, but she’s always been so weird about her (clearly fake) hair. “Yes, this waist-long ice white blonde hair is definitely my own and dyed this way in one day.”

  11. Eliza says:

    Got to love a makeup ad that shows the power of the product… that product being photoshop.

  12. Caity says:

    In terms of kylie vs Kim makeup lines. As a self confessed makeup addict, kylies stuff always works on my very fair skin. The colour payoff is reliable.
    Yes kylie has stuff that isn’t my thing, but the colours I am into, work really well.
    I bought Kim’s kkw glam bible. None of the products stayed in regular rotation after the first week. They just don’t work the same way. I was interested in the Mrs west collection but missed the one release she had for it. Kylie always does at least 2 releases on a limited edition and isn’t afraid to bring it back if the demand is there.

    • Arizona says:

      Yeah, I have a LOT of Kylie’s lipkits (and one eyeshadow palette) because the quality and colors are there for me. I haven’t tried Kim’s products because they don’t really appeal to me. I have the latest lipkit collab that her and Kylie did, but I don’t wear those tons because the shades are very dark. I pretty much only use Kylie’s velvet and matte liquid lipsticks though, I haven’t tried a lot of the other stuff.

      Kylie also seems like the makeup/skin stuff is her business, while Kim is the business herself with a few product lines that she can make some money off of (shapewear, makeup, perfume, etc) but ultimately SHE is the product that makes money, not her offshoots.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Ha! One of my friends was given a KK “perfume”. She uses it as air “freshener” in her downstairs loo!

  13. M.A.F says:

    She looks more like Kylie now than Kylie looks like herself.

  14. Lightpurple says:

    What did she do to her mouth?

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      And her eyes? I’m thinking she had an upper lid surgery to give her a more wide-eyed look.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I thought the same. Her lips are huge again. And then there’s the Pamela Anderson circa 1980s lip liner. It was horrid then and it’s horrid now.

  15. Marianne says:

    Her nose looks different. More thinner. It could be a clever case of contouring/highlighting…but I dont know. If she did get surgery, its not like she’s gonna admit it. She’ll just say that her nose naturally thinned with age or some crap.

  16. barbwire says:

    looks like a Beyonce wannabe..oh no Becky with the straight ironed hair, you wouldn’t dare go there… CUE THE BEY HIVE!

  17. ME says:

    She does what 99% of “instagram models” do…A LOT Of photoshop and photo filters. Kylie does it too. None of these women look like that in real life. ANYONE can make themselves look like that with all the photo apps there are.

  18. Enn says:

    She looks like my Barbies in the 1980s, only with dark hair. They came with that eyeshadow painted on.

  19. Puffy says:

    I think it’s makeup and Facetune, but she would very much like you to believe she’s had some more work done and talk about it and have other gossip publications speculate about it because she uses controversy as publicity.

  20. PlaidSheets says:

    I need to see a candid/papped picture. I trust nothing these people put out.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ain’t that the truth. the most noticeable for me is Khloe. Her IG pics look SO different from the pap pics we see, or even so different from her own sisters’ IG accounts. like, they photoshop/facetune THEMSELVES, but not her.

  21. lobstah says:

    Could I BE wearing any more fillers?!

  22. Evie says:

    I can’t tell Kim and Kylie apart! And Khloe also has the same nose, lips and eyes as the two of them. Khloe is distinguishable by her height and larger frame and the bleached blonde hair.

    The amount of work the entire clan has had done is staggering. If their plastic surgeons did an IPO for a public company, I’d buy stock immediately, LOL!

    To visualize just HOW MUCH work the Kardashian clan has had, check out the first season of KUWTK on YouTube. They are unrecognizable! The exception is Kendall who still looks like herself and Kourtney, who hasn’t had as much work done.

    The other BIG difference in the early years is that Kim still dated caucasian men.

    I shudder to think what they’re going to look like in 20 years.

  23. Alexandria says:

    She’s kind of looking like Priyanka Chopra now rather than Beyonce.

  24. Harryg says:

    She’s so ugly. Her personality is so ugly, all I see is ugly.

  25. Murphy says:

    I just don’t associate Kim with makeup like I do with Kylie. Probably because Kim has had more than one line and none of them sparked major attention, they just all blur together now and I don’t care about any of it.

  26. Eleonor says:

    Sorry but BDD aside, I am European, and women here, in France, go very often sans fard) , an that to me is great drag queen makeup.

  27. Ann says:

    I saw some meme with one of these picture that says Kim Kardashian looks like someone who looks like Kim Kardashian. Made me laugh. It’s true.

    I have no idea about how much money she’s making on her make up but she’s trying. She sells body make up. Kylie is selling it now too but Kim did it first. I saw an episode of KUWTK yesterday where Kim was talking about how bad her psoriasis is. She was putting make up on her legs and then whipped some of it off with a towel and there was blood on it. I have psoriasis really bad on my hands and feet so I feel for her but if she’s stopped with all that body make up it probably wouldn’t be so bad.

  28. Peaches says:

    I just saw the photo at first and thought this was Victoria Beckham with lip injections.

  29. usedtobe says:

    I’m honestly embarrassed for her. She looks like a made up plastic doll and she thinks she looks so good. No amount of surgery and fillers can fix what is wrong in her head. She will never feel like she’s pretty enough no matter what. She is constantly looking for validation that she’s attractive, etc. Anyone can be a model with enough money for what it takes to get there but most of these people that are constantly updating their looks will never stop updating their looks because there will always be something (everything) they aren’t happy with.

  30. VintageS says:

    Can you imagine the time it takes just to take all that makeup off? I’m 57 and look okay for my age, and still my goal is to not slather it on. She’s downright frightening.

  31. MariaS says:

    She’s giving me Priyanka Chopra vibes in the IG photos.

  32. SM says:

    People, it is official – she finally was replaced by a mannequin. She and Kanye better keep on hustling because the kids are set for life in therapy as they analyse when and where their original mother went and which wax figure cared for them at certain points in their lives.

  33. Steph says:

    I used to think makeup didn’t change your face all that much but this past weekend I stumbled upon a James Charles video. It was insane how different he made his face look. He uses a lot of makeup to get the look he’s going for, which is also what Kim does too. I don’t doubt she has gotten stuff done but she does wear a lot of makeup, so I think its a combo of both.

  34. Kaye says:

    She has been out of the spotlight for a while…..face update but extraordinary doctors!

  35. ChillyWilly says:

    I’m cracking up at how over it her kids.look in those pics above. And is North carrying that fug Dior bag that could pay for a new car? JFC

  36. mara says:

    How do her babies even recognize her?

  37. Dorothy says:

    That’s some Nick Cage Face/Off action #SCARY she done phucKKed up her phace

  38. JanetFerber says:

    Her kids are straight up beautiful. North looks so over it.

  39. Mab's A'Mabbin says:

    The kid carrying a $45,000 purse (if one calls it that) is repulsive.

    • ME says:

      I remember Kim saying she wanted her kids to grow up as “normal” as possible. I think she threw that idea right out the window !

  40. Umm says:

    I don’t know who that is, but it ain’t Kim Kardashian. Yikes!

  41. sammiches says:

    The photo posted in that tweet that is quoted above is so obviously filtered/face tuned. Even your regular settings on your phone’s camera give you the wide eye option, blur option, etc, all of which were used in that selfie.

    Come on, people, it’s 2019. There is not one photograph released by any celebrity that ISN’T highly edited. So while, yes, of course KK has had an incredible amount of surgery, her ever-changing face from day to day is mostly because of the effects/filters she is putting on the photos.

  42. Hildog says:

    Wow! Best Kim has looked!

  43. Severine says:

    Kendall and Kourtney are the only ones who look remotely like people. Kim and Kylie and Khloe look plastic (makes sense, that’s why they call it “plastic surgery”).

  44. SURFCHICK says:

    I think she looks great. Better than ever. Her hair is normal and not that long, fake wig or whatever. And no offense, but she doesn’t look like or want to look like Beyoncé. That’s ridiculous, they look nothing alike.

  45. clairej says:

    I know it is awful and I am a horrible person, but North West annoys the crap out of me. So young and already so affected by the camera. These people are going to infect our lives for decades to come.
