Kanye West is touching up Julia Fox’s budget-Black Swan makeup himself

It’s Julia Fox Month over here, so enjoy. Who knew last month that an Italian-born New Yorker named Julia Fox would become the It Girl of gossip in 2022? Life is so weird. Anyway, we’re still in the afterglow of Julia and Kanye West’s successful trip to Paris. They did some fashion events, he introduced her to tons of fashion people, she wore custom Schiaparelli and terrible makeup. I see a lot of comments calling Julia average-looking and you guys are smoking crack! She’s really beautiful, but ever since Kanye started styling her, she’s looked like something the cat dragged in. Speaking of, while Kanye hired a big glam squad to service Julia in Paris (a makeup artist at Pat McGrath even worked on her), Ye was also touching up her makeup himself:

According to Julia Fox, Kanye West is a makeup mastermind. Because apparently the 44-year-old rapper is the brains behind her wild black eye makeup at Paris Fashion Week.

Since making her red carpet debut with West at the Kenzo fashion show on Sunday, January 23, the 31-year-old actress has been sporting some fairly controversial shadow that resembles that of Natalie Portman in The Black Swan. And while social media has been filled with memes stating that the glam is a “nightmare” and looks straight out of a scene from Dark Night Rises, she’s made it clear that she’s all about the vibe West created.

“Wanna know who my fave makeup artist is?” the Uncut Gems star captioned a Monday, January 24, Instagram Story that showed West taking his finger to smudge out her eye makeup. Because yes, the Donda rapper is apparently adding makeup guru to his lengthy resume.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter went into a tizzy thanks to this tidbit of information. “You think Kanye just watched Black Swan for the first time or what’s going on with Julia Fox’s eye makeup,” a user questioned, while another joked, “I bet Kanye wanted Kim [Kardashian] to do those blacked out eye makeup looks that Julia Fox is wearing but Mario [Dedivanovic] refused.”

This whole thing is giving me flashbacks to when Kim and Kanye first got together too. Pre-Kanye, Kim had her own bouncy, colorful, C-lister style, full of clingy dresses and mass-market pieces. She also had more natural makeup back then. When Kanye began styling her, he tried to make her more monochromatic (all black, all white or all beige) and her makeup got a lot more extreme too. What is his thing about getting with naturally pretty women and making them look like raggedy robots?

Meanwhile, Julia has been workshopping a portmanteau for her new relationship. On her IG Stories, she posted some photos with the comment “Juliye.” Oh, honey. You think your name would come first in a potential portmanteau? No, baby girl. It will be Kanlie or nothing.

    I was surprised at how pretty she looked when I saw pre-Kanye photos of her! He definitely likes to uglify, and probably thinks it’s some visionary artistic statement. Actually it looks like a bad Halloween costume. I think #Kanjul is the right order in his mind, of patriarch and then muse.

    Oh girl please…. This is moving into extreme cringe

  3. eto says:

    I will continue calling her average-looking because gorgeous gorgeous girls do not let Kanye West do their makeup.

  4. Steph says:

    Where is the self respect? How are you so publicly claiming a man who is crying about his ex every chance he gets?

    And she wore that eye makeup everyday? That seems so budget (which isn’t a problem normally but you know budget wasn’t their aim. )

    My suspicions are confirmed!
    Of course he’s doing it. It’s SO amateur. He was probably mad about North wearing makeup because she has a better hand at application than he does.

  6. Mary Tosti says:

    LOL of course he did.

  7. jferber says:

    Yes, but she’s just taking it all in stride, rising above her Svengali with no mental/emotional ties to him whatsoever, taking this fantasy trip as a gift from the Hollywood gods. I don’t believe she feels controlled by him (yet) because he’s no more than her fairy godfather in all this. I don’t think she’ll have any trouble disengaging from him when she needs to– which goes for him, too. Enjoy it while it lasts, make bank and put it in the bank.

    My Lord Kanye can Crayola the beauty right out of someone.

  9. LuLuLu says:

    I can think of maybe a handful of women on the planet who could have successfully pulled this makeup look off. Julia Fox is not one of them.

  10. Maida says:

    She is a beautiful woman but that raccoon look is ugly as sin. I feel as if Kanye surrounds himself only with people who will keep telling the emperor how great everything he does is.

  11. whatWHAT? says:

    I don’t care who did it, it’s terrible.

    and I guess I’m a crack-smoker too, because I don’t think she’s anything special. def pretty, but basic, as others have said.

    she’s like a not-quite-as-good-looking Brooke Shields.

  12. tealily says:

    Does she think we knew her name before this?

  13. MangoAngelesque says:

    Yelia is going to squeeze every. single. nanosecond. of her fifteen minutes of associated fame.

    His aesthetic is Creepy Bland Cult of Kanye. If any colour is included, it’s only to be allowed in the ugliest fabric imaginable.

    A strong sense of Elizabeth Holmes with a sharpie.

    That one pic reminds me of when I used to put those Bugle cone chips on my fingers to simulate nails when I was a kid, lol
