The Contour Trend Continues, This Time With Your Butt


Well, here we are, beauty world. Butt contouring is officially a thing, But how does this even work?


First came leg contouring, then came boob contouring, now here’s…butt contouring? Um, WTF? In case you’ve gotten this far into your day without wondering what is wrong with society, this wacky beauty trend is sure to snap you back to reality.

To get the bootylicious look (because who really needs butt implants?), LiveGlam.couses the Benefit Hoola bronzer and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit for that extra highlight.


Sure, her butt looks great, but wouldn’t her makeup just get all over the place if she innocently sat down? Think about that for a second.

Remember when we all agreed that contouring would be something we would leave behind in 2015? Yeah, clearly some people didn’t get the memo because it seems as if contouring is alive and well here in 2016.

We’d like to thank Sir-Mix-A-Lot, Meaghan Trainor, and Kate Upton for championing curves in the midst of stick figure-saturated media, but this trend seems a little less “Yay, all shapes and sizes” and more “If your cheeks don’t look like melons, you should fix that.”

But don’t call us haters—we have nothing but sympathy for our butt-contouring friend. Not only does she have to fear that the makeup will rub off on her pants, should she choose to wear any; her chair, should she choose to sit; or someone else, should she make human contact—but she’s also missing out on the most applause-worthy aspect of a high, tight butt. Knowing that you worked for it.
