Kim Kardashian's Full Face of Makeup at the Gym Is Making Our Pores Hurt

By now, we’re all aware that Kim Kardashian wears more makeup on a Tuesday than the average woman wears to her wedding, and we can understand that. After all, if you were photographed constantly (both by paparazzi and by your own cell phone; the woman loves a selfie), you’d want to put your best face forward too — and for Kardashian, that’s a full face of paint.

But knowing that, we still managed to be floored by the sheer amount of makeup Kardashian was seen wearing outside a SoulCycle class Tuesday night. Now, we typically end up drenched in sweat at the end of a spin class, leaving any residual mascara from the night before caked under our eyes. But KK must have the mother of all waterproof makeup, because not a speck of glitter or fleck of eyeliner was out of place.

From our estimation, the star is wearing foundation, concealer, bronzer, contouring bronzer (on face and cleavage), blush, several shades of shimmering eyeshadow, highlighter, brow powder, what looks to be at least two types of eyeliner, fake lashes, several coats of mascara … oh yeah, and a tinted lip balm.

Lest you think she didn’t actually hit a bike in that, Khloé Kardashian was on hand to document the whole thing on her new Vine account.

Should we start having sympathy breakouts just from thinking about her sweating under all that makeup? Says celebrity dermatologist Dr. David Colbert, “Sometimes heavy makeup can block your pores and cause minor plugging and then a possible breakout. Most lighter makeups are fine even during exercise.” And if you can’t help a sweat session with your full face on? “When you get home, wash your face with a balancing cleanser, then wipe your face with a toner to clean pores of debris. Finally, add a glycolic acid serum [he likes his own Stiumlate serum] to further exfoliate and clean the skin. This minimizes the chance of acne.”

The bottom line? If she gets home and immediately cleanses, “I’m sure Kim will be fine!” Colbert says. We appreciate the reassurance, but we still think we’re going to be hitting the gym with a clean face ourselves. How about you?

people are allowed to do as they please! who is she hurting with make up on her face? i do love people and other celeb blogs but seriously, i want to read REAL gossip, and maybe fashion and make up trends…. i do not think an article should be based on if she wore make up to the gym! so stupid…

Has anybody else noticed the suttle changes in her face since she re-emergered post kid ? It appears she has had a little touch-up work done. It wouldn’t surprise me, I think mommager has a plastic man on retainer and probably lent him out to Kimmy.

When I am done working out, I actually look like I worked out. And I would never wear make up to do so.

So in that video, is that her sis? And if it is, what is on her back, under her top?

WOW–that article is cruel! People’s credibility has just plummeted!

So is there a video of her actually working out with the makeup on? How do they know she didn’t put the makeup on AFTER the workout, considering she is always being photographed and maybe just wanted to be ready?? This article is asinine.

I would look like a melting oil painting if I wore makeup to the gym! That can’t be healthy for her skin.


OMG, she is wasting her time going to the GYN,. Look at her fat bottom. Kloe looks soooo much thiner that the the MASK aka KK

I go to the gym after a full day of work, and I do not go home and wash my face/remove my makeup. It is not a crime to go to the gym looking like this!!!
