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?

Well this article sounds a bit snarky! LOL I agree she’s ridiculous though. Must have a lot to hide under there.

How is this a story?

People magazine, you’ve sunk to a whole new low. You might as well be US Weekly…

I didn’t read this article. I don’t read any article that has that name on the top of it. Why oh why is this person ever in the news? Is this news? This is insulting to everyone. And anyone that follows this idiot should be ashamed of themselves.

She’s an idiot and her lips keep getting bigger and bigger.

This is the way we all workout when we are in between lipo sessions. You know sit on a bike at the gym and pedal casually. Just to save face work your arms with it to acknowledge those long hours of recovery, oops I mean workout you just put in to get toned.

I don’t care about negative comments regarding Kim Kardashian as I quickly skim through them. But it gets boring after a while, the same complaints about her over and over. The EYE ROLL comments; she’s faking everything, yeah yeah, the comments are too repetitive, etc. Yawn. I just keep reading the same things over and over. I doubt anyone is reading them anymore.

Fake photo shoot opportunity…

Yes, and please be sure your boobs hang out. Fake boobs, fake butt and needs a ton of make-up – yup she’s a natural.
