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?

This article is ridiculous.

I’m not a fan of KK, but I don’t think it’s a big deal that she wants to wear makeup to the gym…or any female for that matter. If it makes someone feel better about themselves to wear some makeup to a place where they come in contact with just as many people as any other place they go during the day, then so be it. Why are people so quick to judge others for such superficial reasons?

I’m not gonna lie, it’s nice to look good and feel sexy even when working out- while I may wear makeup to the gym, it’s because my workouts followed a full day of work or personal training. Try me- I don’t feel like I’ve gotten a good workout if I’m not dripping in sweat! I certainly could not have my long hair down and accomplish anything either. Guess that’s what separates reality people and real people! Lol. Kim’s beautiful – fake lashes or not. Too funny

She looks pretty…..even at the gym.

Why do we comment on this “person of interest” she’s self louthing, pathetic, selfie, slefie, blah, blah, blah….every day KK has a “reason” to be written about & photoshopped about..why???? I don’t CARE ANYMORE!!! GO AWAY…but I’m stupid…she pays for this attention…I forgot!!! Ughhhhhhhh……

You all do realize this is for the show? When you see the shot of the younger sister, the camera crew is setting up the lighting and the sis has a mic pack on her back. I doubt they really are there to honestly work out.

Pretty sure that’s more makeup than I wore to my wedding, let alone the gym, LOL!

Famous for being famous. What a bore.

Make up or not, she is butt ugly

We need to stop the nasty commentary on women’s looks; really, there are a million and one things we could call Kim Kardashian out for, but please, for the sake of women everywhere, let us not make it her appearance. I expect better from People, even if it does involve a Kardashian.
