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?

It’s obvious they were setting up for a shoot for her show so they probably faked the whole thing. Fake. Like everything about that family.

Lila on

Heavy makeup and implants shoved to her chin. Yes, this is a typical look in a gym (Not!)..

When I go to the gym, I sweat like a horse, am constantly wiping my face and my hair is wet root to tip. So either she does not plan on working hard enough to break a sweat–so then what is the point in being at the gym-or it is for show. Pick one and I don’t think the answer is much of a mystery.

I just threw up

Pnut on

That is so so so so so so so so so so so so nasty. I don’t even want to imagine what her skin must look like under all that gunk.
