The truth: you don't really need to go under the knife to get a straighter nose or a chiselled jawline. Just master the Kim K 'Kontour' (which she posted about), with the help of foundation in a few shades darker and lighter than your skin tone. Just follow these simple steps below, and voilà!

#1. Once you moisturise your face, start with a primer (a clear-based one works best). Then take a foundation stick lighter than your skin tone and use it on areas a, b, c, d, and e as shown in picture 1.

#2. Next, use a foundation two to three tones darker than your skin tone (or even a bronzer) on a, b, c, d, and e as shown in picture 2.

#3. Blending is key to avoiding a contour malfunction. For best results, use a sponge to blend the product (if your foundation is too thick, spritz some water on it to dilute it). Triangle-shaped sponges work best for the nose and under-eye area.

#4. Enhance your features further by going over the darker areas with some bronzer, and you're all set to rock that defined jawline and to-die-for

1. Slough away dead cells to reveal softer, more luminous skin. Even if you already use a physical exfoliator (a formula boasting scrubbing beads to buff your complexion), adding a chemical exfoliator to your regimen will make a big difference in the look and feel of your skin. Once a week (or twice, depending on how sensitive your skin is), skip using your usual serum or moisturizer, and replace it with a leave-on chemical exfoliator, like Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care, which uses ingredients like glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin deeply, cleansing your pores of dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris that can lead to breakouts, and rose water to help calm the skin as the exfoliator does its work. Just remember to apply sunscreen immediately afterward, since it will make your skin sensitive to the sun's rays.
