Contouring Has Officially Gone Too Far

People are contouring their bums now. *Groans*.


First came leg contouring, then came boob contouring, now here’s…butt contouring? Um, WTF? In case you’ve gotten this far into your day without wondering what is wrong with society, this wacky beauty trend is sure to snap you back to reality., a makeup tutorial account followed by some 1.6 million ‘grammers, posted a video yesterday of a girl using Benefit’s Hula Bronzer and Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit to contour each butt-cheekinto an admittedly perkier version of its former self.


Check out the video:


We’d like to thank Sir-Mix-A-Lot, Meaghan Trainor, and Kate Upton for championing curves in the midst of stick figure-saturated media, but this trend seems a little less “Yay, all shapes and sizes” and more “If your cheeks don’t look like melons, you should fix that.”

But don’t call us haters—we have nothing but sympathy for our butt-contouring friend. Not only does she have to fear that the makeup will rub off on her pants, should she choose to wear any; her chair, should she choose to sit; or someone else, should she make human contact—but she’s also missing out on the most applause-worthy aspect of a high, tight butt. Knowing that you worked for it.
