On her personal website, the 36-year-old revealed she went a bit overboard with the “baking” technique back in the day.
“Mario and I used to do really heavy baking. Back in 2009 or 2010, having a super light under-eye was the thing to do and I absolutely loved it at the time. But looking back, sometimes I looked a little crazy - especially with the camera flashes.”
Baking has been used in the drag community for a long time before picking up in popularity amongst beauty vloggers. It basically involves applying a thick coat of setting or highlighting power to areas you want to accentuate, and allowing it to “bake” onto the skin for five to ten minutes.
Kim – who now runs her own, insanely popular beauty line – says her look has become more natural of late, but that it wasn’t always the case.
“Throughout the years, I've tried a lot of beauty trends,” Kim wrote. “It's fun to look back at the old glam I used to do - a lot of contour, really baked under eye and long lashes. Now, I tend to stick to a monochromatic nude look. I like to keep things simple but I still love to change it up every now and then, so I can try new products.”
