Just like Regina George, "My pores are huge." And I have spent the last however many years with blurring setting powders, texture refining primers and beauty products alike trying to minimise the look of them. But today, I'm embracing them and that's all thanks to Kim Kardashian and her latest selfie; who'd have thought, ey?
The multi-hyphenate beauty mogul took to her Instagram page just short of 24 hours ago, sharing a five-part carousel post. In the pics, Kim is promoting her very own skincare brand, SKKN by Kim and is donning an au naturel makeup-free look. As such, we're given an up-close peek at her natural skin texture – pores 'n' all – and we couldn't applaud her more if we tried.
Take a look at her bare-faced look in the IG post below:
Clearly, Kim's complexion is flawless; there's not a blemish, dark circle or red mark in sight (SKKN products come through). But what she's not afraid to show off and normalise are her pores. And as someone who has tried to hide hers for years, I couldn't be more appreciative.
Say it with me now: Pores are NORMAL!
Now, having said that, we're not turning a blind eye to the possibility of these images being retouched. I mean, celebrities (including the Kardashian-Jenner clan) have often been called out for 'photoshopping errors', not to mention tweakments, cosmetic surgeries and having access to the very best beauty products one can get their hands on.
But right here, right now, flaunting what we're taking to be her natural texture is a step in the right direction in normalising the realness of human skin. So, snaps for Keeks, please!
