The Biggest Beauty Moments of the Last Decade, From Contouring to K-Beauty
Drag Culture and the Contoured Face
The Kardashians are pretty slick with appropriation, but they're not going to own the most defining beauty trend of the decade — the contoured face — which is an old-school makeup technique used regularly by drag artists that ultimately became more mainstream this decade with the popularity of RuPaul's Drag Race. The contoured face, the hyperfeminine body proportions, and the snatched wigs (move over, Kylie) are all thanks to the original kitty girl, RuPaul, and all the drag queens who came before her.
