Makeup maven Bobby Brown is tired of some celebrities abusing clown makeup contouring -- and she says it has to stop. Some artists wear so much contouring makeup that it looks like they underwent extensive plastic surgery.
"When I see contouring on people’s faces, it looks like dirt,” Brown tells The NY Post. “As a beauty expert, I believe in individual beauty, and it’s just not my aesthetic. We don’t need to be contouring like the Kardashians.”
She added: “The contouring trend is so wrong because it tells women there’s something wrong with their face. There’s beauty in a full face, so I don’t like to paint in a cheekbone that doesn’t exist.”
Brown targeted the Kardashians as some of the worst offenders of the contouring craze.
Sorry, Kylie, but “lip-plumping and fillers never work,” Brown says. “We’re not all born with Angelina Jolie lips .?.?. and whoever said small lips aren’t beautiful?” If you can’t rock a bold lip, Brown suggests lining lips with a soft purplish pencil — like the Bobbi Brown lip liner in “Bobbi,” a shade she designed for herself — for a faint enhancement.

Brown says, as always, less is more. Reality stars such as Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton should embrace their African noses rather than contouring to achieve Anglo features.
"Make sure your brow fits your face, and if you’ve overplucked, don’t attempt to draw in the power brow of your dreams," said Brown. "I wish I had the strong brow I was given when I was a teenager... but I can’t paint it in,” she added.
