The Surprising Reason Kim Kardashian Is Wearing Less Makeup These Days

Some women say that motherhood changes you, and alters fundamental aspects of who you are and what you believe. Based on some recent quotes, it seems Kim Kardashian West is now one of those women.

Now, when you think of the “fundamental aspects” of who Kim Kardashian is, I bet somewhere in the top five is “makeup.” After all, she’s the kween of kountouring, and her Instagram account is full of pictures like this:

But now that she’s a mother, Kim Kardashian claims she is wearing a lot less makeup. Is it because she’s too busy? Is it because she thinks this image might scare little North West? Nope: the real answer is way cuter:

“Ever since I had the baby, there was at least four months I went without makeup or hair products. I loved it. You can kiss your baby and you can snuggle. I am less on the makeup since I had a baby for sure because it makes it hard to kiss.”

It’s because of kisses and snuggles. Awwwwww.

In the same profile on WWD, Kim also shares her hair routine, if you’re interested.

“I start out the first day with a clean blowout. The second day, I put in dry shampoo, which adds texture. Then, the third day, I sleek it and I straighten it, and then, the fourth day, I put our oil in it, and I make it a really sleek look. I might do a ponytail or a sleek bun. That’s my hair plan, and then I start over.”

Fortunately it seems this elaborate routine still seems to leave plenty of time for cuddles, so no need to worry!
