Kim Kardashian is dealing with a lot of backlash due to the photo she shared to promote her new line of makeup, KKW Beauty. The photo shows Kim in what's clearly a lot of makeup, and Twitter users have accused her of darkening her face so much that it looks like blackface.  


Kim's photo is accompanied by details of her soon-to-be released products, specifically the Creme Contour & Highlight Kit.

She certainly has on a lot of makeup in the above photo -- all over her body. But could the look have happened because of a darkening filter over the photo as well?

If we review other photos of Kim, we see her ever-changing skin color. Below, she looks very pale. Though it could be the lighting.

And here she looks a bit pink.

Kim is an expert at makeup, and the things she and all her sisters do with contour is just beyond (with and without their makeup team of help). Still, there are a lot of people not pleased.



Most times, Kim stays quiet when dealing with things like this, so we'll have to wait to see if she decides to respond in any way. As a Kardashian, she must get used to people not being happy with everything she does. Knowing what we know about Kim, we'll guess that she didn't mean any harm or to cause any hurt to any one.
