Thanks To Foot Contouring, The Contour Trend Has Taken A Turn For The Worst


Okay, we're just going to give it to you straight: People are now contouring their feet, to which we ask, "WHY?!?!?!"

Last week, we learned people were contouring their butts. Yes, their butts. We laughed at first. And then we were slightly impressed, because you can't deny that lift it gives. And then all those emotions just led to pure confusion. Our love/hate relationship with contouring was alive and well.

But there we were, naive to it all, thinking the contour trend couldn't get any weirder. But we were so very wrong.

"Step up your contour game with this fancy footwork," writes on Instagram which has over 7500 likes and 11,000 comments.

And when would you show off these "slimmer" feet? On the gram? Because we know you're definitely not going to head to the beach like that, as the makeup would just wash right off!

Here's a before and after shot:

Sure, your veins may be covered up, but the toes and feet look the EXACT SAME.

Verdict? Unnecessary.
