Some rules were meant to be broken, or at least that’s what Kim Kardashian believes. The beauty mogul isn’t afraid to shatter old-school beauty rules, especially ones that we’ve been instructed to live by for generations. While making an appearance on Busy Philipps’ late-night show Busy Tonight, Kim confessed that she regularly goes to sleep without washing her face. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you: the reality star was dead-serious about it.
Sleeping with a full-face of makeup might be a beauty no-no, but the contour queen would rather “salvage” it than wipe it right off. “Have you ever slept with your makeup on,” Busy asked the beauty mogul. Kim said:
Busy’s reaction summed up exactly what everyone felt when Kim revealed that tidbit. “Wow,” the actress/host gasped. “That is a shock to me.” Same, girl. Same.
With the best makeup artists at her fingertips, like Mario Dedivanovic, Ariel Tejada, and Mary Phillips, it makes sense Kim wouldn’t want to ruin or take off her makeup.
It’s important to note that the reason we’ve been told to never sleep with our makeup is because it can cause serious issues. Breakouts, broken eyelashes, eye irritation, and eye infections are a few things that can happen, according to Bustle.
Kim isn’t a total rule-breaker, though, because she does ultimately wash her face.
Just last week, the KKW Beauty founder shared the $9 face cleanser she swears by. “At home, I use Cetaphil, the bar of soap or sometimes the more liquid [cleanser],” Kim told Refinery29.
While the beauty mogul might sleep with her makeup on, at least we know she does, in fact, take it off…eventually.
