Growing an entire human in your body is stressful enough as it is. But, when your famous face is your calling card, keeping your signature contouring under control is crucial to getting through the next nine months. Just ask Kim Kardashian.

Recently, the second-time mama-to-be shared how her beauty routine has shifted to accommodate her condition. "Can't wait to show u this contouring make up tutorial for my changing pregnant face!" she wrote on her Instagram over the weekend — in part to address rumors about why she's a little puffier than usual.

"No I don't do fillers or botox when pregnant like some tabloids are reporting, you would have to be really sick to endanger your child like that!" Kardashian explained. "Anyone who has been pregnant or gained weight knows your face totally changes! My nose gets bigger, cheeks fuller & my lips swell up. The challenge is trying to adjust the make up [sic] to make me feel normal."

While we're not totally certain that perfectly highlighted cheekbones will offset the fact that Mrs. West has about 50% more blood in her body than usual, all we have to say here is: You go, girl. Being pregnant pretty much guarantees you're going to feel icky and uncomfortable (and, if you're Kim Kardashian, that you're going to have some serious morning sickness). If sculpting makeup makes you feel more like yourself, more power to you!
