A few men are championing the art of penis contouring, including internet-famous makeup artist Jeffree Star, who admitted in a video with Shane Dawson he enjoys contouring his peen.
‘I contour my shaft a lot,’ said Jeffree, explaining that he contours his penis while it’s erect, so that when it goes flaccid it still looks big.
Contouring the penis isn’t a new thing. Tutorials have been popping up online over the last few years, and it’s popular among men who have no issue with wearing makeup, and take a lot of pride in the appearance of their dick.
But Jeffree’s revelation could make the practice more mainstream. Emphasis on could.
Jeffree didn’t go into the specifics of his penis contour, but it’s likely using some kind of highlighter to make parts appear bigger, rather than slimming things down with a darker shade.
If you do fancy trying it out yourself, rejoice. For we chatted to makeup artist Hannah Sorcha to guide us through the basics.
‘When it comes to contouring, it’s all about creating shape and definition,’ Hannah told metro.co.uk.
‘Penises come in all shapes and sizes, and some (I guess) could do with a helping hand.
‘I’d start by using getting a contour palette and using a darker (probably more ashy tone) along the side of the shaft to create a bit of definition and the illusion of more length.
‘From here we can go to just below the bellend, if we create a shadow under there it can, once again, create the illusion of a bigger bellend.
‘When it comes to highlighting, we would need to work out where the light would naturally fall on the shaft – which would be the line down the middle.
‘This opens up the space making it look bigger!’
