Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian has taken contouring – you know, when you strategically paint your face with various splotches of brown/taupe/white/bronze to create faux angles, shadows and highlights – and made it into something of an art form. But, take note: When done incorrectly, the end result can be pretty jarring. (Exhibit A.) How to avoid these clownish fates? Head to The Rittenhouse Spa tonight at 5:30pm for a makeup tutorial with the spa’s leading artist, Irina Kravchenko.

Here’s the deal: You’ll learn step-by-step contouring techniques (hello, sharper cheekbones!), and you’ll get a peek at Kevyn Aucoin’s newest contouring palette. The session is open and completely free to the public, but if you RSPV in advance by email with your name and number, you’ll be entered to win the same contouring palette that you’ll use in the workshop (which will save you $59 if you happen to fall in love and want your own). Don’t win? Attendees still get 20 percent off all makeup and salon products, including Aucoin’s line. To sweeten the deal, the spa will be serving up complimentary refreshments and specialty drinks from the The Rittenhouse’s Library Bar. We’ll see you there.

The Details: Wednesday, January 20th, 5:30pm to 7pm. 210 West Rittenhouse Square, 215-790-2500.
