I can't say I'd be game, but I know millions of people would—and so, it does make sense that the queen of contour and false lashes is starting her own beauty website this summer, to include both hair and makeup video tutorials. And she's not the only one in the family. According to a Tweet, her sisters are launching their own beauty websites, too. God help us, the contour trend might be here to stay. {MTV}
