Maria Fowler went all Kim Kardashian on us this week when she Instagrammed a brilliant step-by-step contouring picture while having her make-up professionally applied.

The former TOWIE star clearly takes a lot of make-up inspiration from Kim after channelling her red lips in December... and now this little gem!

Maria was up in Manchester on Thursday (5 February) and was clearly at a bit of a loss as to who she could visit for some expert hair and make-up pampering...

"Looking for makeup artist/ hair in Manchester tomorrow... Have no clue. Help xx," Maria tweeted on Wednesday.

A genius idea for finding great people when you're not in your home town, don'tcha think?

And after quite a few tips from her followers, Maria ended up in the fabulous hands of Ed's Hair & Beauty Salon for a gorgeous, braided updo, while her slap was taken care of by top make-up artist Vanessa Yates from the Cheshire Makeup Studio in Romiley, Stockport.

Maria's a dab hand when it comes to doing her own make-up and often wows us with her super-glam selfies, but even the most talented of make-up queens need a break every now and again, plus it's always nice to put your face in the fate of someone else!

And make-up artist, Vanessa did a great job of creating this contoured look (below) along with nude lips, strong brows and dark, smoky eyes.

By using a highlighter along the centre of Maria's nose, forehead and across the top of her cheekbones, she's given her a strong, chiselled look that Maria obviously loved as much as we did...

"Best makeup artist ever," she Instagrammed after her makeover was complete!

Since 'that' picture of Kim Kardashian back in September 2012, in which Kim revealed her highlighting and shadowing make-up secrets, we've seen quite a few celebrities showing off their contouring selfies, including Kelly Brook who Instagrammed a couple of 'during' and 'after' makeover snaps a couple of months ago.

So, it just goes to show, even the most beautiful people don't wake up looking inch-perfect. They need a little help too – yesss!
