From Kim Kardashian West to the characters of Odd Mom Out and The Real Housewives of Orange County's Shannon Beador, beauty buffs from coast to coast have been testing out a bloody beauty craze. Microneedling, which is also known as a Platelet Rich Plasma Facial — or a Vampire Facial, if you prefer your spa treatments fantastical — is said to stimulate collagen production (watch the video above to see Shannon talk about her experience).

Kelly captioned the pic with a hilarious, straight-to-the-chase caption: "I look like a bloody mess!"

This just proves it: Kelly puts blood, sweat, and tears — or, at least blood — into looking that good.
