Kim Kardashian has been slammed by Twitter users after being accused of 'blackface' in some new promotional photos.

Taking to her Instagram account this week, the mother-of-two shared a photo of herself to promote her Creme Contour & Highlight Kit.

However, it wasn't long before users began pointing out that Kim looked much darker in the photo than usual.

Some users even began accusing the star of 'blackface' and cultural appropriation.

Others jumped to the star's defence.

Some users pointed out her Armenian heritage, while others simply put her deepened colour down to a spray tan.

Kim is yet to respond to the comments.

Meanwhile, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star has been busy celebrating the 4th birthday of her daughter, North West.

The star was joined by husband Kanye for a meal in celebration of their daughter's big day.
