Tired of the over contoured Kim Kardashian look? If you answered yes, than “non-touring” is the look for you!
The soft look of “non-touring” is the go-to look for celebs like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. It’s super easy. Your skin will glow. And it’s the perfect lightweight technique to rock during the sizzling summer of 2016.
So what’s the difference between “contouring” and “non-touring”?
Contouring is a sculpting technique that uses highlights and shadowing to add pop to your cheeks and slim your nose.
It’s time consuming, basically makes you look older and well—it’s just played out!
Celebrity make-up artist Renee Sanganoo told ABC News why superstars like Khloe Kardashian are stoked about the “non-contouring” trend:
“Contouring was getting a little crazy and out of hand. It was making people look harsh and older,” she said. “So moving forward, non-touring is a very natural way to get glowing skin. It’s all about the skin. It’s a more youthful look and everyone wants to look younger.”
The best part about it?
You can master the “non-touring” makeup technique in just 3 easy steps:
1. Apply a primer that matches well with your skin tone. Girls with oily skin should avoid primers that are super matte. Look for a primer with a luminous shine like Guerlain Météorites Base.
2. Next, grab your go-to BB Cream or tinted moisturizer. Hellogiggles.com recommends using Garnier’s BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector. For blemishes you can use a concealer for spot treatment.
If your skin is lighter, look for one with frosty pink undertones so it doesn’t make your skin look orange. If your skin is warm or darker, pick a golden bronze highlight. Brush on the highlight on the planes of the face where light would hit naturally—above the cheekbones, under the brow bone, down the bridge of the nose, and on the cupid’s bow.”
