How are you doing? Today’s post is on something that I’m beyond excited about: non-touring!
This latest make-up trend is literally the opposite of contouring, as the name suggests. It’s essentially a marriage between contouring and strobing that provides a glowy sculpt to the face, but without the super-defined lines and ‘Kardashian-amounts’ of product 😛
A more daylight-friendly look, it’s all about getting that lit-from-within-glow using three products only: primer, tinted moisturiser, and highlighter.
This is how celebrity makeup artist Renee Sanganoo describes this new trend:
Instead of a heavy contoured look, non-touring is very soft. It’s about dewy and glowy skin—you don’t want the skin to look super matte or dry. It’s kind of like Spanx for the skin. You know you’re wearing it, but no one’s supposed to see it. In the summer, people are outside more and they tend to wear lighter foundation. It just looks more natural.
A technique that gives you that mid-August glow, while surviving the dog days of summer, Sanganoo breaks down exactly how to get the non-toured look in three easy steps:
♥ Step 1: “Start with a primer that’s right for your skin type. If you’re oily, don’t use something that’s super matte. Look for one that’s dewy or has a luminous shimmer.”
♥ Step 2: “Since this is a more natural look, a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream should be used instead of using a heavy, full coverage foundation. If you have problematic skin or blemishes, use a concealer as a spot treatment.”
♥ Step 3: “The last step is highlighting, which is obviously a big trend right now. There are a lot of different highlighters, so it’s all about choosing what flatters your skin tone. 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.”
Most celebrities have already mastered the look, from Blake Lively, to Gigi Hadid, to Kendall Jenner…
It’s the perfect look for Spring & Summer! I’d wear that non-stop if I wasn’t so terrified of highlighters 😛
What about you, guys? Which one do you prefer: contouring or non-touring?
