Forget About Contouring – Now Everyone Is Apparently “Non-Touring”

It's selfie season!

It’s coming into selfie season…

And this summer we are losing the heavy contouring and embracing the latest makeup trend – non-touring.

The trend lit up the Burberry, Roberto Cavalli and Victoria Beckham SS16 catwalks, and it’s all about a light, highlighted glow (because no-one likes brown sludge melting on their face in the heat).

SEVENTEEN make-up artist Vanessa Guallar explains:

“Contouring will always remain a beauty trend but as we move towards the hotter months, a lighter, luminous look is the way forward. The great news is; it doesn’t take long to achieve. All you need is a hard-working concealor and highlighter and you’re ready to radiate.”

Vanessa’s Top Tips to achieve the look

Step One – “Focus on where the natural light hits your face and dot the brightening concealer to amplify those areas. Apply across your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, cupids bow, inner corner of the eyes and brow bone and blend in with your fingers..”

Step Three – “Leave the rest of your face natural and slick on mascara and a nude shade on your lips.”
