The Contouring Craze Just Reached Another Level Entirely

Ah lads.

Cathy Donohue

Leg contouring.

Just when we thought this particular beauty craze had reached its peak, along comes another mad way to contour.

Beauty bloggers are taking to Instagram to showcase how they sculpt their legs and seeing as summer is approaching, this trend is likely to take off.

New York-based makeup artist Nikki French posted the below video and her technique is pretty impressive.

Nikki starts off with a dark liquid bronzer, paints lines with a brush, fills them in with a highlighter and finishes off with a facial mist.

Macedonian makeup artist Make up by Meri, has a more elaborate take on leg contouring and the pattern she created looks very complicated.

The end result is cool though and if you have the time, this looks like a fun trend to try.

However, we can’t see this fitting into our usual routines and we might just stick with whacking on some Sally!
