Have you been on Instagram lately? Then you’ve probably noticed all of the weird body contouring tutorials taking over your feed. In addition to using makeup to sculpt your face, you can also contour your legs — and even your feet. W. T. F.
But some celebs are bucking the whole contouring trend and opting instead for a more subtle sculpt. “Non-touring makeup” — a no-makeup makeup look with a healthy dose of highlighter — is huge. Just ask Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, who are fans of this simplified beauty look.
Another option for when you just don’t want to to bake, contour and strobe is wearing two blushes at once. This beauty hack might sound like a little overkill, but it’s simple to do and, depending on how you apply the blushes, can define your cheekbones, soften your angles or make your face appear more slim. With no contouring chops needed!
To define your cheekbones, apply the lighter of the two blushes on the apples of your cheeks, blending towards your ear. Then, swipe the darker shade blending towards your ear again.
To soften the angles of your face, perfect for those with a square face shape, blend the two shades and apply to the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion.
If you’ve got a round face and would like to define your cheekbones more, apply the lighter blush to your cheekbones and sweep upwards toward your temples. Apply the darker blush on the middle of your cheekbones and sweep downwards.
While you may not have heard of this makeup hack, your favorite celeb has probably been doing it for awhile. Tattoo pro and makeup fanatic Kat Von D has even released the Shade + Light Two Tone Blush ($43) for those days when non-touring is all you’ve got the steam to do. You can also try the NYX Ombre Blush ($10), the Bobbi Brown Blush Duo ($42) or the BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Duos ($5). Happy non-touring!
