Whether you’re a contouring goddess (even getting in on hair contouring and leg contouring like a total makeup boss) or never quite get the hang of it (contouring 101, anyone?), we’ve got some news for you. This summer, forget contouring all together because “non-touring” is the makeup trend you’re going to want to take on.
“Instead of a heavy contoured look, non-touring is very soft,” celebrity makeup artist Renee Sanganoo explained to Marie Claire. Apparently the current go-to for celebs like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner when they’re wanting something a little lighter, the look is all “about dewy and glowy skin—you don’t want the skin to look super matte or dry.”
The result? Well, check out Zendaya and JLo mastering the makeup with Sanganoo saying, “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.”
How can you get the non-touring look for yourself? Sanganoo gives us three easy steps.
First, “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.”
Second, since “this is a more natural look, a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream should be used instead of a heavy, full coverage foundation. If you have problematic skin or blemishes, use a concealer as a spot treatment.”
Finally, 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.”
Try it out and we guarantee you’ll be adding this to your fave summer looks!
