Everyday there is a new beauty trend and with each trend comes in a new beauty term.So I’m going to be starting a new series on my blog where every week I make a post and elaborate on a new makeup/beauty trend and explain step by step how to achieve the look.Today let’s talk about Non-Touring,shall we?
Non-touring is nothing but the opposite of contouring.It’s all about “the glow from within.”So why not call it highlighting then,yes I hear you,but that’s because the former is being subtle and adding a radiant glow.More like “You know you’re wearing makeup,but no one is supposed to see.”This look can be achieved in 3 simple steps,so let’s start!
•You want to start by prepping your skin with an illuminating primer.I like to use the “BENEFIT THAT GAL BRIGHTENING PRIMER” this not only gives a good base for the makeup but adds a tiny hint of glow to the skin that we are looking for.
Other Options would be:
Drugstore:Loreal Magic Lumi primer
High -end:Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Lighting Illuminating Emulsion
Now you want to apply a BB cream/Tinted Moisturiser after prepping the skin avoiding any heavy weight foundation on the skin because you want to get a little bit of coverage allowing your natural skin to seep thru.
I like using the “Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser” for this,as this gives a slight hint of color adding a natural glow without hiding the skin.
Other Options Would be:
Drugstore:Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moisturiser
High-end:Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturiser
Step 3(Final step)
This is the final step to the whole process.It’s basically adding either a liquid or powder highlighter to the high points of the face on all the light reflecting areas of the face.
I use the “Nourish Liquid Illuminating Face Shimmer”
I like using the liquid shimmer for this final step as I like using my fingers to blend it in to give a natural glow to my face.All the “Nourish” products have anti-ageing properties which is a plus and gives a golden/radiant shimmer to the face.
Other options would be:
Drugstore:Loreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Illuminator
High-end:Benefit Sun Beam
And there you have it a “Non-toured” look😀
