What Is Non-Touring? The New Way To Contour That Only Involves 3 Products

June 13, 2016 by India Unger-Harquail
shefinds | beauty

At this point, we’re all familiar with contouring. I love how angled and defined contouring can make my face look as much as the next woman, but sometimes I get tired of it. It takes forever to do and you need so many products to pull it off. Worst of all, contouring is crazy heavy and as we get closer to summer heat, I get even more scared that my makeup is just going to slide right off. Also, with all of those crazy clown contouring videos on YouTube, I’m not totally convinced that contouring isn’t just a joke that makeup gurus are playing on all of us normal people.

Luckily, this season’s new makeup trend promises to change all that. Non-touring is pretty much the antithesis of contouring. The idea of non-touring is to highlight the bone and facial structure that you already have, instead of trying to erase it all and then create a new one. This means that it’s much easier, and much lighter, than contouring. Best of all, your face still looks like you after all your makeup is done.

When you non-tour, the goal is to look fresh faced, bright and refreshed; think Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who are both big fans. Because this is a more daytime friendly look and it only requires 3 products, non-touring is a super fast process. All you need to non-tour is primer, tinted moisturizer and highlighter. Here’s what to do next:

1. Prime. Create a smooth base on your face with a primer. It’s important to focus coverage on the roughest areas of your face, like the forehead and nose, where pores are biggest. The best primers for this kind of makeup look are dewy and have a little bit of a shimmer.

2. Moisturize. Cover your face with a tinted moisturizer, BB cream or sheer to medium brightening and luminizing foundation to create smooth, even, healthy looking skin. You want a light layer of product that looks totally natural and that isn’t too heavy.

3. Highlight. Finally, apply highlighter. When you’re highlighting, dust the highest areas of your face, like your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, brow bone and the center of your nose–all the places that light would naturally hit. Make sure to choose a natural looking highlighter that flatters your skin tone and isn’t chock-full of glitter; it should look  natural. You can finish off the look with some light eye makeup and sheer lip color for a natural, barely there appearance.

So if you’re ready for an I-woke-up-like-this summer glow, non-touring is for you. Your makeup budget–and your morning routine–will certainly thank you.

Be sure to check out the right way to apply deodorant and the one thing you should never do when braiding your hair.
