Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the term contouring. While the sculpting technique has been practiced even by vintage Hollywood starlets, Kim Kardashian’s killer cheekbones thrust it into the limelight. That led to contouring’s rise to fame, followed by neck contouring. The celebrity status of the trend led to recommendations by makeup artists and video tutorials worldwide, making it an essential technique that every woman needed to know.

latest makeup trend noncontouring

This season, the latest makeup trend in town could be termed as the step sister of contouring. We’re talking about nontouring and based on the celebrity clientele practicing the technique, it’s all set to be the next big thing in makeup. Recognised as a more feasible trend which is an anti-contouring of sorts, celebrity makeup artists have even pin-pointed that supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid as well as red carpet darling Zendaya are the best example of this trend.

latest makeup tips for summer

The essence of nontouring lies in dewy skin with more natural coverage that allows your features to be highlighted. Unlike contouring, which spoke of denser coverage and sharper lines, you don’t need to be a makeup ace to nontour your face. Like the similarly popular strobing trend that proved to be a fresh breath of air to the makeup world, nontouring shows a great deal of promise for summer.

For makeup tips to try the nontouring trend, start by dotting the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation all over your face and blend it into your skin with a buffing brush. Tailor made for Indian skin and climes, it'll add a natural sheen and give it a dewy finish. Follow this by dipping a winged brush into the highlighter pan of the Lakmé Absolute Moon-lit Highlighter. Then dust the powder on top of your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose, on your brow bones and your cupid’s bow. The highlighter will define your features and add luminosity to your face.
