Gone are the days of heavy contouring – it’s time to get ‘non-touring’. Wondering what we’re talking about? Read on…
Dewy, fresh bases with sculpted features reigned supreme on the international catwalks and the word ‘glowing’ was used in every review. The key to this is non-touring – the lightweight version of contouring, as MAC make-up director Lyne Desnoyers explains. Luckily even make-up amateurs can grasp this low-maintenance beauty trend.
Apply a luminous primer to smooth out the texture of your skin; follow with a light, glow-enhancing tinted moisturiser to even your tone; finish with a soft highlighter in a neutral or slightly bronzed hue to warm your complexion. Liquid highlighters work well and can even be mixed into your base for a flawless finish.
