All about that skin: Non-touring

One of the strongest themes for beauty to come out this season is the ‘barely there’ beauty look. ‘Non-touring’ (a more natural hybrid of contouring and strobing) is guaranteed to help you achieve an effortless ‘I woke up like this’ healthy, glowing skin finish.

Say goodbye to heavy lines and caked on powders and hello to less product, softer lines and a sculpted glow… it’s all in the technique that’s easy as one, two, three.

The tools 

To start you will need a primer, tinted moisturiser (for those with some blemishes a great concealer will do) and a highlighter.

The technique 

Step 1: To achieve this look you need to apply a great primer suited to your skin type – skin is supposed to have a dewy finish, so try stay away from primers that matte the skin too much and opt for ones that have luminous finishes.

Step 2: The whole point of non-touring is for skin to look like actual skin, so stay clear of full cover foundations and rather opt for light coverage foundations, tinted moisturisers, BB creams and CC creams for those who need added care to treat blemishes.

Beauty ed’s tip: A correcting concealer will do wonders for blemished skin, giving the coverage needed to achieve this look as the spots get treated while you “paint”.

Step 3: To complete this look, choose highlighters that best suit your skin tone. Bronze and gold highlighters always flatter darker tones beautifully and peachy or light pink undertones in highlighters complement lighter tones. Start from the top down and apply your highlighter to the following areas: under the brow bone, down the centre of your nose, onto your Cupid’s bow above the lips, finishing off with highlighting above your cheekbones. These are all areas where light naturally hits.
