Non-Touring: It’s Like Contouring, Only Subtle
It’s been a busy few years for contouring, theÂ makeup technique the Kardashians showed us where we can eachÂ achieve our own artfully sculpted face. Bronzer became cool again, everyone decided they liked strobing,Â aka excess-highlighting,Â and now that our complexions feelÂ oppressed by loads of heavy makeup, we’ve decided we’re onto the next beauty trend â€” “non-touring.”
So, wtf is it? Non-touring achieves fresh, healthy skin: “Instead of a heavy contoured look, non-touring is very soft,” make-up artist Renee Sanganoo explained to Marie Claire US. “Itâ€™s about dewy and glowy skin â€“ you donâ€™t want the skin to look super matte or dry. Itâ€™s kind of like Spanx for the skin. You know youâ€™re wearing it, but no oneâ€™s supposed to see it.”

HERE’S HOW TOÂ GET THE LOOK:
Pulling off a non-touring look requires little effort â€” it consists of three tiny steps that literally anyone can grasp. The key here is to think less about sculpted cheekbones and more about keeping the skin dewy.
1. Create a smooth base with primer (we likeÂ Too Faced Primed & Poreless Primer), focusing on your forehead and nose.
2. Even out your complexion with aÂ tinted moisturizer or a light, luminizing foundation (like Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer).
3. Get ready to strategically place yourÂ highlighter â€” hit your face along the brow bone, on the top of the cheeks, and down the center of the nose where light naturally bounces off (try RMS Beauty Living Luminizer).
AND BAM, YOU’RE PERFECT.
