Dear Face: meet nontouring. Just when you thought the millionth YouTube tutorial attempt was going to help you master your contouring, the beauty world says “Move over!” and introduces you to Nontouring. Nontouring is the love-child of contouring and strobing, and is meant to produce slimming definition that is countered with a soft, lit-from-within glow. Thankfully this trend arrives just as we pull back the curtain on our newest, innovative creation: The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo.
Our The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo has two amazing products in one easy-to-use palette that is sure to make you a Nontouring pro in no time. Our green beauty master makeup artist, Shirley Pinkson, thinks of Nontouring as “instantly faking a facial”. The key is to contour with a cream bronzer that is a natural shade of matte brown, instead of too orange or fake, and then keep skin vibrant, dewy and radiant with a combination of tinted moisturizer and highlighter.
Nontouring using our natural, vegan, cruelty-free, nontoxic cosmetics is as simple as knowing how to swipe! All of our cream cosmetics are formulated with a powerful blend of coconut oil, organic aloe and chamomile. Our hydrating formula leaves your skin dewy while infusing it with nourishing, botanical ingredients that help treat and improve your skin’s appearance while you wear it. This new product is our solution to the over-done, too orange, not-at-all-natural bronzers and contouring kits. The The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo helps give your face a hint of color, helps you ad subtle definition where you want it, and most importantly it keeps your skin looking fresh, dewy and entirely natural.
To get your Nontour on, start by evening out your skin-tone using our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer with SPF 30. A tip from Shirley: apply Bio Tint using the pads of your fingers to gently blend into skin. Bio Tint Multi Action Moisturizer with SPF 30 is infused with broccoli seed oil, which allows it to spread evenly and absorb effortlessly into skin, but also prevents creasing while supplying your skin with a healthy dose of vitamin K.
Next, add some depth to your complexion using our Bio Bronzer Cream, included in the The Natural Contour and Highlight Duo. Apply and blend using your fingertips or our Flat Foundation Brush. Avoid using bronzer to define your nose or chisel your cheekbones, and instead focus on areas that would naturally be kissed by the sun — a touch of color on the top of your nose or center of your forehead is enough to help create the ethereal glow that Nontouring is known for.
The last step is the key to mastering your Nontour! We recommend using a cream highlighter that like our award-winning Bio Brightener Cream. Simply finish your look by highlighting the areas of your face where light would naturally hit it — just under your brow bone, down the bridge of your nose, on the cupids bow of your lips, and if you’re feeling adventurous, highlighter on the center of the forehead or just above the arch of the brow can also create a beautiful effect.
