Want to look like a supermodel? “Non-Touring” is a newest trend that will help you look like a supermodel. Read the article below to know how!
When temperatures and humidity start to rise, we update our make-up bags, trading in our rich foundations and powder blushes for more lightweight, dewier formulas. Our complexions might have felt oppressed by heavy contouring makeup in years past, but not this Summer. We’re skipping that step entirely in favour of the new low-maintenance beauty trend: non-touring.
Similar to the “baby face” trend, non-touring spotlights fresh, healthy skin and lightly strobed features. Celebrity makeup artist Renee Sanganoo told Marie Claire that models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are key examples of stars who have mastered this look.
“It’s kind of like Spanx for the skin,” she explained. “You know you’re wearing it, but no one’s supposed to see it.”
Not only will your face feel like it can breathe when you try non-touring, you’ll also be delighted by how simple the technique is. It consists of only three steps that even a makeup amateur can grasp.
After applying a luminous primer like Guerlain Météorites Base, even out your complexion with a tinted moisturiser. Then complete your look by adding a highlighter like Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent to the high points of your face, like your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow.
The best part? Because of the priming step, this trend is practically sweatproof, too, making it ideal to wear well into the steamiest days of Summer.
Since Kylie Jenner dropped her metallic lip kits we’ve been seeing reflective pouts crop up all over our insta-feeds. Yep, the youngest from the Kardashian clan seems to be on a mission to revive some of the 90s long-lost beauty trends, from brick-brown lip colours to grungy eyeliner, and now, frosted, shimmery pouts.
Unlike the ever-so glossy metallic lips of the 90s, 2016 has seen formulas reinvented with a matte finish.
Beauty brands like Too Faced, MUA, Jeffree Star and of course, Kylie Cosmetics, are creating metallic liquid lipsticks that give a super-sheen, but, dry down matte, making them a *tad* easier to pull off than the super-slick, glossy versions. They’re still a LONG way from lip balm territory though, so steer clear if you’re easily spooked by bold makeup.
As with any liquid lipstick, the key is to make sure you pout is in the best condition possible. Start by buffing away any dry patches with a lips scrub. Then, load up on an ultra-nourishing balm like the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, to soften. When it comes to applying your liquid lipstick use a precision lip brush to help avoid a wonky lip line, and finally, trace the edges with a touch of concealer for a flawless finish, et voila!

Whether your lips are full or thin, find out how to make that luscious lips! Check the article below to discover all the best tips!
There is a fashion currently for big pouty bee-stung lips. Think Scarlett Johannson and Angelina Jolie who both have very full and luscious-looking mouths.
While the size of your lips is genetically determined, the thinning that occurs with age is often influenced by factors like cold weather, hot showers and lip licking – anything that dries them out. Sun damage can also have an effect and, as lips don’t have oil glands, it’s easy to see how important it is to nourish them and protect them at all times from the elements.
Protecting your lips
I like to use lip balms for protection. Burt’s Bees has a selection of lip balms (approx £3.99) with various ‘flavours’ from Coconut and Pear to Mango Butter, all containing a wide variety of natural ingredients designed to help hydrate and nourish your lips. They also sell a ‘rescue’ balm which is brilliant if lips become chapped during cold weather or sunburn.
I like to include my lips in my regular routines of skin care. In other words I gently exfoliate them to remove any dead skin and ensure that they are included when I apply my daily serum and moisturiser. When I apply my make-up I always take a cotton bud and having wet my lips, I rub away any foundation which has accumulated so that I am applying my Lip Prime to clean smooth lips.
How to stop your lipstick bleeding
One of the most distressing aspects of my ageing face has been the tendency of my lipstick to ‘feather’ and ‘bleed’ into the tiny wrinkles around my mouth. I have never smoked, but if you have (or are still) a smoker then this is likely to be a challenge.
Fortunately there is any easy solution. As part of the LFF range, I insisted on having an effective Lip Prime to ensure that my lip colour stays put. Apply it once a day around the outer part of the mouth – and massage it into the edges of the lips. Allow to dry before applying your lipstick.
How to apply lipstick
Forget overdrawn lip liner – it’s too obvious. The goal is to maximise what you’ve got, so apply the first coat of your lipstick with a brush in order to get into every corner and edge. Another good tip is to press on the area above the lip with your finger so that you create the fullest lip area possible.
How to make your lipstick last
Look Fabulous Forever Lip Colours are well pigmented with colour and a made in a texture to help them to last. However there are a couple of tricks you can use to help the colour to stay put for longer. Apply a thinnish coat with a brush. Use a finger to rub the colour into the lips, creating a lip stain. Next apply a second coat with a brush and blot with a tissue. Final coat can be with or without a brush and for the rest of the day you can ‘touch up’ from the directly onto the lips without a brush.
How to make your lips look fuller
A dab of gloss (Look Fabulous Forever Lip Shine) just in the centre of the lower lip grabs the light, making the fat pad appear fuller. Finish by tracing a bit of Look Fabulous Forever Light highlighter just above the lip line and at the Cupid’s bow. This creates a 3D effect and gives the illusion of more pronounced lips.
How to choose the right lipstick colour
You’ll never make a bad lipstick purchase again if you know whether you are cool or warm toned.
Cool toned women look best in pretty soft pinks, plummy, berry shades and bright pinks and dark bluey reds for drama.
Warm toned women should go for soft caramel colours, coral pinks and orange-y reds for special occasions. See Choosing Colours on the LFF website.
KYLIE Jenner may only be 18 but it’s fair to say, she has pretty exceptional skin.
Yes, she does have some of the world’s best skincare experts helping her out along the way but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t listen when she tells us her top tips.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Kim Kardashian’s sibling has revealed her 4 ultimate skincare hacks, and they’re tips we can totally follow ourselves without busting any bank accounts.
From how to care for your face while travelling, to a really odd suncream tip, Kylie has openly revealed everything she knows and has learnt from her sisters.
Tyga’s girlfriend started by talking about skin moisturising while travelling and while we’ve heard it time and time again, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star couldn’t advise it enough.
She told them: “My travel skin tip is to take your make-up off and use masks to hydrate the skin when you’re on a flight. I use the NIP+FAB Kale Fix moisturiser if my skin is dry from travelling as it is so hydrating.”
