The contour trend continues
I don’t know about you but I’ve well and truly jumped on the contouring bandwagon. I have quite round cheeks so the huge range of contour kits on the market means I can experiment with more chiselled make-up looks that Kimmy K would be proud of! These are just a few of my faves:
So, it’s no surprise that when I heard about ‘body contouring’ I just had to find out more. Similar to contouring your face with make-up, body contouring involves using light and dark shades to strategically shape areas of the body to look slimmer and more defined (like real-life photoshopping!). So, how do you do it? It’s all about using the natural curves of your body and thinking about where the light naturally hits these areas. Check out our guide below!
For killer cleavage, use an instant tan spray or shimmer bronzer in a light colour to highlight the natural ‘v’ shape curve of your chest. Your breasts will look instantly fuller and lifted, sans VS Bombshell Bra!
Whether you’re a gym junkie or not, your arms will have natural definition when you flex. Spray your favourite instant tanner in the crevice your flexed muscle creates to enhance the definition and craft a slimmer-looking arm!
Spraying a tic-tac-toe grid on your stomach will not give you an instant six-pack (if only!) however shading either side of your tum will sculpt your mid-section to create the illusion of tighter abs.
Having inherited the Bradley family thunder thighs, I’m all for any tricks to help them appear slimmer. Enter, body contouring! Since darker areas absorb light, darkening the outward-facing surface of your thighs will make them look smaller. So, pre-beach day, apply an extra layer of your overnight tan down the outside edges of your thighs.
As with contouring your face, you need a base layer before you start sculpting, so ensure you’ve already applied a glowing layer of even tan all over your body before you spray your way to a slimmer you. God, I love fake tan!
Here are my picks for products that will help to firm your skin and contour your body:
