What Is Non-Touring?

"Non-Touring" Is the New Trend That Will Make You Look Like a Supermodel

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 (£46), even out your complexion with a tinted moisturiser. (Try Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 [£32] for a boosted glow!) Then complete your look by adding a highlighter like Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent (£34) 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.
