If you’d just started to get the hang of this contouring business (along with the rest of us), I’m about to ruin your day. Really, I’m very sorry.
Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, the person largely responsible for bringing contouring into the mainstream for his looks on the Kardashians, has heralded the end of the sharp cheeked, face-shape-changing craze.
Yes, contouring is officially dead.
In its place is the latest, hottest trend to spend hours pouring over YouTube makeup tutorials to try and master – ‘Glossing’.
“Glossy is the new look. Glossy skin, lids and lips. Apply petroleum or glycerin like products onto lids, cheeks and lips for the most gorgeous glow without powdery texture,” Dedivanovic told Femail.
Turns out gloss isn’t just for lips – it’s much more versatile than that. A favourite of noughties popstars and editorial shoots, 2017’s glossing is just as shiny and can be worn as bold or as pared back as you like.
