How to contour using sellotape
Just when we think we’ve reached peak contouring
I’m always super excited any time there is a new make up techniques,
Just when we think we’ve reached peak contouring, in comes another bonkers technique. We’ve had clown contouring and Christmas contouring, but the latest trend is sellotape contouring.
Dubai-based Beauty blogger Huda Kattan posted on Instagram how-to video which shows how to contour using sellotape, claiming that this is the easiest way to contour your face.
You simply place the tape as guidelines around the areas you want to apply the foundation that is darker to your skin tone. Once applied within the tape, you peel off the tape and apply a lighter shade of highlighter or foundation and blend. Then ta da! You are left with Kylie Jenner-esque cheekbones.
In the video Huda advises that tape can take moisture out of your skin, so remove the stickiness of the tape by putting it against your arm a couple of times before applying to your face.
She says in the video “I wouldn’t recommend using this on a daily basis because I felt moisture coming off my skin when I did that so I would do it every once in a while or once a week. You will notice over time that you may start to wrinkle in the areas you use the sellotape.”
