If you think you've done everything in contouring, think again. A new viral beauty technique known as "glowtouring" has been making rounds on various social media platforms.

What is glowtouring?

Glowtouring is the latest viral trend in makeup, challenging traditional contouring methods. This technique focuses on applying a generous amount of product to achieve a glowing, contoured look. While contouring has long been a staple in makeup routines, glowtouring offers a fresh approach, emphasizing a more natural and radiant finish. With its innovative application method, glowtouring is set to redefine how we contour our faces, offering a more luminous and effortless look.

How to do this viral beauty technique

To achieve the glowtouring look, embrace a more generous application of contouring products. Unlike traditional techniques, glowtouring involves applying the product in one sweeping motion. 

Step 1 | Darker Contour

Start by applying a darker shade of contour in semi-circular motions from the forehead, over the cheeks, to the jawbones.
