Thanks to the Kardashians, contouring is the latest and greatest fashion trend.

However this kind of make up takes AGES. Like HOURS. And to be honest, unless we have a make up artist at our finger tips 24/7, who can be bothered?

So, we’ve found the below five contouring tips for lazy girls that want to avoid spending hours in front of the mirror but want to look super glam.

1. Highlight with “3” 

A Buzzfeed article suggests taking an eye highlighter and making a number 3 shape on each side of your face, starting above the brow and finishing near your jaw. The middle line should be swept above your cheekbone. There – all your major highlighting done in just seconds!

2. Use Your Fingers 


Makeup artist master Dam-Mikkelsen told Elle “To bring out your cheekbones, find the hollow part by placing your fingers on the sides of your face and where you feel it dip underneath the bones, just above is where you place your pigment.”

3. Invest in a beauty blender 

Beauty blender sponges are great for creating small, precise lines on one side while the other side can be used to smooth and blend for a clean contour.

4. Get a complete contouring kit 


Instead of risking coordinating shades for your contouring, save yourself time, money and frustrations by buying a complete contour kit!

5. Set with Loose Powder 

Dam-Mikkelsen also told Elle that “Translucent is best for securing a cream foundation”. This will stop all of your ‘hard’ work from melting off your face when you go outside!
