Why “Nontouring” is Better Than Contouring

Move over contouring, there’s something new in the makeup world. It’s called strobing—or “nontouring,” and it’s pretty much the alter ego of the face-thinning contouring trend.

A hot makeup trend of the last few years, contouring involves using darker foundations or concealer on the chin, neck, and areas close to the hairline, and lighter-colored foundations on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and areas where light hits in order to make the face look lean.

Strobing, on the other hand, promotes a younger look by highlighting the tops of the cheeks and inner corners of the eyes. Strobing gives a soft, dewy appearance to make a person look younger.

Here are some additional advantages of nontouring:

Compared to contouring, it’s a simple technique. To strobe, apply a primer followed by a light, dewy foundation or tinted moisturizer and concealer on areas where you need coverage. Then apply highlighter to the tip of your hose, the tops of your cheeks, and your brow bone. Whala—you’re ready to roll.

It’s quicker. When done correctly, contouring can take 30 minutes or more. You can nontour in just a few minutes or less.

It’s cheaper. Contouring involves using a few different shades of foundation to create a more chiseled look. This requires a person to invest in multiple bottles, which adds up.

It’s a more natural look. Because contouring involves several different shades of foundation, it can result in a “made up” appearance. Nontouring, on the other hand, promotes a soft, radiant glow.

3 Secrets for Using Concealer

3 Secrets for Using Concealer

Whether you’re dealing with dark circles around the eyes, pimples or other facial imperfections, concealer can be a tremendously useful product. Of course, as with any type of makeup, there’s certainly an art to using it correctly. Apply it in the wrong place or in the incorrect manner, and you can actually make the concealer itself stand out more than the blemish did. When you get it right, though, the results can be flawless perfection.

Luckily, it only takes a few tips and tricks to become a concealer-applying pro. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Adore Cosmetics and had them share their concealer secrets with us.

#1 Try a Triangle
One of concealer’s most valuable uses is as a method for hiding dark circles and lines under the eyes. However, many people address this problem with a simple swipe of concealer right underneath the lower eye lid. Instead, a better approach is to use concealer to make a full triangle beneath the eye, with the point facing down. This approach draws attention to the eyes and also makes the face appear lifted. In addition, this larger coverage area is easier to blend out seamlessly into the rest of the face.

#2 Go Green
When it comes to concealing pimples, it can go one of two ways: Either you use so much that the concealer becomes more visible than the pimple was, or you use not enough, and you can still see the pimple. To conceal pimples correctly, start with a green concealer that counteracts the red of the pimple. Then follow up with a skin-tone liquid concealer to mask the green and blend it seamlessly with the surrounding skin.

#3 Address Under-Eye Circles
A lot of the trick with using concealer correctly is matching the color to the problem. When it comes to under-eye circles, they’re often blue, so a peach or orange concealer is the correct contrasting color to use. Another tip for under-eye circles is to apply the concealer with your ring finger rather than your index finger. Since the ring finger is weaker, it’ll put down a lighter swipe of concealer that’ll be easier to blend with the rest of your face.

Testing clothing

How to check if your whole clothes are good quality.

Purchasing wholesale tops or other clothing can sometimes be worrisome, many wholesalers out there are not the quality they claim to be. Finding someone who is willing to give you quality items at a good price can be the biggest battle we struggle with in getting stock for our businesses, buying items such as wholesale pants that fall apart with one wash can be a big pain when trying to own a reputable business.

To avoid having your reputation tarnished by clothes that may seem well made but after a first wash or serious wear are garbage, always get a test product first. Most reputable places will be happy to send you a sample product, usually for a little higher than bulk single price but it shouldn’t be too much. Then tug on some of the “stress” areas, so for jeans it would be the knees, rear, crotch, and pockets. If you are a particularly strong person, putting all your force into it isn’t necessary but give it a good few tugs, and put it through the wash with other clothes, and tug on it a few more times. If it doesn’t tear or rip then it’s rather decently made. Though some clothes are naturally more fragile then others so the rules doesn’t apply as much, such as sheer over shirts and leggings, but it’s still important to check the quality of the sew and fabric as much as possible. Because even if it is fragile, if a customer wears it only a few times and finds a bad review, then your store will be to blame, not the supplier.
