Another addition to the ever-growing list of highlighting and contouring trends is here, and we think it’s amazing.
Self-taught makeup artist Shahina Aslam created this henna contouring video as her entry to Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Contour Kit contest. “I am an Indian girl who wears Hijab, why not take advantage of my culture and show it off in a beautiful way?" she told Marie Claire. “It’s really just for fun, and only took me two minutes, even though I'm not great with henna designs.”
Since then, many other bloggers have tried the technique. It begins by painting intricate swirls and patterns on the face using cream and liquid sculpting products with a fine-tip brush. Everything is then blended out, leaving the skin with a perfectly bronzed and highlighted glow.
Pretty cool, huh? It's makeup! It's meant to be enjoyed!
