Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, and More Celebs Who "Killed Contouring"
If you can't scroll through your Instagram feed without watching a contouring video, know it's about to change. According to the connoisseurs of taste at Vogue.com, the chiseled chin fad may be on its way out. The magazine deems that the "baby face" is coming back into fashion. And we have to admit: we're ready to embrace this fresh look for Spring.
Megamodel Gigi Hadid can be credited for leading the trend charge. "Where the Kardashians sparked a bronzer boom with their sharp features, Hadid brings an unexpected freshness that has cast the baby face — round, pinchable — in a newly flattering light," the Vogue.com author pens.
The cute, "plumped-cheek" look can be characterised by dewy skin and a lack of using bronzer to create deep shadows and hallows around the face. But it's definitely not a no-makeup look as features can be accented to look doll-like thanks to lush lashes, pearly pink lips, and of course a rose flush of blush or light dusting of copper.
Make note that in our opinions, this is also not about having a young face, it's about having a youthful makeup look. And the best way to embrace it is by focusing on your skincare routine. And try eating an organic, plant-based diet, because nothing will make your mug glow like ingesting a ton of vitamins.
Try it at home by swapping your heavy foundation for a sheer, luminous primer (like Tom Ford Complexion Enhancing Primer), applying a cream blush (we like La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush), and coating your lashes with a volumisng mascara (try Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lash 5 Star Mascara). Leave your lips bare or choose a barely there colour, such as Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo.
