Non-touring: contouring you can do on holiday

There's a new contouring trend and this one's perfect for your holiday. Meet non-touring: the softer take on skin sculpting that takes 60 seconds to do. Really. It defines your features in the prettiest way - using a shimmering blusher and highlighter - while a hint of shading gives your face a natural-looking finish.

Think of it as strobing and traditional contouring teaming up, as you still get the feature-popping pros of sculpting, with a good amount of glow. And here's the best part: because it's so quick, you don't even need to head back to your hotel to prep for the evening. Simply non-tour your way to a night-out face - all from the comfort of your sun lounger.

Want in? Of course you do. Follow these three easy steps for the most believable blush around...

1. Do the dew

Use your fingers to apply a foundation that's packed with light-reflecting particles, likeWake Me Up Foundation, £8.99, which veils your skin in radiance pearls. Focus it on the centre of your face and gradually blend it outwards, adding more where you feel your skin needs it.

2. Subtly sculpt

Non-tour doesn't meannotcontouring - it means sculpting really softly, so swap the pro shading for a gentle sweep of powder just beneath your cheekbones. For a colour that mimics the natural shadows on your face, use the deepest shade in theKate Sculpting Palette, £6.99. It's easy to blend for a gentle, diffused finish.

3. Blush and glow

Now, bump up the glow. Start swirling the pink blusher from the Kate Sculpting Palette, £6.99, on the apples of your cheeks, and gradually sweep it up towards your temples. Next, add the highlighting powder on the tops of your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose. The shimmer is so fine and radiance-boosting, it's perfect if you fancy adding strobing effects, too.
