Step aside clown makeup — the latest makeup craze is heart contouring, and it’s completely adorable. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, heart contouring is all about emphasizing your favorite features using (you guessed it) hearts. The trend focuses on using cream products to draw a variety of heart shapes in order to highlight and contour wherever you please. Basically, it's fun and cute and everything beauty products are supposed to be about.
Like any other contour routine, heart contouring focuses on highlighting the forehead and chin, while bringing dimension and shape to the cheeks. What sets this trend apart, however, is that it can be used to shape your eyes and lips, as well. Simply draw hearts along your crease to create a smoky eye, or trace your pout with hearts for a bold lip look. It may seem silly at first, but once blended, this makeup trend looks flawless. Plus, it’s an easy way to get yourself to enjoy putting on your makeup again. Just look how cute it is! Wondering how to use hearts to create a makeup look? Here are few videos that outline how exactly to pull off this fun new trend.
