Can You Contour Without Using Makeup? One Skincare Line Says Yes
Despite what you may have heard, getting a long-lasting contour doesn't have to involving dozens of palettes and products. In fact, Dr. Jart+ Liftra Collection promises to create sculpted cheekbones without using a drop of makeup. The collection features two skincare products and a specialty beauty tool that claims to create the appearance of more defined cheekbones. For those of us who strive for an #onfleek contour, this is pretty much a dream come true.
According to the brand, the range of products in the kit are meant to enhance the look of the cheekbones, while improving the tone and texture of the skin. In fact, both skincare products are filled to the brim with nourishing antioxidants that help to hydrate face, while reducing redness, according to Brydie.com.
This kit was even used backstage at the DKNY F/W 2016 fashion show to prep the models' skin for makeup. So, if models and professional makeup artists are using this kit to enhance their own cheekbones, then it must be good.
In an interview with Byrdie.com, Dr. Rachel Nazarian stated, “Facial circulation and lymphatic drainage helps to decrease puffiness and stimulate muscles." The Dr. Jart+ Liftra Collection uses those exact techniques to contour the face. However, Nazarian also mentioned that these results can often be short-term. So, if you're looking a constant contour, be sure to use the system daily for continued results.
In my opinion, the stand out feature of this skincare routine isn't the actual skincare products themselves, but rather the metal tool that accompanies them. The Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Shaper looks like nothing I've ever seen before.
According to the brand's website, you're supposed to rub the tool along your cheekbones to stimulate the blood circulation and strengthen your skin's elasticity. Basically, it's a hand roller that will massage your skin. Not a bad addition to your skincare routine, if I do say so myself.
So, if you're looking to improve your cheekbones without using makeup, I would definitely check out this kit. It's worth it just for the facial massage.
