Just like every year, one of our resolutions for 2016 is to get into better shape. And while we're working hard on this goal, we're also kind of faking it until we see our hard-earned results. One of our favorite vloggers, Huda Kattan, shared her crafty makeup tip for feigning a whittled waist in a crop top — contouring! — and it's inspired us to break out our makeup brushes and use them below the neckline. While you can use self-tanner to create an illusion of a more chiseled body, pale girls may feel more confident with this more subtle take on sculpting (especially in Winter).
Don't feel like you have to restrict your contouring skills to carving out faux abs! We've rounded up a handful of Instagram tutorials to help you achieve your goal of a rockin' bod, whether you're looking for fuller cleavage or a more defined clavicle. And we're not ditching our dedication to fitness — we swear! We're just impatient, so using makeup to brush on our impending muscle definition inspires us to keep pushing ourselves at the gym. Read on for some clever contouring techniques.
