Henna Contouring

Henna Contouring Is the New Stunning Technique You Have to See

Anyone hooked on contouring is familiar with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. It's a favorite of Kim Kardashian's, a constant bestseller at Sephora, and the product that made the trend popular with the everyday beauty-lover. After all, makeup artists (pro and amateur) all over Instagram use it to show off their dramatic before-and-afters. So, what better way to pay tribute to the instantly iconic palette than with a contouring competition?

Anastasia Beverly Hills is offering a grand prize of $10,000 to the contestant with the best 60-second sculpting video, and self-taught makeup artist Shahina Aslam is making the challenge her own with a unique spin: henna contouring. Using Anastasia Beverly Hills contour and highlight products, Shahina painted intricate designs on her face, then buffed them into her skin. This creative chiseling technique is similar to clown contouring — the artist draws fantastic artwork on her face, but once blended, all that's left behind is a flawless complexion. Watch the stunning technique and get inspired.
