Don’t ditch contouring for strobing just yet — give it one final chance for the sake of Christmas.
Because it’s fun to give your makeup a festive twist and what says Christmas more than painting Christmas trees, candy canes and snowflakes on your face?
The trend seems to have originated from makeup artists and YouTubers Nicol Concilio and makeupby_alo and their online videos show that there’s method behind the madness of drawing Christmas designs on your face with bronzer and concealer.

Looking at the end results, it’s pretty clear that there’s a lot more to this whole contouring thing than we thought. Basically it doesn’t really matter what shapes you paint on your nose and cheeks — if you have the blending action down pat you’ll look amazing.
Are you brave enough to leave your Christmas contouring face unblended? It’s certainly guaranteed to turn heads at your office party…
