Natasha Patel , 23 Nov 2016

If tanning and conturing had a baby, that’s exactly what a tantour would be! Yes, tantour is officially a word—and we’re breaking it down for you.

What is it?

Tantouring is the new, semi-permanent way to achieve contour by using a self tanner. While contouring lets you obtain a flawlessly, chiseled land sculpted look, it’s duration is limited. That’s when some beauty geniuses of the world discovered that using a contouring technique—involving a self-tanner, one can semi-permanently bring dimension to the face!

Such a win, right?

How to get the look?

  1. Use a contour brush and apply tiny amounts of the tanning solution to the places where you’d normally draw out the contour lines.
  2. Use a beauty blender or a brush to blend the lines well.
  3. If the tan doesn’t appear instantly wait for a good  two or three hours before re applying the tanner.
