Easy Non-Touring With Rodial

Oh, I haven’t done makeup tutorials for a while now, but I think this quick non-touring lesson might be interesting for you.

First, there was contouring (and millions of ways of how to do it), then came the light-trapping strobbing. Now? There’s non-touring, which is essentially a marriage between the two that provides a glowy sculpt to the face. I believe this is more daylight-friendly look.

A month ago I received some amazing Rodial products, and to be honest, I never tried that brand’s make-up before, but now I am a massive fan because their cosmetic products are truly phenomenal (just like their skincare line). I believe the set of products that I will be using today is perfect to create this glowing daytime look without putting too many products on your skin. All of these products are highly pigmented and long-lasting, plus they come in the luxurious packaging, which is definitely a pleasant bonus.

Before I started shooting this lesson, I applied my all-time favourite primer by Smashbox and Chanel foundation (shade 30B) to achieve an even tone.

10. This is by far my most favourite lip liner. My recent crush was 'Velvet Teddy' by Mac, but after I tried Pink Espresso by Rodial I couldn't use Velvet Teddy anymore. The formula of this lip liner is much more creamier, you can feel it when you apply it on your lips - the liner slides smoothly, but after a couple of minutes it gets super matte and extremely long-lasting. It was surprising for me that it doesn't dry out the lips even though it's really difficult to remove it at the end of the day.
