Beauty Glossary: Non-tour

Non-tour /nohn·toor/

Beauty Glossary: Draping

Draping /drAy·ping/

A makeup technique popularized in the 80s by the late makeup artist, Way Bandy, in which you emphasize cheekbones using a color blush to contour in lieu of the usual contour and highlight duo. The name refers to bringing out the natural ‘drape’ (or natural U-shape) of your cheeks. The effect is more chiseled and structured-looking cheekbones using a pop color that is extremely well-blended. Products like Marc Jacobs Air Blush Soft Glow Duo uses two complementary cheek colors to achieve the draping effect.

(Not to be confused with Drake-ing, i.e. reminiscing about a past relationship)

To apply foundation using a dotting motion which helps you get a more airbrushed, diffused finish. A stippling brush usually has a dense base and feathery, lighter tips that can be used to dip into your foundation then lightly dot on face in quick motions. Afterwards, light circular motions are used to diffuse foundation out. This helps give adequate coverage with the least amount of makeup.

Known side effects: Wanting to be referred to as a makeup “artiste.”

Bae-trayal /bay·tray·al/

When a friend, sibling, or loved-one snaps you without the use of a filter or at a bad angle; a violation of trust. A major offense especially when not wearing any makeup.
