Contouring Is Dead! Tantour Is The Next Big Thing

Beauty News

Huda Beauty Tantour

I’m so happy to finally share with you guys our latest complexion product that we’ve been working on forever, Tantour! Contour can be so extreme, but bronzing can be too natural, and it’s been my dream to develop something between the two for so long.

The Formula

I always felt that contouring shades could be a bit too grey or muddy and bronzers tend to feel too orange. So, my team and I worked on combining a balance of shadow and warmth for a luminous, matte glow that’s never dull. We made a formula that’s like a mix between a mousse and a cream: The result is Tantour, a luxurious cream-to-powder contour and bronzer cream designed to help you achieve effortless, naturally-sculpted features! If you can’t tone it, tan it!

The deeply pigmented formula can take you from a natural bronzed look to a dramatic contour as you layer and build. I love that it’s really pigmented but also blends SO easily. If you just want a very natural look, you only need to use a small amount, but for more drama, you can build it up or try a deeper shade.

With summer coming up, we knew we had to ‘Dubai-proof’ this formula, so we made it extra long-lasting (up to 12 hours!) and it’s both water-resistant and sweatproof.

The Shades

We created five shades to ensure every skin tone has a perfect match, and depending on how dramatic you want to be, you can play with different shades to get the result you want.

Fair: A neutral honey shade for fair to light complexions.
Light: A soft caramel shade ideal for light to medium complexions.
Medium: A neutral mocha shade that looks gorgeous on medium and tan complexions.
Tan: A deep cocoa shade perfect for deep tan to rich complexion.
Rich: A deep mahogany shade for rich to ultra-rich complexions.

The Brush

To make Tantouring super seamless, we created the Huda Beauty Sculpt & Shade Brush. At one end is a very small, dense brush that’s perfect for applying Tantour exactly where you want it, and at the other end is a large, soft brush so you can easily blend it out.

How to Tantour: 

STEP 1: Using the smaller side of the Huda Beauty Sculpt & Shade brush, apply Tantour in dots along the contours of each side of the face: cheekbones, forehead, and jawline.

STEP 2: With the fluffy side of the brush or using a beauty sponge, blend well for an all-over healthy finish. You can build to desired intensity.

My tip: Use the brush in circular, upward motions for a flawless finish!

Our Tantour Contour & Bronzer Cream, $30 (USD) and the Sculpt & Shade Brush, $28 (USD), will launch online on May 8th and in-store on May 17th.
