Ah, the crop top. The piece of clothing that has women divided into two camps – those who brave them, and those who don’t. Gigi, Kendall, Kylie, Rosie, and Beyoncé have all been spotted wearing cut-off tops and flaunting taut tummies, both on the red carpet and en route to the gym. But if the thought of baring your midriff makes you want to run for the hills and forever stay in big, oversized shirts, then this amazing and easy makeup tip from the ‘Contour Queen’ herself, Huda Kattan, might just change your mind.
Makeup isn’t just amazing at defining, shaping, and slimming your face; it also works wonders on all parts of the body, especially the stomach. Posting a quick video on her Instagram page, Kattan revealed how a touch of bronzer can make all the difference when it comes to enhancing or creating abs.
Simply take your bronzer of choice (Huda uses a bronzing stick and Benefit’s ‘Hoola’), ensuring it’s matte so there are no sparkles or glitter to give away your secret, and use it to “draw” definition lines where they would naturally be (or follow existing ones to make them appear stronger). Then take a makeup brush and use it to blend the lines into your skin, making them look as natural as possible. Et voilà – you’ll have fab abs in a flash.
