Beauty Junkies Are Colour Contouring To Challenge The Beauty Norms

If you thought contouring was hard, think again. ICYMI there’s a new challenge on Instagram – #ColourContourChallenge! Oh yeah, forget about contouring with brown, creamy shades when you can do it with colours.

The challenged created by @Missmixed aka Makeup By Celia is all about you embracing yourself using colours. She explains on her Instagram, the unexpected colours represents the diversity in the beauty industry! Honestly, it’s art. PERIOD.

🔥 #ColorContourChallenge 🔥 – 🚨 I challenge YOU to post a look doing the #colorcontourchallenge and share what inclusivity in makeup means to you!🚨 – 🤩🔥 TAG AN MUA YOU THINK WOULD KICK ASS AT THIS CHALLENGE! 🤩🔥 – I will be sharing EVERYONE who joins me in doing the challenge and talking about what inclusivity in beauty means to you to my 36K followers! PLUS, I will be giving away 🎁 prizes 🎁 this time around to those who join in the conversation, so be sure to follow @missmixed for updates! – One year ago I started this challenge because I was frustrated with the lack of diversity and shade representation by brands in the beauty community. 🤬 since then, over 2K people have joined the challenge and shared their opinion on the lack of diversity in beauty. Today, exactly one year later, I want to make it even BIGGER. I want to include EVERYONE; regardless of sex, gender identity, race – ANYTHING, we all deserve a place in the beauty community. So, I invite you to join me in this open letter to the beauty world, by doing your contour with an unconventional colour (or multiple colors!) along with the message of what true inclusivity in beauty looks like to you! 🤗🤗♥️♥️
