BN Beauty: Trend Alert – Breast Highlighting & Contouring!



Breast Contouring - Bellanaija - June2014

Should men now walk around with makeup removers?

The art of highlighting and contouring has gone..well..a little overboard. With women and men still debating the makeup technique and it’s overuse, highlighting and contouring is now being used for the breasts.

Like with most beauty techniques, this started from the runway and slowly made its way to the dressing tables of the average woman. Now, a growing crop of women are using this technique on a daily basis, including it in their daily makeup routine to give the impression of a fuller and larger cleavage.

There are a lot of beauty trends that spark the debates on beauty like the Natural Vs. Weave, Makeup Vs. Makeup Free and of course using photoshop to enhance photos.

We just have to ask what you think? Is this trend digging up issues women have with confidence and self acceptance? Should this be tagged as ‘false advertising’? Is highlighting & contouring getting out of hand?

    Lmao! The way that I see it, this is still much safer and cost effective than the surgical approach, so they should carry on!! But mannnn!! That’s what miracle bras from Victoria secret are for. All this one na long tins.

    Nah! Big NO to this! Facial make-up is too much work already. My bras will do just fine. Oh! And the Bust gel from Clarins does wonders too.

    Bellanaija, you guys keep encouraging sexism. What is “Should men walk around with makeup remover?” You’re already assuming women beautify themselves for men, and encouraging men to think this is true. Then the rude, insulting comments towards women begin. I wonder when you guys will have a more feminist approach to things because misogyny still reigns supreme on this site!

      Tell me about it. But then I remember Linda Ikeji’s blog and I could almost give them a pass. Almost.

      My thoughts exactly Jo. The writer probably doesn’t know what context to use that because it just doesn’t make sense here.
