    The Latest In Contouring Will Make You Feel Even Worse About Your Makeup Skills

    Here's how to get ready if you have four hours every morning.

    First, some context: Contouring and highlighting, a makeup technique used by drag queens, blew up when Kim Kardashian started using it to fake a better bone structure.

    And suddenly everyone wanted to do it.

    Then came strobing, a life-hack version of contouring which just requires you to "find your light".

    All of which is great, except:

    And now, to make you feel EVEN MORE inadequate, please put your hands together for the henna contour.

    Pakistani makeup and henna artist Sahur Saleim was inspired by the #ClownContour trend and decided to present her own interpretation.

    Which is absolutely gorgeous and flawless.

    Unlike clown contouring, which uses different colours for different effects, this works on the same principles as contouring and highlighting except the process is prettier.

    SO PRETTY.
