GLAMOUR Tries: We tried NikkieTutorials’ chin contouring hack and the results were surprising

There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.

Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.

Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from FaceGym’s Faceshot Electrical Microneedling Device (the skin tool of dreams) to Isle Of Paradise’s Pro-Glow Spray Tan Mister and Larry King Hair Care’s Flyaway With Me Kit. These are the products every influencer/Gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.

Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. 

This week on GLAMOUR Tries our Social Media Director, Chloe Laws, tested the NikkiTutorials’ chin contouring hack which everyone on the internet is going wild for. 

Nikkie shared a video to her Instagram earlier in the week which saw her contour not just below the chin, but across the bottom of the cheek, too – before highlighting with loose setting powder and blending away. “The jaw is looking RIGHT! I can eat more burgers now…” Nikki exclaims in her reel.

To recreate the look, Chloe used two products: 1) the REFY Cream Bronzer – which you can pick up from Selfridges for £18 – and BareMinerals’ Original Powder foundation. An OG in any makeup bag and available from Boots (with SPF, no less) for £29.

“NikkieTutorials loved it and I love her, so I’m going to give it a go. Basically, it’s just two thick strips of contour and then some powder of the top,” Chloe said.
