If there's one beauty trend that go won't away, it's contouring. In fact, every time we think we've seen the back of it, it grows more heads in the form of different incarnations: strobing, clown contouring etc. Now, the lastest buzzword to know is 'tantouring' - aka, contouring semi-permanently with self-tanner.

We can see the appeal - imagine waking up not only with a healthy glow, but also with perfectly sculpted cheekbones and leaner-looking limbs? We'll have some of that, please.

We caught up with tanning guru, James Read (whose Sleep Mask Tan, £35.00, is our go-to tan of choice) backstage at Holly Fulton's London Fashion Week show where he gave each model a good tan-touring using his new Tantour Sculpting Duo (£30.00).

The duo has a contour shade with a touch a self tan that goes on bronze, and deepens gradually over four hours, and a wash-off highlighting shade that leaves a pearlescent finish.

You'll have to wait until March 2016 to get your hands on the product, but until then, check out the exclusive tutorial video and learn how to get the look at home...
