Contouring has been around a while now and no matter how much we say we hate it, we all love it. But that does not change the fact that contouring does require a little bit of practice and a lot of time to perfect the look.
So, there’s a new makeup trend that many are replacing contouring with. It’s called ‘Strobing’.
And unlike contouring, this does not require a lot of your time or products.
Contouring results in giving the face a chiseled effect by using a mixture of dark and light shades.
However, for strobing, all you need to do is ‘highlight’ to naturally brighten up the face.
Simply highlight the parts of your face where the natural light hits directly, like the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the chin.
For a flawless base, apply foundation or your favorite BB Cream. Then slap on some sheer highlighter on your most attractive features. No contouring required.
To make the look more noticeable and striking, apply highlighter to the brow bone, the inner corner of your eyes and the tip of the nose too.
This new trend really brightens up the face and gives a natural dewy look if done properly.
