Forget Contouring; Try Strobbing

안녕하세요, readers!

Everyone knows the wonders of facial contouring. It can really change the way your face looks.

Contouring can make your face look slimmer, eyes bigger & deeper, nose narrower… Basically the possibilities are limitless.

A perfectly chiselled face is suddenly made achievable.

However here comes a new makeup method that makes contouring so yesterday. We know this as ‘strobbing’.

You might not find this word in the dictionary just yet… But we assure you, it’s legit. ;)

Unlike contouring which makes use of a bronzer and a highlighter…

Strobbing only requires the highlighter.

Contouring = Bronzer + Highlighter
Strobbing = Highlighter

This makeup method is totally raved because it captures light on the face that gives off a super radiant glow, making you look younger and healthier!

Unlike contouring, you won’t look like you’re trying too hard. It is the must-have method to use to achieve the ‘natural beauty’ look. Without the dark hues of a bronzer, your face will appear even more radiant.

By using the highlighter, you place some product on areas where you want to achieve volume and bring attention to!

You can use a myriad of highlighter products, but here are some favourites!

Here’s a standard guide to help you out. :)

Here’s the whole rationale behind highlighting those specific points in the guide -

Above & Below Eyebrow Arch: This is to make your eyebrows seem higher. This will help in giving proportion to your face.

Inner Eyes: Just between your eyes and your nose bridge; this area is super important in giving you a more ‘awake’ appearance by making your eyes look larger.

Outer Bottom of Eyes: Like a complement to the ‘Inner Eyes’, this step also helps in enlarging your eyes in giving you a rather innocent and lively look!

Nose Bridge: Well, this one is pretty well-known. It is great for giving the illusion of a higher, sharper and narrower nose! Your nose is the center of your face, so it has to look impeccable.

Cupid Bow: By highlighting this part, you will make your lips look like it’s pouting and more defined - very sexy.

Chin: This helps you elongate your face and give the illusion of a sharper face!

Cheekbones to Outer Eye: This final step is often missed out by many, but it actually creates a very subtle yet noticeable difference. It will make your cheekbones appear higher and give you an overall more chiselled-looking face.

So store away your bronzer and be extra loving to your highlighter!

Get ready to look stunningly fresh and radiant with strobbing!
