Most women are now talking about strobing – the highlight makeup technique expected to replace the familiar contouring style.
Contouring is a very popular makeup technique used by makeup artists to create light-dark areas on the face, making it angular and slimmer. Plenty of famous stars, especially Kim Kardashian were the ones who spread of this trend widely in 2014 – 2015.
Millions of contouring makeup tutorial clips on youtube were made, from easy to difficult. However, not any girl can master this makeup style, and it can very easily become a disaster.
Strobing is considered a simpler version of contouring. Instead of combining light-dark arrays, strobing makeup just focuses on highlights – the bright areas on the face to look more natural in a shorter time.
Specifically, the areas you need to highlight is the T, the corners of the eyes, philtrum, cheekbones and brow bone. When you lighten up those areas, other parts will naturally become darker, creating depth to the face.
Moreover, strobing helps the overall face look bright and natural – just like the beauty trend in recent years. For young girls, strobing is very suitable way of makeup because it does not add extra "ages" like contouring.
