“Strobing”-Is it really that easy??

Okay so I just read this article yesterday about how easy your life can be now since strobing is discovered.

While contouring seemed to be very heavy with all those different shades of foundation/contour kit, then setting it with two shades of setting/pressed/loose powder , one would end up thinking how much one can put make up on the face. While we watch the beautiful YouTubers show us the different techniques of contouring, we end up looking like we just got sunburn or mistakenly pressed iron on our face instead of clothes. Many of us gave up on the idea of contouring.

So as a rescue to all those who who couldn’t befriend contouring, the experts introduces us to Strobing. In easy words , Highlighting.

Apparently, we don’t need to contour our face, instead, just highlight the face parts where lights hit directly(if you remember the contouring process, highlighting is also a part of it), basically Strobing is “half” of the contour process. :/

Parts that need highlighting: Centre of forehead, tip of nose, browbones, chin, upper cheeks or wherever you want. LOL (as everyone has different ideas on this)

So now, we will expect ladies to wonder :

1. Which products are to be used for Strobing.

2. Which highlighter to get.

3. How much is too much in terms of application.

4. Right shade .

5. From where till where should it be applied.

6. Won’t it be too dewy.

7. Is there a matte highlighter. If so, then would it give the “glow”effect?

8. Won’t one look like a disco light after applying it.

and many many many more questions.

So , is the contouring problem really solved? Is Strobing really easy?

What’s your take on it?

P.S I’ve been already doing this since couple of years, using highlighters and illuminators and avoid contouringΒ  as much as possible except for special occasions. ❀ I just shared with you all, my favorite illuminator. πŸ™‚

What’s yours?

Thank You for reading everyone!

      1. You need a lip primer! I was having the exact same issue with my Mac Retro Matte, but I bought NYX’s lip primer, and woof what a difference.

    1. There are highlighters out there that aren’t too shimmer. But what’s a highlighter with no shimmer.πŸ˜•πŸ˜ for e.g this nyx illuminator, you need not even a drop,but half a drop and you’re good to go. But if you want really light shimmers then go for powder highlighters I guess.
