Strobe It Up! | Eyeshadow Strobing Simplified!
Strobing is the one beauty trend that became the talk of the town in 2016 and is definitely here to stay! Let’s make it simple for all of you. What is strobing? Strobing is basically highlighting the high points of your face creating a natural yet luminous look. When it comes to eyes, the centre of you eyelid is where light catches naturally, so eyeshadow strobing focuses on making your lid look luminous while darker colours are applied in the corners for depth. You can call it a smokey eye with a twist!
While drama in real life can sure be a bit too much to handle, drama in your makeup can never go wrong and this look gives you just that! Opt for nude lips and a softer contour to draw attention to the eyes. A bold lip will be distracting and if you want your eyes to do all the talking, give your red lipstick some rest! So, get ready to slay the night out because the disco ball isn’t the only thing that’s going to be shining in the club! This look is also ideal for festivities like weddings, anniversary parties etc!
The number one plus of this look is that black eyeshadow goes with anything and everything, so feel free to sport anything from a sequinned party top to a muted silk saree!
Here are a few products that you can use to create this look -
Gel liners are the gods of the eyeliner world, our favourites being the L’oreal Paris super liner gel intense in the shades - chic brown and profound black. For your lower lash line, use the Maybelline colossal kajal. For the lid, use any shimmer shadow in gold for a luminous effect. Make sure its highly pigmented. We recommend the Nyx dream catcher palette in the shade - golden horizons or the Maybelline nudes palette. Go for a matte or a creamy nude lip! The perfect shade would be retro by Mac!
