Instagram is lit with all kinds of makeup looks. One look or rather technique that's very popular these days are brightly coloured inner corners of the eyes. This trend is being seen everywhere- runways, award shows and even on red carpets. Wondering what this is? We're here to solve all your queries.
This technique is called inner eye strobing. Makeup artists have been using highlighter on the inner corners for quite some time. The trick makes the eyes look brighter and adds an oomph. It is also super easy to do, so even people with little makeup experience can join in!
Strobing is already popular (read more about it here). It’s a makeup technique where highlighter is used in layers on the face for a glowy complexion. Unlike contouring, which targets the low points of the face making it appear more shadowed, strobing brightens and illuminates the high points of the face for a fresh, natural-looking glow.
Taking the trend a step further comes inner eye strobing which involves using a shimmery highlighter or a bright eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eye. This enhances eye makeup by adding a pop of colour and making one more awake. From shimmery highlighters in all possible hues to bold and bright shadows, people have given this trend their own fun spin.
