Instagram is lit with all kinds of makeup looks. One look or rather technique that's got our attention is the brightly coloured inner corners of the eyes. Yes, we can see it everywhere—fabulous eye makeup emphasized with a pop of colour on the inner corners.
This technique has a name—it 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 dont be surprised if you see people with popping inner corners around you!
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 glow-y 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 that fresh, natural-looking glow. It's way easier to master and a lot lighter on the skin.
Inner eye strobing 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 the eye look more awake. From shimmery highlighters in all possible hues to bold and bright shadows, people have gotten innovative with eye strobing, giving it a fun spin.
