Ok, so for Summer 2015 a new movement emerged out of Pinterest and Instagram waving goodbye to contouring (which we all love but impractical for the season’s heat) and saying hello to strobing! Well, basically strobing is extreme highlighting and cuts the products used in contouring by half, because all you need is just need two items: a highlighter and blush! Strobing is like contouring but basically you highlight on places you usually contour which are the places naturally hit by light. The result is a dewy, bright and somewhat has a touch of luminescence in it. You highlight the
• middle of forehead
• tip of nose
• cupid's bow
• chin
• highest point of cheekbones
• underneath of contour
• lid
• inner corners
• brow bone

This is not recommended for people who already has oily skin, because it make your skin even more oiler and wider. The key here is luminous and glowing skin so if you want to do this trend prep up your face with Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator Serum and don this overnight. Highlight the said parts of your face mentioned above by using a highlighter like Yves Saint Laurent Radiant Touch or if you want, you can opt to layer it with an illuminator like NARS Illuminator for extra sheen. Add color to your face with a blush such as Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Powder Blush and if you really can’t live without sculpting try contouring using blush by adding a smudge on your temples, browbones and cheekbones. And finally finish of the look with a spritz of Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Perfecting Water Moisture Mist to set it all in.


Alright, so for this one don’t worry no actual baking will be involve but will actually utilizing your skin’s natural body heat. Baking actually removes fine lines, creases, wrinkles, pores and gives your make up a flawless matte finish. It’s actually a method used by drag queens to effectively set in their makeup and just recently Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic just revealed to Glamour the technique and everyone went crazy and dived in the whole thing. To bake one’s face go with your usual foundation ritual and apply concealer like Clinique Airbrush Concealer under your eyes, your chin and temples. Blend it well and then set in a heavy layer of loose powder such as Lancome Poudre Majeur Excellence Micro Aerated Loose Powder on the areas where you applied concealer and just let it sit there or “bake” or “cook” for 10 minutes. What’s actually happening is it’s using your face’s heat to melt the concealer and filling in any line, wrinkle and crevices. After that, sweep using a blush brush or a fan brush to remove excess powder. It’s really that simple yet the effects are stunning.

Lip Contouring and Clown Contouring

Yes, contouring may be over extending its stay but different versions of it have popped out of nowhere. Specifically clown contouring which was all over Instagram for the last two weeks, but we’ll squeeze these two as they share the same technique but different aesthetics. If you want to have explosive lips like Angeline Jolie or Kylie Jenner lip contouring might be the answer. This is very easy; just dab your lips first with liquid foundation like Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation SPF 19 so the moisture of the lips retains. Then trace your lips with a lip liner for emphasis, it’s basically a play with illusion and shadow for a more natural look but you have to make sure your lip liner is freshly sharpened. Pout your lips and then put a dark concealer on the lines that you see, and then put a light colored concealer in between the lines and blend everything then top it off with lip gloss to make it look natural.

And for the clown contouring there nothing really like shocking about it except you really like paint art on your face and blend it anyway, it pretty much like contouring but more artsy and more layering, just go with how you normally contour. But the colors you see that make it clown like are actually correctors, like dark circle correctors, skin correctors and light correctors that come in different colors. If you want to try this technique better have your essential in tow with this contouring starter kit that has everything you need to sculpt that face.
