If you’ve been religiously following Huda Kattan on Instagram, you would know how big lip strobing is today. What is it, you ask? Well ladies, just how you would highlight your cheekbones, décolleté and brow bone, the same technique would apply to your lips as well! The aim is to not only draw attention to your pout but to also give it a fuller appearance. Here’s how to nail this make-up trend like a pro!
Beauty Products You Need
1. Lipstick (Shade of your choice)
2. Lip liner (Shade of your choice)
3. Shimmer eyeshadow or highlighter
4. Cotton swabs
5. Lip gloss
To create the illusion of a fuller lip, you should befriend the lip liner. It helps define uneven lips and creates the ideal lip shape. Choose a lip liner that a shade lighter than your lipstick. That way, it will make your lip colour pop.

When it comes to picking a lipstick for this beauty experiment, feel free to pick any shade of your choice. Keep in mind that the shade must be a tad bit lighter than your lip liner. Once you’ve applied your lipstick, you’re ready to move to the next step!
POPxo Recommends: M.A.C Liptensity Lipstick - Smoked Almond (Rs 1,850)
For this step, you have a choice to pick between using a highlighter or an eyeshadow. Whichever you choose, make sure to apply a small amount of the product over the middle part of your lower lip.
POPxo Recommends: Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighter - Radiant Lights (Rs 650)
Using a cotton swab, gently blend the product in an outward direction towards the edges. Doing this will ensure that your lips get a three-dimensional finish.

For finishing touches, use a lip gloss to fill in your lips. If gloss or shimmer isn’t your cup of tea, you could play around with a matte nude eyeshadow or apply a bit of concealer. Get creative, experiment and flaunt that pout with style! Good luck.
