Highlighting 101 … Strobe Away

Strobing is a technique that only uses light to enhance your face, no bronzer or dark powders involved here. Basically, you’re taking all of your usual contouring steps, but just ditching the part where you carve out your features and heading straight for the highlighter stick. This approach to makeup is supposed to mimic what it’s like to be under bright, flattering lights using illuminating products.

Use highlighter to enhance where light would naturally hit your face, which for most of us is across the temples, cheekbones, and bridge of your nose. If you’re afraid of looking oily, avoid putting any highlighter on your forehead. If you’re lighter skinned, opt for champagne colors, while darker skin tones will look stunning.

Fuse your skincare and makeup together as much possible for a dewy, wet-shine finish. For example:

1) if you use concealer add moisturizer to it.

2) Add shine to the areas of your face that catch light naturally, like your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or temples.

Some Illuminating Products:- M.A.C Strobe Cream (Cheat: for the lazy girls out there, it does the strobing for you, by just applying the cream itself). Benefit Cosmetics: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl, also from Benefit: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. ,  Charlotte Tilbury’s Highlighter Wand and NYX cosmetics Illuminating Stick.
