What is Strobing?

Just when you had mastered contouring another makeup trend comes along to confuse us all! If you haven’t come across this makeup technique then you are probably wondering what is strobing exactly?

Strobing is basically highlighting on a whole other level. This look will give your skin a more youthful, dewy, radiant appearance.

There are a lot of different highlighters out there but make sure to pick the right one for your skin tone!

For fair to medium skin tone choose a light pink to champagne coloured highlighter.

For medium to dark skin tone choose a neutral peach shade highlighter.

For darker skin tones choose a gold coloured highlighter.

                                    Here are a few of my favourite highlighters

                                                      Strobe Cream by Mac

Here are a few tips to help you get started:

First apply a good hydrating moisturizer to your skin. Next apply a lightweight foundation to your skin. Apply a concealer and then a little pressed powder.

Make sure to only use highlighter where the sun naturally hits the face, along the temples, on the cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose, just below the brow bone, at the corner of the eyes and above the cupids bow.

Be careful not to be too heavy handed with the highlighter remember you don’t want to over do it!
