If you follow the latest beauty trends then, chances are, you've already heard about strobing. Stars, beauty bloggers and Youtubers alike swear by this highlighting technique, which provides a more natural sculpting effect than contouring while illuminating the face thanks to its shimmery finish.
"Strobing", which gets its name from stroboscopic light, is used to give the illusion of a natural glow. Unlike contouring, which focuses on "pushing back" the features by making them appear more set in, strobing highlights the facial features and draws them "outward." This is why it should be applied to the areas of your face that naturally catch light: the cheekbones, chin, forehead, bridge of the nose and Cupid's bow.
Get the Look
To get the look, you can rely on either a powder or cream formula. After applying your foundation and blush, apply the highlighter in the areas suggested earlier. If it's a cream formula you chose, use your finger to tap it into the skin and blend out the edges. If it's powder, apply it with a fan brush for a light touch.
Rose, cream, gold, bronze, and pearl... there are so many different shades to choose from, you're guaranteed to find the right one to suit your complexion. Finish your look with a veil of setting spray and you're all set!
