Once you've finished contouring your complexion, it's time to take on strobing - a technique that aims to illuminate the prominent parts of your face that would naturally catch light. Apply a few drops of the liquid formula into your finger tips, then gently rub it into the high points of your cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin, and centre of your forehead.
