Listen up you makeup lovers, just like with fashion one trend is out and the next is in. In this case contouring is no long the “thing” to make your face stand out. It’s all about strobing. Strobing gives your face a natural glow, and dewy appearance. The products are intricately used to brighten the higher features of your face versus carving them out as you would with contouring. This way even though summer is ending you can keep that healthy vitamin D glow year round. Here is how to achieve the look!
This technique gives you a polished look that gives you a natural radiance. This means less glitter, but more glow. You should avoid products that are full of glitter, and look for products that illuminate.
It is important to pick he correct highlighter for your complexion. Many highlighters come in a white or pearlescent, try a colored highlighter. Fairer skin could use a pink highlight, and medium to dark skin can use a coral or gold toned highlight. If you have oily skin like myself, try using a powdered highlighter, if you have drier skin, apply a cream.
Where To Apply
Focus on the high points of the face where the sun shines naturally. There are seven facial features you specifically want to focus on: The bridge of your nose, center of the forehead, brow bones, inner corner of the eyes, cheekbones, tip of the the chin, and cupids bow.
A Little Goes A Long Way
You don’t need much. You are going for the luminescent look, not the overly shiny oily or sparkly one. Remember you can start with just a small amount and build upon it as you feel necessary.
