A Quick Guide To Strobing


How To Strobe



Last week I did a little post on how to contour (here.) But, what if you don't want to contour? It's a little bit scary and not everyone feels comfortable adding shadows to their face for fear of looking muddy. So, today I bring you: Strobing! Strobing is pretty much the opposite of contouring, where instead of adding shadow to the face, you're adding light. Think of the make up images you've seen lately, I'm pretty sure you'll agree that it's been all about the dewy, light reflecting skin. There's something about that glow that screams youth, so here is a guide to get the look!

How To Strobe

Starting off with the things to consider, what kind of product do you want to use? I do prefer a cream for this, but I have pretty normal skin and can understand why someone with oily skin would want something with less oil content. As long as the product has a shimmer and not actual glitter particles, you should be fine.

How To Strobe

The main places to add product too are the cheekbones, down the centre of the nose, the cupids bow, chin, the inner corner of the eyes and the brow bone. You can also add highlight to the top of the brow, but I did find that a little weird. 

Personally I don't feel that comfortable with just strobing, as you can see I added a little blusher in the second photo and I would definitely continue to contour! 

Have you tried strobing yet? What product do you use?

  4. At first I thought this was another silly fad but I actually love the radiant, glowing look it gives. It looks fab on you! I agree that it does need a tad of blush or bronzer to go with it xx Sophie / www.prettyandpolished.co.uk

    1. After I did this post, I started putting highlighter on the inner corner of my eyes a lot more! Yes, I really need blusher at least, I just feel a bit ghostly without it!
