Strobing Is The New Contouring: How To Perfect The Look

What is strobing?

Strobing is essentially the application of a shimmery highlighter on the high planes of the face, where light would naturally bounce off. Unlike the concealer-bronzer-contour makeup techniques that look great in photos, but unnatural and heavy in daylight, strobing works beautifully in real life because light is always catching and reflecting off your skin. It is a much easier technique to learn and the highlighter simply amps up the reflective glow. 

How to Strobe:

Strobing should be the final step in your makeup routine. It goes on top of all the other products you are wearing, such as foundation, blush, etc.

Before you strobe, it’s really important to “mattify” the areas you don’t want emphasized, such as your forehead, chin and the tip of your nose. Otherwise, your whole face will have a greasy appearance. You will want to do this before you apply your foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream. You can also use it over foundation in order to further mattify certain areas after makeup application. My favorite oil-absorber is our H&H Science Ultimatte Finish Powder.
