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.

Clean makeup brushes are essential for a flawless application and cleaning them helps prolong the lives of your favorite go-to beauty tools. Not only can your makeup begin to apply unevenly, dirty brushes are also wasting product. As for it’s effects on your skin, not cleaning your makeup brushes regularly can cause bacteria, which can then lead to blemishes and breakouts.
If you use your makeup brushes regularly, they should be washed once a week. Although this seems like a daunting chore, it is made easier by our new H&H Science Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner. With this proper cleaning, your brushes are guaranteed to last longer than ever before, while giving your skin an even and flawless look.
Step 1: Wet your brush’s bristles under a running faucet with lukewarm water
Step 2: Use a gentle soap and lather on your makeup brush
One thing that I love to do is watch makeup videos because its one thing to have all the products, but its another thing to be able to put them on correctly. I also love to see the different variations in eye and lip looks there can be.
