Strobing? The New Contouring??
Hey Beauties!
We have all been hearing about the words “strobing” lately and a lot us of dont really know what is it and how do to it, heck a lot of us havent even mastered contouring yet.
So to start out simply Strobing really is just highlighting in specific parts of the face to give a really defused “strobe” look hence the name. Another thing we have to talk about its not new its been around for a long time ive been doing it for years mainly its used when Drag Queens do their makeup they let powders sit under their eyes to give the idea of light as it shapes the face.

As you can see Drag Queen, Manila Luzon who is “cooking” a term used when the product sits under the eyes so that it has a chance to better work into the skin without creasing or caking up after its left on the skin for about 15-30 minutes its all blended in all the hard lines are defused and your left with a really gorgeous contoured and glowy face. I also feel like its not the “New Contouring” as contouring is about creating depth and shadow to the face and strobing is basically the opposite so if anything its the new highlighting rather than the new contouring

You can use different products to create this look always try go for cream type products then you can go over them with more shimmery powders the idea is not to use any matte type products as that kind of cancels out the effect.
I love using products like MAC Strobe Cream, Illamasqua Gleam, Benefit Highbeam and Sunbeam, NARS Copacabana Multiple
You will want to place these products under the eyes extending out then under the browbone, under the chin, on the forehead, top of the lip on the cupids bow and down the nose.
