Strobing: Soak Up the Spotlight!

Have you heard of strobing yet? The makeup world is raving! Seriously, you wouldn't think highlighting areas of your face could make such a difference! Contouring, also a popular trend, is all about chiseling out your features and highlighting the high points of your face to give it a flawless finish. Strobing nixes the contour powders and bronzers and focuses on that glowy sheen that catches the light just right — giving you a healthy, vibrant glimmer! When you aren't feeling a full face of makeup, apply your favorite highlighter (check out some of our favorites!) on the top of your cheekbones, the inner corners of your eyes, under the arch of your brow, your cupid's bow and maybe even on the tip and bridge of your nose to add dimension to your features. Since highlighters catch the light, strobing draws your eyes to the subtle, barely there shimmer. Whenever you want to play up a feature, or just look like a glowy goddess, whip out the highlighter and get to strobing!
