Goodbye Contouring Hello Strobing
Even though countouring has been around for many years Kim Kardashian secured its recent rise in popularity. However, we can tell you something bigger and better is set to take over from contouring. Let us introduce you to Strobing.
So ... What is Strobing?
Basically, its a fun term for highlighting. Forget everything you've learnt about countouring, extra highlighlighting will give you a dewy, shimmery, more youthful glow.
Here's our step-by-step guide to Stobing so you can have a go yourselves.
Wash your face twice and apply a nourishing mask
Use a hydrating toner and moisturiser to prime your skin
Then start with an illuminating base or CC cream for a dewy effect
Hide any blemishes by blending concealer with moisturiser
Using a highlighting stick, cream or balm, dab the areas of your face that light naturally hits
Focus on tops of cheekbones, forehead, centre of the nose, browbone and Cupid's bow of the lip
Pat onto inner corner of the eyes for extra twinkle
Set your make-up with a fine powder
BB creams like Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue are also perfect for achieving flawless, dewy skin.
Avoid heavy matte textures with this look, as with contouring, instead it's all about moisture.
Avoid sparkle and go for shimmer.
