Strobing is a popular makeup technique used to create a radiant and glowing complexion. The goal of strobing is to highlight the high points of the face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow, by using light-reflecting products to give the appearance of a natural glow. This technique is especially effective for those with dry or mature skin, as it adds a dewy finish without emphasizing texture.
How to strobe?
Cream or liquid formulas work best for this technique, as they blend seamlessly into the skin and give a natural-looking finish. Start by applying your foundation as usual, then apply the highlighter to the areas you want to emphasize, using your fingers or a brush. Blend the product well to create a soft, diffused look. When choosing a highlighter, consider the undertones of your skin. If you have warm undertones, opt for a golden or peachy highlighter, while those with cool undertones should choose a pink or silver-toned highlighter. For those with neutral undertones, a champagne or rose gold highlighter will work well.
Strobing can be combined with other makeup techniques, such as contouring or blush, to create a full makeup look. Just be sure to blend everything together well to avoid any harsh lines or uneven application. One important thing to keep in mind when using this technique is to avoid using too much product, as it can create a shiny or oily-looking finish. Start with a small amount of product and build up gradually until you achieve the desired effect. Strobing is a great way to add a healthy glow to your complexion and enhance your natural features.
