For some this technique could either work in your favor if you know what you are doing or it could potentially be a complete fail. The good thing is you can now forget about contouring and forcus on the new trend “Strobing” the bad thing is, you now have a bunch of high priced makeup items that are 2-3 shades darker than your skin and you know you will never be that dark.
Strobing focuses primarily on highlighting the high points of the face that the light naturally hits. Some high points to mention would be the cheek bones, cupids bow, temples, centre of the nose, the chin as well as the forehead. Leaving your skin looking luminous and refreshed and not like an 80’s disco ball. Which brings me to the purpose of my post. I decided that I would share some of the items that many of us currently have in our stash, that would be perfect for “Strobing” These items can be used for all skin types as long as they’re used correctly. Tomorrow’s post I will have a Diagram of my face of how I have done my own “Strobing” so you can see exactly how it is done. I have broken down the products in to 3 complexion categories fair, medium and deep. Stay tuned for my next post where I show you how to use these products.
