Hey my Chocó pies,
Today I am up with a very glowing topic of strobing.
What is strobing?
Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face (so, your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin).
Dabbing on the soft, shimmery shades will make your complexion look radiant, fresh, and healthy. The best part is your skin won’t feel suffocated by layers and layers of makeup, especially in the summers because you’re only using one extra product.
So, if you guys want to know how to do strobing please keep reading.
Step 1: strobing looks at its best when done on clean healthy skin. So prepare your skin by cleansing your skin with a face cleanser.
Step 2: Do your Regular face makeup like Foundation, concealer, blush, contouring (minimum). As strobing is all about glow and dewiness on the skin you must keep in mind that, don’t use any powders except the eye shadows. If you want very high dewiness on face you can also mix 2-3 drops of the illuminator with your foundation and apply it all over your face.
Go for liquid or cream blushes and skip the finishing powder as it would defeat the purpose of dewiness and would make the skin matte; which is not required.
Step 3: Find the highest points on your face. The highest points on face are cheek bones, brow bone, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, chin, centre of fore head.
Step 4: Apply the highlighter to these areas to emphasize them.
Step 5: Apply the highlighter on the center of the moving eye lid area as it would make your eyes pop and would give the illusion of big eyes.
Step 6: Add a little bit of peach highlighter on the inner corners of the eyes as it would bring out your eyes and would make them look bigger.
So, these were the steps of strobing makeup. Personally I really love strobing makeup it is the best makeup look that you can wear for this wedding season. It instantly makes the skin look more glowy, dewy and healthy.
