As we all know there’s this Strobing hype all over right now. Strobing basically, is just a term for highlighting. It is brilliant new face sculpting hack that focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face (cheekbones, browbones, center of forehead, down your nose and on your chin). The shimmer shades give you a radiant and fresh looking skin, that makes you look graceful. There are so many types of strobing products available in powder form, cream, liquid and pen as well. Now I know you must be wondering which type of highlighting product would work best for you, but don’t worry my loves, ive got a real brief explanation for y’all to what each of these product’s functions are and also cognize you to the best strobing products with their brands.
- If you’re looking for a “glow-from-within” kind of look, use an illuminating primer/cream before you do your foundation or you could even wear it alone for a natural glow.
- If you want to add radiance to specific parts of your face, you could use a highlighting pen that could be used over the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, browbones.
- Highlighter powder could be used to add glow to the larger areas of your face (cheekbones & middle of your forehead) It gives a subtle sheen of light.
- Liquid highlighters are the best to use, just after your done with a perfect looking foundation/base, you can use liquid highlighter to add luminosity to contour your face shape. what we are doing basically is reverse technique to contouring with the bronzer, we are adding highlighter to bounce and reflect light off higher parts of your face so as to sculpt it.
