Contouring hit us a few years ago, and it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. With spring coming I’ve been contouring without the contour, in other words I’ve been strobing. Yes, strobing is just a fancy word for what it means when you’re using a highlighter without contouring.
When I first saw the strobing trend I didn’t like it. People were looking oily and greasy, nothing elegant about that. Now on the other hand, I’ve tried it a few times myself and must say I absolutely love it.
You simply apply the highlighter where the sun would normally hit to enhance and bring out your features: the cheekbones, chin, cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose, forehead, browbone as well as the inner corner of your eyes to make them appear brighter and wider.
On my picture above I’ve made a rough draft of where to apply the highlighter, as I for one prefer visualization when possible.
Find a highlighter to suit your skintone to achieve the healthy glow! Don’t use a highlighter that’s heavy on the glitter though, as we want it to be a natural lit-from-within kind of look. I’ve been using the Mary-Lou Manizer, as it looks quite natural and make me achieve the look we’re going for.
Happy strobing girls!
