How to: Strobing/highlighting makeup technique.


Hi guys, I’m here today with a strobing technique. Strobing is just intense highlighting, it’s layering highlights on top of each other to give your face really intense glow. Starting of with a cream, because when you first start with a cream everything sticks to it more. My favorite to use is by Farmasi ( Illuminate me silver) or Maybelline (strobing stick) and what I like about these highlighters is that they give you nice sheen so when you move looks very healthy not super sparkly. I use my finger to apply it, ring finger, it gives me control and light pressure. Next, we move on to where you want to put you highlights, and basically you apply it where the light hits your face, above brow bone, on your cheek bone, also on the bridge of your nose, your chin, every part you want to come forward. When you give yourself a base highlighter, it all looks dewy because it’s a cream highlighter. You want to keep going an intensified a little bit more using powder highlighters, you can use a mix of highlighters or one of your favorite powder highlight. For powders I use brush, it’s usually a fen brush. This is going to intensified but also it’s gonna set that cream for you. For the last step to strobing is hitting those arias you want the most intense highlight. We have nice sheen, nice glowy, dewy look, but with the final step we want to hit the top of cheek bones, on the brow bone, inner corner of your eyes, tip of your nose, cupid’s bow, you want these highlights to really stand out and pop. So for this step you want to use also powder highlight but really intense one, or if you don’t have more than one, you can you the same one and layer it on top. These is pretty much it, I love how it look, it gives you that healthy look, nice glow to your skin, it’s very youthful. I hope you find this useful, let me know what you think about it. See you in my next post! xoxo
