Stop, Drop & Strob!

No, no, this is not a rave this is makeup! The latest makeup trend strobing is layering different textured highlighters for a highlight that will be seen from space!

strobing 2Where to strob: You can apply your highlighters at the high points of the face to bring them forward. These areas include: inner corner of eyes, browbone, top of the cheekbone, cupids bow, top of the chin, straight down the nose, tip of the nose, and above the brow. Oily skins can still strob, but may want to keep the highlights away from the T-zone to avoid looking too shiny.

How to strob: Using your fingers, a beauty blender, or a brush, build up the highlight by using creams or liquids on the high points of the face before you’ve set your makeup with powder. Layer it up with a powder highlighter on top to set the cream or liquid highlighter and make it really pop!

What to strob with:

Mini Beauty Blender– When used damp, this applies and blends liquids and powders beautifully. Since it’s so cute and small you can get a precise highlight.
