What is Strobing?

Strobing is a new technique lighting and reflecting on high planes and point of your face giving you a more youthful look.  Instead of painterly bronzing and blending, strobing seeks to define your features by using light—and light alone. Strobing is the ultimate anti-contouring (see best contouring products here and how to define your cheekbones here) by only focusing on highlighting focused areas alone. Sound simple right? While this new beauty technique seems less maintenance  don’t be fooled – this look requires naturally- glowing skin as its base so healthy beauty regimans (the best way to take care of your beautiful skin) and bi-weekly brightening face masksis a must.

As far as application, here are two tried-and-true tips for a strobe-like effect:

1) Fuse your skincare and makeup together as much possible for a dewy, wet-shine finish. For example, if you’re going to use concealer, add moisturizer to it.

2) Add shine to the areas of your face that catch light naturally, like your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or temples.
