STROBING| NEW MAKE-UP TREND ALERT !!!

STROBING| NEW MAKE-UP TREND ALERT !!!

ASALAAM-WA-LAIKUM LADIES , 

For those of you’s that haven’t as yet heard or seen this new trend , let me fill you in, I know I’m abit delayed but with RAMADHAN and Eid I hardly had time to do anything.With that been said STROBING is been talked about on social media , magazines as well as youtubers. It’s been said that srobing is the new contour ….

WHAT IS STROBING : 

strobing is just the standard highlighting of the high points of your face minus the contour , though I feel strobing is somewhat more dewy , luminous and very fresh looking . This look is best achieved by using cream products and finishing off with powder highlights .

Their are few ways to strobe , there’s  no incorrect way .

These are 2 simple ways to strobe : 

1. Apply a moisturizer to the skin . Apply either a cream highlight or luminizer to the high points of the face ( cheekbones , center of the forehead , above the lips and the chin ) . Use a stippling brush and some Mac fix plus on the brush stipple the foundation on the face, this way you won’t blend away the highlight . Set the foundation with powder strategically so that the highlight doesn’t mattify. Finish the look with a powder highlight on those high points .

2. Apply a moisturizer. Apply the under eye concealer if you have dark circles . Apply cream highlight to the high points of the face . Apply a good amount of powder highlight on the high points and set the makeup with a setting spray .

That’s all there is to strobing 🙂 ! Hope this helps you strobe .
