If you are an Instagram user, you must have repeatedly been noticing the hashtag #Strobing for the past few weeks. If you have wondered about the latest fad, your search ends now.

What is Strobing?

According to makeup artists, strobing is a technique used by the accomplished makeup artists as well as fashionistas. Surprisingly, the technique is not as new as it seems but has been around for quite some time. It just has adopted a new name. Unlike contouring which uses Bronzer for adding low lights to your face, the strobing technique masterfully merges the impact of a highlighter and the natural hit of sunlight. According to Jorjee Douglass, a professional makeup artist,

“Strobing is a technique that creates a healthy glow at the highest voltage”.

How to achieve the perfect Strobing look?

The strobed face can be achieved by applying radiance-booster primer or an emollient moisturizer under your foundation. Thus strobing requires high lightening only and the use of Bronzer can effortlessly be removed from the process. In words of Wayne Goss who also has his practical tutorial on youtube“Strobing has absolutely less margin for errors than contouring does”.

This makes it more appealing to the masses because frankly, contouring was way too technical to learn. Hence the use of strobing over contouring sounds absolutely perfect. Goss further specifies the best mix of high lighters in accordance with particular skin types. The liquid and cream based high lighters are the most suitable formulas as far as strobing methods are concerned. Their application is simple and can be done conveniently with the use of your finger tips and fluffy brush but results miraculously vibrant and radiant.

Selection of Highlighter

The selection of highlighter tone varies with the skin type like for pale skin, light pink undertones go well while the dark skin tones should use highlighters with a burnt orange or burgundy tone. The technique is a good way of enhancing your cheekbones, nose tips, brow bones, center of your forehead and requires less artistry which makes it a super tool for the home based conscious beauties.

The fundamental aspect though is to start a process by taking proper care of your skin. A flawless beautiful skin always results in a significantly luminous complexion when treated with any sort of beauty product so it is crucial to decide from the wide range of beauty products the best fit for your skin type.

Strobing is a fun technique and doesn’t require any mastery and artistic aesthetics. Digging all your illuminating products will do it for you and yes it will not result in traditional layering of makeup and foundation that gives you the plastic model look, instead a radiant, more fresh and illuminating face awaits you. Just keep yourself in touch with the latest reads and you can do it all by yourself conveniently. So to all the beauties out there: “Happy strobing”!
