I think that strobing is quite possibly my favourite make up trend so far. Skin is made luminous with clever highlighting to enhance and define the features, It gives you a fresh, ethereal glow and brings radiance and light to the complexion.
Where to apply
Highlighter is applied anywhere that light would naturally hit your face; swept over the cheekbones and pulled slightly up in a C shape to your temples, on your cupids bow, your brow bone, the centre of your lips and on the bridge and tip of your nose.
How to wear
Strobing works well with a light and dewy base, it's also best to opt for a matte/minimal shimmer blusher or bronzer like MAC Well Dressed Blusher or Rimmel Matte Bronzer to pair with this look, this avoids things getting a little too shimmery. It also ensures that the highlighter really gets to glow and stand out.
For a creamy, opalescent glow, Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter gives a boost of radiance to the skin. It can be mixed into your foundation to create a dewy base or dabbed onto the high points of your face to highlight them.
Topshop Glow highlighters are beautifully iridescent and leave you with an almost ethereal glow. They're my favourite product to use for strobing as the creamy formula blends so seamlessly onto the skin and catches the light beautifully as you move. See me wearing Topshop Glow in Polish here.
A golden, champagne highlighter like MAC Soft and Gentle gives an effortless, illuminated glow to the skin. This mineralised highlighter glides easily over the skin, especially when applied with a fan brush. See me wearing it here.
