New Strobing Makeup Trend + Video

By Jessica Melgoza - July 01, 2015

Hello loves, in todays post I thought I'd talk about the new makeup trend that's is quickly becoming the "new contouring". What am I talking about? Strobing. That's what I'm talking about. Now for those of you who haven't heard or read about it yet, strobing is basically radiant glowing skin. The way to achieve this new strobing trend is simple and easy just follow the steps below. 




How To Achieve the Strobing Look


Step #1: Find the right highlighting shade for your skin tone

Fair Skin - Champagne Tones 
The Balm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter 

Light-Medium Skin - Pink Champagne Tones
E.l.f. Cosmetics Baked Highlighter in Blush Gems

Olive Skin - Golden Tones
'Bubbly' Eyeshadow from the Stila 'In The Light' Palette  

Dark Skin - Terra Cotta Tones 
Sephora Baked Bronzer Duo in Spicy Heat  

Step #2: Find the right formula for your skin type

Dry Skin - Liquid or Cream Highlighter

Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Kitten Shimmer


Normal Skin - Liquid, Cream or Powder Highlighter
Benefit Watt's Up Luminizer 

Oily Skin - Powder Highlighter 
The Balm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter 

Step 3: Apply the highlighter to the high points of the face

Step 4: Set the highlight (optional)
This optional step I recommend for those using powder highlighters because it'll give the highlight that extra glow plus it helps the powder look less powdery. I like using MAC's Fix + spray.
By following these super easy steps you too can have strobing skin.
