Is it though?
Isn’t strobing just a technique we all use when we’re lazy in the mornings?
If you have been on social media for the past 2 weeks, you’ll know that strobing is all the rage right now. Strobing (aka highlighting) focuses exclusively on just highlighter and illuminators as oppose to contouring that helps you define and structure your face using darker shades. Strobing focuses exactly on where the light would hit your face – in this case, it can be the highest points of your cheekbones, your nose, your temples, your cupid’s bow and even your collar bones. Although this look makes one look more angelic, radiating and glowy, I still do prefer contouring (even with the summer heat, when I have time of course).
Regardless, I had to make a video to show my subscribers what strobing is and how you can achieve it. Please see above for the video and below for a product list of what I have used.
