Meet The New Makeup Trend”Strobing”: A Natural Way Of Contouring

Meet The New Make Trend"Strobing": The Natural Way Of ContouringMeet strobing; the new contouring! Strobing is all about a natural and dewy look by enhancing your features with only a highlighter.This technique will make your face look radiant, fresh and healthy. No more tons of foundation and powder like contouring! Your face is actually able to breath! Perfect for girls who don’t like to apply tons of makeup! The best part? No layers and layers of makeup in the Summer heat.

Ok, so what do I need?

First prep your skin. A simple highlighter will do all the work for you. You’re aiming for a dewy look and healthy look. The most important step of strobing: highlighting all the right places. It’s all about brightening up your face. We absolutely love Paul & Joes’s highlighter!

How to strobe?

Highlight the places where the light naturally would hit you. Apply highlighter onto the apples of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow to highlight the main areas of your face.  Apply highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes, your brow bone, your chin and the center of your forehead.  Check out this strobing tutorial from Nikkietutorials. Hands down the best beauty guru on Youtube!

What do you girls think of this new trend! We love it!

    I don’t really see the whole hype behind strobing to be honest. Isn’t it just highlighting? Nothing new here, probably just a marketing strategy or something. Lol

    As an MUA – I believe STROBING should be used in editorial make up, for specific things … catwalks.. high fashion ETC!

    But highlight and contouring should be used for more or less everyday ( outings) it may seem like way too much make up but its really helped me find a little more comfort in my own skin! I love to define my cheekbones or make my nose appear smaller and think everyone should be able to do so without feeling as though they’ve got instagram-selfie-amout-of make up on…


    CREAM C n H = Is more for evening or special occasion as I find it been more intense than powder, many may disagree!

    Let me know what your opinion is careergirldaily + other readers?

    I have always applied my highlighter this way and I feel that it is a more natural finish to makeup.
