We left contouring in the last year, but we couldn’t start the new year without sonething new and this is where the strobing comes in. So what is strobing exactly? Strobing is basically just highlighting without contouring and using a very small amount of blush lightly. This makes your features more prominent and, your make-up will look much more natural and dewy. Both creamy and powdery products work great, but I do prefer creamy ones since it blends easier, therefore it will give you a flawless look. Using the strobing technique can really freshen you up in the morning and give you the glow that everyone needs.
1.YSL Touché Éclat Highliter:
I have already mentioned this product plenty of times in my posts before, but I just can’t get enough of it. This is definetely my #1 highlighter. I like to use it on the top of my cheekbones, down my nose, a little inbetween my brows and on my forehead. In my opinion this one gives the most natural, dewy highlight without sparkle to keep it nice and simple. I apply it after my blush which brings life to my face.
Although this product is a concealer, by using a lighter shade than your skin tone, it can be used as a great highlighter! I found that it actually has a very similar finish as the YSL Touché Éclat highlighter, though that has a prettier finish, but this one is obviously much more affordable. It has a spongy end that make it easier to apply and blend on the skin. I also like to use it as a concealer that is the right shade for my skin as a concealer!
3. L’oreal Infallible
This little palette contains a bronzer and a highlighter which comes really handy that you can just throw it in your bag and use it whenever you need to fix your make up. The highlight is shimmery so I like to use it when we are going out with friends since I find it a little too much for a daily use. However, by the end of the night I tend to have shimmer all over my face, but atleast it comes off easily. Though until it stays in the right places, it gives that extra to your finished look!
So these are my absolute favourite highlighters. I can’t go a day without using one of them. Strobing gives you a healthier look that I love using everyday. It’s very easy and simple and lifts the face up instantly.
