Strobing really can be this simple! Here are some more tips on how to strobe:

  • First you’ll need to pick your strobing product, which could be a powder or a cream (or both!) and apply it where light would naturally hit your face
  • Tools for powder: Use a fan brush or fluffy brush for your cheekbones, forehead, and chin, and use a smaller brush for your brow bone, the inner corner of the eyes, your nose, and cupid’s bow
  • Tools for cream: Apply with a foundation or concealer brush (depending on where you’re applying it) and blend it with your favorite makeup sponge
  • Strobing doesn’t have to be a “one size fits all” technique! Try out what works for your face and what doesn’t
  • If you still want a chiselled look while glowing at the same time, who says you can’t do a light contour as well?
  • Finish your look with a setting spray to keep your new shine in place all day
