How to Makeup Strobing

makeup artist sunningdale

The contouring trend has been seen everywhere for a while now, thanks to Instagram-famous makeup artists and famous celebrities for example Kim Kardashian.

So How do we contour -  by using products two shades darker and lighter than your skin tone, you make features recede and accentuate as desired. But in practice, contouring can be a little challenging. Especially if you are blending 2 foundation colours together there is quite a knack.  Perhaps you just don't have the time or patience to get the look at home.

Worry no More !  ''STROBING'' - is the newest beauty craze, it is far quicker and easier to do at home yourself

Instead of getting all your light and dark shades in order just dig out your favourite illuminating products.

My Favourite Illuminating product is Arbonne sheer Glow highlighter.  Simply because it does what it says.  It gives a radiant glow and blends easily without leaving a different shade on the skin just pure illumination.


Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, apply the highlighter to areas of the face light would naturally hit.

cheekbones, brow bones, the centre of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin (See first diagram)

Dab the illuminator on softly and the effect will  make your complexion look radiant, fresh, and healthy while giving you an ethereal oomph that is sure to turn heads.

The best part? Your skin won't feel suffocated by layers and layers of makeup in the Summer heat because you're only using one extra product.
