One of the hottest make up trends right now is strobing. Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face. Basically, your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and your chin. Dabbing these soft, shimmery shades on will make your complexion look radiant, and healthy. The idea is to achieve a soft, dewy look as opposed to a harsher, sculpted look.
Cosmopolitan offers these tips for this technique:
- Use a highlighter shade that best matches your skin tone.
- Only use the highlighter in spots that catch light.
- After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush, or a damp makeup sponge.
