Strobing, otherwise known as anti-contouring, involves strategically applying pale, shimmery color to your face in order to make your skin look as though it is glowing. If you’re interested in learning how to strobe your face to achieve a natural angelic glow, keep reading to find out helpful tips on this popular makeup trend.
1. Go Pale
When choosing a highlighter shade to strobe your face, don’t be afraid to pick a very pale shade in order to make your features stand out. If you have light skin already, pearl and pale champagne colors look great on you.
For medium-skinned beauties, try a pale pink to rose-toned highlighter. Ladies with skin tones that are very deep can go with more warm-toned shades like bronze and darker pinks, but should still rely on colors that are noticeably lighter than their natural skin tone in order to reap the full benefits of strobing.
2. Leave Sparkles For Sundown
You should strobe your face differently depending on where you’ll be going and what time you’ll be going there. If you want to achieve a natural, highlighted look for work or other standard daytime activities, stick with a luminescent matte powder that illuminates your skin without looking extremely shiny when the sunlight hits it.
If you’re going out to dinner, to a club, a party, or any other event that will take place after the sun goes down, you don’t have to worry about toning down the shimmer of your highlighter. For events after dark, you can strobe your face using a sparkly highlighter that won’t make you look greasy or sweaty in the sunlight.
3. Try Liquid For Subtlety
If you want to strobe your face without looking excessively shimmery, invest in a liquid highlighter formula.
Liquid highlighters can be applied directly to your skin and offer a more subtle finish than powder highlighters. You can also blend them with your foundation or primer for an even lighter glowing hint.
