4. Strobe The Right Spots
You should never apply highlighter all over your face unless you want to look like you’ve been sweating all day. There are certain places you should highlight and others you should leave matte.
To put it simply, you should strobe the higher places on your face. These areas include the tops of your cheekbones up to your temples, your brow bone, just above your eyebrows, and down the center of your forehead.
5. Add Bronzer
If you feel a little ghost-like after you’ve applied your highlighter, you can add extra definition to your look with bronzer.
Carefully apply your favorite bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks and blend it into your highlighter to add some warmth and color to your glowing skin.
6. Strobe Your Eyelids
You can add extra shimmer and glow to your look by strobing your eyelids as well as your face. Just use a darker shade of highlighter and apply and blend it into your eyelids as you would eyeshadow to achieve an extra shimmery finish.
7. Dampen For More Intensity
If you’re hoping to achieve a really intense glow, dampen your brushes before using them to apply your highlighter. Just run the brushes under water and towel dry them to remove excess liquid.
The dampness of the brushes will help the highlighter adhere to your skin more easily for a long-lasting, extreme glow.
If you strobe your face incorrectly, you can end up looking like a disco ball, which is not altogether desirable. Use the tips in this post to learn how to strobe your face to achieve a flawless finish with the perfect amount of glow.
