No, definitely not. Actually, it is the opposite of contouring. Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face (so, your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin.)
This technique is way more easy to realise and perfect for those who opt for a minimalist look. What do you need? A good illuminator (strobe cream or sheer powder) and your finger tips or a fluffy brush!
- Prep your skin with a suitable moisturizer or a primer – strobing is all about a fresh glow
- Use a foundation or a colored cream if needed
- Add illuminator to highlight the spots that catch light and blend it nicely
- To fix the strobe in place and to add more glow use a shimmery highlighter.
