If you have only just mastered the art of contouring, sorry, put down your brush. There is a new make-up trend on the block and it promises to change your life.
Reality star Kim Kardashian made sure contouring was all the rage throughout 2014 but now the summer months have arrived, the luminous look is in and the new beauty technique of strobing is how to do it.
What is strobing, you ask?
Whereas contouring consisted of using a thick blend of darker and lighter shades to chisel your facial features such as the cheeks, nose and chin, strobing does the complete opposite and promises not to leave your face a melting pot in the summer heat.
How do you strobe?
Strobing relies solely on highlighters and natural light to define your face and radiate a youthful look.
Unlike contouring, which requires the use of multiple products, strobing is a lot simpler and consists of the applier finding where the natural light hits their cheekbones, brows, nose and chin, and using the highlighter to define that area.
While contouring often leaves a matte finish, strobing delivers a shimmery effect if the right products are used.
What does the finished results look like?
Many celebrities, including singer Jennifer Lopez, model Gigi Hadid and actress Jessica Alba, have adopted the strobing technique in the past but it has now really latched on with beauty bloggers.
