Strobing is the new trend word that has taken the beauty world by storm. It’s the opposite to contouring, it is a technique that removes all shadow from your face whereas contouring adds shadow.
So to break it down strobing literally means highlighting – once we say that you probably feel much more comfortable with this beauty look.
Strobing is a trend that highlights and illuminates your features and you end up with a natural, fresh look that will take you from day to night.
So what products are best to use when create the perfect strobing look?

Moisturiser is key! Whenever we ask a top makeup artist we ask what is the most important part of their beauty regime and they always say the skin care – cleanse, tone and moisturise.
Then what you need is a great base of foundation. It’s really important to create a smooth fresh finish when it comes to your foundation, as this is such a natural look your skin won’t have anywhere to hide so a good base is essential!
When it comes to choosing your foundation we opt for a hydrating, dewy finish as this complements the highlighting. We love our Undress Your Skin Illuminating Foundation for that perfect finish.

Next choose a lightweight concealer to hide any dark circles – if your concealer is a little heavy mix it with your moisturiser. We recommend our Undress your Skin Under Eye Concealer – this was tested against a YSL Touche Eclat concealer by Cosmopolitan here.

Once you have your base sorted it times to move to the highlighters!!
Although if you want more of a bronzed look (we know this can be easier to wear but it’s not technically the no-makeup strobing look) then gently dust your favourite bronzer across your cheek bones and blend in with a powder brush.
Our brand new Strobe and Glow Kit is the perfect way to strobe on the glow. This compact kit makes it super easy to top up your strobe wherever you are.
Here is an easy guide on how to use our Strobe and Glow Kit
If you want more of an intense Strobing look then you need to look for a strong-pigmented highlighter, we recommend a mixture of powder and cream to get that dewy shine.
Don’t forget about the eyes… we can’t get enough of our brand new LUXE Lighten and Brighten Eye Primer.
With these highlighting products you will be ahead of the trend this Spring and people wont be able to stop looking at your glow!
P.S don’t forget you cant achieve the professional look without the right tools – our brushes are super high quality that makeup artists love!
