Here is the difference between Contouring & Strobing…
In this week’s blog we are here to help you consider contouring versus strobing debate to help you figure out not only how to achieve both these looks, but why one might be better for your face than the other.
Contouring combines a mix of darker tones to chisel features such as cheekbones and jaw line with lighter shades for highlighting making cheekbones pop and opening and brightening eyes. Contouring gives shape to an area of the face and enhances your natural facial structure through subtle makeup application. The secret to contouring is all about creating the illusion of imperceptibly defined shadows on your face. Above Karla used the Bronze & Sculpt Contour kit.
Strobing only uses light to enhance your face. Basically, you’re taking all of your usual contouring steps, but just ditching the part where you carve out your features and heading straight for the highlighting products.
The result looks dewy and fresh, like you’re being lit-up from within. Avoid shimmer or chunky glitter because this is all about creating a soft radiant glow. Using the NEW Strobe & Glow Highlighting Kitto enhance where light would naturally hit your face, which for most of us is across the temples, cheekbones, and bridge of your nose. If you’re afraid of looking oily, avoid putting any highlighter on your forehead.
