Strobing Makeup!

Hello Lovelies!

So lately the beauty community has been talking about a new trend called "Strobing". For oily skin girls like me this trend may be a little hard to achieve without looking like an oily mess, but if done correctly it can be gorgeous! Strobing is basically highlighting your face to the max! You want to highlight:
your cheekbones, 
inner corner of the eye
brow bone, 
bridge of the nose (wouldnt recommend for oily skin girls)
chin and 
cupid's bow!
The idea of strobing is to highlight your face without adding darkness or shadow to it. So you definitely wouldn't contour and you wouldn't really bronze either. Its mainly just highlighter and blush!
Products used to achieve this glow: 
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
Colour Pop highlighter in Monster

Hope you guys enjoyed!
Sorry about the weird faces I pull but I really wanted to capture the highlighter as much as I could! Let me know your thoughts on this trend called Strobing!

  3. Isn't strobbing just another fancy word for highlighting? I've read and seen few articles about strobbing and frankly, they are the same thing but I could be wrong though. Would love to know what are the big differences between highlighting and strobbing? xx

    1. You are soooo right! Thats exactly why I think this trend is kinda pointless because its just highlighting you face! The only difference between strobing and contouring is that strobing is not adding darkness to the face. Otherwise strobing is just highlighting the crap outta your face! lol

  5. Strobing looks amazing on you. My skin is not particularly oily except my nose, I would never apply highlighter there... even in the winter.. it gets its natural "glow" by itself :P

  10. It really looks great on you! I've heard about it and also saw a video on youtube that showed the two of them (contouring and strobing) in order to show the differences.
