Strobing/Highlighting Makeup Tutorial
Have you heard about the newest makeup trend called strobing?
This trend has been seen everywhere on blogs, magazines, and Youtube. Strobing is just another word for highlighting, but on a much more refined level.
If you are a makeup artist or someone who knows about makeup then you will know that strobing is nothing new. It’s basically just highlight without the contour. Strobing is highlighting the places where sunlight would naturally touch your face, so if you are in the sun, the sun would naturally touch:
- the top of your cheekbones
- the center of your forehead
- the top of your brow bone
- the tip and bridge of your nose
- the cupids bow and,
- the center of your chin
Strobing/highlighting is a great trend for summer because it gives you that super dewy, fresh, youthful, and glowy beautiful skin.
Let’s get to the tutorial!
- MAC Strobe Cream
- Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #6
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in “Light Neutral”
- Makeup Forever HD Powder in “Translucent”
- NYX Liquid Illuminator in “Gleam”
- Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in “Gilded Honey”
- MAC Mineralize Blush in “Dainty”
- NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray
- MAC Lip Pencil in “Stripdown”
- NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in “Sugar Pie”
- Beauty Blender
- Morphe G2 Pointed Buffer Brush
- Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush
- Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter
- Sigma E40 Tapered Blending
- Real Techniques Stippling Brush
- Morphe M406 Large Duo Foundation Brush
- Sigma E30 Pencil
Lather on a great moisturizer or MAC Strobe cream all over the face to make sure your skin is super moisturized and looking fresh.
Next, you want to wear a foundation that is light and luminous on your skin because you want your face to look very healthy and radiant so Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is the perfect foundation for this look. Start by dotting the foundation all over the face, and then with a damp beauty blender, blend that foundation into the skin with a stippling motion.
Apply a concealer that is about 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone to conceal those dark circles and to help highlight the face (under eye area, bridge of nose, center of the forehead, cupids bow, and center of the chin). Blend out this concealer with a pointed buffer in a quick tapping movement to help give it that more natural look.
To get that long lasting and vibrant strobe look, it’s best to layer on the highlighters. So first, apply a cream/liquid highlighter to help the other highlighter stick to it better and stand out more. Using your finger, lightly tap on the NYX Liquid Illuminator in “Gleam” to the high points of your face (tops of your cheekbones, top of your brow bone, center of the forehead, the tip and bridge of your nose, cupids bow, and the center of your chin).
Now to intensify that glow a little more, you want to set the liquid highlighter with Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in “Gilded Honey.” Using a tapered highlighter brush, lightly go over all the areas you just highlighted to help set that liquid highlighter.
Apply a shimmery light pink blush to help give you that youthful look and to add a little pop of color to the cheeks. Using a stippling brush, apply Mac Mineralize Blush in “Dainty” right below that highlight that was placed on the tops of your cheekbones.
Lastly, spray NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray all over the face to help intensify the look and to help the powders settle into your skin and make it look super dewy.
