Strobing has literally taken the beauty world by storm of late and to be honest I can see why. Light added to the face screams youth and with a giant leap in the amount of women including myself trying to dip into the pot of youth it is no surprise that this youth enhancing technique is now being used in homes the length and breadth of Ireland. There are many ways to strobe my lovely readers and I am here to show you every way possible. First you can strobe under the makeup by adding an illuminating primer such as the aptly named Strobe cream by MAC. This veil of luminosity will transform your face into a light catching orb of fabulousity before you even have a chance to apply your foundation. If you like a pearlescent finish then the Buff Make up Glo in Movie star is the base for you. I like to add a little drop of this into my BB cream to in order to make my skin look healthy and radiant. It looks great under the brow bone too.
If your approach is more traditional you may love the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. This multi tonal light catcher is available in several shades from nudes, cool pinks to warm peaches. Nectar is my Holy Grail highlighter and I am due to buy another one soon, my last purchase having been around 18 months ago. So it is quite thrifty on the pocket too. With any of these products you can just use them lightly. My favourite areas to strobe are cheekbones, forehead, brow bone and cupids bow. If you are nervous start by adding illuminator to your foundation and take it from there. In short strobing is all about adding light as opposed to shine and that is why many people love it so much. ?
