Simple Strobing Makeup Tutorial by Laced Ivory

Hello, I got a tan!


You’ve heard of highlighting and contouring but have you heard of strobing? It’s got nothing to do with photography, though it would make you look radiant in a photograph.


Strobing is a recent makeup technique that bypasses contouring and focuses mainly on highlighting your facial features so that they “pop” in pictures to various degrees. Simply put, it is highlighting using highlighters with different intensities. For facial features that you want to pop out more in photos, you use a more intense highlighter; and for features that you don’t need to be so pronounced, you use a less intense highlighter or shimmer powder.


In today’s strobing makeup tutorial, I show you how you can add some glow to your new summer tan in a few easy steps. The products used are listed below in the same order as they appear in the video.

Them cheeks.


I know my freckles and pores are in their full glory (if you watched the video in HD), and my nose is crooked but that’s just me. I’m not a concealor kind of girl – not yet, anyway – because I find it too much of a hassle to remove that much makeup at the end of a tiring day.
