New Makeup Trend: What is Strobing?

Astroboingll of the beauty and fashion powers that be, say that contouring is out, and strobing is in! What is strobing, exactly? It’s pretty much a trendy word to describe good old fashioned highlighting. Whenever you see cheekbones that look dewy (and in some cases slightly metallic) that is achieved through highlighting. I’ve always been a fan of a dewy skin, there’s nothing better than a fresh healthy glow. Strobing looks best when it’s not overdone; concentrate on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, the center of the forehead, and the center of the chin – that is it! If you do more that than, I promise you that it will look crazy. I’ve compiled a list of a some of my favorite highlighters (for women of all skin tones) that will have you rockin’ the strobe look in no time.
