The Basics

Strobing is all about having a dewy, glowing complexion. The objective is to draw attention to your best features which showcase a youthful glow. So, instead of caking your face with a plethora of products, all you need now is a mineral highlighter and a natural makeup brush.

Prep Your Skin

Because this is a low maintenance look, having flawless skin is essential, as otherwise, imperfections are easily visible. Before you can start strobing, you need well-hydrated, cleansed skin. For a total skin makeover, first start with a hydrating cleanser, we also recommend using the glo-therapeutics Skin Protecting Power Duo to give your skin the hydration boost it craves. Strobing is a tricky look for oily skin so prep your face with glo-therapeutics Oil Free Moisturiser to keep oil at bay.

Find the Right Highlighter

Choosing the right shade of highlighter for your skin is crucial. Strobing is all about creating a subtle look. Your highlighter should be similar to the colour of your skin tone. Basically, what you are looking for is a metallic version of your foundation. The glo-minerals Sheer Tint Base Illuminator is an amazing universal highlighter, to suit all skin tones. Pro tip: If you have oily skin, tone down the look. Avoid your t-zone and focus on just adding a touch of shimmery highlighting powder. The glo-minerals Shimmer Brick or Dust 24k are great alternatives to a liquid highlight.

Take your Position

Strobing is meant to look natural so apply your highlighter where the light would naturally shine on your face. That means focusing on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, the corners of your eyes, under your brow bone and over your cupid's bow. Dab the highlighter on gently with your fingers and be careful not to use too much. You'll want to start with a very small dot on each area.

Blend It Out

Once you’ve applied the highlighter to the desired areas, use a makeup brush to start blending. Remember, you want to keep the highlighter in focused spots so don't forget to blend out any harsh makeup lines.
