STROBING: SUBTLE HIGHLIGHTING FOR FRESH FACED BEAUTY
We are still totally obsessed with the glow of great skin and the newest buzz word is ‘strobing’. A switch from the somewhat harsher contouring (at least when applied on the street) this shows off your bone structure and flawless bare faced skin. An impeccable skincare routine is a must with the commitment to your well being being reflected in the glow of your face.
Firstly ensure skin is hydrated from within by drinking water and cold pressed juices without too much sugar. After skin is cleansed morning and night layer a moisturiser over a serum. I love CLARINS DOUBLE SERUM as it has the richness of an oil without feeling greasy. If you are in need of intense hydration CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY MICRO SYSTEM has an almost immediate effect with results showing after just half an hour.
When it comes to applying your highlighter / strobing product of choice apply ONLY to areas that naturally catch the light: the top of your cheekbones, along the temples, below the brow bone, the bridge of your nose and just above your cupids bow on your lips. With this look less is more to avoid looking greasy. The cult classic is MAC STROBE CREAM it not only highlights but is packed full of antioxidants to really revive tired skin. If you like a cream highlighter NARS MULTIPLE in Malibu is a suit all shade, simply blend in well with your fingers or a brush for a luminous shine. If you have oily skin BOBBI BROWNs powder highlighter in Bronze Glow is beautiful providing shimmer without glitter.
