WHAT IS STROBING?

How to Strobe Your Makeup!

Strobing is trending on all of your social media and yes women’s faces have started to catch light more than they used to. So, is strobing just another word for highlighting? Yes. It’s highlighting with a flare (literally) but it is different than your typical highlighting in many ways. The industry has taken highlighting to a whole new level with strobing which is going to enhance light reflection and keep those cheek bones poppin’.

“The goal of strobing is to create radiant, flawless, youthful looking skin,” says lead makeup director Carina Hernandez of international beauty service company, Event Makeup in San Diego. Hernandez advises scheduling more time to do your makeup if you plan on strobing, “it is a longer process because you’re building the products and it also takes more advanced techniques.” 

STROBING MAKEUP ON BRIDE
See this bridal makeup look by Carina Hernandez of Event Makeup on a beautiful bride and her bridesmaid with cheek bones that have a wonderful highlight to them.

 

Thankfully we have our very own expert to tell us how strobing is done to get that dewy, youthful glow!

  1. Start with clear skin, “It’s important to fully exfoliate your skin so that you’re face looks flawless and so your makeup doesn’t look patchy or flaky. I like to use Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry Facial Microdermabrasion + Multiacid Chemical Peel. You don’t want your products to catch on your skin and highlight the wrong things,” explains Hernandez.
  2. Hernandez suggests using Dermadoctor Photodynamic Therapy 3-in-1 Facial Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
  3. “Apply a luminous primer like Becca Backlight Priming Filter $38,” suggests Hernandez.
  4. Hernandez says to then work the areas you’re strobing with a crème like MAC Strobe Cream $33.
  5. “Then set it with an illuminating powder like Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in opal $38 or Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey (effervescent caramel honey) $26 or Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo $30, those are my personal favorites,” says Hernandez.

Hernandez then gave us some tips that will help with the process. “If using other liquid products,” she suggests, “start with foundation, concealer, strobe cream (in the areas you want to highlight), apply the setting powder, a crème over the same areas and then finally using highlighting powders for the best effect. Using a beauty blender is the best way to blend without over blending; I use fingers to tap in the creams and the MAC blush brush 116 for any powders.”
