Strobing | The "anti-contouring"

Hello everyone!

For those who don't like contouring and those who never quite figured out how to contour, meet "strobing".  Basically strobing is an "anti-contouring" technique.  
Strobing uses highlighter to bring out your features and helps you achieve a dewy and neutral look.  This technique uses light to shape your face rather than contouring which primarily uses shadows.  Typically we pair highlighting with contouring but highlight is quite beautiful on its own, especially in the summer months. 
How to get the look:

With strobing, you simply apply a generous amount of highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes, under your brow bones, the tops of your cheekbones, your temples, your Cupid’s bow, the bridge of your nose and anywhere the light naturally hits your face and then blend.  The key is to find a liquid or powder highlighter that compliments your skin tone.

Do you prefer strobing over highlighting and counturing?  I certainly do!  Comment below and share your favourite strobing products!
