Contouring is so last year. At long last the Kardashian inspired (and much over [and often badly] used) trend is waining and there is a new kid on the block; Strobing. In all honesty Strobing is nothing new – Make-up Artist have been using this techniques for enos but we just called it highlighting…
Do The Groundwork
If you suffer from dry or dehydrated skin then you may find using a hydrating serum on top will also help give much need moisture. In my kit I am currently using the Hosanna H20 Intensive Skin Plumping Serum from Antipodes; I apply it to the face and neck and leave it for a few minutes before going in with the next product.
The difference between highlighting and strobing is very simple. Although the techniques are pretty much the same, it is the products that are different; Strobing uses products which give a dewy finish.
Darker skins have a whole host of natural and organic choices including Buriti Bronzer from RMS Beauty, Vapour Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer or Organic Glam Liquid Shimmer Highlighter in Warm Gold. From a powder perspective try We Evade Bronzing Powder from Studio 78 Paris (read my thoughts here), Jane Irdale’s 24 Karot Gold Dust or Alima Pure’s Highlighter in Dolce. Avril Bronzing Powder is also a great budget option.

If none of the above take your fancy then there are other products on the market that may do the job such as Oskia Get Up & Glow; Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer; Lucy B’s Frangipani Bronzing Shimmer Oil or This Works Skin Deep Golden Elixir.
