Strobing is the highlighter technique you need for glossy skin

We’ve learned how to contour thanks to Kim Kardashian and Mario Dedivanovic but since glossy eyelids and glass skin took over our Instagram feeds, strobing is the technique we’re looking to master.

What is strobing?

While contouring is about creating a shade and highlight on the skin, strobing is more to do with emphasising the latter and ditching the former.

In basic terms, to ‘strobe’ your skin is to accentuate the areas of the face where light would naturally hit, such as the top of your cheek bones, the brow bones and cupid’s bow.

How do you ‘strobe’?

Rather than using a powder highlighter, strobing is achieved through the use of liquid and creams in order to create a mirrored glowing effect on the top of the cheekbones.

Check out what we class as the best highlighters in the business, many of which can be mixed into foundation and moisturiser for an overall glow, or applied directly to cheekbones and other areas for a targeted strobe.
