Strobing | Summer’s Newest Trend

Girl, just when we got the hang of the contour, they had to switch it up on us. Strobing is the latest beauty trend and basically it’s highlighting without contouring. Which is a nice beauty hack for summer. It looks great. You get your glow on in less time than it would have taken you to contour.

I’m thinking the word “strobing” came from MAC’s product that hydrates, clarifies and luminizes. It’s called Strobe cream. And you can try the smaller size for $10 if you’re interested! I’m definitely thinking about trying this, especially since the rating for it is 4.6 out of 5! It’s also suitable for every type of skin, in case you are wondering. This product definitely looks like a summer must have.

This is a great look for any beauty junkie in the go that is bored with her current routine. You can grab a highlighter or luminizer in any shade and in any price point. Also you could do liquid or powder.

To achieve a dewy look I would start with:

Strobe cream (use it as primer)

Foundation/ bb cream ( I like to use BB Cream in the summer)


Makeup setting spray– this is important so that your makeup doesn’t melt in the heat. Of course you can do whatever you like for your eyes and lips but this is how you would accomplish that strobing look on your face.

There are lots of highlighters that would help you achieve this strobing look from NYX, Hard Candy, Colour Pop (my newest favorite) and Loreal has the dupe for Nars!

Just make sure you keep the highlighter application only where the sun would naturally hit it and light up your face. That would be your cheek bones brow bones middle of forehead and middle of chin. This is a great way to show off that summer tan you’re working on! For some ideas on how to do it, check out the hashtag on Instagram #Strobing
