Strobing, The Latest Way To Light Up Your Face!
Ruddy, dull, sallow complexion? We all know the deal! Our skin dulls when it can no longer reflect light and loses its natural glow. Pollution, smoking, dehydration, stress, fatigue, poor diet... All of these external factors harm our skin, slow down cell renewal and deplete collagen reserves. So to get it back into shape, we need to apply antioxidant-rich treatments that will destroy the free radicals responsible for dull skin. Creams, serums and masks all hydrate our skin and prevent oxidative stress, leaving our skin visible fresh, younger and dewy.
We can apply as many treatments as we like, but sometimes our skin needs that extra touch. So thumbs-up to strobing, the latest make up trend that uses light to naturally brighten our features. The idea's simple - it's about highlighting parts of the face that reflect light in order to boost our complexion. Look at which parts of your face trap light (cheekbones, cupid's bow, middle of your nose) and apply a highlighter that's lighter than your foundation. Plus nowadays you'll find cream highlighters that contain light-reflecting pigments. The goal? To look fresh-faced, radiant and healthy! And if it's good enough for red carpet starlets, then it's good enough for us!
The first golden rule is to make sure your skin is clean and moisturised. The second golden strobing rule is to pay attention to where you apply your highlighter. Apply it to the top of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose and your cupid's bow. Don't apply any highlighter to your chin or forehead - it'll just make your skin look greasy! Finish of with a light dusting of power to fix your make up and tone down any surplus shine. A natural-looking, radiant complexion guaranteed!
