It's about time everyone nails the strobing technique, which we swear is actually easy if you know these two things: (1) what exactly highlighting is for, and (2) how you should customize it according to your features.
Highlighting is all about bringing the center of your face forward. This means you should brighten your inner cheeks, nose bridge, forehead, and the center of chin to bring those areas to life. And if you're afraid of putting too much shimmer all over your face, you can consider a couple of alternatives:
To highlight and cover, use a brightening concealer instead of highlighter. For a naturally radiant finish, blend a strobing liquid (choose one without heavy glitter!) over those areas. Meanwhile, if you have oily skin, a matte concealer in a brighter shade will give you a similar lifting effect.
Use this photo of Kisses Delavin as an example! Given her oval-shaped face, concentrating a lighter concealer on the inner cheeks, nose bridge, and center of the forehead is ideal to maintains narrower appearance. On the other hand, applying too much on the tip of the chin may result in a longer-looking face.
That said, different face shapes have different needs when it comes to highlighting, so refer to our strobing guide for tips!
