Everybody’s doing it — Strobing…which is basically highlighter to the nth degree. But there’s a fine line between illumination and well, let’s just say things can get a little scary if you over do it. So for this one, we called in an expert. Cassandra Garcia, Editorial Makeup Artist at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics shares this genius step-by-step on achieving strobing success…
“Strobing is a great way to wake up the face and impart a really radiant and ethereal glow. This technique might be your go-to on days when you feel like you need an extra glow. Strobing also provides illumination to the skin and highlights what we want and not what we don’t.” – Cassandra Garcia, Editorial Makeup Artist at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
Strategically apply Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow to all points that you are going to want to enhance (center of forehead, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, center of chin, high planes of the cheeks).
Then pat Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow into skin with fingers…this helps to further blend and warm up the product on the skin…leaving behind a very natural finish.
Layer Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick on the same places you applied Wonder Glow. Using a brush sweep this powder formula onto the complexion, which will then enhance the desired illuminated planes of the face.
Bring the strobing effect to your eyes by applying the lightest shade of Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Brick to the inner corners to give a wide eye effect. Take that same brush and lightly apply the Shimmer to the cupid’s bow as the final touch.
