If you haven’t heard, contouring is out and strobing is in. Although it may sound scary, it’s literally 10 times easier than contouring and anyone can do it. It’s very simple – all there is to it is placing bright highlights on areas of your face where the light naturally hits, creating an illuminated complexion and a healthy-looking skin tone. Here’s how:
First, start off by using a highlighter that is 2 shades lighter than your skin tone. I’m using Jane Iredale’s Circle/Delete Concealer #1.
Using your ring finger (because it’s the weakest digit, you don’t have to worry about applying too much product), gently dab the tops of your cheekbones, your temples, the center of your nose, the middle of your chin, and on your cupid’s bow.
Then, either using your finger or a blending brush, buff the highlighter into your skin for a natural-looking finish.
There you have it! A bright, fresh, dewy complexion. I always add a little blush or bronzer under my cheekbones to top the whole look off. And remember, the best way to get a healthy glow is by starting with great skin care.
