Strobing, sounds so special doesn’t it? It’s just a fancy term of highlighting. Has it taken over contouring? Forget contouring, it was too hard to do anyway! Strobing will give you a glowy and dewy look. It really brightens your face and the best thing about it, its easy to do.
I found some really affordable strobe creams from Barry M! £4.49 each. They apply to skin beautifully, blend easily and most of all are gorgeous colours. The colours are Frosty Pink and Iced Bronze. I would 100% pay more for these. They twist up and down and you get so much of the product. They shine bright like a diamond. I love the look, I feel like my skin looks bright and hydrated. Who doesn’t want that?

The big question is, how do you strobe?
Follow my simple steps!
- Prep your skin as you would usually before applying make up. Go ahead with your normal foundation and concealer routine.
- Now apply your strobe cream to all the high points on your face, this is where the light would naturally hit you. This would be on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, the centre at the top of your brow and the inner corners of your eye. I apply the Barry M strobe sticks straight on to my skin.
- Next, you need to blend into the skin with your fingers or a damp beauty blender until there is no obvious make up lines or harsh edges. If you are using a powder highlighter for this, make sure it’s not shimmery as you want the finish to be more of a glow.
- Now lightly dust loose powder over the highlight and concealer to set.
- Apply your blush and bronzer, keep these matte as you don’t want to end up looking like a disco ball.
That’s it, 5 simple steps to achieve a natural strobe make up look! Anyone can do this! I would suggest trying out different colours so you get the best one for your skin tone. Typically, fair skin would suit champagne tones, pink champagne for light to medium skin, golden for olive skin and terracotta for dark skin.
