how to strobe (video tutorial)

How to strobe image 1

Welcome to my strobing tutorial!  I wanted to do an overview of how to strobe (aka how to highlight to the extreme) because it’s such a beautiful and easy way to add definition to the face without contouring.  Strobing alone will not give you chiseled features, but focusing the light to areas that you want to accentuate (aka highlight) will help add definition to the face by focusing the attention on the highlighted (strobed) areas.

By layering different products, you can build up the highlight to be as natural or as intense as you like it!  For some of you, this may mean stopping at the first layer fr a more natural glow.  If you like it even more intense than I do, you might add a second layer of cream highlight (maybe using High Beam or a Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid!) before moving on to the powder products.  However you like to strobe, I hope this video helps you master the technique!
