Strobing Is The New Contouring And Here's How To Do It

Consider this your mid-week beauty PSA: contouring has a new, chic cousin and the timing couldn’t be better. Ladies, say hello to strobing.

Contouring’s moment should have passed month’s ago, if you ask me. Between the overzealous passion that nearly every YouTuber ever has with emphasizing their cheekbones to the Kardashian-fueled love for all things bronze, contouring went from being a neat trick for parties and weddings to a basic addition to everyone’s beauty routine. Contouring every single day is not only hard; it’s freaking time-consuming, too.

And that’s precisely why the beauty world is going crazy for strobing, a fresher take on contouring. Instead of applying bronzer to the hollows of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your jawline, strobing just involves the strategic placement of highlighter. The trick is brushing or dabbing some on where the light naturally hits your face–your forehead, down your nose, on your chin, your cupid’s brow, your browbone and on your cheekbones–for an ethereal, lit-from-within look. If you’re not sure where else, just look out your window: wherever the sun hits the most, apply a bit of liquid light.

For a truly seamless application, opt for a cream or liquid product as opposed to a powder–they look more natural and are easier to blend into the skin. I personally worship NARS Illuminator in Copacabana and Benefit Girl Meets Pearl.
