The past year has been all about “Contour”. Dreamed by many women but not achieved by everyone, due to this, maybe you thought your experience with makeup was over, but I must tell you this is not the case! Apparently this is no longer in fashion and in my humble opinion Countour is a make up recommended for night as it requires a lot of product, various tones of concealer and most importantly, a lot of your time blending.
This is why today I want to talk about "Strobing". Maybe it sounds complicated, but don't worry girls, it is not. Consists of illuminating your face for a more Nude look, however, the illuminator plays the leading role. More than the natural and earthy tones, the idea is to highlight (without exaggerating) in the key points of your face.
As a basic routine I recommend to follow your usual steps. I mean your primer (if you use it), then concealer and foundation, then a little touch of blush and here is where the highlighter comes to work. It could be in a pen (@Lancome, Teint Miracle), in cream (@narsissist Copacabana Illuminator) or in powder (@Maccosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish, Lights Capade).
Giving light to you nose, chin, above the blush (that you already applied on your cheekbones but more towards the eye), giving it that special touch. Also below your eyebrows and between the lips and nose (cupid's arch). A little on your forehead (if it's small), and to finish you can't forget your favourite mascara and a gloss! if you want to give your lips some colour, you could apply a small amount of a nude lipstick and then a sheer gloss. TA DAH! If you practice it would take you 15 minutes, I promise.
I hope you enjoyed this tip and will give your routine a touch of light. I recommend the Strobing for the day, specially during this SpringSummer that is soon approaching.
