Makeup | How to Strobe (step-by-step)

Hi beauties! In my latest makeup look I posted, I was requested by Raven Alexis from Stylish Ranter to do a tutorial on how to get glowy skin or how to  do “strobing”. As you might have seen in my previous makeup looks, I love to add loads of shimmer to make my skin look luminous and dewy. I have recently tried a new strobing technique that I love and wanted to share.

1. Start by applying a liquid or cream illuminator with a brush or your fingers on the areas that you want to glow (top of the cheekbones, tip of the nose, forhead etc)
2. Apply a shimmery highlighter (powder) on those areas you applied the illuminator. Use a fan brush.
3. (OPTIONAL) Apply a shimmery brow pencil on your brow bone.
4. Finally, to set everything and to add additional glow, spray MAC Fix+ on those  areas you’ve applied the shimmery products.

Yaas! Highlight on fleek

  1. Thank you so much for doing this tutorial!!! I have the same exact highlighter and it never came out the way your did it!! I think it’s because of the brushes I use and I definitely need to head and buy the fan brush, then the fix plus because EVERYONE and their moms have it. Thank you so much for explaining it ❤️❤️😍
