Makeup Trends 2016, 2017, 2018 How-To: New Beauty Technique, Better Than Contouring, Called Strobing – Beyoncé, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian West

Introducing the hottest new makeup craze: Strobing! Think the new and improved version of contouring… except a lot easier. Contouring is simply too much maintenance, while strobing uses only highlighting to enhance features and shape the face. Celebs like BeyoncéGigi Hadid, and Kim Kardashian are all fans of this flattering new look, and we’ve put together some products from glō minerals and Palladio , along with tips from glō minerals National Makeup Artist, Janeena Billera that will be sure to help you achieve glowing skin in a flash.

Strobing uses reflection on points of the face the catch light. With this technique, shadows are what you definitely want to avoid. Beyoncé’s complexion in a recent Instagram post of herself displays her #Flawless, emphasized facial features as light reflects off her cheeks and brows. Janeena Billera says, “A cream or liquid highlighter applied on the highpoints of the face gives a more natural finished glow.” Use glō minerals Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer ($29), made with a lightweight, creamy formula that leverages diamond powder technology to deliver superior, customizable correction to any skin tone. For added highlighting, we recommend Palladio’s The Definer: Contour & Highlight Duo ($12), which is the perfect two-sided tool for refining and highlighting facial features. Use the highlighting shade by applying to the high points of the face, including forehead, upper cheeks, and brow bones for maximum illumination.

Strobing means achieving a dewy, yet radiant complexion. Less makeup to apply and a healthy glow… two things we love for this summer! Gigi Hadid’s look at the Much Music Video Awards embodies ideal strobing goals. Highlighted high points and luminous cheekbones enhance not only her brows, but her entire complexion. Billera advises “An illuminating highlight powder can be worn on the same areas of the face for a more intense highlight. Powder is the best option for combination skin.” We recommend the glō minerals Shimmer Brick ($33.50) – it’s made of four gorgeous shades that can be used individually to highlight and define face, cheeks and eyes.  The Shimmer Brick in both Gleam and Luster are made with an exclusive blend including Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract to provide nutrients that are vital to maintaining skin’s healthy radiance.  Get the “Gigi Glow” with these shimmery compacts!

Using the strobing technique, it’s no question that the spotlight will be on you! In Kim Kardashian’s latest makeup tutorial on her website, we loved how she made her cheekbones radiate with shimmer through using this technique. Achieve this look with glō minerals’ Sheer Tint Illuminator ($31) which is a sheer, light-reflecting formula that visually smooths the appearance of fine lines and illuminates skin tone, creating a healthy and luminous glow. Billera says, “I love laying down a soft, luminescent cream/liquid highlighter to the center of the forehead, down bridge of the nose, orbital bone, temple, brow bone, cupids bow, inner corner of eyes and center of chin.” With such a radiant complexion, you may have to take some “Selfish”-inspired selfies too… your skin will look that good!

With strobing, show off your healthy-looking skin without the messiness and time-consuming contouring technique. By highlighting the best features of the face, you will naturally radiate any complexion, and your striking look will definitely turn heads.
