Strobing Tutorial For Oily Skin | Style Survival

Healthy Skin Tip: If you are going to be outside for a long period of time, you should spray your hair with a sunscreen spray to protect your hair and scalp from the sun's damaging rays. Sunscreen spray will prevent your hair color from fading and will protect your scalp from sun damage.
Strobing has caught fire online, but many makeup artists and beauty fanatics agree on one thing: this isn’t a new trend! It’s essentially highlighting, with a twist. What’s the main difference, though?

While most pair highlighter with contour, strobing uses shimmery shades of highlighter to accentuate features, creating the illusion that the face is contoured without actually defining the features. Instead, it brings all of your features forward and leaves a dewy, glowing finish.

Here are some tips and products I found helpful when I began strobing, especially if you tend to have oily skin.

Products used:
Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish ()
Colourpop Cosmetics in Monster ()
Lorac Pro Contour Palette ()
BareMinerals Seamless Shaping Brush ()

  1. I love the ColourPop highlighters so much. Usually cream products just want to melt off because I get so oily, but these kick ass!!

  2. Hahaha yes Kirbie! I do not get this whole “strobing” thing. It’s just like wait you mean highlighting? The thing we’ve all been doing for years? Another kickass video so impressed with popsugar beauty!

  3. you don’t have idea how to do strobing, the strobing is before the foundation, this is for basic bitch*s. so shame on you.
