Everyone is raving about the latest greatest makeup trend "Strobing". It is basically highlighting!
I don't believe it is a new technique, but it has now been named "Strobing" It is actually a pretty fantastic technique that is much easier than contouring.
If you are a fan of contouring, I wouldn't stop doing it, but perhaps add a bit of strobing in addition to your finished look.
Or new strobing highlighter is a soft shimmering golden peachy shade with slight pink undertones. It is a creamy powder texture.
You will want to apply it lightly as just a tiny bit goes a long ways.
How To Apply:
You apply to areas that accentuate the parts of your face that the sun or lighting naturally hits.
Above your cheekbones, brow bone, bridge of your nose, cupids bow (top of your lip), chin, collarbone, etc. If you enjoy strobing with various highlighting colors, I highly recommend our Whisper Mineral Color Collection! (we have been using them for years)

MINERAL FINISHING SETTING PRIMER POWDERS
What it is… Translucent finishing powders for the perfect natural finish! Extends the life of any foundation (powder/liquid) throughout the day while giving you the finish that you desire. We offer several different versions, please see them individually for detailed information.
My tips on how to use it… Using a soft kabuki or buffer powder brush, simply buff a very light layer all over your face. Buff in circular or downward strokes according to your preference. For oily skin, pay particular attention to the T-Zone of your face (forehead, nose, cheeks & chin)
For fine facial hair, we recommend applying finishing powder in downward strokes following the natural hair growth.
Why I love it… I love to change my finish according to my mood, desire or occasion. So many flawless choices of matte, semi-matte, satin sheen, or an illuminating glowing finish with the added benefits of reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, wrinkles and prolonging my overall makeup application.
