The idea of makeup is to make you look fresh, glowing and younger. A makeup techique that every celebrity makeup artist does for glowing, radiant skin is strobing.
Strobing is the makeup technique that takes highlighting to another level. It defines or sculpts your face, bringing forward your best features and accentuates them. The result is amazing— a radiant and chiselled face without layes of makeup.
Apply the highlighter on cheekbones, bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow, above and under the brow bones, inner corners of the eye, chin and even on collarbone and shoulder.
If you have oily skin, there is a strong possibility that strobing will make your face look greasy. Skip highlighting on your forehead area and switch to powder-based highlighters.
Celebrities such as Kareena Kapoor Khan,Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone were recently spotted embracing the strobing look. Check out how its done.
Actor Priyanka Chopra made heads turn at the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 in a Marc Jacobs white dress layered with a blue fur coat. The actor finished the look with strobing makeup and high ponytail.
Step 1: Cleanse and moisturise your skin. Let the cream get absorbed into the skin.

Step 2: Use a primer. Pick an illuminating primer that not only gives you subtle shine, but also fills up pores and smoothens your skin.
Apply your foundation and concealer as always. It is best to use a dewy-finish foundation or an illuminating base under your foundation for the perfect glow.

Step 4: Showtime! Now pick a highlighter (any cream, liquid or pressed highlighter) and place it on top of the high points of the face: cheekbones, bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow, above and under the brow bones, inner corners of the eye and the chin.
