CONTOURING IS OUT, STROBING IS IN

Yes, we all have to admit it, we liked the idea of contouring. And we liked the idea of trying it so that we can look super good. We saved pictures of “how- to’s”, followed tutorials on YOUTUBE and we all we said, “I have to try it some or other time, but actually it’s impossible to do and I’ll just keep looking at these gorgeous women doing it on the internet and pretend that I’m going to try it next week.

NOW there is a new trend. A top of the notch new way to do makeup which looks way more natural, less intense and (bonus) is really easy to do.. We welcome strobing into our lives.  What is strobing, you ask? It’s a fun and interesting term for highlighting, basically. Forget everything you learned about contouring, or well, tried to learn.

This extra highlighting will give you a dewy, shimmery, glittery more youthful glow. But because “dewy” can turn into “sweaty” super-quick, here are a few tips to keep you on the right track.

  1. Prep your skin with a hydrating moisturiser. Strobing is all about getting the perfect glow, so you’ll need to replenish dull, dry skin with a good moisturizer first. If you have naturally oily skin, use one that’s oil-free. My favourite moisturiser with a glow is Ponds Gold Radiance Day Moisturiser. With real gold micro particles. Yes, I’m addicted to this product and it’s perfect for strobing.

Next, use a highlighter shade that best matches your skin tone. To avoid the frosted ’90s look, make sure the highlighter you’re using complements your skin tone for a subtle sheen.

For a fair skin tone: Use champagne tones.

For a light- medium skin tone: Use pink champagne tones.

For an olive skin: Use golden tones.

For a dark skin: Use terracotta tones.

up

Only use the highlighter in spots that catch light: on your cheekbones, along your temples, down the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes and above your cupid’s bow on your mouth. This will enhance your natural features. Don’t spread the product all over your face, or else your glow will turn into a greasy mess.

If you have oily skin, skip areas like your forehead or chin, which have a little shine already. (Tip via Colleen O’Neill.) Then opt for matte bronzer, blush, or other facial products and only use a shimmery highlighter. To avoid looking like a disco ball, choose a matte formula for most of your makeup (primer, foundation, bronzer, powder etc.).

After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush or a damp makeup sponge. To avoid blobs of product and obvious makeup lines, make sure you blend any harsh edges of highlighter so it fades into the rest of your skin.

Avoid highlighting areas on your face that have breakouts — unless you want to spotlight your blemish. Yes, there are no other rules. It’s as easy as that.

Start strobing instead of contouring to highlight your eyes, contour your mouth, enhance your cheekbones and emphasize your pout 😉

Eyebrow game STRONG

Ladies we need to keep our eyebrows on point at all times.

Common mistakes we all make :

  • Ignoring your natural arch.
  • Matching your brow color to your hair color.
  • Over tweezing the top part of your eyebrows.
  • Laying the eyebrow make up on thick.
  • Trying to match both eyebrows perfectly ( & you end up over plucking )
  • Doing your brows first before your other make up.
  • Tweezing before a shower.

How-to-Perfectly-Shape-your-Eyebrow

Tips on how to do your eyebrows:

  1. Brush the eyebrows first.
  2. Use tweezer to remove that unwanted hair.
  3. Use a eyebrow pencil slightly lighter that your hair color,start shaping with the pencil.
  4. Use concealer around the brows and blend, this step will give your eyebrows some definition.
  5. Eyebrows on Fleek 🙂

Easy as that !
