How to | Strobing


If you read our post about the new makeup trend called 'strobing', you will know it has hit the beauty world hard and is only growing in popularity. Today we will show you how to achieve a wearable strobing look suitable for day and night!


1.Start by moisturizing and priming the skin for an immaculate base - this is key if you want to achieve a successful strobing look. We love the Maybelline Baby Skin instant fatigue blur primer for a smooth canvas.

2.You can then go in with your base makeup. Strobing is all about a natural dewy finish so we are mixing our Garnier BB miracle perfector with some of the KIKO cosmetics face skin glow but you could also use the MAC Fix +. We are applying this with the Bella&Bear 'The Lynx' Flat Kabuki Brush.

3. We then blended our concealer with a little more of the KIKO Cosmetics Face Skin Glow and applied it under our eyes, on our chin and down the centre of our nose for that flawless glow, using our Bella&Bear 'The Ocelot' Large Concealer Brush.

4. Strobing is all about a dewy finish so be sure to only use translucent powder to set your concealer.

5. Prime the eyelids and apply a little Maybelline 24 hour colour tattoo eyeshadow in 'Eternal Gold ' all over the lid with your ring finger.

6. Curl your lashes using the Bella&bear 'Eye&Mighty' eyelash curler, holding for 10 seconds on each eye and apply your favuourite mascara

7. Now take a liquid highlighter such as the Jelly Pong Pong all over glow and apply to the high points of your face using your fingertips. We are applying to our cheekbones, browbones, down the centre of the nose, the cupids bow and the temples.

8. Then go in with you Bella&Bear 'The Jungle Cat' Tapered Highlighting Brush and a powder highlight - we love the MUA undress your skin highlighting powder, and gently apply over you liquid highlighter for gorgeous strobing glow.

9. To finish the look apply your favourite nude lipstick - check out our nude lips guide to find the right nude lipstick for your skin tone.

**For a more full on strobing look, you can also highlight your forehead and chin - this will work great for special occasions and nights out!**
