Happy March! One of the many reasons I enjoy having this blog is the opportunity I get to share some of my favorite experiences and more importantly products with you! Although most people know what strobing is, many don’t know how to achieve it. I’m constantly being asked by my clients how to get that “glow” from within look, without looking…..sweaty. Below, I’ve not only picked out the best of highlighting game, but have also shared some tips I’ve learned along the way to get that perfect highlighted look.
The key here is to make sure you’ve chosen a highlighter that complements your skin tone for a subtle sheen. Long story short, we’re trying to avoid the 90’s frosted look. As you see above, the Anastasia Glow Kit (available in two different color combinations), has a variety of different shades that you can layer on top of one another or on their own. These options allow you to find the perfect highlighting shade for your skin tone. My personal favorite right now is the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. The color pay off is amazing and I’ve found that the shade itself is very universal and more importantly flattering.
Now for the placement, my rule of thumb is always to highlight the highest parts of your face (or spots that catch light) such as your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes, and above your cupid’s bow. You can also refer to this Cosmo image + the flawless Gigi Hadid on the best areas to highlight. To avoid looking overly shiny when using a highlighter, stick to matte bronzers and blushes for this particular look.
