The Transformative New Makeup Technique Every Bride Should Master

  |   By Alison McGill

Contouring is so yesterday. Makeup pros and A-listers alike are abandoning the severe, chiseled look in favour of skin that's considerably more natural (but still equally as pretty). These days it's all about strobing.

But what exactly does that mean? Don't worry, there are no disco lights involved. Instead, illuminating and highlighting products are employed to make your skin seriously glow. The Kardashians, Jenners, Gigi Hadid and Beyoncé are all strobing fans. Just check out their Instas to see the glam effect.

Michelle Rosen, a Toronto-based makeup artist with Judy Inc. broke down the makeup technique for us, explaining that it's a look that's super easy to achieve at home. “Strobing involves combining shimmer creams on well-moisturized skin to give a glowy complexion,” she says. “It’s a technique that’s made for brides, because not only does it give you a healthy-looking glow in real life, but it also helps to make your skin look incredible in photos.”

Rosen says the secret to strobing success is having the right products. For a highlighter she loves NARS The Multiple in Copacabana. Start with clean skin and apply a lightly-tinted moisturizer all over. Apply highlighter to your finger then dab on cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, upper lip, a little on the forehead and a touch on the collarbones. Apply the rest of your makeup then stand back and marvel in your gorgeous, shimmering skin.
