Contouring is Out, Strobing is In

I was never a fan of contouring. I tried doing it but I still think that it is not for me. Well, I just found out that there is a new (but not really that new) makeup trend which I like more. It is called “strobing” .

“Strobing? What is that?”

Strobing is the opposite of contouring. Instead of using dark shades of makeup to sculpt your face, you use shimmery products to illuminate your features and give you a natural glow. To make it easier for you, it is the same as highlighting. However, with strobing, it gives the look of having luminous skin that comes from within. This makeup technique makes you look more youthful and radiant.

How did I find out about strobing? I received a newsletter email from Glamourbox about Strobing 101. Let me share it with you… 😀

For this post, I would share with you the best beauty tip that I learned from my best friend – my husband (which would answer the BDJ Box’s Bruno Mars Challenge Day # 14). It is not exactly a beauty tip. It is more of an advice on how to see things in life.
