Strobing vs Contouring

It’s finally time for contouring to take the back seat and let another fabulous makeup trend take the spot light!

Awful puns aside, let me introduce you to contouring’s newest replacement, #Strobing.

 

What is strobing you ask? Well for one, it’s so much easier to master than its friend contouring.

In fact all it is, is applying highlight to the highest points of your face.

It is the way of the future and Silk has the best product for the job!

 

Enter… SILKS ARGAN BODY SHIMMER

HOW TO STROBE USING SILK ARGAN BODY SHIMMER

  1. SKINCARE

Create a bright complexion by mixing Silk Argan Antioxidant Primer with a little body illuminating powder. Mix together and apply generously, all over your face.

 

  1. FOUNDATION

Once your skin is glowing in light-reflecting pigments, apply Argan Cream Compact Foundation to your face.

HOT TIP: I like to use a second Argan Cream Compact that is 2 shades lighter than my skin tone to highlight under my eyes, forehead, bridge of my nose and chin.

 

  1. SETTING

Set your foundation with a light sweep of Argan Mineral Powder along your t-zone. Please, please, please resist the urge to matte out your entire face! I promise it will pay off.

 

  1. HIGHLIGHT

Start #SilkStrobing by highlighting the high points of your face.

Using a large Silk fan brush apply Argan Powder Illuminator to the high points of the cheeks sweeping upwards towards the temple.

Sweep down the bridge of the nose, across the chin and on the tip of the nose.

Then use a small Silk fan brush or a Silk eye shadow brush to apply Illuminator to the brow bone, inner eye and cupids bow.
