Beauty 101: Strobing
If your reflection isn't delivering that complexion perfection, you need to get strobing, pronto! Nope, this isn't a retro dance move or a form of yoga, it's a super easy beauty hack that revitalises skin and bestows a healthy gleam and glow. With everyone from catwalk strollers to celebrity high rollers dabbling in this radiant trend, it's time to jump on the beauty bandwagon for dewy winter skin.
When it comes to strobing, think contouring but with a little less shading, and a lot more highlighter. The fundamental principal of this naturally-enhancing regime is to utilise what your mumma gave you, by applying light-reflecting make-up to the contours of your face that catch the most light naturally (think cheekbones, nose bridge, chin, and cupids bow).
The best news? With the right products and a little bit of know-how, it's SO simple to do. For the perfect base to your glow, apply a generous dose of facial moisturiser, blend on your favourite foundation, and get ready to shine... From shimmering crayons to palettes, and creams to pencils, the strobing tool kit is as varied as all those beautiful skin tones out there.
Available in dusty rose, right through to deep bronze and golden sand shades, whether you're channeling ice princess or sun-kissed Señorita, our range spans all the beauty-boosting shades your skin will LOVE. Intrigued? Get a lil' bit of inspo and a few tips below... (Pssst: our palettes also contain handy hints to help you achieve the final look, nothing could be easier!)

"Strobing is undoubtedly my favourite beauty trick for 2016. If you’re like me - short on time, skill, and sometimes patience - strobing is perfect because it provides maximum effect in minimal time. A few quick dashes of creamy PS…Highlight from our new Illuminate Me highlight palette gives me a dewy, healthy, and radiant look."

We adore this fresh, glowing look - it is ideal when late-night studying, mothering, or working wreaks havoc on your complexion! When it comes to selecting products, the best advice is to choose shades warmer than your natural skin tone for a brightening and warming effect.
