The Main Differences Between Strobing, Highlighting, and Contouring

Strobing has caught fire online, but many makeup artists and beauty fanatics agree on one thing: this isn't a new trend! It's essentially highlighting, with a twist. What's the main difference, though?

While most pair highlighter with contour, strobing uses shimmery shades of highlighter to accentuate features, creating the illusion that the face is contoured without actually defining the features. Instead, it brings all of your features forward and leaves a dewy, glowing finish.

Here are some tips and products I found helpful when I began strobing, especially if you tend to have oily skin.

Products used:
Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish ($19)
Colourpop Cosmetics in Monster ($11)
Lorac Pro Contour Palette ($84.99)
BareMinerals Seamless Shaping Brush ($55)
