How To: Strobing With Skincare

Watch LOOK's Beauty Writer Gaby show you how to perfect the art of strobing, using only skincare…

Strobing has been big on the make-up scene for a while now, but it’s strobing with skincare that can give you that real glow-from-within. Seen backstage at shows like Erdem, strobing with skincare allows your skin to look naturally glowing and radiant – without the metallic looking sheen of make-up products.

Perfect for the whole “no make-up” make-up look, strobing with skincare requires no skill whatsoever. And it leaves you with gorgeous, radiant skin in a flash. Winner all ’round, really.

So if you want to know how to ace your base, check out our simple step-by-step below. Oh and obviously, you can watch LOOK’s Beauty Advisor Gabrielle chat you through the look in the video above.

How To: Strobing With Skincare

Start by using a clear moisturiser (i.e. one without colour or loads of SPF) and smooth over your face. Gabrielle used Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream as it’s light-weight but still packs a punch! For a subtle sheen apply on your cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow only!

Next up, for an added highlight – use a petroleum jelly (Vaseline, you’ll always be our no.1.) Use where light would naturally hit the face and where you’d apply highlighter. So again that’s the the tops of your cheekbones, brow bone, cupid’s bow etc…

Finally, use a facial spray like Jason Wu x Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir to hydrate the skin. You can use the spritz as a facial mist throughout the day to top up on your glow.

And there you have it. Glowy skin, with absolutely no make-up necessary!
