Strobing Is the New, All-Natural Contouring

Looking for a less intense (and less time-intensive) way to highlight your face? Strobing, the latest makeup trend we've seen on everyone from runway models to our favorite bloggers, skips the chiseled features of a full contour in favor of dewy skin that glimmers in all the right places.

Instead of painting your face with graphic lines of bronzer and blush, the only product you'll need for strobing is an illuminating highlighterand lots of it. After getting a glowy base with Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint, take a formula like Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator and apply a generous amount to your cheek bones, the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, and at the corners of your eyes before blending in with your fingers or a sponge. It's the perfect lightweight look for those intimidated byor too lazy forcontouring but want leave the house with radiant, what-juice-cleanse-are-you-doing skin.

For more on how to master strobing, follow Birchbox BFF and beauty YouTuber Deepica's tutorial:
