The Gloss Report: strobing highlighters tried and tested
The widely touted secret to achieving a beautifully radiant complexion, strobing is the makeup technique taking the beauty world by storm. The redefinition of contouring, the trend sees sharp angles and severe lines take a backseat to glowing skin and glossy cheekbones to literally and figuratively see your features in a brand new light.
From high street to high end, illuminating products have seen a sudden surge in popularity in recent times - but which actually deliver most bang for your buck? This week, GTG HQ has been putting a whole roster of highlighters to the test to see which hold the key to strobing success. The effect we’re looking for? As MAC Director of Makeup Artistry Terry Barber told our Makeup Maniac , “Creating light in the complexion starts with selecting the appropriate tone to brighten its undertones. This could be anything from pure white through to a deep gold or pewter. The important thing is that the result is a porcelain, rather than tanned glow.”
